The Duke of Rutland's Alpine Club WIP

Here is the first four figures completed for the DoR's Alpine club. Now being a good member of the King's inner circle and all and a member of the BUF he has forged links with some Bavarians chappies to help with his cause in ridding the Socialists from Leicester and the East Midlands. The reason for these link is two fold, firstly extra help, weapons and expertise at someone elses expense and secondly as these chaps are catholics it helps in keeping Lord Quenby on his side and shows a willingness to support the Catholic coarse, politics hrmm.

These chaps or rather Burghers are Baron Von Flinkenstinchen and is personnel from Bavaria, which make up the command of the unit. Shortly these will be followed by the units specialists once I have decided how to paint them. I am hoping and aiming for them to be finished by Partizan on 2nd of June, but in truth I bet they won't be finished.

He is the Baron and the rest of the command.

Baron Von Flinkenstinchen




Sergeant Weisswurst, Veteran of the Great War and the German Civil War


Sergeant Steiner, the Baron's groundskeeper


Doctor Brezeln

    1. Gosh no conversions, Moi? These are sculpted by Paul Hicks,and are from Tsuba Miniatures which are available from Tsuba Miniatures blog and Empress Miniatures. They are Bavarian Freikorps Werdenfels but I think they would work for 60s spy fi too

  4. Valderi-valdera and a yodel-o-heeho!

    Lederhosen and knobbly knees! That'll strike fear into the Godless Socialist scum.

    Another wonderful exotic unit, PK!

  6. They look terrific and slightly sinister. They remind me of the scene in that old miniseries Winds of War where Robert Mitchum gets into German hunting tweeds and goes out on a hunt with a bunch of Nazis.

  10. You may like to know that you're being featured in this week's Weekly Top X at the House of Paincakes; I'd love it if you were to stop over on Friday and explain a thing or two about VBCW to the readers!
