"Lookit 'im!" thought Gurf, as he trained his lasrifle sights onto one of the more flamboyant members of the Brat gang picking their way past the vaporators. "Fancy ponce wiv 'is white togs."
The Brat was clearly sporting a highly fashionable outfit; a blindingly white, tight-waisted coat with high collar and tails, lined with bright orange, teamed with skin tight trews buckled along the length of the seams. Turquoise lace dripped out from his cuffs, while jewels and precious metals casually dangled and glimmered. The Brat was wearing a tall, stiff hairdo, dyed unnaturally pink, while in his right hand he was casually twirling a jet-black cane.
Gurf steadied his aim and tensed his trigger finger. He never even saw Rhett d'Arquin's power blade as it slashed across the back of his neck.
Introducing the Thin White Duke
The Thin White Duke is one of the more flamboyant members of the Sutter Dukes; right-hand man to the Magpie Dandy. Canes are very much de rigueur in the Spire this season!
The Thin White Duke is a real mix of components; the legs and pistol arm are from a classic RT era Eldar Harlequin; the torso from one of the more modern Harlequins. The head comes from a Space Marine Scout and the cane is simply a length of wire. Originally I had planned to paint him with a turquoise jacket like his fellow Brats, but he was just crying out for something really outrageous...so he got his white suit. I like to think the suit is impregnated with some sort of anti-grime field to keep it pristine, irrespective of where he goes in the underhive!
I eventually settled on pink for the hair, after trying white, black and turquoise. I think I like it, but irrespective, I'm not repainting it again!
Here are my 4 completed Sutter Dukes to date:
