Masked Warriors

One of sculpts I have a single figure of.
My "Jimland" project is now that little bit nearer to finishing with my completion of the two packs of Old Glory masked natives that I'd bought recently. They are as complete as they're ever going to be, following my principle of "that'll do", save for varnishing as I still haven't decided whether to varnish them in gloss, matt or a combination of the two.
At ten figures to a pack for £13 they're very good value for money,; I bought two packs (Nos. 1 and 3 iirc).The packs contain a random assortment of figures and each pack had different styles of shield too, which makes for a bit more versatility when putting them together as the shield come separately.
As an added bonus, there was little to no flash on the figures which made the cleaning up process a lot easier.
To give even more variation I did  manage to bend a few limbs around and  the front-heavy running types had their pose curtailed  too.
Here's the results:

Another 'single'
Identical sculpts, different shields.
Running guys, apt to fall forwards
Not sure if these two are identical, .but nice dynamic poses imo
Yet another two runners (Bored yet ?)
"Why the long face ?"
Nearly finished
"I said blow the bloody doors off" - oops wrong film.
Even I'm bored now
The ubiquitous, even obligatory group shot..
As well as finishing off this little lot, I'm still working on my terrain boards (which currently consists of slapping paint on in different ways to see how they look) and the last batch of jungle pieces has been all but finished too!

Sp that's it for this week, thanks for taking the time to visit, I hope you've something of interest and have managed to stay awake; as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.

  1. Red is clearly a Powerful colour in their ethos. They look suitably scary. Have a look at the EMP Pineapple people as well is you want diminutive versions!

    Overall Jimland seems to be a place I will not be holidaying in! Nice one mate.

    1. Thanks Clint, from what I gather, reds, lack, yellow and white are prominent colours in Tribal African culture.
      I have seen the Emp pineapple guys too and did wonder if they would fit in with my pygmies, but I should resist their attraction as I have far too many pygmies as it is.
      Himland can be dangerous but there are photo oppotunity too!

    1. Thanks Michal there are no individual's colours as I preferred them looking a bit uniform and it made a sight easier to paint too!

    1. Thanks Blaxx, it was well worth the effort (and pain) I went through to get them finished. I;m very pleased how effective the colour scheme is too.

  8. Excellent paint job on a great bunch of minis sir! They're definitely going to look the biz when they get in amongst your jungle foliage!!
    Just be sure to tell your intrepid photographer NOT to say "smile" when he meets them ;-)

    1. Thanks WA, I'm sure they'd not appreciate bare teeth, whether in the jungles of Jimland or by grinning pirates in the Caribbean.
