“Ulfred” – 28mm Hasslefree Miniature

I mentioned in last Saturday’s post that I am attracted to figures which I consider have a nice pose.  Of course this is a personal thing but this is another figure which ticks the box as far as I am concerned.  I like the casual stance of Ulfred.  It’s simple but effective and he has a “don’t mess with me” feel about him, he exudes calmness and complete control.

I went mostly for muted colours as theses seemed appropriate.  The wolf head on his tunic was embossed so no claims to freehand on this one.  Base wise I went for a simple bit of landscape comprising of a a couple of slate chippings, a bit of a twig to form a small broken tree and some Milliput and plaster board dust to complete the groundwork.  Bits of grass tufts were added to the 25mm base to provide some much needed colour.

  1. I thought of Vikings because of the hairstyle as well but the wolf on his shirt looks like it could be from The Starks in Game of Thrones to me. I don’t know if the sculptor deliberately mixed the two together but they work together very well. You did a great job painting this one up (as usual) and your keen eye for well-posed miniatures served you well here I’d say!
