Yet another impulse purchase gets my attention - Boudicca or should that be Boobicca !!!!

You know the feeling you catch something shiny out of the corner of your eye next minute you are looking at the racks of hanging lead. The mind is now starting to tell you that although you have no need for what you are looking at, it is too nice not to purchase just to paint up!

This happens to me all the time, I like to have odd figures laying around just to paint for the pleasure of painting them. Many of them are destined to sit in a display case as I don't game with them or they are not the scale for the period and a whole host of reasons. However they are on occasion just too distracting not to jump onto the paint table ahead of time.

I found this image on Google to use as inspiration copyright remains with the original author
This time it was one of the Belt Fed Miniatures that I purchased from Stuart at Colonel Bills while having a few minutes at the Newark show. Now it has to be said the range is a little on the risque side but this version of the Warrior Queen seemed very fitting and well sculpted.




Overall I am very happy with the way this turned out destined for a spot in my display cabinet

    2. An excellent Range Ray, but not all are to my taste. I am likely to add a couple more to the collection though.

  12. An interesting interpretation of the Warrior Queen, excellently executed as usual.

    But she lives in Norfolk, they get more sunshine than anywhere else in Britain; gingers should stay out of the sun!
