RP No141 Old Glory Taliban Insugents



A couple of months ago I can't remember why?? I agreed to paint up these Old Glory Taliban Insurgents for my former work pal Francis Ignatius Lee. aka The Angry Licker. He's been moaning like a biatch at why I haven't painted them yet, like he's gonna use them????
So I finally caved in and got the brush out, these are the first figures (apart from the recent buildings) I've painted since early June, I can't say I enjoyed painting the little buggers but it was great actually painting again. I did paint some other Taliban figures for his highness back in July last year, here . HRH was supposed to leave a few of the figures in the box with the unpainted ones so I could try and match them in, but of course he didn't, so after a quick search on his blog, adding more unnecessary bloody hits to the Lickers blog, I found the figures and had to match them from them, the useless Git!

The figures are from Old Glory's Fireforce 15 Irregulars and Insurgents range, I gotta admit I love the motorbikes! Unfortunately Fran wanted to base the figures himself, so before he ruins them I thought I'd post a few pics.

  8. Ray you are a good mate painting figures for Fran. The world needs more people like you.

    Nice job on them mate. If Fran does not appreciate them I can find them a home in my AK 47 Army!

  9. I'm reminded of that traditional Christmas Carol - "We three kings of Orient are, one on a scooter and two in a car". Something like that. Keep up the good work Ray! WW

    1. Yep!, its a bit to close for me, but he'll use them for generic insurgents, probably the citizens of Rayonia.

  20. These are neat little figures with loads of character. Interesting to see pack horses mixed with motorcycles and machine guns-so modern!! Nice brushwork as well!

    Now, I really must get on with some painting - it's been weeks since I picked up my brushes.

  27. They look great, Ray! Fran is getting some nice figures!
    You should see how much stuff they haul on bikes. On OPs, I've seen them packed with parcels and even a family of six balanced precariously on one with a load that would have strained a van!
