Tiny Furniture's "Guillotine"


Recommended Posts

(Rough draft for a review on RPG.net. More Tiny Furniture Reviews : https://www.rpg.net/reviews/search-review.phtml?productCompany=tiny+furniture&orderby=category&showinfo=publisher


Tiny Furniture's "Guillotine" is a multi-piece set, including guillotine, basked, and unfortunate man's head. The miniature may be purchased by itself, or as part of Tiny Furniture's "The Execution Day" set, which includes "1) Gallows and Scaffold, 2) Executioner axe and chopping block, 3) Guillotine, 4) Pillory, 5) Torturer". Both the "Guillotine" and "The Execution Day" miniatures may be purchased unpainted or painted.


Like Tiny Furniture's other miniatures, their guillotine miniature has great details, even having a rope and tie down the side, pulley atop the blade, and various metal fasteners. The platform, where the victim would be lain down, is a single piece, rather than hollow, making it less likely to break apart. Assembly is pretty easy. You can even use putty (with superglue) to put the miniature together, if you wish to take it apart after play for safer storage.


The model is easy to paint and pretty much has no mold lines. Some pieces need to be detached from sprues. The guillotine itself is painted as wood, rope, and metal. Except for the metal, I primed in brown primer, followed by brown Army Painter Strong Tone, and a light dry brush mainly on the edges of the miniature. For the platform, I painted the "hollow" areas with a dark black-brown. For the metal blade and other metal areas, I primed or painted in metallic primer, followed by dark Secret Weapon Armor wash. The rope and basket were primed in brown primer, then dry-brushed in ochre Army Painter Skeleton Bone. Paint the head as you would a zombie. While I didn't do it, you can add blood to the blade and stocks. Search on "miniature painting blood tutorial" for tutorials on painting blood.
