From TamsinP - Another Six Civvies (30 points)

The trouble with being back at work is that you don't get as much time for painting. So, this entry has taken me more days than the previous ones to complete.

So, for my third entry, here are the other six collateral damage civilians for Salutesville. The figures are 28mm from Blue Moon again.

Some close-up pics:

I think I've managed to sort out the lighting issues for my pics. Now I've just got to do something about my crap camera skills!

Six 28mm foot figures will be another 30 points.

I was joking with Tamsin when she submitted these, saying, 'I think that Mum is carting a bomb in her pram' (or perhaps a 'Chicago Typewriter'!) What a characterful lot. I particularly like the girl i the green dress hailing a cab, and also the one in the red dress with the wrap, but I think she needs a poodle at her feet!
Lovely work Tamsin! 


  1. Excellent... I suspect that's no baby in the pram..

  2. Nice work Tamsin, the Pram brings to mind a scean from the Untouchables but my exact memories are hazzy.

  3. its a good collection, love the color pallette.

  4. Well done. These should come in handy.

  5. I'm really liking these Blue Moon figures. I had been thinking about Call of Cthulu in 20mm. I may have to give in and do it in 28mm.

  6. Interesting figures Tamsin, very nice indeed!

  7. Some more excellent work on the good citizens of Anytown, USA!

  8. I do find this project inspiring! I shall paint a gangster or two as well now!

  9. Really useful figures, and a very nice painting work.

  10. Nicely done (as usual) - I'm looking forward to hearing about your first gangsters game with these figures

  11. Another strong entry Tamsin. The chap in the light suit makes me thing of Cagney somehow - same swagger.

  12. Your making Salutevuille the place to visit, lovely work


  13. Looking good Tamsin. Good to see plenty of civvies being done as they're often neglected...

  14. Really nice stuff! For some reason, the nanny with the pram is my fav of the batch.

  15. Great work, Tamsin! There can never be too many CoBs on the streets, these look really good too!

  16. @ Curt - Hmm, a poodle. Or maybe one of those fluffy, yappy, biting, irritating rats? :)

    @ Martin - thanks! :)

    @ Greg - cheers! :)

    @ Dave D - there is a baby in the pram; she's Mrs Finlayson ;)

    @ Adam - that's a great scene :)

    @ Toturi - thank you :)

    @ Moiterei - cheers! Civvies are always useful for randomly blocking LoS and generally making things difficult :)

    @ Peter D - cheers! :)

    @ Sean - give in to the dark side - 28mm is the way you really want to go :)

    @ Ray - thanks old bean! :)

    @ Evan - cheers! :)

    @ Clint - happy to have been a bad influence :)

    @ Juan - thank you! :)

    @ Miles - I'm looking forward to finally getting a game in with my Salutesville collection. Sadly, that probably won't be for a few months :(

    @ Michael P - thanks Padre :) Cagney eh?

    @ Ian - who needs Chicago, New York or Atlantic City when you have Salutesville? :)

    @ Alex - thank you :)

    @ Millsy - cheers! There will be some more civvies as I'm sure to need a mental break from my main projects :)

    @ David L - thanks! It's definitely an unusual piece :)

    @ Loki - thanks mate! :)

    @ David B - cheers! CoBs are definitely in need for gangster gaming

  17. Lovely selection of figures for gaming there!

  18. Nice miniatures and you have done a great job painting them, Tamsin. They should be useful in many games.

  19. @ Barks - thank you! :)

    @ Jonathan - cheers! I guess they could be useful for any civvy scene from 1920-1940s

  20. The stylish ladies are lovely ..... And the green dress is my favourite!
