Gallery: Surtr and the Sons of Muspel

Yes, "Surtr and the Sons of Muspel" would make a good name for a rock band.
I thought I would share pictures of one of my Hordes of the Things armies.  I might have posted these pics elsewhere, but I haven't put them up on this blog.  This army is based loosely on Norse mythology.  The official name is Surtr and the Sons of Muspel, but we usually just refer to it as the fire army:

Behemoth general (Surtr, King of the Fire Giants) @ 4AP    4
Behemoths x 2 (fire giants)  @ 4AP                                   8
Beasts x 3 (raging wildfires)  @ 2AP                                  6
Warband x 2 (Sons of Muspel)  @ 2AP                              4
Blade (Son of Muspel)  @ 2AP                                          2

Without further ado, Surtr and the Sons of Muspel:
Surtr (center) is a DDM Fire Titan, the fire giants are DDM Huge Fire Elementals.
The beasts are Large Fire Elementals from the Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures line.
The Sons of Muspel: one blade element and two warband elements.
The warbands are Angry Flame Spirits from the World of Warcraft minis game.
This blade is a Fire Archon from DDM.

My wife painted the bases for this army.  Didn't she do a good job?

The funny thing about that caption is that is exactly what I thought when I saw the header myself. Know thy audience.

Where did you get the orange plastic flamy critters?

Great minds think alike.

These were all ebay purchases, if I recall.
