From MartinC: Marilyn Chainsaw (125 points Ready to rock)

I've finished the Perry Brits, not my best work, but the cold is still lingering and I appear to be out of practice at painting 28mm, too many 10mm.


I gave these blue puttees just for variety

The one I forgot to photograph

Group shot of all the "Sudan Type" Brits. Not all painted for the challenge but 5 units of 10 men.

As a change of pace I painted this Zombie survivor from Studio Miniatures. 



Marilyn Monroe with a chainsaw in the classic dress blowing up pose. Fantastic pose but the face is not quite right.

That gives me another 24 Brits and one film icon with a chainsaw - 125points

Super stuff Martin! You are cracking on with the Pith-Headed blokes, well done (love the blue puttees - very flash)! BTW, what rules are you using for these guys? 

Yeah, I agree, the Marilyn pose is excellent, but the sculpting on the face is not there at all. Still, a very cool figure. The 'Sthill' logo is terrific. :)

125 points in the bag, Martin. Well done!

  1. If not your best work it's certainly serviceable. I also like the blue putees. A nice change of pace. The face on Marilyn is terrible but you've made a good job of it. Nice work!

  2. A Marylin Monroe with chainsaw... well that gets my vote. The Colonials also look good as well. I think we need more colonials in the AHPC.

  6. cheers Curt. I tend to use a personal tweak of IHMN, using each unit as a single character with officers having their own traits. Tried The men who would be Kings but didn't like them

  7. Great stuff all-round although Marylin's face is indeed a bit off. Oh well she can't be on her best every day now can she?

  8. Cheers, think she is supposed to be in battle rage, not quite right and my painting didn't help

  9. Very nice job on these - those blue puttee boys will be the envy of their peers ;)

  11. The Brits are very well done. I think I can die content now that I have seen MM with a chainsaw. I wouldn't have rated her as the survivor of the Zed Apoc that I'd want to team up with until now ...

  12. Cheers. She is iconic although the image of her careering through a horde of zombies, skirts flying, with an out of control chainsaw is one that will live with me for a while

  13. Nice work on the troops. The Marilyn with chainsaw is a hoot.

  14. Nice work on the lads, Martin! We seem awash with colonial troops! ;)
    I like the blue puttees for many reasons, one being an excellent way to denote troop skill, everything else is gravy! ;)

    1. thanks, I did think about a wider range of putee colours, green for the Rifles etc, but did the epaulettes instead

  18. Perfectly fine work, Martin! I think these chaps definitely look the business. Very smart - and Marilyn looks almost as deadly as in the "Seven Year Itch" ;)
