As far as my miniatures go this week sees a different manufacture/supplier – Other World Miniatures. If memory serves me correctly, and at my bloody age it’s doing well if it does, then this was the third of three figures I bought more than a year or so ago. The other two were a Rat Catcher that featured in Miniatures and Musings No: 40 and a Medieval Knight which I used in a mini diorama entitled The Temptress. For far to long this little chap has been sitting primed in the to do pile.
I do like figures which I consider have some charachter about them and this little chap falls into that category which is why he appealed to me at the time and still does. All of which adds to the mystery of why it has taken me so long to get around to painting and basing him. All in all a nice little two part casting where the arms and the book are a seperate piece to the main body.
I am reminded to take another look at the Other World website as I seem to recall they had some other very nice figures too. But can I can justify any new purchases? Of course I can!
