'Mercenary' from StephenS: Thirty Years War

This entry came about after one of those moments of hobby distraction that I'm sure many of us can relate to.

This was not what I had originally planned, I don't game this period in any shape or form. It was one of those happy coincidences where I was reading about the role of mercenaries in the Thirty Years war, reflected on the upcoming bonus round and then remembered I had a suitable figure. Poor Boba Fett went back on the shelf as I indulged myself in the cathartic process of painting a figure just for the simple joy of the act.

Whether he is a sword for hire or the captain of a renowned mercenary company I cannot say, but his scarred face, the trident main gauche hidden under his cloak and his eye-patch suggest a man who has seen his share of conflict and is still standing to tell his tales.

This 28 mm miniature was a freebie with a purchase from Warlord Games awhile back, and was a pleasure to bring to life.
