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.
