From RoyW - 28mm: Two Men, a Woman and a Dog (18 points)

Hello everyone, Seasons Greetings and All The Very Best for 2015!

May I present for your viewing pleasure my latest painted offerings, in 28mm.


The first miniature is by Pulp Figures, from Canada. This miniature was purchased alongside an order for the limited edition Movember Charity figure, that Bob Murch produced during November 2014. Yes, I grew a big (ginger) moustache for the event, even though my family hated it!


The second figure is produced by Ironclad Miniatures, from Wales. It is part of their Victorian Sci-Fi character range and is named "Alan Quartermain". There is two issues with the sculpt, I found. One, the gun looks very weird, featuring no firing mechanism barring the trigger. Two, the fingers cradling the rifle are too short, appearing to be only sculpted to the first knuckle. Saying all that, I still love the mini'.


The third figure is again by Ironclad Miniatures, and is again part of their Victorian Sci-Fi range. The miniature is named "Dr. Watson". This is the first figure that I've managed to paint eyebrows on, that don't look out of place!


Lastly, and I'm going to include this figure even if it is omitted from the points, is a Warlord Games hound, from their Ancient Celts range. Warlord Games are based in England, if we're being pedantic.

Points wise: three 28mil' foot figures are worth fifteen points.
As to the dog, well if it produces any points I'll gratefully receive them.

From Curt:
Lovely work Roy! I really like your smooth paint style on these miniatures. I always have soft spot for Bob Murch's characterful sculpts and this one is no exception (I love the sense of her hacking through the jungle of some undiscovered South Pacific island). I  I've not seen anything from Ironclad Miniatures before and after seeing yours I'm definitely going to have to check them out. My favourite of the batch is your Dr. Watson. As you say, the (ginger) eyebrows really work on him, good call!

  1. Very nice painting work. I like a lot the "Pulp Figures" miniature; they have a lot of very particular character in them.

  7. Stunning work Roy. Each and every one is gorgeous. Is it just me or do the eyes on the chap in the bowler hat follow you round the room?

    1. They only follow you round the room if you have a guilty conscious! I suspect you have much to feel guilty about! Hee Hee!

      The miniature in question, his eyes do look wonky (when I have a good look). They're painted as if peering in one direction, but in the photo the black line I work from is making it appear as if the pupils are directed towards opposite sides.
      :) Oh well.

  11. Great stuff! I specially like the first two mini's they really have that "And Beyond" feel to them.

      Yes, I, too, like the explorer look that those two miniatures have.

  12. Great work, Roy! I like Dr Watson the best! He has an "oh great" feel with his pose and face! The pup looks looks very nice too!

  13. @Curt: Thank you.
    Ironclad Miniatures: You often see one of their miniatures (a 28mm Victorian lady with a pistol in one hand and a bunch of flowers in the other) featuring in articles of the wargaming magazines alongside Foundry models, but Ironclad are never credited.
    A lot of people will recognise the company's 28mm Victorian Sci-Fi steam fighting machines, as quite a few people use them, though have bought them from a third-party and don't credit (again) Ironclad Miniatures.

    1. @The Kiwi: Thank you. I've got to admit that the figures sure did make painting a lot easier.

  15. I really like the work you've done on these figures. I've painted the first one before, and like all Bob Murch sculpts, she is fun to paint. You did a better job on her than I did, especially the wood grain on the rifle. The dog is especially fetching.
    Bravo sir.
