Burke and Hare?

 No story today. But another two figures from the painting challenge. These were originally planned to be finished before Christmas for the "villains" bonus round. Unfortunately I missed the date. So I did think to get them done for the "Casualty" round but as I had the dead spaceman for that they did not make that round either. Therefore they were just finished for the sake of being finished.

So now I have two random grave diggers dressed in Victorian clothing. I call them grave diggers as they are from west wind productions Empire of the Dead range and named after the infamous Burke and Hare who were a pair of Victorian Grave robbers and murderers. As I said I call them grave robbers, but they could equally be treasure hunters, archaeologists or run of the mill grave diggers or anything else I can imagine. I won't say Tomb Raiders though as let us be honest they in no way resemble Lara Croft!


Don't get too excited and think I am heading into EotD! I am not! But they are done and will go into my wild west/weird west figure box.

That's it for today. Thanks for looking. All the best Clint.

  3. Great work Clint! They certainly seem like grave robbers, the faces are especially well done.

    And I know, you're "not" going into EOTD, but I'm looking forward to see more of the genre! :D

    1. Very eclectic figure tastes, it has to be said. I am pleased you realise I am not doing EotD and that these are a one off. (well mostly!)
      Thanks Mathyoo.

    1. Thank you. Ray has given me your email address again so I will be in touch. (As mentioned above I have lost my email address book).
      Yes and Ray has your Analogue hobbies winning figure and the one from Anne O'Leary. I am sure he will deliver though.
