Just the briefest of posts to showcase this new addition to the ‘Witchfinder General’ collection of villagers and non-combatants. The shepherd, dog and sheep are all from ‘Redoubt Enterprises’ and retain that familiar, chunky feel that I have come to appreciate from their miniatures.
I have to confess that I was initially underwhelmed by the set when I started to paint them, as my colour palette seemed a little obvious and bland, but was delighted to see the piece come ‘alive’ with the addition of a splash of paint to man’s best friend. The dog is, in fact, sculpted to the shepherd’s base, but is a lovely addition and certainly increased my appreciation of the set.
The sheep, whilst anatomically a bit awkward, will also be used as forage tokens in one of the 'Witchfinder' scenarios as well as adding to the general look of the table. Sadly though none of these can be counted towards my tally in the current ‘Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge’ as they were started before the challenge began, but nonetheless it is good to see them posted here.
