From ClintB - 28mm Two thugs (10 points)



Here today no doubt heading indirectly to court are two modern thugs they are probably Liverpool fans and as such continually disappointed! The figures are 28mm Foundry Street violence. As you can see I have altered the bases, drilling and pinning them onto resin bases. I did find the whole thing very therapeutic and the one in the jacket does look like a guy I know in real life. As such it is a YOUNGER "John the Viscous") who did act as a bouncer later in life. Funniest fight I ever saw him in was as follows. He was ejecting a drunken reveller from a pub, he had the guy in a head lock after giving him 2 in the face. The guys friend charged the length of the bar and head butted John. The guys friend quickly left. Knowing John this was a wise choice as if the guys friend would have stayed he would have gotten hurt! (That is a true story BTW)


I do believe I might have had a drink with those two chaps Clint! Nice work, but I'm only going to give them the standard 5 points each despite their threats to my person!

    2. So you'd lead me into rough bars and leave me to defend myself? Thats not reassuring!

    3. Nah Peter I would lead you to rough pubs and tell Joe (6'4" ex -boxer) to look after you! Let us hope he knows what I mean by look after you!

    1. Thanks Ian. The bases were fun to paint. I just could not put them on grass bases. Perhaps a tribute to Mrs O' Leary
