My CONGO/DA/COLONIAL Thread
« on: October 26, 2016, 02:35:52 AM »
Finally got some painting done possibly for Congo or some other skirmish game.

First up a trio of explorers, Monsieur Lacroix and his assistants, the brothers LeBonn.

Next up famed (but down on his luck) reporter and sketch artist Archimedes Stolt (currently in the midst of repainting).

If not allowed apologies for the thread necromancy, got back into the painting groove and got a light box so painting up or rephotographing old efforts.

First up some pistol armed gentlemen, will probably use the Burton mini as a reporter and the rest as part of an adventurer group for my eventual white men Congo expedition.

Next up a possible npc and two soldiers that first appeared in my DA thread.

And finally an Indian Mutiny officer,

The Threadomancy is fine. It's your thread. Some people like to make long threads of everything they've ever painted, while others start a new thread for each little thing they do. Either is fine by me. Or something in between. It don't matter.

I'm not really up on my Indian Mutiny figures. Who makes that one? I rather like him.



Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

Iron duke miniatures (http://www.irondukeminiatures.co.uk/miniatures-gallery)

I don't really collect Mutiny stuff that much but felt I had to buy this fellow and his chums considering that I had asked/suggested doing a pack of officers in more civilian outfits back when Mike was asking about what people wanted to see.

Currently have the other 'casual' dressed fellow on the desk for painting (the other two in the pack are in uniform).

I quite like using Mutiny officer figures as 1850s/1860s explorers. To go with the Foundry Burton (I have the same one as you, slightly converted) I have a Speke who I pinched from the old Foundry Mutiny range.

I don't think they ever actually wore British Army uniforms while exploring, but Speke and others do in the movie The Mountains of the Moon and it's a good look. Usually I'm a bit of a stickler, but in this case I was prepared to let the cool factor triumph over history.

Had the same thought myself, this set below plus a couple of packs of sepoys and the badmashes which are in the pipeline and you have the guts of a historically accurate expedition.

Also this surgeon from pic 2 from an upcoming pack.

I love that quartermaster, and the camel driver on the right would make a great Baluchi for East Africa. I might have to get myself that pack.
