Decided to go with the people at Eureka since they should know Australians



Did a head swap on one and converted an Owen gun to a Bren.

I could really use some more lightly equipped soldiers throwing grenades.  Also maybe a class on how to sculpt bare feet out of boots.

A quick test so that I can maybe hand off some of these Australians to my nephew with some instructions on how to paint.



I kind of like the buff with a bit of Khacki that I put on his shirt  over the Iraqi Sand that I used on his trousers.  In both cases I used a diluted sepia wash from Reaper.

Very nice but it can't be easy to aim that gun with the magazine right in your line of sight!

OK, looking more at Gideon Force, Mission 101 or whatever you want to call it, I'm going to need some Sudanese from the Frontier Battalion. 

Dolled up for inspection.

Not as pretty but still on parade.


I'll have to look through some books for some more pics.


As far as I know, no one makes WW2 era Sudanese but Warlord just put out plastic 8th army with Indian heads. The Sikh beards are a bit much but I think we can work with the other turbans.   Sadly, they somehow didn't put on a grenade throwing arm and Gideon Force was all about sneaking up at night and throwing grenades into Italian positions.
This is what I have so far

Warlord's new plastics have most of the weapons and arms cast together.  That's much easier but doesn't make for a lot of ways to pose grenade throwers.  Also need to work out a relatively easy way to convert them to puttees.

Hmmmm. Undecided

Short of using a burr to take away the 'top layer' on the upper part of the boots......putting on a thinnish skin of green stuff over the 'burred', area and then detailing it with a few 'lines', nothing instantly springs to mind, Cookie.

Could be a mind numbing task if you've got lots to do.

An attempt to paint on puttees after carving away the more prominent buts of sock.
