PARTISANS 28 mm

While prepping my next lot of French Indian war miniatures, I painted these 28mm Partisans  from Warlord games. 

I picked these up on the cheap last years at MOAB gaming convention  bring and buy store.

I thought they would be great for gaming a special mission scenario, teaming up with some British Paras or Commandoes; lovely defined metal models to paint.

Partisans chasing out the last German remnant from the village. 
The whole section with a variety of weapons.






The female figure is the sections Junior Leader.

I really didn't like this figure so I decided to improve it by  removing the skirt and trimming away the socks on the original Warlord games figure and reshaping them into trousers.

BRITISH 3 POUNDER CANNON

While waiting on the flock to dry on my French Infantry figures I completed this small project.

This post features a British 3 pdr Artillery canon in 28mm from Perry Miniatures.


Imagine shows the figures with flash removed and glued on metal bases, you may notice a French gun and figures present. 

Here are the 4 supplied figures painted and flocked.



The crew's coat colour is a mix of Vallejo Model colour Intense Blue,Black Grey and Stone Grey 








I prefer to base the figures on individual bases as causality figures can be removed easily.

WOODLAND INDIANS, RITUALIST "medicine man" and DANIEL LIENARD DE BEAUJEU

 While working on my 28mm French Infantry for FIW , I paused to work on these figures. The first figure is a converted Perry metal miniature, the other 3 figures are free bees from M&T.


First time, painting up a Native American Indian.
My first attempt at painting a Native American Indian, a nice change from painting WW 2 figures.


His a bit of a blood thirsty warrior, a nicely sculptured figure.


This figure represents a French man, named Daniel Lienard De Beajueu who allowed himself to be painted up with Indian war paint to co-erst his Indian allies to attack the British who where advancing towards the French fort.
I really did not like this figure and found his stance a bit weird, so instead of throwing him into the reject bin, I decided to send him into surgery cutting legs and limbs and re-positing them to try and make him a bit more presentable.
Finished figure with a some Indian warpaint added.





For my American Native Indian force, I  decided to purchased Perry FIW metal miniatures, I really did not have any use for this figure so I decided to convert him into a  Indian Ritualist. 
First step, use a hobby knife to remove his musket, feather on-top of his head and his pointed finger. I then used a hobby drill bit to make a hole in both clenched fists and used a trimmed  paper clip into both hands and glued in place with super glue. I then used Milliput to sculpt a face mask,tortoise shell and his mystical wand.
Finished figure.


Cheers John.
