Officers of the Day.

 Yes some more VBCW figures. This time to socialist officers. One with a mega phone shouting orders, possibly a commissar or political officer. The Other with binoculars and pointing. I put more gold on the second figure as I appeared more senior in rank than the first one. Again painted to represent Russian uniforms as befits the Socialist in a Very British Civil War.

As with the others they were painted for Matt and his growing collection of figures and they are already in his keeping. I will post again in 2 days, as some of the morris dancers are now finished, and I am starting on a couple of civilians (a verger and a nun).

After that I may well do some figures for myself, well that's the plan. Not sure what they will be yet as it will have to be whatever takes my fancy on the day. Only time can tell.

Thanks for looking today and with luck see you in 2 days time. All the best Clint

    1. Thanks Lee. I have known Matt a good number of years. I went to school with his brother. So happy to paint for him. (Or anyone else if they pay me!)

  3. Great pair of figures Clint, the leather belts and boots are really subtle details that could easily be missed - very impressive.
    The question is though when do we see all these great figures you've been painting hitting the table ?

    1. Thank you Blax. The Green is just the way it came out after mixing, not 100% sure I could make it exactly the same next time.
