My second contribution is a shorter, nastier piece of work. And that pretty much sums up a ratling cook - a greasy low-life responsible for acquiring supplies needed to feed his crew. I suspect those supplies may not always be of the highest quality!
I elected to give Short Jern Silvo traditional chef whites and stripy trousers, which kept the paint job pretty simple. Like many Rogue Trader sculpts, the figure is all about the character, rather than the execution of the sculpt. Which leaves some rather tricky areas to navigate - just what is the thing hanging from his cravat? What about the blobby stuff on the spoon? I rendered them as a sort of brooch / tie-pin and...blobby stuff on the spoon!
My approach to selecting my first mini-set from the Adventurers range is to create an Inquisitor with his personal retinue. Short Jern Silvo is therefore the first recruit to Inquisitor Clousseau's team. I'm looking forward to revealing which of the other Adventurers will make the cut!
|Emerging from a remote hick bar, it seems that some of the locals want a word. "What did you say to them this time Silvo?"|
