Dead Man and a Preacher

Not a Warrior Woman on horseback… Maybe tomorrow.

These don’t really belong together… but I happen to finish them both up last night, so…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

The preacher is a Dixon Miniatures English Civil War preacher. The dead man is a Front Rank Figures British Napoleonic casualty.

The preacher, I realized after painting it, would have been perfect to slip onto a stand in one of my DBA-x ECW armies. The extended hand is about shoulder height and he could have been dropped into the second rank and put his hand on the shoulder of someone in the front rank – to give them a little moral support (buy, y’know, not expose themselves directly to enemy fire…

The Casualty is very nice except I’m guessing they used a pre-cast head as there is a tassle on the hat that one would think would be hanging towards the ground, but is “hanging” toward the shoulder as though the model were standing up straight… ah well… Front Frank makes some very nice figures despite that (very minor) gaff.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Warrior Womyn on Horseback! No... really… Then…? I’ve actually had a hankering to get back to some Other Painting Projects


  1. nicely painted!

    Looks like the preacher is giving the dead man last rites or something

  2. Oh the humanity... at least he got last rights eh?

  3. Very cool. Preacher is a nice figure.

  4. Sounds like a Johnny Cash song. I think I might have a similar figure from Warlord Games somewhere--must look around.
