This weeks entry was not even on the "might do" schedule at the start of the challenge, as with much of my painting I set about organising a game and then realising that I don't have enough painted figures of one type or another I get some more. The computer gets switched on and ten minutes later the required figures are ordered. These are for an upcoming refight of Jarama in March.
The figures themselves are a mix of Force of Arms and North Star. I generally use Empress Miniatures for SCW but they are not cheap and can be very expensive P and P wise so I opted for these. North Star are generally know as a figure retailer but they have a small range of 28mm SCW figures you can get platoon packs that further reduce the cost (down to £1.25 each, Empress are 1.75)
The command figures are from the old Force of Arms range which I think became Burns Miniatures and are now available from Templar Wargames and Scenery. The flag is hand painted.
This collection represents a company in our home brew rules, a command of 4 Figs with a flag and 3 platoons of 8 figs (including a LMG and Sgt) for a total of 28 Figs or 140 points plus the flag.
I have another unit of these ready to go but will probably leave them for a week or two. I have a test platoon of WW1 Highlanders for Mesopotamia on the table now along with my "signature dish" of some 1/2400 Naval. See you all soon.
