Mixed Bag today.

Well it never rains but it pours! Just when you think you'll get one thing done you have a little spurt and get a couple done instead. First off we have a collection of German WW1 troops in 28mm. Sorry no idea what the manufacture is as I have painted these for a friend. I am a big fan of the faces though the sculpting is very straight forward and crisp. It has those not too try hard look. These may have come out a little too blue, but early war German Uniforms as witness on the Renegade Miniatures web site, or even on the box of Airfix soldiers is closer to that than the grey green later in the conflict.

I have also managed to sort out a limber for my SCW forces. So this is another 10mm figure. It did come as part of the 10mm Colonial troops I bought on eBay. But as I only had 1 set of riders for 3 limbers and a wagon it just made sense to use them for the SCW. I will no doubt get more limber riders for the colonial stuff in the near future, but for now this can be a Spanish Civil War limber. Which is not to say that I have an abundance of towed artillery.

Well that's it for today. I intend to do my next update on Tuesday. So until then take care and get some painting done. All the best Clint

  1. Nice work on these, the guys in helmets might be Foundry - their poses look similar to some Foundry Jaeger I have. Best, Dean

    1. Thank you Dean, they may well be Foundry. They just don't feel like Foundry to me though. But could be!

  2. I like the browns you used on the greatcoat. Looks like real leather. The faces turned out well too.

    Nice job on the 10mm as well.

    1. Thank you Peter. I am sure you would be using them in a VBCW game. And why not.

  6. The german blue, came in a lot of shades early in the war iirc, yours are very acceptable, the officer in the greatcoat looks excellent.

    Limber for your SCW is a good find, you must be very pleased with it.

    May have been a mixed bag this week, but every little helps

    1. Thanks Joe your words are very pleasing to hear. I believe some early German uniforms were of Corduroy as well for even greater variety!

      Yeah the SCW limber is a pleasant find as it allows me to move another gum on the table top.

    The Germans might be a bit off, indeed, but I really like the contrast on the uniforms.

    1. Cheers Mate. Have a look at Musketeer miniatures for ww1 28mms You might find them more to your liking. Or Great war Miniatures which are my favourites. Woodbine Miniatures are also highly recommended.
