A world afalme... well nearly.

Well as mentioned some painted figures. No not what you were expected. These are 20mm Russian Civil War figures by IT miniatures. The Donkey comes from the WW1 range. I think French, but could be British or German. Anyway we were talking about some interwar period games at the club and I had these in the painting queue and so I finally took the plunge and got them painted. They are not brilliant but they are at least painted and look about right for some "20mm BACK OF BEYOND" games which will most likely never happen but a squad ad a supply mule finished anyway.

Thanks for looking, more again soon.

All the best Cheerio
Clint

    1. Thank you Matt. Luckily for me I already have enough 20mm terrain for this!(My Afghan boards which are 1/72.)

  5. Nice tosee you painting stuff for yourself, even if you don't seem too enthusiastic about them !
    I think they look good btw.

    1. Thanks Joe. It is not a lack of enthusiasm for the figures it was that they were painted for a game and the game folded. Hence my disappointment.

  6. Agreed it's nice to see you painting your own miniatures for a change, Chris keeps on at me about 20mm but I do love the 28's!

    1. Thanks Andy. I like all size miniatures for all different reasons. I find 20mm best for any 1939 era onwards and 10mm for most earlier periods. BUT (you knew there was a but!!!) For skirmish games I prefer 28mm figures.

  8. I know I should talk about these wonderful minis (and they are), but man that backdrop is impressive. I WANT it :))

    1. Thanks Stephen. The backdrop is just an A$ dot matrix computer print from the internet It is one of several I use as I dislike figures on a plain background where all the mistakes are clear and obvious.

  9. hi Clint. The backdrop idea really works. I now know why Stevie has been asking me to paint him a few for a while now. hmmmm, I`ll get on with it fairly soon I think. Seeing yours I now see the importance.

    1. Thank you Hil. As mentioned previously the backdrop is just a down loaded picture from the internet and printed off. So much easier than painting one!
