Warhammer Monty Python Holy Grail Miniatures

I’ve never actually played Warhammer, but from what I understand it’s a lot like Dungeons and Dragons except players use actual miniatures on table-top landscapes to represent their armies and movements. While I’m sure the game itself is fun, players spend hours upon hours buying, painting, and customizing their miniature armies.

Recently I saw a link to a couple of pictures that made my heart warm, my jaw drop and my eyes pop out all at the same time! Warhammer player Aaron Chapman created his own set of Monty Python and the Holy Grail miniatures for Warhammer. I don’t have much more information than the pictures Aaron posted, but this is one case where the pictures really do speak for themselves.

Here is The Black Knight …

.. and the brave, brave Sir Robin (along with the Three-Headed Giant).

Now go, and bring me … a shrubbery.

“On the Set” Books Feature Photos of Miniature Studio Sets

If you like TV and miniatures, there are often too few places where your passions might intersect. Sure when an action or Sci-Fi show is popular, you might get a model kit, but beyond that what can you expect? I thought the same thing until I stumbled across the “ON THE SET” book series by Charles Brogdon. Now available in two volumes, these books showcase in photos Mr. Brogdon’s keen ability to recreate classic TV sets in miniature. You can browse through some samples of On the Set at its official Flickr page and then drop by On the Set’s Blurb.com page and order a copy for yourself.

I believe it is the only book in the world featuring a photo of the Wings’ set done in miniature. A++.
