From PaulSS: [Sarah the Sorceress] Princess Brenda (25pts)

Princess Elizabeth c.1945 was the freebie given away at Partizan 2012 and it's been shamefully sat in my backlog ever since.

But, I've managed to navigate my way across the dungeon from The Aquifier through to The Hall of Traps and now need to get to The Larder pronto. "Brenda" is offered up in exchange for a swift transit across the dungeon.


I think, like the majority of Partizan figures the sculptor is most probably Martin Baker.


For those interested in the colours used, her hat and battledress tunic and hat are from a base of VMC English Uniform, the skirt, shirt and tie are from VMC Khaki.


A single 28mm figure and the Sarah the Sorceress bonus will add 25 points to my total.

  1. Marvelous work on what looks to be a very cheerful version of the contemporary version of Elizabeth.

      It's 1945, she is happy because she is waiting for a sailor to show her a good time ;)

    1. Thank you.
      I do sometimes wonder about the consistency of shade of some Vallejo colours. Only last week I replaced my 25 years old Medium Blue (yes really 25 yr old) and the replacement is definitely a different hue. But I have changed in 25 years, why should not the colours ;)
