Last night a box arrived at my door: a small box with big contents. My vanity miniatures from Minuteman Miniatures are here!
|28mm Mounted French Colonel, Viking, Roman, WWII American; 18mm Mounted French Colonel|
I will probably try a few different painting techniques on the faces to see which provides the better likeness, but I am impressed with how much these figures really do look like me. I can always use these sculpts to fantasize about how I would look without my "gamer's physique!"

The scaffolding certainly kept the figures intact during shipment. It is a pain to cut away, but with some sprue cutters and a little patience, I was able to clean up these 18mm figures without breaking anything. I remember that Mike and GP were wary about printing figures so small, but I am happy to report that these are robust enough for gaming!

I'll have these painted up fairly soon. I know I do not usually post about UN painted figures, but I am super excited about these!
