Looking good!! Quite interested in the "Back of Beyond" stuff but I have so many other projects I couldn't possibly start another one..... Your painting is top notch, really got the best of those lovely figures. :)

Well it took more than a few days to finish them off and take a few photos.  ::)









Struggling a bit with changing ambient light conditions, but the photos generally came out OK.
I should be posting my 3rd unit by now, but was delayed with real world events in the latter part of September.  Need to crack on with it now.  :)

Excellent work! Is the fellow with the goggles/glasses up on his peaked hat a conversion? I have never seen that before.

Thanks for the kind comments.  Got a little bit more done on the next batch today.

He isn't Lon, so I've checked on the reference pics I have collected and can't find any with goggles.  I hadn't noticed that before.  He was in a batch of miniatures I bought second-hand, but he is undoubtedly one of the many variations on the few dolls used by Mark C.  Maybe that one is no longer in the mould?

Thanks, makes sense to me. Like you, I have bought most of my Chinese second hand and have just never ran across that fellow. I will be on the lookout in the future. By the way, I just noticed that you varied the blanket roll colors, nice touch.

Great looking unit!

Regarding variations- my understanding (and I may well be wrong) is that Copplestone sells ten man units, but in some cases there are more than ten variants and they were semi-randomly selected. So, when purchasing a ten pack you might not get all the variants.

Well I didn't complete my 'Army' in the intended period, but it will happen eventually.

Here are a couple of extra miniatures that I recently painted for the Back of Beyond Painting Club:

Major General Francis Arthur "One-Arm" Sutton M.C. & Morris Abraham "Two-Gun" Cohen
              

The rest will follow eventually, possibly some as part of LPL11.
