The briefest of posts today to showcase a new villager for my ‘Witchfinder General’ project, the pig herd! This rather charming sculpt is my first experience of ‘Midlam Miniatures’ and I have to say that they are rather lovely to work with.
Requiring next to nothing in the way of preparation and not overly fussy in detail she was painted very quickly, ready to take her turn toiling on the land. Perhaps a little smaller than I am used to, especially next to the ‘Redoubt Enterprises’ miniatures, she still holds enough character to make a welcomed addition to the collection.
Her drift of sows are from the aforementioned ‘Redoubt Enterprises’ and those of you who kept a keen eye on proceedings in the ‘VI Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge’ will recognise them from my ‘Risk-taker’ entry, where they were part of a loosely formed idea to pay homage to the celluloid gems that are the ‘Mad Max’ franchise. They have simply had the bases repainted from a dusty desert to a more fertile field.
