I had a pack of Darkest Africa miniatures from Foundry, A League of Exceptional Gentleman – DA012. I also intend to use them for VSF and Old West scenarios too.
This is a picture of the painted model from the Foundry website.
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.
Here is the plain metal model, alongside an Old West model.
After basing the model on a two pence piece, I gave it a white undercoat.
