BUF Auxilary (Part 2)

Well I suspected that I would get them finished and well, here they are. 10 more BUF Auxilary troops for a very British Civil war. There are a few weapon swaps mostly changing a rifle here and there for a smg which can be seen twice in the top picture. One kneeling guy has a rifle, the other a sub machinegun. Also the two guys o the right were the exact same figure until Matt swapped one rifle for an SMG.


On the second picture the man on the right has been converted to be a flag bearer but for the first time ever Matt did not include a flag pole for me, so it is easier to leave him un-flagged! The man in the centre is carrying lewis gun ammunition while the one on the left is an officer of some description.

So that is it for today 10 more troops all for Matt and I will pass them on tomorrow at the club and I hope pic up some more figures to paint.

Have a good weekend.
Cheers  for looking Clint

  1. Terrific stuff Clint and that's a formidably-sizeable force you've painted ultra-fast and ultra-well. If Matt doesn't have any more minis for you to paint then drop me a line. I have a few hundred you can do for me :-o

    1. Cheers Blax. It should be noted that mat and myself have been friends for years and he does hand over cash for the painted figures. And As you may guess cash is always welcome.

  3. Well done! Will we ever get a picture of this force on the table or all together at least?

    1. Thank you Robert. I cannot answer that. After I give the figures back to Matt it is up to him. But he does say they will take the table sometime.

  4. Not a bad group of chaps but a bit working class for Spode's Blackshorts. :)

    1. Thank you John. One only paints the uniforms. One does not bring up the men.

  5. Graet work there Clint and there are a great feel to them. The uniform of the BUF Aux in the Somerset Campaign book were best of the BUF Aux I had painted for my forces as I preferred the use of grey over black.

    1. Thank you Pete. I also prefer the grey to the black. And it is good to know that was your intent. It has been great working on these.

    1. Thank you Bob. You may thank Peter Barfield for the grey as all the colours are taken from his illustrations.

  7. The officer for this lot caught my attention, looking very much a very no nonesense business-like type. I do like the variation of simple weapon swaps especially as they're not noticeable.

    1. Thank you Joe. I am not sure what kind af animal skin he wears across his shoulders, but his stance is very authoritarian.
