'Nautical' by EdwinK - 'Deep Sea Divers'


For this round, 'nautical' as being 'of ships and the sea', I'm submitting these three Victorian divers and their shore-based companion,



They're in 28mm and from Casting Room Miniatures (Foundry) - set VC021. They've currently got a 20% discount until 29 Feb if you like them. http://www.castingroomminiatures.com/



There's very little to add to that. For my own amusement, I've tried to create a resemblance to Tintin and Captain Haddock.

  1. Very nice, they look very familiar and i suspect will appear more than once in this round. Must be Foundry's top selling eclectic set

  2. Great entry, Edwin, and I love the figs, but now I've got the B-52s' 'Rock Lobster' going round and round in my head!

    His air hose broke!
    Lots of trouble,
    Lots of bubbles!"

    All we need now is the Giant Clam...

  3. Marvellous Edwin, I knew that chap reminded me of somebody - Captain Haddock, of course.

    Like Evan, I had "Rock Lobster" going off in my head. Pass the tanning butter...

  6. Grand work, Edwin! ;)
    That has to be a very popular set, but those minis are very well sculpted. I like your TinTin flavoring to the kit as well! ;)

  10. I was expecting some "Sea Devils" from you. I am not sure if I am pleased or disappointed that you surprised me. I think very pleased though as the result is terrific.

  12. Awesome! First "book" I read by myself was "Le Secret de la Licorne" (The Secret of the Unicorn)
