More Yokels, More Venice!

This week, I finished off a few more yokels for the yokel horde. The man on the far right is called "agitator", and I think the other two are "militia". It's not often that models remind me of real people, but from left to right, they look rather like Yul Brynner, Toby from The West Wing, and the bloke from The Big Lebowski.

Moving forward a few years in miniature sculpting, I painted the Foreign Spy model from the old lead Carnivale miniatures. I did a small conversion, cutting and turning her head so that she was looking the same direction as her gun was pointing. I can see why the original model looks in a different direction (for added shiftiness), but I prefer the current pose. I had to resculpt some of her hair, which wasn't easy, but I'm glad I did it.

And here's the entire crew, ready to do battle. I think they've come out well and I really like the colour scheme. Hmm, now I look closer, I really want to touch up that man's britches, but isn't that always the way?

Fantastic additions! They have lots of character!

Cheers! They're completely different in terms of style and accuracy, but I really like the Venetians and the old peasants. They've got that sense of individual character and charm that I really like in models.
