"There was a young lady of Riga,
Who rode with a smile on a tiger.
They returned from the ride
With the lady inside
And the smile on the face of the tiger."
[Limerick, traditional (?)]
So, another model has rolled off the production line. In this case, it's a Hasslefree model called "Barbarian Libby". She's destined to be used as one of the heroes for my slowly-forming Barbarian army for Hordes of the Things. It's not difficult to find barbarian heroes from Hasslefree; sometimes it seems as if half of their catalogue fall into this category!
here (January 2014), here (November 2013) and here (also November 2013).
The tiger comes with its own round scenic base, so there wasn't much need for landscaping in order to produce a suitably heroic pose. All I had to do was cut a circular hole in the square HotT base, glue in the model and then fill the gap. I think that worked well; it's not possible to see the join.
Will they return from the ride with the lady inside the tiger? I doubt it! I think that this barbarian queen has her beast totally under control.
