As some might remember, Mayor Boismann bought the plot in the first Stillburg scenario. I have now finished painting the guy who will replace him. Let me introduce you to Albert Adlercreutz, chief constabulary officer of Stillburg!

Albertus Adlercreutz – Human Officer
(60 pts)
Quality 3+, Combat 3. Leader.
Awaiting an official election, the town’s constabulary officer has been charged with the job as interim mayor. Albert Adlercreutz is quite the opposite of the old mayor. Righteous and just, with a genuine will to help those in need, he has offered his assistance to the surving heroes. No doubt will his corageous and inspiring ways prove an asset to the group!

The miniature is a fine piece of Aly Morrison work, from the Marauder MM60 line of human fighters. I really must say these models were done when Morrison (in my opinion) was at his best. Top notch, and I really hope he’ll survive for a while in the campaign!

I’m very pleased with how the mini turned out, with only the back irking me. I got this (as almost all my other lead) from eBay, and unfortunately the seller never told me the mini had a huge chunk of super glue on his back (probably from a shield)! I’ve managed to clean off most of it, but it did affect the surface. I’ve gone over the worst parts with black and more metals after this picture was taken, to give the lower back part a better impression of scales. First time I’m doing the signature 80s striped pants, by the way. Was a bit of a pain, but turned out nice.

Oddly enough, I must have subconsciously sucked in how the mini was painted in White Dwarf #113. I didn’t think of it at all when painting, but when comparing now there are some pretty obvious similarities!

Coming up next, more human peasant fighter types. Also – an old friend might soon make a re-appearance!
