|Alan Breck Stuart and his Hunters Grim, version 2.0.|
In a continuation of working on Trollbloods (my son's lastest interest) I bought the Hunter's Grim pack from Privateer Press. Set it aside for a while and lost the head and a coat-tail from the main figure, Grim Angus. What to do...
|Hunters Grim from Privateer Press, for comparison.|
|Started with a ball of putty for a noggin.|
I haven't sculpted since my high school studio classes and this was a lot small than those statues. I was worried it would turn out too chunky looking, but am ok with how it turned out for a first attempt.
|Added on rough facial features.|
|Facial details and great kilt.|
|Adding on the brim of the cocked hat.|
|Sculpting the crow of the hat.|
|The clay pipe stem (upper left) is a piece of styrene and the bowl was sculpted|
I decided, since Grim Angus lost his head somewhere along the way, to make him one of my favorite characters from Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped: Alan Breck Stuart. Alan Breck was a Jacobite officer in Louis' Army if you recall from the novel. His minions are in a mixture of highland garb (my poor imitation of the Royal Stuart tartan and a well-worn bonnet [vice bowler on the out-of-the-blister]) and the uniform of The Royal Ecossais Regiment.
