Welcome to "Adventures in Lead", a blog dedicated to the hobby of miniature wargaming. The figures and terrain on this site are mainly for a campaign set in exotic "Indostan", a distant land bearing remarkable similarities to 18th century India during the Seven Years War. Bits and pieces from other projects may pop up here as well from time to time, including colonials, gladiators, pirates, dinosaur-hunting and even some RPG'ing.
The actual campaign journal and after action reports for the Indostan campaign can be found on their own blog - "Indostan: The Jewel in the Crown", the link to which is found by clicking the small image below-left.

The Werewolf and the Highwayman.

Continuing on my 18th century horror stint, I present this pair.
I have had the Reaper Werewolf kicking around on the painting queue since last year. It is actually a Reaper Bones miniature, the first I have painted and I must say, I had no problems at all with it. Looking on the net I have seen it painted in brown, grey and even white, but I went for a more sinister, darker tone. It towers over a 28mm miniature and certainly will make an imposing monstrous villain.
The figure is an Outpost Wargame "Highwayman in French Greatcoat". I really like this miniaturre and he could just as easily serve as a hero or villain. He has a certain "Brotherhood of the Wolf" look, what with the greatcoat and all. Outpost are a decent match for Front Rank miniatures, if not a little chunky. I do hope he has silver bullets in those pistols though.

I love them both and the Brotherhood of the Wolf was such a great movie.

They do indeed look wonderful! Mr Awdry is spot on about the Brotherhood of the Wolf as well.

The figures are very nicely done but what caught my eye was the setting with the buildings in the back ground. Then I checked out your previous post on your scratch built buildings, superb!
