Hello, everybody! Today we'll take a look at one of the first two minis by Foliescu, an amateur sculptor who recently started to sell his sculpts under the name Just Some Miniatures.
The mini represents an older man in warm clothing and with a bag on his back... And I swear it's a coincidence I'm reviewing him just after Christmas. Though I doubt that his bag is full of presents. It rather contains all his belongings, necessary to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.
Post-apo Guy is a one-piece, 28mm resin miniature of an older male scavenger armed with a pipe in his left hand, a bag in his right one and some rope wrapped around his torso.
The miniature had some mould lines, especially between his legs and under his arms, but these were easily removed with a modelling knife. Additionally, I noticed two small (less than 1mm) air bubbles, which I quickly filled with putty. Apart from these, there were no more casting issues - kudos to Pryzmek from histofigsy, who cast the minis.
The sculpting itself is fantastic. I love the different textures for the clothing - creases on the hood, padded vest, fur-like collar. Because of all these clothes, the character is more suitable for colder post-apocalyptic landscapes, rather than the usual desert wastelands.
His eyelids are very pronounced, maybe even a bit too much. However, they make him look very tired, fit for a vagrant scavenger.
All in all, I think that JSM's Post-apo Guy is a splendid mini, nicely sculpted and full of interesting details. It's a great choice for post-apocalyptic games in colder settings. Alternatively, it might be used as a vagrant in modern games.
Foliescu has a number of other post-apo sculpts, and I really hope they'll get cast too (plus he also mentioned making mutated Bark Beetles).
The mini costs 3,60€ plus postage. If you're interested in buying it, click here.
