#6MMRPC - The Hedge-Witch

Earlier in the year I went to the Triples wargames show in Sheffield I found the great collection of fantasy figures that Rapier Miniatures sell (it took me ages to find the name of the company, as I couldn't recall their signage from the day) - they have a wonderful selection of witches of various types. I decided to pick up this classic Snow White/Evil Queen-incognito witch with a bushel of apples! I figured that she'd work well in fantasy RPG settings or even in my dark age games as the village crone...

Thoughts, comments, suggestions? All are welcome!

    1. I did think that! In fact, when I went to the show I was on the lookout for cheap/interesting magic-users - the only thing I lack is an abundance of suitable apprentices!

  3. Delicious poisoned apple for the missus? Cheap at twice the price!
    Very cool fig. I like how the fruit colours jump out against the otherwise flat colours. The ground colouring is a bit too close to the robe/boot I think....maybe a quality of the photo lighting though?
    The green scrub looks good as well.

    1. Yeah, the fruit is the real focal point! I used red and green ink as a glaze on them, which is why they've turned out so vivid. I'm very happy about them - I see what you mean about her feet blending into the base, it's not as bad in real life :) Thanks for the kind comments and feedback!

    1. Their website is pretty antiquated, I would assume that the shipping to deliver abroad may be pricey, but the cheap figure might make up for it! They have a lovely random range of fantasy stuff! I'm looking forward to painting the foxes and cats from Rapier too!
