The Women's Institute, Belvoir Section

Now I bet thats a title you dont see very often in connection to wargaming. Well I have finished off the Women's Institute section of my Duke of Rutland's forces and I am rather pleased with them. The figures of mostly from Mason's Blind Beggar Miniatures, the Armed Housewives set and the Lady Baxterville and her 'Family' set, plus a couple of addition figures. Firstly I would like to publicly thank Mason for producing these figures as one, no-one does women is civilian clothing and two they are damn nice sculpts and paint up a dream.

Now back to the WI section. With have a full section of ten ladies with LMG support and I have painted them out to have a fair representation of ladies from all walks of life and classes. Added to the section is a Jam Jar Thrower Mk1 (WI model) as support, God knows what the rules are going to be, but I thought is would be a suitable support team for the ladies.

The sharp eyed amongst you might notice a iron lady with a handbag, she is from Reiver Castings and she is the commander of the Jam Jar Thrower and also That Women who is Duke of Rutland's wife, Lady Tredgast Strapleton-Mallet, doing her bit for the King's cause.

Have a nice day
