New Flags for VBCW

Here are some examples of the Albertine flags Militia for VBCW I have created for Si at Solway. These are carrying on from the Scottish Albertine flags in the same design and vain.

Holmes and Watson

I have just finished these fellows named London Super Sleuths, Sheer Luck Basil and Bruce from the talented sculptor Paul Hick at Mutton Chop Miniatures. They are based on the best Holmes and Watson, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. The likeness is quite remarkable.

I think I was using them for detectives in my VBCW police unit.

The last fellow is finsihed

I have finished the last of the illustrations for The Peoples Armies, now this is the title, and I am rather pleased with him. I have to say it has bring a pleasure illustrating this book and now I hope the next book is to the same high standard. This cahp is from the Sheffield "Steel" Brigade of the PAC and is armed and equipped in the very latest, modern equipment but still wears him civies. I rather like the Fair Isle Jumper and I hope you do.

New Wallpaper Designs

Hi there here is the latest in the range of free wallpaper to support the release of produces from Solway Crafts and Miniatures. This time to support the release of 1938, A Very British Civil War; A Guide to Tanks and Military Vehicles by Simon Douglas, illustrations by me, I have designed so more Wallpaper backgrounds for your computer in three different sizes. Feel free to download them and use them thanks.

Royal Navy Shore Rigging

Here is the completed illustration of the Royal Navy sailor in shore rigging. He has changed a bit for the orginial sketch, which looked a little Russian for even French but not Royal Navy. So I changed the uniform and equipment but kepted the flag.

The final sketch for the People's Army

Here is the final sketch for Paul's book "The People's Army". This time he is a member of the "Steel Brigade" and is equipped in the latest equipment. I think this is rather nice pose and some what captures the feel of the average worker. So here he is.

Peoples' Assault Column Member Completed

He is the next finished illustration for the People's Army book. He has a more "regular army" feel to him as he is from one of the core units making up the PAC.

The Last of the Windy Chaps

I have at long last finished Moley from Mutton Chop Miniatures leaving me to start on Holmes and Watson or not Holmes and Watson. Back to Moley I am rather happy with the way he has turned out. The scarf is a little joke as it is a Villa scarf.

More Windy Fellows

After finished 24 Scotish Militia flags for Simon at Solway I have decided to have a evening painting. So I have turned to Badger and he has become the third of Mutton Chop's windy chaps to be completed. Its a pity that the grey to black hair and tache has not really come that well out in the photos.

The Young Communists Party Member Completed

I have had this fellow completed for a few days now and I have only just realised that I have not got the chap on my blog. So to amend this here is the finished YCP member and I have to say I am rather happy with the finish on this one. Next or some more military types to do.
