Mr. Binsack

Here's an interesting figure for the collection.

When Drew's father died he wanted to memorialise, him so working with Paul Hicks had a sculpt done. As his father was a veteran, the initial thought was to sculpt him in his OD fatigues from the 1970s/80s, but Paul thought that he deserved something more grand.

As Drew's father was a member of the Knights of Columbus, Paul thought that would be much more suiting, so he was, immortalised in his Knight of Columbus outfit, thanks to Hicksy.

Of course I did not find this out until after I had painted him so it's definitely not painted in KoC regalia, but he will certainly work for my Spanish Civil War games and may even see duty as the Mayor of Phillippeville.


  1. What as fitting tribute!
    Paul Hicks has really blossomed as a sculptor hasn't he?
    Best wishes,

  2. This is a wonderful tribute! When I first saw the figure, I thought, for sure, he was destined for your SCW project.

  3. Nice job on a wonderful tribute figure

  4. Nice figure, paint job, story. Three bagger!

  5. Very, very cool character figure with lots of details - wonderfully painted.

  6. Wonderful painting on a very characterful figure! As a wargamer I can't imagine a better way to commemorate a loved one than having his likeness in miniature... especially when sculpted by Mr Hicks himself.

    1. Thank you, it was indeed an inspirational way to commemorate somebody.

  7. A great figure, and I am sure he was also a great man. Also paints up pretty well!
