Kevin returns with this wonderful selection of miniatures for us to enjoy.
For this entry, I have some BOLT ACTION WWII Russian Scouts. Nothing too fancy with these figures, basic "amoeba" style camouflage suits and one model with a DP light machine gun. The actual BOLT ACTION rules don't allow Russian Scouts to have a DP LMG, but other rules may, so I painted him as well.
Next up, is the Sohei (Monks) Buntai for the RONIN skirmish game, by North Star. Again, nothing too fancy - I just followed the "box art." I wanted to try and get these guys done quickly, as I have all the Buntai figure sets from the RONIN line, and when I try and get "fancy" (ie: creative) with my painting, I tend to get bogged down, and it takes me forever to finish things!
I had a number of things planned for the Fortnight Challenges, but because of the 'funk' I've been in the past few months, they just never materialized. Case-in-point, this entry was either going to be a "Villain" or "Hero" entry.
I picked up lots of miniatures and games from my friend Tim's estate sale, including a bunch of the little, dark grey Copplestone boxes. I didn't really even look in them at the time, but they were "Copplestone" so I scooped them up as I love his work!
As I was sifting through things over the last few months, I found the "not Samuel L. Jackson" figure in one of those little boxes! I have had the "not John Travolta" Foundry figure based and primed for years! But I never got around to painting it, as I didn't have the companion figure. Now I had the companion figure, so it was time to get things done. And depending on your point of view from the movie, these guys could easily be either "Villain" or "Hero." I don't know if it will be visible in the photo, but I even got Vincent's (Travolta) golden earring!
Now that they're done, I feel like a ROYALE with Cheese!
Lovely work Kevin. I always love seeing your stuff as its just so smooth. That monk in black is my favourtie, he looks quite the hard-ass with that 'Osaka Slugger'!
This wonderful assortment of miniatures will give Kevin 80 points. Great job and welcome to the Wild Bunch - you still have lots of time to participate in the madness!
