I was Waiting for you to spot that!

Yes another figure painted for Matt. Just on the off chance that you do not recognise who this is supposed to be, I have put in a subtle clue in the form of a Youtube video at the end of the post! If you need to watch the video because you don't know who the figure is supposed to be, DO NOT ADMITT it to anyone. But if you want to watch the video because you like it then good on you. I did have mixed feelings about the remake of such an Iconic childhood memory. But the trailer has calmed my nerves about it quite nicely.

The figure is of course by Bolt Action and 28mm in size. All painted in acrylics and varnished it will be handed to Matt on Sunday just before lunch.

I will be painting more of the cast this week and hope to do a daily blog post until they are all finished.

Thanks for looking and some more tomorrow. Until then take care have fun and tune in tomorrow for another figure from the range!!!

All the best Clint

  3. I had my trepidation's when I first heard about the movie, but it does look like they are going to do it justice.

    I'm buying up these same figures a bit at a time. For me they are very expensive as Warlord does not simply convert the currency. They double the amount and the set would cost me nearly $100.00.

    You've done a great job with him. Are you going to paint him in his civvies?

    1. Thanks Anne I am sorry they are so expensive for you. I am sure I could buy them and ship them to you for less.

      These will be for Matt and I have no idea if he has the civie figures so |I just cannot answer that question.

    2. You need to do a matching set of Uboat crew like my Kreigsmarine squad to replay that classic episode.

      "Your name vill also go in ze book- vat is it?"

      "Don't tell them Pike"...

      I thought of that scene often while I was painting these:

  5. Great stuff Clint. Loads of character which your paint-job has captured marvellously. I especially like the glasses. You've really nailed their shine.

    1. Thank you Fran. I will try to read your film review BEFORE I see the film I am both sceptical and hopeful at the same time! As for the figure, well if Postie shoved a pillow up his jumper....... I will leave other to finish that thought.

    1. Thanks C6. I suspect you may be correct. All I know is that I have the same command acumen and proficiency as Cpt Mainwaring
