After a brief (or… not so brief…) hiatus I finally got back to work on my New Masters.
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)
The two on the left of the picture are French Troupes de la Marine and a Canadien habitant militia. I did a bit of caving on the English figures, and added belts to a couple – nothing significant enough to include in the picture. It’s too bad it’s not a better picture – I’m really happy with some of the details I put on the Militiaman.
The little guy is a 20mm 1980’s Canadian infantryman – and he’s more or less DONE! (Guess I better order some new rubber!) I’ll probably add a rifle sling yet. I can’t decide if I should do a second riflemen… and SMG… and GPMG… On one had this guy wasn’t all that hard, on the other… I am a lazy bastard….
The big shiny guy is a doll my friend John made for some mid-late 19th century 40mm toy soldier-ish figures. He gave me a couple and asked me to do the British. I’ve carvd some of the unnecessary bits off and have applied the hose tops for a HIGHLANDER!! I’ve been feeling the itch to model some kilts again since I started following Fitz-Badger’s work on his own lovely jocks on The Soweiter League Blog
As you can see I’ve been experimenting with “brown stuff”. I think I like it a bit better than the “green stuff”. I think I might try and order in some ProCreate to give that a try. Conveniently it is carried by Military Miniatures USA - one of the distributors my Friendly Local Game Store deals with!
