I've got to admit, I was stumped as to what I could paint up for my Epic Fail entry.
I did have one idea but thought that it would better suit another of the Bonus Rounds, so fingers crossed I get the chance to paint it up!
You may have noticed a distinct lack of comments from my good self recently, I'm afraid my lovely daughter Nieve is to blame. For Christmas we bought her a gel pen set, which after you've drawn a picture, you must heat the gel, which can then be pulled off the plastic paper to make a 3D model.
Sounds cool right?
It's wrong when the said daughter gets bored heating the gel and leaves her artwork on top of her Dads laptop!!!
The unheated gel dripped all over and into my keyboard and now my spacebar doesn't work!
So I've had to download a virtual one, which is quite annoying!
Kids ah! Who'd have 'em!
Anyway on with the figures........
So for my Epic Fail bonus round I chose 2 sets of surgeon figures for my Donnybrook shenanigans set in both Europe and Tangiers.
The larger base is from Redoubt Miniatures and its from their ECW range. I had to get the file out and smooth out the baggy pantoloons and try and make them look a little more from the NYW. I also chopped two heads off, replacing them with floppy headed chaps!
The smaller base is from Warlord Games and once again are from their ECW range.(I wish there were figures our there for this period!)
I've gotta say thanks to the guys at Warlord, I bought the figures at Salute last year but whilst cleaning the figures up in December, I realised that the Surgeon figure was missing, so after a frantic call,the Surgeon arrived in the post, can't believe it took me 8 months to notice!
This is my second post and I'm yet to post in the Challenge proper, although I have been painting bits and bobs and have a few figures finished, I've been concentrating on figures for the bonus rounds. My 1st entry took me to the lofty heights of 49th!! So hopefully the only way is up!
But what better Epic Fail can there be but the death and destruction and utter pointlessness of war!!!
