A few week ago someone on the Pendraken forum was asking if there was a figure that would do for a Spanish cardinal they wanted to use on a command stand. I’d never thought of that before but of course it sounded like a great idea for a Thirty Years War Spanish army I may have running around in a campaign shortly. Unfortunately there isn’t one available.
So I thought I’d have a go at making one myself.
This is 10mm, and how Thomaston (or anyone else for that matter) works in 6mm I’ll never know! My hands were were suddenly way too big and my eyes weirdly unfocused.
However I persevered and though he is far from perfect he’ll do for me (they’re going to get thrashed anyway! – probably.)
He looks weird like this – I barely recognised him from what I thought I’d sculpted under the magnifying glass!
He looks a bit more like it now(Pendraken gunners for size comparison)
I’m hoping he’ll look even more the part once based with a few military types around him.
