Another long-owned-but-never-painted figure, this one was either a birthday or Christmas present and has sat untouched for a long time.
I had intended for him to be an Indiana Jones-esque academic, so obviously he needed a hat. The selection on the Perry Civil War soldier sprue proved to be close enough in scale – I snipped one off and crammed it on the scalped head.
I experimented with a more wash-based approach on this fellow’s clothes, which I don’t think have been captured particularly well by my phone’s camera. Perhaps the trousers need another layer of highlights. In person, however, I’m satisfied that they look sufficiently ‘posh professor’ for my purposes, if perhaps a tad bright. It was another use for the sepia wash, of which I am becoming particularly fond.
