Police Constables with Capes Wargames Foundry VC010

Recommended Posts

It has been over a year since I painted anything. When I sat back down to paint again, I realized I could not see the details. Weird. Then my wife suggested I try her reading glasses. Aaagh!


Here are some police constables with capes from Wargames Foundry VC010. This is my first effort since I started wearing glasses while painting.

Not bad work. I too wear Glasses and have had difficulty in the past with the painting of Little People. That is until I mentioned my Hobby to one of the Assistants at my Eye Doctor's Office and she asked about getting Magnifying Glasses in my Prescription since they had a deal where you got 50% off a second Pair of Glasses! They have been AMAZING Help! Check and see if you can get some from you Eye Doctor.

They look suitable for encountering pirates.


I found it a relief to discover I needed reading glasses, five years ago when I rediscovered the hobby. Turns out it was just as much fun as I remembered, once I could see all those lovely little details.

      The dwarf is an Eureka 15mm figure (maybe 18mm, can't remember right now). I brought him with other 15mm figures to see if they would fit as brownies, gnomes or dwarves. He fits all of the roles, so now I know where to get some small folk. I actually enjoyed painting him and the 15mm landsknechts (didn't photograph them) a lot more than I expected.
      The monk is an old Grenadier Figure, I think you can get him at Mirliton now. I speed painted him using a Zorn Pallet. It works well for anyone who is somber or drab, it can also work well for NMM.
      The figures on both sides are from Ground Zero Games, i think they are from the goth set. They can work as cultists, lords or even vampires. 
      The maid and the butler are from Wargames Foundry. I really like the sets. The rest is still being painted. With the maid I experimented in painting an impression of some lace or embroidery on her pink skirt. I tried to make the cup she holds look like bone china.

      This picture is closer to the real colour than the one above (thought it is still not perfect, with the monks robes not being as distinct in sections as they are)

      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

        I failed at painting this so it would not look like some kind of indentured servant...

      Will tote bales for food and lodging,

      I like him more as as snake oil salesman...

      In my usual flighty way I never stay on one project for long, so fantasy is on the back burner and I'm painting up a few historical figures that have been knocking around in my cupboards since forever.
      The Lancaster gun was a very, very early attempt to make rifled artillery. It was like earlier smooth-bore muzzle loaded guns, but the bore was re-heated and given an oval cross-section as the barrel was manufactured. This made the cannon-ball spin a bit as it was launched and (hopefully) got it a bit closer to its intended target.
      The design was soon superseded, but a couple were sent out to the British Army in the Crimea and were used in the Battle of Inkerman.
