A weasel with a blunderbuss...

Not a lot to show this time… the last couple of weeks have been spent on paperwork and year-end accounts, doing irritating and dull business stuff, and grabbing the odd moment to sculpt. So I didn’t get the chance to take step-by-step piccies unfortunately.

I decided to sculpt a weasel / stoat (they’re pretty much the same thing in Burrows & Badgers), based on one of the pics from the rulebook.

The pics tend to be a bit cartoony, so I wasn’t planning an exact version; it would need modifying to fit in with the aesthetic of the rest of the miniatures.

There’s an old Ork conversion from the 3rd edition 40k Ork Codex which I’ve always loved; it’s an Ork with a big shoota, being blown backwards by recoil. I’ve always fancied sculpting a mini in a similar pose, and I reckoned the weasel with a blunderbuss was the ideal opportunity… so I posed the armature.

I didn’t take pics after that… I was spending too much time grumbling at the Inland Revenue, and being messed about by our landlords. Still, I did manage to finish the sculpt!
So, here he is:

Another awesome sculpt, I particularly like the cuffs of all things!

Could you make a squirrel with a flick knife or even better a badger with nunchucks?
