Crooked Dice Henchmen

Probably my final two miniatures of 2017 as the Christmas holidays are now upon us and its time for family and not for hobby (well maybe a little bit lol). I didn't really plan to finish this duo from Crooked Dice I started work on Jaws as the pallette was rather similar to Minerva whom I finished last week. Nick Nack was finished quite quickly mostly painted in black then picking out the a few bits of his shirt hear and there and his after squinting a lot at him his tiny derringer.

Jaws is my favourite Bond Henchmen and my third version I have done of him now. This has to be my favourite version it captures him perfectly. I mounted him on a larger 40mm base as I plan to re-skin a Marauding Monster archetype as the infamous character. Switching around some effects and printing a new card using the card generator on The 7TV Studios Casting Agency 




 Nick Nack is just one of the memorable henchmen. This again capture him perfectly. I am not sure which archetype to base his character on I have got to put my thinking cap on for this one.



 Just to show the size of the duo next to what I would call an average 28mm figure.
