My two werewolves have been keeping bad company this weekend. The lady in the middle is also a Reaper Miniature, a lady vampire that reminds me of the Hammer Studios movies that troubled my pubescent dreams. She joins the ranks of the baddies in my Weird War project.
When she’s not preening in the graveyard, she’s doing important work within the shadowy wing of the SS dominated by SS Gruppenfuhrer Strasser. As anyone knows who’s seen Coppola’s Dracula (1992), it’s pretty much obligatory for powerful vampires to have a retinue of wayward young women. Her duties will include interrogating captured Allied airmen, spying on the Gruppenfuhrer’s human rivals, and nighttime strolls along the Unter der Linden
I’m not entirely happy with her fangs. She rather looks like she has two white straws stuck under her upper lip, but they do look noticeable from a distance. On the plus side, I’m fairly happy with the flesh tones.
It’s rather an odd sort of funeral monument that the sculptor has chosen. It rather looks like a Celtic cross with the top bit removed, but I suppose that gives her a place to park her ample charms.
Team Vampyre ready to put the bite on the Allies.
