Just found some more figures I painted at the beginning of the year.

They are the two white renegades Yuri and Sergei Ramanov both mounted and dismounted.

Followed by Lord Peter Bromhead British attache to the Back of Beyond. He has a rolling brief and gets into many scrapes. An expert shot but is he popular?

Old Glory figures from the Hunting Party packs in the cowboy wars range adapted for the great game in the Back of Beyond.

Found these very hard to paint but generally happy.

New Don Cossacks

Lost in round 4 3 to 2 ratio but was up against 'the' Steve Dean so was well impressed with the ratio and number of votes.

Round 5 is cavalry and so I painted up some Don Cossacks to complete the unit started earlier this year. The flag is an Army of the Free Don flag.

McGinty's Marauders

Well Round 3 is over and I was heavily beaten, so round 4 is some Pulp US Marines in Montana hats.

I think I've improved on round 3 so hopefully I will do a bit better.

McGinty is a maverick commander, his Marines are the best of the best.

They always get the job done no matter what.

They are in the region looking after some American Archeologists or so they seem.

But they arrived in the region shortly after Blucher and Scharndorff...

Murgen, Belker and thugs

Round 3 entry for the LPL3 currently getting well beaten.

Otto Murgen , Hans Belker (left with sabre) and thugs.

Murgen (centre) is a mysterious man, high up in the German military hierarchy. What does he do and why is he in the Egyptian desert.?

Hans Belker (far right) is a Great war veteran with generally a peaceful nature and an interest in archaeology and Egyptology what has he found that interests Murgen?

Pre Second World War games involving these guys could be on the horizon.

Belker has an English friend, Professor Henry Allenby, he will come later, but they are doomed to oppose eachother as war fast approaches................

Von Blucher's Zeppelin Troopen

So round 2 is up and running.

My round 2 entry is Von Bluchers's Zeppelin Troopen. Lets hope I have some success with them. This photo is, unfortunately, better than the one I entered.

Von Blucher is a Prussian Count with an adventurous nature, he has raised a military expedition to Asia to fight against Bolshevism. He has persuaded his old sargeant Sharndorff to come with him with the promise of untold wealth and adventure............
