Finally some Fallshirmjägers…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

These are all from Bolt Action Miniatures/Warlord Games. I was kind of toying around with the camo, but not totally satisfied with any of these… Well the two riflemen on the outside aren't so bad. I think I need to make the brown and green "splinters" a bit smaller and the background khaki a bit darker (or use the light greenish colour I used on the fellow on the left of the picture...).

Another British Infantryman from Artizan Designs that I’ve painted as a Canadian armoured officer from the 4th Armoured Division. I mixed up some lighter battledress green which I’m much happier with – I even went back and Highlighter the ones I finished the other day.

This is a Japanese infantryman. I THINK it’s from Battle Honors - I won them on ebay… so I’m not entirely sure. They’re really nice figures. Well… I think so… I like that there are a number of kneeling figures. I dislike the inclusion of prone machine-gunners when there’s at least a few kneeling figures in a section. It drives me cRaZy when manufacturers make prone machinegunners but ALL the other figures are standing!?

I’ve picked up a couple more packs of Battle Honors 28mm WW2 stuff in the last week or so, as well as a couple lots that I suspect are Battle Honors – Russians, Germans, British, etc. I’m quite excited to see how they look.

There should be some other Japanese in the mail from a trade… and I’ve started eyeing up some of the Japanese from The Assault Group!?

How on earth did I get sucked into the PTO!? GAH!?

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

More Japanese seem to be the next things likely to be finished up… unless something else arrives in the mail and utterly distracts me!? OR someone else paints up something pretty and posts it on their blog and utterly distracts me (like… say… neldoreth and his pretty Qin Dynasty Chinese!? That's almost enough to get me painting my L5R stuff again... almost...)


  1. Great work as always. Very nice. I hate you. But its a good hate, like how you like to hate Darth Vader or Darkness from Legend.

  2. Cheers!

    Legend!? Now there's a movie I haven't thought of in a while... Was that Tim Curry? I think there was a goblin in that movie that said "may be pretty, may be sweet... not half as nice as rotting meat!" referring to the female lead.... Was that the chick from Ferris Beuller's day off? It's been a while...

  3. I recomend The Assault Group's Japanese figures. I have a bunch of them but I have not finished painting them yet. Another casualty of too many projects.

  4. Yeah, that was her, played the character Sloan. Very pretty lady :)

    It is a little scary you can quote the Goblin's rhyme from that. I remembered it after you printed it. LOL! Are YOU a goblin in secret Tim?

    Do you have the Unicorn's horn?


  5. great job on the German Paras Tim - very Eagle Has Landed!


  6. Cheers!

    Weren't they all in British uniforms in The Eagle Has Landed...? Or am I thinking of another movie...?
