RP No 53 FIW English Pioneer Work Party


A recent entry into the Analouge Painting Challenge, these boys netted me 42 points to add to my total.
The figure are made by Hallmark and sold in the UK by Magister Militum.
I've painted these fine looking fellows up as English and they'll be busy building a fort, laying a pontoon or if they've been really naughty boys...digging Latrines.
I do have some figures awaiting a lick of paint for the French, so keep an eye out they'll be arriving soon I hope??
I've named each figure for a member of the Rejects, so when or if I finally get a game going with these lot, then the lads will enjoy killing each other!!


Postie, after all he is losing his hair??

A rather skinny version of Fran and Ian.

Richard enjoys digging in the garden so does, not so Big Lee!

Smiffy and Surj ( Who's got the hardest job, carrying all the
 muck about....remember Samsat!)
All the other Rejects including me are the Officer's ordering the riff raff about!!

  1. They're great, but you may have missed a trick with a dollop of greenstuff on the tum of a couple of them! :-)

  4. This is no good leadership Ray. You could have taken at least one of the figures and given it your name. The one leaning on his shuffle (Big Lee) would have been a good one. So you could pretend that you're doing something.

    Excellent painted figures Ray!

  17. Having worn those neck stock thingies, that would be the neck item I'd take off when working in the dirt.

    1. That's the plan, but I've gotta get my finger out and sort the rules out first.

  20. Does Fran have one of you in Franonia Ray? If you battle him then he'll have to try to kill himself to win and visa versa. Now that's a game I want to see on video!!
