28mm Painted Hasslefree Miniatures William Figure: Not Spike Figure?

Got this at christmas from Hasslefree Miniatures http://hasslefreeminiatures.co.uk/index.php and just recently painted it, black is a hard colour to paint or represent on a figure because its boring and you can overdo the drybrushing and make it very grey or underdo it and get no definition at all.The figure is called William and was quite expensive but you have to support companies if you can to make sure they're still around when you want more figures, to me he looks like a figure from a well known TV series set in Sunnydale in the late 90s.

Pictures are the usual hit and miss affair.LOL

  1. That's really an excellent sheen on the coat. Good job!

    I agree on supporting the smaller firms. The difficulties they have are more visible of late. John Lambshead has a good overview:

  6. I think the coat looks great and you achieved the result of a shiny leather coat.

  10. The fellow in the middle looks eerily like the urban entrepreneur who spends most of his day on various street corners of my neighborhood, distributing his illicit wares.
