RP No 69 Japanese Machine Gun Teams RJW



Yes I know, more of Posties figures for the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05. He bought far too many of them and got me to paint them all, why you ask....how the hell do I know I answer!!!!!!
These were entered into the Analouge Painting Challenge in mid March along with the Russian machine guns, which I'll post another day. All the figures are from Irregular, once again they're not the best figures out there today, but once they've had a lick of paint, they look the bizz. I still wish Postie would have let me ink these figures just to give them a little depth, which I think is badly needed, but there you go!!! I've still got a back log of figures to post from the Challenge and will fit them in as and when....Cheers!!!!

  1. So many periods, so little time. Irregular Miniatures have a charm of their own and I have used them to build and fill out a couple of armies over the years.

  2. Nice models, but agreed that they could use some ink to give it some shading.. still nice though :)

  3. My imagination is an interesting place. I saw them all blowing up larger holes up their own behinds. I probably shouldn't be awake right now.

  4. They look good. Inked for depth and they would look even better. Ink and be damned I say. If he then doesn't like them he can paint them... (I'm in that kinda mood today).

  16. Its so nice to see troops from the Russo-Japanese War and these are lovely. I agree with you they do need a coat of ink on them.

  18. More of them, Ray? You have done a great painting work. This period is very interesting, I expect to see battle with these nice models.

  19. Is Postie planning to refight the RJW on a 1 to 1 scale??? Impressive firepower (and quite scary if I was a Russian Infantryman facing them)

  22. You're right Ray, they could have used some inking. These are lovely but a little shading would have been nice too.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ray, you paint like a Demon. And you work full time too! Really nice work as always. I agree about the inking though.
