Rather unexpectedly, I was called away from home over the last week or so and as a result my Oldhammer projects have stalled. I am now home once more and can brush the dust off my Nurgle warriors, not to mention post out my remaining trades. This blog-post will have to suffice for a while as it is the last of my draft pieces and now that you are reading these words, I have nothing new to draw back on.
You may remember a week or so ago, before my sudden disappearance, I was blogging about bringing once forgotten old miniatures back to life with the life giving triad of Dettol, Undercoat and Ink Wash. I called the little project 'The Unusual Suspects' and at the time of writing I have got no further than these two figures. Sorry!
But, these two gents look remarkably more healthy than the last time we saw them, don't they? What I like about the pair is how similar their outlines are. Both stooping, and holding sacks. Jes' contains goodness-knows-what and the miller's some nice '80s sculpted grain.
Neither figure took me long and it was fun messing around with skin tones and employing a little colour harmony on the jacket of the poacher. Hopefully, these figures will be on a wargames table somewhere soon!
