The Leicester Ladies Women Institute Raise a Flag and Jar

Well it has been some time since I last posted and I thought I should remedy that so here is what I have been doing.

Firstly I would like to thank Mason for these ladies and I believe they are the nurses but as you can see I have created a Banner Bearer for the Leicester and Rutland Women's Institute and crew for the MK1 WI Model Jam Jar Thrower, thanks MickA for that. I have to say that the nurses, sorry ladies have come up rather nicely and just with a change to the painting and giving a domestic look shows what can be done with them. I have used Long Tall Sally, because she is tall, for the banner bearer though the other nurse could easily be used. Simple giving her apron a floral pattern was enough to change the character of the lady and the banner is similar to the one you get from Mason.

The other nurses, sorry ladies, I have got for the domestic housewife look with headscarf, which with common in the 30s. I have given Big Bertha a nice simple floral dress with a plain pink apron and Little Bertha I have got for a plain pink dress and plain apron, needed if there are any accidents with the jars of jam, dont want to get their petty dress dirty.

I think they are come out rather nicely and well done for Mason and Blind Beggar Miniatures for doing them.

I dread to think who will come the blog with that title but hey ho. I am going to running a VBCW game at Other Partizan in Sunday 6th September, so if you are about pop over and say hi.

Have a nice day.
