The Butler


The village wouldn’t be the Village without the Butler, memorably portrayed by Angelo Muscat but with no suitable figure out there it was going to have to be a conversion job.

Amongst my mountain of lead waiting to be painted was a figure from Artizan’s “Thrilling Tales” range,  He had various factors in his favour, but others that needed a tweak.

It was a major operation , The figure was too tall so out came the hack saw for leg reduction surgery, he needed a shave to get rid of the facial hair, and on top of the head, walking stick was also removed.

Finally a double chin was built up with miliput and tails added to his jacket at the rear, leg joins were filled.
