    Below is all the figuires i have in progress at the moment... sadly i have been travelling a lot for work over the last year and have ended stuck in various hotel rooms with not much to do, so i thought i would be a bright idea to start assembling some of the figures in my stash...

    Yup - i do indeed like my Commonwealth figures...

    The unstructured aim is to try and paint figures from all ages and stages of the British Army, with a special focus on Scottish Regiments (and the Black Watch) and the Military Police (my old man) in particular... with a few Romans, medieval figures and others that grab the attention thrown in for good measure...

    The more modern ones are an attempt to capture my time spent humping heavy stuff around the countryside for queen and country;)

    a bit of progress on a few of the parade!
    Para NI - this is a Firing Line figure. Hardly any clean up required and will make a nice display once comleted and the base pulled together. (fiting line supply an etched wall section and pavement for him to lean on).

    Heh it's weird how the mind plays tricks looking at the Falklands Para I thought bloody hell I don't remember wearing puttees in the Falklands, I dug through some photos and there isn't one that shows my feet! I'm thinking I may have worn my N.I. boots, but I seem to recall they would fall apart in the country being designed for urban stuff. Anybody else recall what we had ? Cracking figures they'll keep you out of mischief

    Hi Helm,

    Ah puttees - hours of endless winding... what horrible memories you have brought back. I had forgotten about the NI boots - utterly crap for anything other than padding the streets...and even then they weren't all that good.

    Have seen a fair few pics of Paras, Marines and others wearing puttees, but i also have it on good authority from a few old sweats who were there that they tended to either wear their own boots (privately purchased) or would "borrow" / swap boots with the argentinians whom they took prisoner - the argentians had better boots (no surprise there) - but happy to be corrected by someone who was actually there.

    Hi James
    Oh we definately borrowed/looted stuff like boots. The Argies had cracking boots not surprising as you say but I'm buggered if I can remember what I had on my feet, it might even have been Doc Martins I know back then they were still good boots not the tatt they churn out now. I'm sure the haze of time and alcohol abuse :ROFLMAO: will clear at some point.

    Cheers

    Great to look through your stash, I thought I was the only one who had so much "waiting for paint". Super collection and you are doing a lot of good work there!
    Who makes the figure of the WW 2 Black Watch ( other regiments are available) in the first photo.
