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.

And thanks also for opening my eyes to Mierce Miniatures!

Glad you've found them. The quality of their figures really is first class. Local too (to you and me) as they're based in Nottinghamshire.

Well I'll be! Yes, very local to me - about 6 miles actually.

PS Ever done "historical" figures? Or SW?

Thanks iwik,

 

Never done any historical figures, but I'd like to do some at some point. No small scale SW either, only the 1/12 Bandai stuff.
