Goin' to Texas.....

......,Unfortunately too late for a couple of  free thought conventions in Austin and Huston and too soon for the yearly Alamo festivities.  I'll take some photos of the Alamo and post them. 

Here's a few 28mm figures I just got and will be painting. The latest Hinterland female trench raiders......

Eureka's Girl on a Penny Farthing. I bought two...

I'll be back....

I added some more LEMAX figures to the cast.

Two school girls....

Peasants or refugees or peasant refugees.

The local artist and an art collector.

A candle packer and another house keeper.

More to come. I'm try to paint most of the LEMAX figures I've collected and used in my stories.

Back when North Africa was sexy.

Covers from La Vie En Culotte Rouge. 1902 to 1912. French colonial troops found the locals sexy and vice versa.

Barzso Minutemen just "hangin' out."

These are from the loose figure bins at The Hobby Bunker, camp figures from the Barzso Valley Forge play set. I painted them as Massachusetts men outside a tavern. The figure in green one the right has a spare Imrey/Risley head.

More Replicant US Marines

I just finished the remaining figures from the Replicant series of US Marines from the American Civil War. These are the advancing figures plus the officer added to the firing figures.

 The advancing man below is a good pose and wears the President Lincoln chin beard.

 The figure below is a bit rough and scrunched over. He wears the Judson Kilpatrick whiskers.

 Genl' Judson Kilpatrick ....

 The officer is pretty good and has the correct US Marine braid epaulettes....

21 figures good for a small raid on the Confederate coastline.
