Feral George (Onumo, Hippoxus Warrior) Mierce Miniatures This chap was finished a couple of days ago, and he'll wrap up my builds for this year. As was the case in 2017, I've only managed this one bit of figure modelling this year and, also like last year, he's from Mierce miniatures, who are by far my favourite producer of gaming figures. Officially, he's Onumo, a Hippoxux warrior of the Byzantii army, but I like to think of him as George, everyone's favourite camp pink hippo, who's clearly really let himself go since his Rainbow days. Technically, he's 28mm scale, but he's a fairly big chap and stands approximately 3 inches high. The base is a lump of insulation foam, carved to shape, and covered with Vallejo texture paste and some Citadel crackle paint. George alongside 2017's Walvax Warrior, who can be seen here, and 2016's Gurrir, who is lurking here Thanks for looking Andy
This is my last finished build of 2017, and represents the only bit of proper figure modelling I've managed this year (there've been a couple of 1/35 figures as companion pieces to AFV builds, but I don't count them). I picked him up when Mierce had a 30% black friday sale, but wasn't intending to start him until next year. However, due to the excellence of the sculpt and the minimal amount of clean-up required, I couldn't resist getting him together and painted. As the name almost implies, he's essentially an anthropomorphised walrus carrying a big harpoon. He's nominally 28mm scale, but he stands about 2½ inches high, not including his fetching neck spikes. He came with a sculpted coil of rope in his right hand, but I cut it off and replaced it with some waxed chord. The only other addition was to drill out the dimples on his cheeks and add some whiskers made from paint brush bristles. Thanks for looking Andy
I picked up a couple of Mierce Miniatures sculpts last January, when they had a sale on, with the intention of getting them both done pretty quickly. Inevitably that didn't happen and Gurrir here has been sitting half painted for around 6 months. I'm trying to get a few half finished projects done before the end of the year, and he was at the top of the list. He went through a few colour changes before I settled on the rhino hide grey. Not the most inspiring of paint schemes, but the blood adds a bit of life to it. And before you ask, he left the back half of his loin cloth in the wash Thanks for looking Andy
