Painting for a friend (3)

Yes another lot of British naval landing party. As they are a friends I am not totally sure but I do think there is one Copplestone and the other 4 Perrys. They are definitely two different makes yet do fit together very well. These are the last of the infantry (at least for now, who knows what will happen in the future!) I will be prepping some machinguns next for him which I hope to do today.
Given that these 5 figures would equate to 25 points in Curt's challenge I will need to pick my speed up somewhat. I will also have to start something else to take me up to the start date for the challenge but at present unsure what that will be. But I shall try to select something simple so that I can be finished in plenty of time. Ray Rousel has suggested I paint some of his figures if I choose. It is a very kind offer but at present I will decline this very kind offer.

Thanks for reading and with luck I shall have something ready for Friday. Take care have fun and get some brushes wet!

Cheers Clint

  2. The 2nd and 3rd figures from the left look slightly bigger than the other 3, I think. Not so much that I wouldn't use them together, but maybe these are the ones from a different manufacturer?

    1. The one in the centre is Copplestone I am told. The rest probably Perry's. Thanks Colgar. I would use them together as well because not everyone has the same body dimensions.

  3. They look good to me; there's something about our sailor boys on landing parties etc. that really brings out the jingoism in me.

    1. Yes the British Navy in Victorian times.... Sail to exciting and adventurous places, enjoy the sun and exotic beaches, meet the local inhabitants and kill them all. I think that's what you mean!

      Thanks Jo

  4. Those look nice and as my first husband (deceased) was a sailor, I must say I like them.

    Instead of painting something new, begin prepping for the Challenge. I just finished painting five figures for a kid in Canada and I'm actually enjoying the quiet, easy work of priming and removing flash and mold lines.

    1. There are still over a week before the challenge and I have enough prepped to start. It's a good idea though. Or I could start to make some scenery for next years show game. I'll see what I feel like tomorrow. Thank you Anne nice to hear from you again.

    1. He would only be a cad IF he said they were his work during the painting challenge. But there is no hint of that to be fair. Thank you Fran
