2 things, Maybe 3)

Firstly here are he remainder of the BoB Punjabi Indians that I have purchased. As with the others they are IT Miniatures and 1/72nd scale. Or 20mm if you want it in wargames speak. (here is a link)

8 in this batch making 24 in total. Which should give me a platoon strength os as close to it as I am likely to get. Only 3 different posses this time, but when mixed in with the others no one will notice.  No Officers as at least 1 platoon should be NCO led. Just to make it realistic!

I hope to do a group shot of the whole force sometime soon.

As for what is next there are several things on the painting table so It could be nearly anything. (sci fi , Fantasy or Historical)



Secondly and mostly for a laugh here is my last Radish dug up this year. I call it Franken-Radish. It is real, it is editable and I dug it up on Friday Morning!

The figure being a 20mm tall miniature is just for scale. I have not been terribly successful with Radish this year. They taste fine but look damn ugly!

It grew in 2 bursts hence the strange shape. And this is one of the ones that does not look RUDE! Most of the rest did look rude. But they taste OK and that is the main thing.

I still have Carrots Beet root and Cabbage to dig up! I have no idea what they will turn out like! My first time with all three of those.

Lastly Have a great Crimbo and I will post again soon. I KNOW I will be getting 2 things for the passing of Christmas (I know because I bought them). So In a few days I will do a loot post.

Until then, take care have fun pull a cracker, graon at a bad joke and do your best not to eat and drink too much

Cheers Clint

  1. Very nice BOB minis Clint, the radish looks like something out of a B movie like " The Radish that ate New York ! ".
    Hope you have a great Xmas

  2. More "BoB" Punjabi Indians to add to what must be an increasing number, Clint? All wonderfully painted as well. Really enjoying this series of postings, and looking forward to a group shot and AAR too ;-)

  3. Before I read your post I was convinced that your radish photos were of some kind of Cthulhoid monster!:-0

  4. I do like these guys - a lot - I may even consider getting some for my own use (Old Flory prob), I think I like them because of the flash of colour in their world of Khaki!

    1. Thank you Joe. It is the joy of Back of Beyond setting that you can mix troops so easily. It the game takes Off at the club I can see myself getting some Chinese troops as well. (And they should be colourful.... or very very drab depending on the force I settle on.)

  5. Great post to finish off the Christmas run-up Clint :-)
    Brilliant addition to your BoB forces (and I agree with Joe's comment about the 'splash of colour'), and your Radish deserves a place at the Miskatonic University!
    All the best to you and yours, and I hope you have a VERY Merry Christmas! :-)

    1. Thank you Addict. If any beetroot or carrots come out strange I will let you know. (The cabbages look very normal though. (Almost boring by comparison)

      Seasons greetings also to you and your family.
