Malto Cortese – Tally Ho!

Having given him a white undercoat, I started painting the model.

Malto Cortese – Tally Ho!

Malto Cortese is a really nice sculptured model and quite different to the other miniatures in the A League of Exceptional Gentleman – DA012 range.

I think this will be a really useful model for Victorian Science Fiction scenarios, he looks like a Steam Tank or Ether Flyer Captain rather than a Darkest Africa explorer. His expression of determination really comes out in the model and he looks like an individual who you wouldn’t want to cross.

Simon has this model and here is his painted version.

After basing the model on a two pence piece, I gave the model a white undercoat.

I don’t know if I will give him a blue uniform, I might go for more of a desert khaki look instead.

Capitain Craupaud

This is another of my Darkest Africa miniatures from the A League of Exceptional Gentleman – DA012 range.


He is certainly an elegant chap, holding his pistol as though wary of what might happen just around the corner.

I am intending to use these models in Old West scenarios as well as Tally Ho! adventures set in Africa and Asia. I also think they are ideal Victorian Science Fiction miniatures.

In the first instance I based the model on a two pence piece. I then gave the model a white undercoat.

This is a nice model, not sure if I will follow the paint scheme from the Foundry website.

I also, as I said with Teddy Roosevelt, intend to use the model for VSF and Old West scenarios too.

Egyptian Sarcophagus

Having given the resin Egyptian Sarcophagus from Grendel a basecoat of Citadel Base: Zandri Dust, I gave the model a wash of Citadel Shade: Agrax Earthshade. This has really bought out the detail, however there are areas where there was a little too much shade and it has pooled.

This needed a few extra washes to ensure full coverage.
