No doubt Gharak will have a few hundred points waiting in the wings. But here I am with another motley collection. First up, some transport for my commandos, two rather grubby jeeps. I only had one suitable driver, which is a pain. I had some fun magnetising him on so both can serve as battlefield litter. They have been in the box for a year, they were picked up ages ago in a sale. I wouldn't normally base vehicles, but these are a bit tiddly - they are metal West Wind sculpts, which I think are 1:60. The bases hopefully give the illusion of more size, offset the bases on the miniatures a bit and stop you placing troops too close. The Commando alongside is for scale only, he was painted a long time ago. I had them finished then managed to drop one and mangle the windscreen. I mostly got it back into shape, but it needed a good touch-up.
Also, my entry fee. Samurai seem to be an excuse to get the colours out and I really fancied the challenge of doing yellow. So you get a very yellow samurai! I added a bit of freehand to break it up, but I couldn't quite face doing the design all over. He is from the Perry Miniatures unarmoured set.
Those jeeps are great, but I agree, they are a bit like clown cars compared some beefy 28mm figures. Perhaps you can make up a driver in a Shriner's outfit! Beep Beep!
The samurai is gorgeous. I love the yellow / red combination (like the lads above!) and the flower pattern is amazingly well executed - bravo and thank you!
These two jeeps, driver and Ronin #33 will give Phil 55 points. Great job!
