From ClintB: 10mm SCW Trucks and Artillery & Feudal Samurai (32 points)


From Clint:
Yet more 10mm Pendraken figures. Starting with some heavy artillery. These are 2 French 155mm Field Guns crew and tows. As they are larger artillery I have given them regular army crew. As about 1/2 the army deserted at the start of the war both Republican and Nationalist forces had trained troops as well as militias so the uniforms don't really identify the troops.
The two lorries are generic lorries from the period (Skytrex 200 range Opel Blitz circa 1934). 
Additionally finishing as I started, here are 16 Pendraken Samurai Archers. I still have more to do of course and an order for more to pick up at Salute. These will just bulk out my red army with 4 extra stands.



Great work Clint. I had to laugh when I saw the first pics of the SCW vehicles. With how those trucks are set on that cliff backdrop they look as if they're pulling their own last stand, 'Thelma & Louise' style. ;)

Those samurai are fabulous with their sashimonos waving bravely in the wind. I really think this is a great scale for feudal Japanese wargaming as it provides the iconic mass of the period formations but yet, due to the small size of figures, reduces the perceived need to get drawn into all the crazy detail of the armour (right Tim!). 

These miniatures will give Clint 32 points. Well done!

  2. I don't know, Curt... I'd still feel the need to paint the cords in the armour... and THAT'S why I don't paint 10mm stuff!!

  4. Nice job on this scale again Clint. I like the way your shooting your pics lately. You did one last time on an angle and I find that visually interesting.

  6. Thank you all. Yes you are right to point out the dodgy photo angles with regard to the background. I make no excuses. I was in a rush and should have re taken them on viewing them.
