Meet the old couple!


 Hello guys,

I've finally taken time to show you the old couple I've painted a while back.
They are from Hasslefree miniatures and I've mounted them on 20mm slotta bases.

They are a bit smaller than usual figures, which is great. I am pretty sure at least the old man is supposed to be medieval, but as you can see, they are both very universal.

I have to say, while it took me long to get to them, I really enjoyed painting them. The poses are just spot on. I was painting a certain vampire while I was painting those, so I've decided to just go with it and gave them very pale skin colour. Let's just imagine they just saw a monstrosity of a sort.

Not much else to say about them, the old guy is kinda darkish and the old lady is very brightly dressed.


 Below is the usual scale shot and I am still upset that my mat varnish isn't all that mat.

In other news, my other blog is finally getting some shape (I've got marked locations of over 100 bunkers, all in a walking distance!), and I've managed to sell my 15mm FOW german army. I am actually just making some extra barbed wire for the buyer, so I'll take some shots and I'll show the whole army in another post.

Thanks for looking,
Mathyoo

    1. Thanks, it's a bit different from the usual overly tan :P
      It's on zaplana1941.blogspot.com but so far, there is only a welcoming post and a map of the found bunkers, nothing in English yet, however. I'm preparing some more posts, but I'll try to at least write a short description and a map in English.

  2. I like them. As you say the old guy can be used in so many eras he's very versatile.

  3. I have these two figures as well, Mathyoo. You're right, they were originally designed for a fantasy setting but honestly, there's no reason not to use them in a more contemporary setting. That's what I did with mine.

    Oh, and if you want to see that certain "vampire" figure you painted then check out my latest blog post. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!

  4. They're very cartoon-like figures, I think. That makes them very memorable and it's easy to imagine how they might behave in any game.

  6. I like these figures and as there are very few "Oldie" figures around, I guessing a lot of others will have them too. I wouldn't orry too much about the varnish thing.

    1. Yes, the civilians in general are getting more popular. I like them more and more, they really add a character to certain games.
