BUF Cavalry.

Here today having finally gotten onto the computer we have a squad of British Union of Fascists (BUF). They are 20mm (1/72 scale) from IT Miniatures. At this stage they are 90% finished, with just the touching up to do and some tufts to put on the base, so let's call them done.  There is one officer (far right) and 9 other ranks which all have the same pose. All the horses are the same though, just painted in different colours. You can only just make out the red arm band on the figures left arms. You'll have to take my word for it but they also have lightning bolt flashes to the arm band (ok some did not come out that well but they all look OK if not perfect!).

 They all have black shirts and army green trousers typical of the BUF. The horses have a variety of blanket colours and different coloured tack. Overall I am pleased with how they have come out and think they will be a great addition to the proposed VBCW game.

Thanks for reading today and I will try to write again on Saturday. Only one more day of babysitting to go and am so looking forward to being able to do my own thing at least part of the day. Tomorrow I have to be Space marines and fight yet another 40k battle. I expect to lose the game big time, as my heart is really not in it. Anyway that's it for today. Speak to you soon.
Cheers Clint

  5. Looking fine. My mound of VCBW plastic is mounting. I have some communist cavalry and a troop of non-socialists to start with. I hope they come out half as good as yours.

  6. I have to say that they are amazing especially as they are not 28s but 20s. Great idea of mixing the British army trousers will the Black Shirts and it gives them a great and striking look.

    1. Thanks Pete. I have to say I'm quite pleased with them. I thought black shirts and army trousers were the BUF uniform!
