More Lads – IRA (4)

Just finished a few more lads for the good fight.  I’ve painted all these poses before, just trying to keep the paint schemes separate enough to keep them all unique looking.

BUF (3) – Command

I’ve been wanting to add this command group for a while, so I’m really glad to have finished them.  The models are great and lots of fun to paint.  I added a spare British Regular command figure and just painted him in BUF colors.  I think it’s fair to assume that he might have had […]

Rolls Royce 1920 MK 1

I found a nice vehicle to accompany my British troops in the IWI or VBCW.  It’s a very nice Rolls Royce 1920 MK1.  It’s from Company B, but at the time that I ordered it they were out of stock and I had to order from Brigade Games. This was a tricky model to put together, luckily […]

Fresh B’Hoys – IRA (3)

Just finished popping the paint on some new B’hoys.  This is the second group of the Musketeer IRA Advancing models that I painted.  I swear I ordered the IRA Shotguns pack, but I’ll roll with it.   I’m going to need multiple packs of each before the end. I’ve tried to paint each group with […]

British Regulars (2)

I’m becoming quite addicted to these Musketeer Miniatures.  It seems they are incredibly fun to paint, I just wish there was less cleanup involved in the process.  It seems that the mold lines take quite a bit of work to get rid of, and there are some blemishes on many faces that I dare not […]

Crossley Tenders

I’ve been watching these little beauties on other peoples photos for a while now.  These trucks are called Crossley Tenders and they carted the Black and Tans and Auxies around Ireland during the Irish War of Independence.  There’s lots of great footage of the troops packed into the back of these trucks and tooling around […]

Fixing Up My Musketeer Miniatures

I have been quite taken with the Musketeer Miniatures line of figures for the Very British Civil War, they are one of only maybe two or three people out there making figures specifically for this somewhat unique setting.  They are sculpted by Paul Hicks and quite simple to paint.  My only problem so far has […]

BUF (2)

I’ve been planning on adding more troops to my VBCW project for a while, but I got sidetracked for a while with starting my own miniatures line.  At the moment I don’t have anything to do but wait, so on to more painting. This is a pretty tame group, just a few more weak minds […]

English Regulars, BUF, IRA, and Eddie

I have been wanting to paint this lot for some time.  All of the models are from the Musketeer Miniatures Interwar and WW1 ranges, with one exception.   The figure of Edward is a freebie given away at a British wargames show called Partizan.  A very nice gentleman sent it to me, thank you again sir.
