Where's the van helsing figure from?

As it's said in the Malamute's Gallery Page (http://www.displacedminiatures.com/Malamute/image/1075/8794/), it's a conversion from this Foundry Old West figure:


Picture from here: http://www.ifelix.co.uk/jimbo_old_west_07.html

It's Earl Jones from OW045 - Posse: The Reverend John Wesley Carrington And Earl Jones



But of course the Prince of Darkness himself is the best one to give you the specifics!

 ;)

And YES, since we already know there's a mounted Van Helsing version somewhere in Malamute's dungeon basement, we're anxiously waiting for the vampire coach's chase scene!  :D

Ah ha! you’d be wrong! There is no mounted Van Helsing. Being the purist when I converted these Vampire hunters i followed the book...
Van Helsing made his way to Castle Dracula with Mina in a carriage. Therefore the only mounted figures are Harker, Morris, Seward and Holmwood. Photos will follow I promise of the mount d/dismounted versions. :)

Ah brilliant conversion

Thank you. He is shamelessly copied from the Anthony Hopkins interpretation.
I very much enjoy that film. It’s not perfect by a long shot and  I don’t know why Coppola changed the end given how faithful the rest of the film was to the book.

I recognised it as Antony Hopkins, I watched the film again today, it's actually quite a good film

It is very good, but I always though the ending was not great. I understand why he did it with the introduction of the lost love and redemption, but wish he hadn't. lol

Malamute
, I know that you know that I knew that, being you a purist, there's no hope of a Van Helsing mounted figure, and you know that I've only used that possibility and answered the fellow's question about your great Van Helsing's conversion in order to entice you to give us MORE of your awesome DRACULA stuff!!!  ;)

And it seems that it pretty much worked!  lol

So we're looking forward to see the mounted vampire hunter figures and coach chase scene!  :D

And I've already told you about that painting in the chapel ceiling of the ending scene that clearly points to an undeniable Vampire/MARS connection!  ;D

Didn't see it first time around, so I appreciate it rising to stalk LAF once again.  Brilliant work!
