African Regulars and Mercenaries

A few of the just arrived Africans… I’m not normally a last in, first out kind of guy.. but these I wanted to get out of the way – they’re small in number and for an otherwise complete force. Getting them done right away means it’s one less force that I have gnawing on my mind like zombies moaning “paaaaaaiiiiinnt me… paaaaaaaaiiiiiinnnnt meeeee…” 

All these are form The Assault Group.

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

Newly arrived additional support for my African Regulars – most often fielded as the Federal Army of the Republic of Timbogo.

Here’s the entire force, platoon-ish in size…

Ready to crush the insurgency by the People’s Revolutionary Army of Timbogo!

I also finished up a few mercenaries…

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

The rest of the recently arrived Assault Group Africans are on the painting table – they’re mostly support for my African irregular militia. Hopefully I’ll get to them this week…

So many other things to finish up… I don’t know where to begin.

I’ve also been doing some other painting this week, and hope to do some more in the near future… 


  1. Excellent work! Who made the BTR 60s? Your army looks awesome...

    1. Thanks!

      The BTR-60s are Russian die-cast models approx 1/43 or 1/48 that I picked up off ebay. They're a tad on the biggish side... but look pretty cool all re-painted and stuff - and very versatile - BTR-60s show up everywhere! They'll carry all manner of africans, middle-easterners, and gen-u-ine cold war commies!?
