I am still rather enamoured with Mark Copplestone's "Little Soldiers", a range of 30mm (more or less) figures representing a few Imagi-nations armies styled for the Inter-war period. I've also added a few items from other ranges
Here is an officer whom I felt looked rather Austro-Hungarian and that's the way I painted the figure:
|Painted in a colour called "Liberty Blue", this figure|
seemed to have an Imperial vibe.
Dark green facings with lighter green piping...
to be honest, I'm rather pleased.
Here is an officer-type figure who has a real Spanish Civil War aura about him. He even has a tie!
|This guy looks really Spanish Republican.|
I only noticed the tie as I began painting him.
I'm wondering if more figures will be made in the side cap.
And some figures from various sources and ranges that were fun to paint.
|The "crazy pirate monkey"|
One of the players in my Traveller campaign has a pet monkey,
and this new figure will fit the need exactly.
Is he a character from Treasure Island?
He could be a figure for a naval team in The Silver Bayonet.
|My friend, Ralph fired up his 3-D printer and printed up some|
inter-war period tanks for me. (Thanks, Ralph!)
This FT-17 will be a nice addition to my SCW troops.
|Ralph also printed up a few figures.|
Here is a sci-fi female that my eldest instantly annexed
for their use in Traveller. I'm fine with this!
All for now. Just so you know, I often paint while watching the Toronto Blue Jays' games. Yes, I'm a fan and saw them at that Rogers Centre in Toronto last week! I'm actually enjoying watching baseball again!
|Yes, the cap is an antique, but it's mine!|
