Was bored last night so spent 45 minutes with the bits box and a 1:50 scale Corgi Diecast and ended up with this. . . .
Gone for a Mad Max feel and I like the look of the 'just paint over the previous owner' paint job which makes it look like it has been stolen / won in as poker game.
Apart from the giant goat skull I am really pleased with it.
I will continue to paint it and want to try to duplicate the original Billy Smarts font and colour scheme.
One conclusion I have come to this summer after starting this project, with regards to my lead mountian is;
A) There are miniatures I am NEVER going to get round to painting! Solution = cut deep and sell.
B) There are miniatures I am REALLY excited about painting! Solution = paint them!
C) There are miniatures I HAVE to paint to complete armies for gaming etc. BUT bore the life out of me and I would rather stick pins in my eyes then paint!! Solution = With the new job, actually pay out for some commissions? I had a quick count up and there are about 180 miniatures which sit in this category.
I have Lano but if anyone else can recommend someone that would really help.
