Howl at the moon!

Well tonight is all hallow's eve and many will have you believe that it is tonight when all manner of ghoulish creatures will roam the earth intent on causing mischief and striking fear into the unweary.  There is of course the alternative opinion that the whole thing has been dreamt up by those looking to exploit all in their pursuit  of making a fast profit, but for fear of becoming a bit 'grumpy old man' about the whole thing I have used it as an excuse to order up another very splendid miniature from the wonderful 'Hasslefree Miniatures'.

This suitably fiendish (and suitably Victorian!)  miniature is another of their wonderful sculpts and a real delight to work with even if it did require a modicum of construction.  'Wolfie'  came with a slotted base but I wanted to make a bit more of a feature of the whole thing so snipped  off the excess and pinned the figure to a lipped one complete with homemade floorboards.

It is of course another excuse to get out the recently constructed cemetery terrain pieces an capture the moment on film when the beast bursts from from the restraints of his straightjacket.  Such a great and dynamic pose and all in all I was really pleased with the outcome.

There was a companion piece to this that I have started but what with one thing and another I didn't get around to finishing it time.  With a bit of luck and a following breeze I hope to get it finished this week.


  1. Scarry... Good theme at the right time!

  2. Fantastic mate. That Grave yard is really earning its keep

  3. Nice dramatic looking beast!! What is the bit of metal attached to the right sleeve???

  4. Excellent detail and such a dramatic looking figure, perfect for this time of year!!

  5. Thanks all, just couldn't resist at this time of year! Another great sculpt from the chaps at Hasslefree.

  7. He looks great in the graveyard...excellent work

  8. Hasslefree do some great figures and I have to say I thought that this was not on of them. I am so glad to be wrong. Great paint work and base that works so well together. Good piece.

  9. This is my first time go to see at here and i am genuinely impressed to read everthing at one place.

  10. Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be
    at the internet the easiest thing to keep in mind
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst
    other folks think about worries that they plainly do
    not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined
    out the entire thing with no need side-effects , people could
    take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
