Yeti

This is a http://newlinedesigns.co.uk/ Bigfoot miniature. Having looked at images of Bigfoot and Yeti's It came clear that Bigfoot were usually shown as being brown and Yetis are shown as being white. It seems that these mythical creatures are so similar as to being just about the same thing. That being the case maybe the colouring is geographic in nature. This is of course speculation. As I have chosen a white colour scheme we can think of this one as a yeti and not Bigfoot. A really nice one piece sculpt. (The Ninja is shown only for scale.) Painting was simple. White undercoat with black ink washes to get the main fur colour then my normal techniques on the flesh. I won't say the figure painted itself, but it was a nice straightforward figure to paint. To be honest it was the base that gave me the biggest problem. I decided that I wanted patches of snow on the base which were the problem.You can just see them on the base. They look better in real life, but you'll just have to take my word on that.
The figure was purchased at Broadside in June. Which means it made its way to the top of the painting list in double quick time. I do have a second pose, but that one is not fighting quite so hard to get coloured up. But maybe soon. Someone (sorry I forgot who) mentioned "Drug crazed Chinese Zombies". That simple comment (I think on the Zombie Bloggers Association before you search all the blog comments) sparked an idea in my head which has since spiralled out of control. Luckily it has not resulted in a spending spree (yet). It has resulted in a frantic Internet search for both information and miniatures.
Well that's today post. I shall post again on Thursday. Thanks for looking. See you again in a couple of days! All the best Clint.

  1. He looks, great Clint. White is hard to do and even harder to photo.

    You'll have to re-comment (if you can be bothered) As I tried to delete the comment, you yourself deleted and ended up removing all 3 comments doh!
