Cream of Tartar

3 Mar

I’ve been planning a game based on the Golden Compass film for quite a while, and now I have my Tartars for the climactic battle scene…


OK, they are not exactly as in the film but they are near enough for us. The figures are 28mm Napoleonic French Imperial Guards from Wargames Foundry. I bought two packs (16 figures) which were being sold off cheap via their Ebay outlet.

They are based on 38mm white plastic discs which are actually the backs of badges. The wolf or dog daemons are Twilight Creations Zombie Dogs. These are quite cheap and you get 100 to a bag. Very useful in so many ways.


Being astute, you’ll notice only 15 figures pictured. One came with a severed head so I have kept him behind and may conduct experiments on him to see if I can come up with a passable resemblance to a Winkie Guard…winkj
