To my great shame these guys were started in December last year and only now have I finished painting them. That said I think that they turned out rather well. More here link

They look great, and useful for many things.

Anton,

Looks like the guy of the right is mimicing Babe Ruth's famous gesture about where he was going to his the home run.

Great job on all these guys.

Jim

Ruth did start as a pitcher, so maybe 'well see what kind of reach he gets with the stick grenade?

79th PA, I intend on getting another set (and using spare bits from the Great War Brits and Germans) to build Irish Republican Army troops from the Irish War of Independence

Nice paint job.

Nicely done.

If you bought another set of Brits you could paint them in police black-green instead of khaki and you'd have RUC B Specials, Anton.

As well as performing routine internal security duties they also fought in the largest action in Ireland since the Easter Rising: the twin battles of Pettigo and Belleek in May to June 1922, in which pro and anti-treaty IRA units fought on the same side against British forces that included armour and aircraft.

Henry Martini, I did buy two sets. Now I have to find compatible size figures to use as R.I.C.s

I was planning on using 02Hundred Hours rules to model the IRA attacks against barracks and depot as well as the roadside ambuscades

They do look awesome, despite (or because of) how long they took.

Anton Ryzbak26 Oct 2023 2:22 p.m. PST

Obelindes Sol LIC, Actually, once I decided to paint them it only took a couple of days……the rest of the time was excuses, other projects and general faffing about. Being retired I do have the time, it is just that I find painting to be quite a chore now that my eyes and hands don't work as they used to.
