Toy soldiers, wargames and modelling madness.
Nice figures! A good work...
Hi Tim,I can almost hear the rhythmic stamping of feet and the tinkling of massed balalaikas....Very nice indeed.All the best,DC
They definitely look like they want to be there, in the thick of the action.
Nice work. They remind me of those sinister eastern European types with the shaved heads and monocles who were always chasing Tintin.
I like the look of these guys!I can hardly wait for that great "winter offencive", that willdoubtless catch King Boris and the boys napping...)
PhilThanks. They are very nice figures to start with, so there's a limit to the damage that even my painting can do!
David CrookOoh - a balalaika band? Now there's a conversion challenge!
Ross MacThey are only militia, so are probably happier letting someone else get into action first. Wait till you see the Guards Battalion.....
Mad Padre"Manic laughter...".
Don MTratvian and Forbodia have strong ethnic links and are traditional allies. I thought everyone knew that! Both are more concerned about the continuing menace of Vulgaria and the upstart expansionism of Drakonia.
Seems like a good time to mention the new power in the region. . . . . oh yes, be afraid. Be very afraid. Sabres are being rattled and soon the mighty forces of "Svenhassellstein" will be on the march. The very thought of Svenhasellstein and it's dark capital "Mump" makes even the Vulgarians feel a cold shudder run down their spines. Forbodians will simply scream like little girls.
Looking at those figures I was struck by their timeless appearance. They could be anything from late Napoleonic times to well into the 20th century, for mine. I don't know whether this was deliberate, if so, they have been cleverly done. Probably they were intended for a specific time period, but I think you will agree, upon reflection, they look very versatile!Cheers,Ion
Stephen ThomasPlastic sabres don't rattle...
Honestly, you can see why the Vulgarians are so grumpy. Beset on every side by hostile powers; wily Forbodians, hordes of Tratvians and now Svenhasselstein.
Archduke PiccoloI try to look past what figures are labelled as and think what else thay could be used for. These chaps are a classic case, clad in comfortingly nondescript uniforms so could crop up in several armies over a 100+ year period!
Martin RapierI thought that grumpiness was a natural Vulgarian trait. Anyway there aren't hordes of Tratvians. Yet...
RIGHT !!! I've been in touch with "convertafig" and ordered metal sabres for all my plastic chaps. . . . Job done.
Stephen ThomasSome people will think you're joking. Not me.
Hi Tim,I reckon they could easily double for Balkan Wars Bulgarians and the 1882 Egyptians could be used for Turks......Oh dear, I think I need to lie down....;-)All the best,DC
strong ethnic links ? you mean likethe north and south of the United States, or perhaps northern Irelandor dare I say it, anywhere in the Balkans....I don't know about your family but in mine relationship is the first phase of battle, lol
David CrookDon't start all that nonsense again!
Don MMore like Sweden and Finland or Russia and Bulgaria.
