Northumbria Police

These are some of the miniatures that came into my possession after getting thoroughly carried away at Border Reiver 2011 despite setting firm spending limits before I left home!  Unfortunately I've been away with work a lot over the last few weeks and so not had time to get much painting done.  Anyway, here a few of the Policemen that I bought from Reiver Castings.  I've also got a unit of their Police cavalry to paint as well.  Very good value for money and they paint up better than the bare lead suggests.  I will be making decals for the helmets as soon as my new printer arrives.

They still need texture to be added to their bases but unfortunately I'm away with work again a lot over the next 2-3 weeks.

I ordered these chaps a few weeks ago after failing to secure the rather fine motorbike mounted signaller from a fellow on the Gentleman's Wargame Parlour.  I think that these are lovely miniatures and have done what I can to make them live up to their sculpting.  The sniper will probably be employed as a Ghillie for Lord Percy's Peasant Shooting Party but all the others will probably be involved with my Regular or Territorial forces.  I still need to add texture to the bases but other than that the only thing left to do is learn how to take photos that look any good as my current macro use leaves rather a lot to be desired!
