'BFG' from LeeH: Cedric Hyde

The torture that is the Bonus rounds continues, and again I had a real struggle to find something suitable for this category. The only model I initially found in my lead mountain was a lovely sculpt from Colonel Bills Belt Fed Girls range but as it was a bit NSFW I decided to try and find something a little more PC! Then by sheer chance I came across this figure by Westwind while browsing through one of my favourite model shops in Rochester. So I present Cedric Hyde from Westwind's Empire of the Dead range.

Needless to say the link to the theme is his rather oversized revolver (which reminded me somewhat of the gun wielded by Hellboy). I imagine that targets hit by this impressive hand cannon don't just get large holes in them, they probably explode. If that doesn't count as a BFG I don't know what does.

This was harder to paint than its simple lines would suggest. The large smooth surfaces of this figures bulging physique meant that any detail needed to be added by the painter. In other words this needed a bit more skill than I normally exhibit on a 28mm figure! I've given it my best shot and hope you like it.


  1. He really is full of character, I like the grimy look a lot.

  2. Looks like someone just cast aspersions on his stamp collection... great work, Lee!

  3. Well done - love the "compensator" hand gun...

  4. Great looking BFG! The wargames shop in Rochester is also pretty good too!

  5. I think he is very appropriate for the theme, Lee. He has a big gun, but that right fist is attached to a proper"gun"" as well!
    I like the colors and shading on him, he'd be appropriate for many pulp gaming sessions too!
