'L'amour' from ScottS - 'Dorian and Mina'

Ok, this one requires a bit of a mental stretch....

On the left is Mr D Gray and on the right we have Miss Mina Murray.

Of course it's Dorian Gray (of Oscar Wilde fame) and Mina Harker (Dracula, Van helsing etc,) both sometime members of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen that fans of great comic books or average films might recognise.

Dorian isn't in the original League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but he was added, and ably portrayed by Stuart Townsend, in the 2003 film, hence why he's here.  Towards the end of the film, both face each other in a fight to the death (hey, we've all had rough relationships from time to time,) but they were involved together at some point, so that qualifies as l'amour to me...

Dorian is from West Wind's 28mm Empire of the Dead range, but I can't for the life of me remember who made Mina, but I do remember that they also had a Victorian/Fictional range.  Both were fun to paint up, although, the Dorian figure was a much crisper sculpt to paint.  

So there they are, hopefully some other members of the League will show up before the end of the challenge.  Onto something naval in the meantime...



  1. Ahhh... the delectable Mina! Cracking brushwork Scott.

  2. Very nice duo these two! West End games miniatures?

  3. This reminds me of the characters for the television show, Penny Dreadful, with the lovely Eva Green and Timothy Dalton.
    Well done!

  4. Very nice! Both look grand and I'd love to own both minis, but it's a wonder that Mina can breathe much less fight as her corset seems to be rather tight! ;)
