Princess Brenda


My last painted figure of 2020 is Princess Brenda and is the 705th 28mm foot figure this year, lockdown has certainly be useful for painting figures.

Princess Elizabeth c.1945 was the freebie given away at Partizan 2012 and it's been shamefully sat in my backlog ever since. The sculptor is Matt Bickley (thanks to Phil for the correction).


For those interested in the colours used, her hat and battledress tunic and hat are from a base of VMC English Uniform, the skirt, shirt and tie are from VMC Khaki. The stockings are from VMC Beige Brown and the gloves, bag and shoes from VMC Saddle Brown.


After a wash of AP Strong tone the base colours are re-applied and a couple of highlights added to each. The badge and buttons were picked out in VMC Bronze.


Princess Brenda has been used to summon a trip across the Chambers of Challenge XI and some food based output will happen over the next few days


Here's wishing you all a Happy New Year and may 2021 be an improvement on 2020.

Paul

  4. Nicely rendered HRH Paul, I think she was sculpted by Matt Bickley following on from Edward VIII and That Woman.

  8. Ah going back home then! Best of luck. Since I probably won't see you again before then, let me just say it was nice meeting you and gaming with you. And I still am grateful for you explaining some mistakes I was making in the way I was playing TtS rules.

    1. Nice to meet you too, the move back to the UK is (hopefully) temporary and I do plan to be back here in 2022, hopefully we'll have the option to game again.
