Here’s a chunk of what I found from the Loyalist side of the equation:
Looking at them now, the proportions on these IG seem so clumsy and odd. I’m not exactly sure why or how. They just are. And the poses also feel so utterly stilted and unnatural to me; it’s all quite comical. Of course, if I am to be completely candid, I must accept my share of the blame for this sorry state of affairs. I believe that several pieces for the fellow on the left were originally intended for a missile launcher or somesuch. His grip on that would-be-sniper-rifle seems rather arthritic; however, I was (and am, I suppose) quite proud of the scope.
Excepting, of course, that these guys were, in fact, distractions from a dwarf or two that I should have been painting otherwise (see here). So it goes.
While I’m likely to leave most of the above alone for the time being (at least in part from an overwhelming sense of nostalgia), I think this last fellow might also make his way to the tub so that I can scrub him clean and finally give him the paint he deserves. What a figure! What a horrific paintjob. He deserves a brighter future.
