"What do the simple folk do..." - Well it's almost Spring in St. Maurice. Time for........shooting some scallliwag in the face (or any other body part) over a matter of honor. In this case the Count d' Aramis seeks satisfaction from the youngest son of the Planchet family (banking folk don't-ya'-know) over a rude remark regarding the knotting of his cravat. Most may already recognize most of these figures as the work of Blue Moon Manufacturing with a sprinkling of Stadden and Suren thrown in. I'm a big fan of Blue Moon to fill out small vignettes within the St. Maurice realm. The figures (as may be seen in photo number 2) are not as tall and certainly more "chunky" than the Staddens or Surens, but as representatives of the civilians of the realm, their character more than makes up for the difference.

The figures here are (from left to right) Stadden, Blue Moon, and Suren.

Nicely painted civilians!

I find that civians tend to be stouter than military men. By the way I love the vicar, he would be the perfect figure for my Bishop of Bristol. Thanks for the inspiration...

Thanks guys. Capt. Bill, the cleric is a Suren miniature and available through Traditions of London. - Mike

Surely you won't leave us hanging about the results of the duel?

Let's just say that Mme Planchet will have to console herself in the knowledge that she indeed has other sons, hopefully with more skill at knowing when to keep the mouth shut.

Thanks for the info on the cleric. I checked Blue Moon and could not find him. I was going to ask for further help when I saw your comment. Thanks again...
