Badmash Militia



These fearsome chaps were yet another planned entry for the 'Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge' that I sadly didn't manage to progress any further than their black undercoat!  Having reunited myself with them, I was hopeful that I might be able to get them off the table relatively quickly, but then I decided to do stripes!


These were from the wonderful 'Mutineer Miniatures' and besides my mutterings were actually a joy to paint.  Wonderfully animated and full of character they will add to the slowly growing mutineer force.  I now need to decide whether or not to rebase my earlier efforts! 


I also managed to finally get around to following up a lead that Andrew Saunders from 'Loki's Great Hall' had alerted me to that of 'Tajima Miniatures'.  Great product and service and as you can see a nice variety of scale with the tufts; certainly worth a look.

  10. Love the stripes mate. Great choice of colours and it really paid off the extra effort. Agree with Scott too, your skin tones are spot on. Care to share your technique?

    Never heard of Tajima - I'll have to check them out...

  25. These chaps are simply splendid. The striped cloth is a winning touch (I can always appreciate good work on textiles!), and the skin tones have been accomplished with a great deal of subtlety.

    Excellent work as usual!
