Lockdown in the UK continues and will do so for some considerable time, weeks if not months. As with the previous ones I am reliant on the hobby to help see me through the dark days. The blog and the miniatures will hopefully keep me busy enough to pass the time until it is my turn to receive a vaccination and the prospect thereafter of a new world. So far this strategy is proving to be successful and this week saw me pick up another Hasslefree figure to sink my teeth into.
This little chap is from the Hasslefree fantasy human range and goes by the name of Halvdan. When it comes to figures I do like a nice simple standing pose and the key feature of this one for me is the angle of the head. The tilt might be minor but is makes such a big difference in my opinion. To me the guy looks like he is tired, either from walking, fighting or working and is in a reflective mood. A great sculpt I think and a joy to paint.
As for the painting and the base work I don’t have a great deal to say. I went for muted colours and simply chose green because I had done a lot of blue lately! That’s about as deep as my thinking goes at times.
