EM4 Miniatures Suit with Gun – John Major

Originally part of Grenadier Miniatures ‘Future Warriors’ range from the early 90s this miniature caught my eye recently as a ‘bank robber’. So on a whim, and with no reason or plan to use it in any of my games, I bought it.

Intending to paint it up quickly as a palette cleanser after lots of fantasy painting I was amazed when it arrived at its resemblance to a certain UK prime minister from 1990-1997.

The details in the eBay photograph didn’t really give any clues that the sculptor (Mark Copplestone?) captured Mr. Major so perfectly in miniature form!

    Damn, that’s a good caricature, especially given the scale. I thought “hey, that looks a lot like…” before i read your text. The bland grey suit works perfectly for someone so bereft of charisma as well!

      He is a very good caricature, full marks to the sculptor. I had to put him in grey of course (with a Tory blue tie) – I was almost tempted to paint his skin grey like his ‘Spitting Image’ puppet but decided that was probably OTT…
