|Mixed in with a few armed and unarmed civilians, we'll have a riot|
I've made these figures up from various plastics that I have, namely the Wargmes Factory Surviours (men) and the WF male zombies, though there is a single head from the female vixen's sprue (the girl).
It will be noticeable no doubt that there are no women in the ranks of this protest, but if I ever come across a sprue of the female survivouors, I will no doubt add to the masses.

So in batches of three, here's a few close-ups as I know you'll be more interested in reading the signs than looking at my painting efforts.
Just in case you can't read the sign on the right it says "LEGALIZE MARIJUANA. Quickly before they search my Fanny pack!"
|Obligatory boring rear view.|
|Winken, Blinken and Nod (solicitors)|
The right hand sign has the word "I'd" covered by the central sign making it read "I'd make my car...etc."
|Rear view (obviously)|
|Two and a half men (not soliciting)|
The signs themselves were all taken from the actual protests on the Interweb and photoshopped to a usable size.
They were glued onto some thin card and the back were given a quick wash of paint in an attempt to mask the card.
|The 'boy' has a head from the vixens box !|
|Chico, Harpo and Groucho|
The rough looking 2 x 2s for the signs were filed down matchsticks (into a rough paddle shape for easy of gluing the sign onto).
They were cut to size after the signs were allocated to them.
|No coffee stirrers were used in this production|
|Hank, Bruce and Brian|
Gluing the wood matchsticks to the plastic figures was a real pain, as was finding sufficient left or right hands that didn't already have weapon in them.
As these were plastic figures I cut my own very thin plastic bases for them, for ease of gluing, rather than the normal washers I use.
|Note the "lack of detail" painting technique I used|
That's it for this week, as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated, but as I'm away on holiday for a few days responses to any comments may be delayed until I find internet access.
