Actually, looking at this chap, I don’t imagine he’s walked softly in his entire life…
I got this model a number of years ago and, being more young and enthusiastic than actually capable, did a fairly poor job of painting him. He’d been lurking, as so many of my models are, in the bottom of a box until I spotted him, dug him out and gave him a quick repaint. He comes from the Mad Puppet range, which also supplied the base model I used for this Escher juve. I actually have most of the Mad Puppet post-apocalyptic models kicking around somewhere so, as I locate them, expect to see them popping up here (almost certainly following a repaint of their own).
Time to add another Escher to the gang, this time a converted Juve built from a model released a number of years ago by Mad Puppet Miniatures. Some time ago I bought a whole load of models from them but my painting skills at the time were less than impressive and those that I did manage to finish have mostly been gathering dust ever since. This scavenger had been sitting around part-painted for several years and I realised I might never get her finished without doing something to stoke the fires of enthusiasm. My solution was to make a few tweaks and incorporate her into the Escher gang instead. For those unfamiliar with the original model main changes I made were to replace her original weapon, a crude club, with a suitable laspistol and give her a knife strapped to her back.
There’s not a big height difference between her and the other girls, although it’s there, but her ragged clothes and armour, and rounder, younger face, should be more than enough to sell the idea that she’s a Juve.
Getting her finished has also encouraged me to dig out my other, long neglected, Mad Puppet models. They really are gorgeous miniatures so I’d like to get to work on them soon – although not straight away as I’ve got plenty of other things to work on first, starting with more Escher gangers. Next in line I’m going to take a stab at one of the gang’s champions, a sinister looking lady with a chem-thrower. All being well she should be ready to reveal soon.
