The Unknown Rifleman

The Unknown Rifleman

Postby dadlamassu » 20 Jun 2010

I picked this chap up at Wappinshaw yesterday in a box of figures at the bring and buy. I have no idea which war he is from or who makes him. But he looks like a sniper!

Kinda reminds me of the sharpshooter in Wade's gang in 3:10 to Yuma.

I painted him in a sort of British Army uniform and then added the coloured scarf (that Antie Mavis knitted for him) to give a bit of colour. He now sits with my 1920's Backof Beyond stuff.

A very nice miniature to paint.
