Staying at home today as a result of a freak kitchen accident (Junior Rosbif #1 would say all accidents I suffer are freak ones as that's what I am. Ha, ha, ha....ha........ha. Note to self: Next time I alter my will, give her share to the cat!). For those of you taking notes,while in bare feet a heavy glass oven-proof pie dish fell, edge-on, onto my big toe nail, resulting in blood and severe bruising. The bedclothes hurt my toe last night, so there was no way I was going to be able to put shoes on and walk today. Lots of ice and neurofen, and I should be right soon(-ish!)
Anyway, it's given me time to complete this chap especially so he can sport one of the flags created by MSFoy over at Prometheus in Aspic. I hadn't intended painting this chap as he's from a strange set that seems to have figures by two different sculptors. My other guerrilleros are a lot chunkier, so I didn't think these more finely sculpted ones would really go all that well with them. After considering conversion potential, it was a no brainer; this chap has 2 pistols, but is only using 1, with his other arm flung out behind him. He's leaning back slightly, as if bracing against something; maybe a large, heavy flag billowing in the breeze? Bingo! He's your man!
