SYW - A figure able to be used for different armies - Reverend Howard Whitehouse

Manufacturer:  Wargames Foundry
Scale:  28mm


Hi,

may I introduce Reverend Howard Whitehouse to you?



I´ve decided this figure to be a Notable for Maurice which can be used in different armies. He got his name from the card deck of the ruleset of Maurice.


This is the game card from Maurice and the effects this card has on the game when it´s used.

And here are some more pictures of the figure. Sorry for the bad quality again. My normal camera is out of energy and would take too long to be reloaded. But I wanted to get this figure posted today.
So I decided to take the photos with my iPhone. I hope you´ll enjoy the pics though.





I built the rock using bark from a tree.
If you are interested in how I did that, just search in my blog for three tutorials I posted in 2012 about building rocks out of barks.

Cheers
Mike

  1. Can you change your paragraph setting from "center justified" to either "left margin justified" or " both margins justified" to make it easier to read your blog?

    1. Hi Christopher,

      Thank you very much. I saw that figure in my stocks and remembered our last game of Maurice there we dropped this card. I think the figure fits very well for this notable,


      Cheers

  5. He's terrific, Mike. You've done a great job painting him (I love that he's preaching a mini sermon on the mount) and that makes me want this mini all the more, especially as I too am an unorthodox Anglican priest who has found a home in the army. :) Plus the fact that he is named for one of the hobby's great eccentrics, Howard Whitehouse, makes it all the better. Thanks for sharing him,
    Michael

    1. Hey Michael,

      there seem to be a lot of parallels I didn't knew before. That's funny.

      Cheer

  6. A great painting job, as usual. I reviewed again your tutorial for the base - and learned this technique. Fantastic!
    Best wishes, Peter

  7. Excellent job on the preacher. He looks full of zeal. The setting with him on the rock and the trees behind is fantastic. Excellent work.
