Steampunk Victoria

I (for once) had some time between projects, so I've taken the chance to put some paint on a Steampunk Queen Victoria (from the Wargames Illustrated Giants in Minature limited range) that I picked up at Targe in Kirriemuir last November.

I found this quite a fiddly figure to paint for some reason, despite the prominence of the black dress. Also her face (I always have trouble with painting faces!) has fallen to my ill practised inconsistencies. Should be OK on the table though (most my painting doesn't bear close scrutiny anyway!)

There is something about the armament that makes me think of a Steampunk Ghostbuster. Now there's a game!!! Maybe if they did the backpack & gun as separate pieces?...

Surely Nikola Tesla and Arthur Conan Doyle would also be in the team!


  1. Would Vickie be playing the Venkman role then do you think Sam?

    1. I think Venkman's humour would certainly be more dead pan if she did. But now you have me trying to imagine Bill Murray trying to play Queen Victoria! ha.
