Fi, Fimir, Fo, Fum - Classic Citadel Chaos - for fun

I've been collecting these wacky dudes for about 2 years. Trying to pick up figures here and there to build up a raiding-party size force. I really didn't know much about these but they passed the 'hmm, interesting' test.

My main aim was to collect at least one of each of old metal range. Not wanting to pay through the nose, I've taken my time and I think I've managed it (I didn't consider the limited edition version because it is a bit small). The remaining figures are the good old HeroQuest board game plastic figures that aren't too hard to find and make up the numbers.

After much thought I decided green skin was suitable for the fighty types and brown skin for the magic characters. Definitely a nice change and a chance to practice painting techniques I don't normally use.

I kept to my usual basing style as I'm not much into skulls and things. All on 40mm square magbases from Shogun. Not a fan of the original GW bases.

Hope you like the photos.

Red eyes on the Fimm give away their blood lust

Fimir Nobles - well armed and armoured and nasty up close
Magic trio. Two green-eyed Dirach mages flank the powerful Meargh
Smooth tails are a give away of their non-fighter status


  1. They look great. I always did fancy collecting them but never got around to it

  2. Blast from the past. Whatever happened to Fimir?
