Artizan Designs Maquis - also perfect for 1938 VBCW

I can't remember when I picked these guys up but they have proven to be really lovely miniatures and persuaded me to order several more packs from the Thrilling Tales range that Partizan offer.  They are very well sculpted and cast and I think that they've painted up rather well without much effort.

The other miniatures that I have from Artizan have now been prepped and undercoated and are awaiting the attention of my brushes.  There are a couple of section of Police from the Long Arm of the Law range as well as a couple of packs from their Very Private Army Range.

Field Communications

No military operation is likely to succeed without effective communications and as I was already ordering the British Casualties pack from Great War Miniatures I decided to add these guys too.  I decided that the chap with the binos would be more suited to being a Royal Artillery Forward Observation or similar rather than another scaleyback.

The Casualties of War

I realised a little while ago that I didn't have any models to represent casualties.  I secured the civilian stretcher bearers from a chap on the Gentlemens Wargames Parlour.  They were nicely painted but didn't really fit in with the style of the rest of my miniatures so I popped a quick lick of fresh paint over them.  The rest are from the Great War Miniatures pack of British Casualties.  They're lovely sculpts but a complete pain to texture the bases on the chaps on the ground.  I removed the rifle from one of the chaps.  Not sure why I did that, it might have been miscast or something but my memory fails me.

More BEF British Infantry of the 50th (Northumbrian) Division

It seems like forever since I last wrote anything on here.  I've been running around all over the place, working like a man possessed and getting no time for painting.  I finally had some time over this weekend so the brushes came out to finally finish another section of the rather fine Early War British Infantry from BEF Miniatures that is now owned by Warlord.  I love these models, I think that they are some of the best sculpts available.
