WIP - British Officers and some Rangers....

Three Work in Progress shots to share. A combination of four Wartime Miniatures WW2 British Officer types in 20mm, and some Rangers in 28mm (no, not the Point du Hoc variety, but I suppose I could call them "Dog Company" or something gritty like that - ah, perhaps accompanied by a  wolfhound in 28mm could look the part? hmmmnnnn..... ;)



These figures just need their bases doing, Rangers have had sand glued on
 & Brits have just been glued to their washers.
 


The Brits in front of the other Rangers which are in a much earlier stage of
painting, but I stuck some sand on just 'cause I was doing the others.
 

First three members of "Dog Company" on their own without their wee friends :)
More to follow in due course.....

Anyone want anything painted for money? I'm out of a job at the moment...

  1. gorgeous painting, I envy people who still have time/will to take their brush and paint (barely have time for board wargames).

    The british soldiers in particular are well constrasted and fascinating, rangers are good too.

    1. Thanks so much Brax.
      Time is something I have quite a bit of at the moment. I don't get much wargaming in of late though, unless you count some PC gaming.

    1. Thanks Nick. The Wartime Miniatures are great little sculpts making them easier to paint IMO.

  4. I like them very much John. These Wartime miniatures look very good. Too bad they are located in Australia.. nice work on the rangers also. :)

    1. Glad you like them T. You can get the Wartime Miniatures through Elhiem in the UK too, they really are excellent little figures.

    1. Greetings oh bearded one!
      Action? Should I wear my tin hat?
      Glad you liked that British Staff. The painting of maps was facilitated by Wartime Miniatures having a handy grid sculpted into the surfaces...

  6. Thought just occurred. Quote for command base vignette for Wellington and Paget - a la cinema - for up coming Waterloo bi-centennial punch up needed. Contact asap.

    1. What, more thoughts?
      Wellington & Paget you say, mounted or on foot? Unfortunately I don't have the appropriate figures in my stash at the moment, you would have to supply. Email me at: jacksarge777 at gmail dot com so we can discuss further.

  7. Amazing Stuff! I really love the works! Just out of curiosity, how long on average does it take you to finish a figure? Or for that matter, this whole set of figures?

    1. Hi Jiaqi. Thanks for your kind words.
      I'm really not sure how long it takes me, as I do not take much notice of the time when painting. I am not a speed painter, unless it is really necessary.

    2. I see. great work nonetheless.
      So i am guessing these are done over a period of time yeah? Not like over one day yes?

    3. Yes, over a period of time, it depends on how inspired to paint I am feeling :)
