At first I rummaged through my lead pile looking for an old mini that has been lying around for years unpainted, but nothing really grabbed me. Suddenly, I saw this box on the shelf of my local gaming website, and knew it was meant to be.
Army - A BBC staple and a show that I used to love watching with my dad
as a kid, mostly because it was one of the few shows he would sit down
and watch back then. Not the original screening from 1968-1977, as that
was a little bit before my time. No, I mean one of the many re-runs that
followed afterwards, in my case, the late 80's.
minis arrived in less than stellar condition, poor Private Frank will
have to watch himself with his Tommy gun since the barrel was twisted
off. They were however, a delight to paint, and I felt the sculpts
captured the... character of the characters =) Hopefully my painting
isn't too far off. I wasn't able to get the civilian versions finished,
as the cobblestone bases I ordered didn't arrive in time.
can't wait to get them on the table. I imagine that after an
appropriately hilarious misadventure, they might find themselves
confusedly wandering around France, with the warden along to make sure
they are putting out the lights!
All up that's eight 28 mm figures from Warlords Games, that brought back some fond memories!
