There is no solitude greater than that of the samurai unless it be that of a tiger in the jungle... perhaps...

Existing where there is nothing is the meaning of the phrase: Form is emptiness.

So, A while back I decided I wanted to do this zombie hunter figure from Hasslefree. Sometime after I bought it I decided that there should be a miniature of Ghost Dog and that I should use that figure as the basis for the conversion. If I was going to do that, why not a miniature of Jef Costello from Le Samouraï too? I was somewhat surprised that I was able to track down a suitable candidate. The noir hero from Rattrap Productions actually has glasses, which the character didn't wear, but his hat and downward angled head hide them enough that its okay.

I did this nerdy little side project in about 4 sittings while other things were drying and curing.

The last batch of Reiksguard is currently underway, as is another modern Hasslefree figure I'm painting for Daywalker for the 2nd painting swap over at Deano's.

In other news, I got my metallics order in so I am not longer out of TinBits, hoorah! This means I can now get started on that griffon lord . . . um. . . paint some stuff with metallics.
