Just thought that I would share this before he is packed off. I suppose you could call him my first commission, but when I was asked by the 'Provost Marshal' if I could paint up this 'Bolt Action' miniature as a gift for a colleague of his, then how could I refuse? There were, however, a few required specifications that had to be adhered to. The first, a greying beard, then a Royal Military Police cap and if possible the addition of a Priest's stole!
Well never one to shy away from a challenge here was the result and I have to say that I will be sorry to see him go! It was really great fun to do with the stole been made from a piece of foil, trimmed and folded into place. Apparently destined for a serving Army Chaplain's desk!
Nice miniatue! :)ReplyDelete
Truly excellent work sir!ReplyDelete
Major Terntadust never looked so good. ;-) Nicely done!ReplyDelete
Nice paintjob I do really like that fig top stuff sir!ReplyDelete
Thank you all; enjoying a couple of lazy days after the Christmas celebrations, but hope to get a couple more pieces of the painting table before the New Year.ReplyDelete
I assume the fig is originally from a WWII range so why would he hold the cross like that??
Paul, the fig is Major Terntadust from Warlord Games Bolt Action WWII line.ReplyDelete
Very well done Michael.ReplyDelete
Michael great work as ever. Love the foil work, its on my attempt list for 2012ReplyDelete
That is a great present for someone of the cloth, especially a chaplain. Wonderfully painted and based, a total winner.ReplyDelete
A great figure, well done. I am intrigued to know what sort of gaming he'll be used for. Looks like some kind of vampire bashing?ReplyDelete
Great painting, MichaelReplyDelete
Wonderful job and the conversions adds a lot to it: now I want one for my WW2 Brit Army!!!ReplyDelete
