Who's Lord British? Within the world of the old Ultima PC RPG series he is the king of all the lands of Britannia. He is the alter-ego of the real-life creator of the Ultima series, Richard Garriott. The in-game portraits of Lord British were all drawn after Garriott's own face. A classic example of an eccentric millionaire, Garriott recently employed his video game wealth to become one of the world's first space-tourists.
Anyway, getting back to 28mm models, I also found a great one for Lord Blackthorn. He's the baddie that caused all sorts of trouble in 1988's Ultima V. Incidentally, if you're at all interested in playing this classic game, the brilliant team at Lazarus have re-released Ultima V with 3D graphics, playable on your 21st century computer.
If you want to see painted minis from this project click on the "Ultima XXVIII" label link bellow. So far I've painted the Avatar, Iolo, Dupré, the town guard, and some gremlins. If you're an old Ultima fan, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
