Frasier and the grave digger

 Two more today. The town undertaker Frasier together with another figure who I think is the grave digger but not sure. Frasier wearing a sailors jersey and in dark blue because of his Naval backstory. The Grave digger because he was a spare figure that matt once again converted and armed with a rifle yet still carries his trusty spade. he wears dark clothing so not to show the dirt but he could equally be a road mender or the stoker on a train. So I will let Matt create any background he wants.

Not sure who I will paint next so it could be anyone tomorrow!


Until then, take care, have fun and get some painting done.
All the best from Clint

  1. Another corking pair, Clint. I don't know how you manage to churn these out so fast!?! Frazier looks suitably grim-faced and I like the grave-digger's pose too. Splendid stuff.

    1. Thanks Blax. I paint a little EVERY day. it does not have to be a lot, but 5 mins each and every day soon makes a difference on the horde of figures.

    2. Completely agree with all of the above. Amazing on how quick you paint them up, but also that even a little bit a day helps! Great to hear that, and great to keep seeing pieces up on your blog mate!

    3. Thanks Kyle. Feeling lazy today, NO PAINTING. But I have prepped 10 figures ready for undercoating tomorrow.

  3. They really are a great pair and I like that grave digger with his trouser legs tied up!

  4. Good job Clint! Daily painting sessions, however brief or long, are certainly paying off for you!

    1. Thanks Paul It is something I have been doing for about 20 years. So much a habit now I do find it hard to take a day off!

  5. Very characterful, aren't they? Perfect for pretty much any game set in the first half of the 20th century.

    1. Thank you C6. Yes one club member is talking about a "White Chapel" game and they can be used for that as well as VBCW.

  6. Another great pairing Clint and I particularly like "Frasier" (even though I can't see the resemblance). Your usual high standard of brushwork is very much in evidence on their faces - on the larger piccies!

    1. Thank you Joe. I did not see the resemblance either, I think a better painter would bring it out though.
