Samual Vimes of the Night Watch

Terry Pretchett's Discworld has many odd and wonderful characters in it.
Samuel Vimes is one of my favourites, I know that in art he has a little bit of a Clint Eastwood look to him, but in all the years I read discworld novels growing up I imagined him played in my imaginary cast by the now late and great Pete Postlethwaite.

This is another miniature that I painted for my friend Craig but this time as a sort of combined birthday present.
Our friend Jessica bought the miniature for Craig's birthday but didn't think she could do it justice and asked me to paint it for him.

I got to try out the Vallejo Model Colour starter set for the first time and they were really nice to work with. I did still use a touch of Devlan Mud too, but otherwise, very pleased with the Vallejo paints.

    1. Thanks... It was one of those miniatures that sort of paints itself and takes you along for the ride.

      The Micro Art Studio Discworld figures are beautiful, I've wanted them ever since first seeing them a while back. After painting one, I want them even more.
