LAM London Bobbies

I didn’t plan to paint these lads so early in the VSF world, but due to an order mix-up I became the proud owner of them.  They really grew on me from the start.  My original plan for my VSF forces involves defending Britain from Zombies and fighting Prussian spies, so the muscle is going to be Artizan Bobbies with guns.  That left me with a dilemma, what to do with these pseudo coppers?  I came up with some sort of liaison from the military to work with the VSF special forces lads.

I’ve read about the Zulus wars extensively, so I had to go with green cuffs and collars for the 24th of course.  I struggled with the helmet color though, white (foriegn service), black (home service), or tea stained (practical field alteration of white hat)?  In the end I went with white  to keep the model bright and cheery.  The cords to the LAM VSF weapons and tools is typcially painted red and blue, so I altered the colors a  bit, and even considered a green cord for a while.

Hope you like ’em.
