|To Be or . . . wait, is that a maggot on my lunch?|
After a few days of searching eBay, I came across this Shakespeare keychain, which appeared to be roughly the correct size and selling at a price far, far less than any Mordheim mini you'll find on eBay.
|The bard himself.|
|Reminds me of Nearly Headless Nick.|
Now, to get the arms correct, I needed to do a bit more chopping than I'd hoped. And, for his right hand, I had to use a left hand, so needed to switch the thumb to the other side. See the tiny little hooked thumb below, under the Shakespeare head?
|That thumb was very tiny. Luckily, I didn't sneeze!|
|To be or not to be? That would be the question . . . if I weren't so busy planning to spread plague and pestilance across the ravaged lands of Mordheim.|
|Me thinks that Billy was a handsome man.|
|I wonder what Shakespeare would have thought of Papa Nurgle. Seems like he'd fit right in with Macbeth's witches or Puck from a Midsummers Night.|
And one last shot for scale purposes . . . you can see he's on the tall side, but I think he'll fit in well with the warband:
Next up, some green stuffing to clean up cracks and fill in the back of his head, then onto priming and painting. Wish me luck!
