Back at the FIGZ convention which took place this years' June in Goor, the Netherlands, the forum members of Bennos' forum and the exhibitors received a very special gift: the Happy Wargamer!
This figure has exclusively been sculpted by the marvellous artist Alex Gussev from Russia, who is a professional miniature sculptor. Alex creates unbelievably great figures, mainly of medieval background. Maybe you just drop on by at http://bennosfiguresforum.com/viewforum.php?f=27 and search for topics posted by Alex in order to enjoy his creations.
Well - for a long time I kept this figure untouched in it's plastic bag as a collectors' item, although some forum members posted their painted variations. I have now decided to give my Happy Wargamer some paint just because of the fun of it - and it was really fun to paint it. This figure is a first class sculpting. Thanks to Alex for this great piece of art!
And here it is:
