The Bodyguard(s)

And IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII will always love youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...

Ahem, sorry about that...

I've finally painted the four lovely Adalen Miniatures that I somehow managed to win last month.

I thought long and hard on how to incorporate tricorne-wearing Swedes into my little version of the VBCW, and decided to cast them as Nordic mercenaries in the employ of the Governor of Herefordshire, William deBraose.

Acting as his ceremonial bodyguards, they are clad in the uniform of his personal retinue (pictured below in a crappy old photo before I re-did the bases).

The Weasel and the Fox

No, not the latest Disney cartoon, but two little minis that I procured from Giles. One of his Warhammer gaming buddies (and VBCW Big Game-er) was giving some figures away after bagging a huge haul of stuff from Reaper Miniatures' Bones Kickstarter.

I asked for some animals (Reaper familiars) just to add a little colour to my scenery, and got this pair in return.

The weasel will now take pride off place with my Muttonchop Weasley Wretches (pictured below, before I re-did the bases). Can you spot his brother?
