Amtgard / Dagorhir
I've been pretty active with LARPing lately. My Amtgard freehold, Ember Shoals, has pretty much died off.

Four Against Darkness
Last weekend, my wife and I explored another dungeon using Four Against Darkness (the game report is over on my Tales of the Templars blog). Our sessions have inspired me to start a new project. I've been thinking about miniaturizing our game sessions - that is using miniatures for our games.
I prefer small scales so I am intrigued by the idea of a 6mm dungeon crawl. I found some a post on TMP that offered some guidance. Further research turned up some nice-looking figures by Perfect Six Miniatures.
The major problem with these is that our adventuring party is made up of anthropomorphic cats. I wonder if I could add ears and tails to the above figures to "catify" them.
I found that Splintered Light does a range of "leonines" in 15mm. These could work, although they appear more classical than medieval.
- Cooper (our warrior) = lion chieftain
- Thomasina (cleric) = lioness guard (perhaps modify the weapon to a mace)
- Onyx (rogue) = panther assassin
- Ollie (halfling) = lynx scout
- Buster (elf) = cougar archer
My biggest issue with them, though, is that they aren't sold individually. I would need to buy multiple packs to get the figures I need.
