Red Dwarves

Here’s another example of the boy Slug’s painting which is not only a neat paintjob but also a record for the fastest painting of a Salute purchase. As many Salute devotees know it’s easy to buy some metal and still have it safely stored when the next one rolls around. These Russian dwarves made by Akula are part of the World War one fantasy genre which is rapidly gaining interest. Their quality is quite marvelous both in sculpt and cast, these were created by Bob Olley a true miniature maestro and cast by Grffin and I challenge you to find a cast line let alone any flash.

Slug really enjoyed painting these, namely because they were so easy to paint. Most have great coats and the heads come seperately. A quick google brought up a decent uniform reference, even though you could quite legitimately get away with pink, purple and gold lamé. He’d not painted a single dwarf before so enjoyed how much less there is to work on. You can see these in their bare flesh, and perhaps even buy some yourself, here.
