yes today we have Private Walker in muffy. (I admit I painted his eyes wrong). But here he is none the less. he does have the distinctive sky blue arm bands of the Anglican league as Matt wanted them painted but us main weapon is a kitchen knife tied to a broom handle. (Ok there is also a rifle on his back but you cannot see it from this angle).

While in the Tv series he is mostly in a grey suit (when not in uniform) I went for a brown suit instead simply as Wilson is in a grey suit and I did not want tem looking similar.

Overall apart from the eyes I am happy with the figure as he does fit in very well with the rest. As with all the others Bolt action warlord games 28mm Home Guard. But you know all that.

I had a mini pre Christmas splurge. It is a combination of 3 things.
 1} Knowing that I have the painting Challenge coming up! And wanting something easy to paint because I am a wimp!
And 2} Ground Zero Games having a pre Christmas sale.... yes I am weak.
Ok and 3} Being told I need to buy things for Christmas so my Mother and sister know what to get me.

The results is that I am giving up on 15mm sci fi. (Sob sob or Cheers if you don't like science fiction). So My plan is to re-paint my 6mm desert terrain. (That will be coming soon on this blog)>
And instead of 15mm Sci fi swap to 6 mm science fiction (Hooray! or Bo If you choose) .

As a Result I went to my local wargames/model/railway shop which stock Brigade games and bought some sci fi trucks in 6mm. These will not interfere with GZG and should compliment them. And as the "Dirtside" rules are free to down load I will be playing them as I know some of the club are interested as long as they do not need to buy anything, paint anything or read any rules, but they do like the "Stargrunt" rules so with luck in the new year we shall be playing "Dirtside!" (No Ray that is not a sexual thing!!!)


  1. Another rain addition to the Walmington-on-sea Home Guard!

    Love Dirstide - I still have a couple of exercise books with scribbled vehicle designs and army lists :-)

    1. Thank you Paul. I suspect one of the problems being that some players will try to build UBER tanks in Dirtside! I hope they cannot.

      As for Walmington on sea the force grows steadily.

  2. Yeah Ray you weirdo, nice work all the same old boy!

  3. Another splendid addition to the ranks.

  4. I saw the title and expected a zombie, but realised it could also be a Texas Ranger, but of course once the medication kicked in I knew exactly what would be proffered. Good figure to add to the mufti forces of Capt. M. - though I did think he looked very much like one of the "Carving knife" brigade from Old Glory. (which could also be very good figures for (VBCW).

  5. Very nice work on Mr Walker!

  6. Thanks Guys. My Internet has been down for a few days. So could not reply any sooner.
