This is the Nosferatu miniature from Foundry. A fine mini with loads of character and brooding menace. To be honest he looks quite a lot like most of the other Nosferatu miniatures kicking around from both small and large Companies.
All of them of course have F. W. Murnau’s silent masterpiece as their inspiration. Browsing around the web one quickly finds great takes on the Nosferatu vampire, such as Dr. Viking’s psychedelic treatment or a recent vampire posted on the great Oldhammer Spain blog.
I could not resist sticking closely to the source and went the conservative way. My Foundry vampire is thus almost done in black and white, except that the skin tone has slight hues of yellow and brown. I don’t know if it shows on the photos, but they’re there.
I’ll be back soon with ghouls. Lots of ghouls!
Brilliant. The lighting is a very clever touch too. Have you seen the film ‘Shadow of the Vampire’? Well worth a look if you haven’t.
Thanks! I must admit that I’m rather pleased with how the Nosferatu turned out despite the limited palette. I have indeed seen the movie. It’s great – in my opinion one of the best vampire films in ages.
