Martin does like to surprise us with little treats - I love the Plague Physicians that popped up over the weekend!

A Renaissance form of hip flask?

A holy scroll to ward off evil spirits?

[am unsure whether dodgy brandy in the hip flask counts as an "evil spirit"...]

Oh my golly gosh, new stuff!  :)

Middle chap is holding either a bag of leeches, or some pot pourri in the air. Chap on the right is auditioning to be lead guitar in a new niche subgenre of heavy metal band.

Interesting!

The cane was used to prod the bodies of infected patients. I'll go with a bottle of leeches or a scented bottle of herbs.

Chapeau, colonel.


Actually I can't look at him now without hearing the opening guitar of Ziggy Stardust

Will go really nicely as a vignette with the Dead Cart from the WoTR collection too.  :D

The figure in the centre is obviously taking a selfie.

Ah - of course!

And the funny rods they're carrying must be very primitive selfie sticks (magnets had not yet been invented).

Thank you - I'm glad you've cleared that one up for me.
