The 28mm King Under the Car Park

I've painted this as a gift for someone who's rather into the history of Richard III (I won't name them in case they read this blog … no surprise-ruining from me today).

It's a lovely model, made by Perry Miniatures and available in their Wars of the Roses range.

Rather than trying anything too fancy, I just had a crack at finishing the model like a bronze statue (gold with a heavy sepia wash), and mounted it on an 8cm round display base, which fits rather nicely. I'm pleased with how old Ricky has come out, so let's hope it goes down well with the (non-miniatures gamer) recipient. Click on the photos to see a bigger version.
