Dio-Bolical Monday No: 46 – “Death & Taxes: The Earls Visit – Part 24”

This week I managed to get another figure off of the workbench, this time a nice little peasant figure from Other World Miniatures.  I’m not entirely sure where this chap will go on the diorama yet, probably somewhere adjacent to the Barn, but he has a well sculpted face so ideally I will look to have him facing forward if I can make that look right.

The original figure came with a pitch fork but I swapped that for a scythe which was included in the accessories pack which I purchased with the Barn building from Table Top World.  Hardly a conversion but I do think he looks better for the change.

No idea what I plan to do next week, I’ll see how the mood grabs me and how the time goes.  I have plenty of other figures to paint, including some animals as well but I’m keen to get started on the final building.  Perhaps I’ll push myself to get another couple of figures painted and use the idea of starting the Barn as a reward for getting them done.

Some images of the peasant below.

  1. Love the Otherworld minis, wish I could afford to buy more of them. Great job on the paints, nice pick on the different brown tones. Nice pin striping on the pants and wood grain on the scythe.

  2. Great work, that face has come out top notch well done. I also really like the free hand trousers very subtle!
    And look at you doing a conversion! They get you hooked simple you know, next it’s be a head swap and before you know it you will be making orcs with guns for hands and swords for feet just like your hobby son!

  3. I really like this guy. The sculpt has a lot of character and charm. As a result, I fully support your plan to make sure this guy ends up being near the front of the diorama 🙂

  4. Another great job! Without seeing the original figure it’s hard to be sure but the way he looks now very much suggests “resting mid-way through doing some agriculture” whereas the pitchfork might have looked like he was part of an angry mob – hardly the reception the Earl was hoping for!

    1. Thank you and funny you should say that because that was pretty much my thinking at the time. The pose now is now very much one of stopping work to watch the Earl and his entourage pass by and hopefully that will translate into the diorama in due course.
