Yet More Bloody Flags

Yes indeed I am alive and well just been a wee bit tried up well things on the home front but it has meant that I have been able to get down to some painting for the first time in what seems a day and a age. But before I show off the newly painted figures I have done, they will be up tomorrow, I have completed off two standard bearers for my VBCW forces.



The first one is for my Scouts from Humberstone Leicester and I think it looks jolly effective. Now this means that my Scout Troop of Humberstone is fully ready to go into battle to attack the Duke of Rutland's forces and gain honour and proficiency badges while fighting him. Mind you equally they could actually be on the Duke's side and be fighting the Socialists of the City of Leicester so who knows.



The second one is for the Leicestershire Post Office Volunteers and I have had these fully painted for the longest time just never got around to finishing the flag. These figures are from Mutton Chop Miniatures, Paul Hick's own little company and are being sold through Empress Miniatures. These chaps are based on a well know children's television programme from the 70s and are the Boys from the Fort. Very nice figures and again I can not wait to get these field and in the fight.

And to this end I have arranged with another chap from Leicester to play some games of VBCW at a local games shop named wonderfully Gifts for Geeks. I will try and get this to be quite regular, maybe once or twice a month and will be going for a native, linked campaign in and around Leicestershire though at the moment I am not sure where.
