Don's North West Frontier
« on: March 10, 2018, 09:14:10 AM »
Okay, after recovering my account thanx to the very helpful people behind the scenes, I want to share some of my NWF adventures with you.
I realized after playing Björns cool game at Tactica that I had to do something colonial again.

I first toyed with the idea to get myself some French Foreign Legion minis...but then again I remembered I had some painted afghans from the perrys laying around.
Just wanting to start something fairly small I just bought a box  of Perry plastic sudan/afghanistan Infantry....:)

So I just glued away and started to paint some khaki on the first minis.

Here is day 1.





And these are the minis I painted last year...and then got distrcted....;)




Cheers,
Don

Thanx, Mr. Oshiro.....;)

Okay, in day 2 I started to use some super glue and greenstuff.
I wanted to do some Indian troops and found some WWII sikh metal heads in the leadpile. I know these are rather not correct, but I take a more cineastic aproach...so turban is erm turban....;)




And i oainted a colour party. These will acompany the Lt. as a 3 or 4 man team.





Cheers,
Don

Thank you gentlemen....;)

After paniting a few more Brits for the HWF...




 I thought of some terrain...

Luckily some bad folks cut a lot of trees behind my flat. So I took up some of the spare parts of the trees....:)
And dryed them on the heater.







To get them flat on the tabletop I put some filler under neath.








And here with some grey paint on them.







...and with the next batch of afghans (this time Foundry). And an additional gun crew...:)





Cheers,
Don

On day 5 I wanted some more terrain. This time a pathan watch tower.
Not as eleborate as the one from the great Jimbibbly, but more sketchy.....:)





And I had this stupid idea to get some scotts in my NWF....:)

I decided to use some Victrix spare parts wich I had laying around for a few years.....:)
Just the tropical hats on them and fo it goes....





At thsi time the project was 5 days old. My benchmark was to get something playable in one week....
...even for me quite a task.... lol o_o ;D

Cheers,
Don

Thanx gents....:)

Here is what I made on day 6.

First of, I builded a small hamlet. Just to get the afghans some cover....;)
Again pretty sketchy and done in a few hours. But I had only one day left in my weeks project.






Even managed to get some paint on the watchtower....;)







And nearly finished the Victrix scratchbuild scots.








Cheers,
Don
