I'm in a bit of a painting fug at the moment, I seem to be making any kind of excuse not to pick the brush up, trouble is I've got so much stuff still to paint that I've just gotta keep plodding on.
Anyhow whilst in the middle of this hazzy fug I've managed to paint up Anne's 3 figures that she sent me after Monty gave away his prize in my 400K Prize Giveaway.
The figures all come from Thunderbolt Mountain miniatures and were sculpted by Tom Meier. The first two are from his FIW collection and are 1/48th scale around the 40mm mark. For the Woodland Indian you had a choice of weapons I chose the two hand to hand combat weapons instead of the musket, I thought it look more dynamic?? I also chose not to give him any warpaint, the face was sculpted so well I didn't want to slap loads of colour all over it and spoil the effect.
The second figure is of an American Frontiersman, I went with green and blue for his dress, influenced by pics of Rogers Rangers. Unfortunately he was a complete bugger to photograph, I had to alter the shade and highlight the photos quite a lot just to try and see his face. I think its the way he's leaning forward as he's running???
Lastly we have a 25mm casting of Sir Percevale from Arthurian legend, I kept him quite simple and painted him all white, apart from his helmet and shield, but was very pleased how he came out. What happened to the foot figures Anne??
These are winging their way across the Atlantic as I type and hopefully will be with Anne in a couple of days!!!!
