First up is some Black and Tans or Royal Irish Constabulary Auxiliaries. I have a keen interest in the Irish Wars and the Troubles which seem to go hand in hand of growing up in Glasgow. I have wanted to painted these great figures for a while now and glad i finally got them done. I do plan to some games with them doing some raids and ambushes. I will pad out the numbers with some of the British WW1 Regulars that i have previously painted up for my VBCW games. I also have loads of IRA that i will paint up as well that can be used as Militia types for VBCW and SCW game so it's a win win situation.
Figures are all Musketeer Miniatures.
Next up is some British Red Devils. Another great interest due a watching a movie called Bridge Too Far when i was a kid in a cottage in Longueval when i was over at the Somme with my Father. These will be used for either Bolt Action or Chain of Command. This is just the first lot but they are probably not kitted out correctly for a squad. The next ones im painting are a squad plus command so will need watch what im paint to make sure im spreading the equipment out evenly for the squads. I wanted these guys to be battling it out in the bricks of Arnhem and i enjoyed doing something different on these bases.
Figures are Artizan Designs.
On the painting table. Currently i have a Unit of Roman Legionaries, more Red Devils, SCW Falange and loads of others bits n bobs. I also picked these guys up from Studio Miniatures and can't explain how excited i was when i seen them. They will be available at Salute and im sure many will buy them for sure.
