Living Armour for The Silver Bayonet
Regular readers of the blog will be well aware that the new game from Osprey Games - The Silver Bayonet written by Joseph McCullough has been a major inspiration to me, allowing me to re-visit my collection of painted and un-painted Flintloque miniatures and search through my 'bits box' for suitable 'stand-in' minis to use in the game.
This plastic toy figure was bought in Bangkok over ten years ago and had been relegated to the bottom of my 'bits-box' destined to never see the light of day again. That is until I started searching for a suitable miniature to use as Living Armour.
The plastic kit is similar to the small clip-together models which can sometimes be found in Kinder Eggs. In this case a five piece kit moulded in silver.
I mounted the model onto a pre-decimalisation penny and built up the base with Milliput before painting, washing and varnishing the figure. The final image shows the Living Armour alongside a Flintloque RifleOrc. The Living Armour model is 50mm tall (head to toe).
