Insurgency rising - part 10

Hello guys,

moving on with painted stuff (yay!), I got a part 10 of the insurgents project to show you today.
Nothing surprisingly new here, just another three freedom fighters in variety of equipment and clothes.

I might mention at this point I feel sorry I didn't put more effort in making sure everyone is armed with an AK, but oh well...maybe with the next box :D.

Today I have a leader, an RPG gunner and a random rifleman.
I've decided to scrap the plastic hood and sculpt one covering his face. I've also added a head with sun shades and a bandana for an ultimate improvised identity protecting kit! I  wanted to go with skull motive on the bandana but I've got confused and painted it mostly black before remembering skulls are predominantly white and not black! I really like his position - he is holding a rifle in one hand and mending his radio with another. You can perhaps just notice how the strap covering radio pouch is slightly angled "because of the antennae".
This RPG gunner is the only one actually aiming the weapon and I'm quite proud of it. The scars of the complicated surgical operation can be noticed, but it's good enough for a tabletop bad boy. I've forgot to sculpt a pack of extra rockets on him, but I'm fixing that on the third gunner that is yet to be painted - so at least one will have them. Other than that, he has the hat turned backwards (an actual practice!) an the rest is nothing to really write home about.
Third guy is the coat guy. I gave him a bandana to make him at least a bit different. I think this pose is one of my least favorite because of the coat.

To keep it more interesting, I've added a couple of shots with the miniatures that share the same body. It shows how versatile this kit can be and while I could do better, I think there's quite a decent amount of variety in them so far.
Above there are two coat guys, two suit guys and three hoodie guys.
Below are two strangley standing guys, two whichever guys, two jumpsuit guys and a random fat + another guy. I might want to think about new ways to name the bodies :D.

And as usual, the all-painted-so-far shot. Putting them up three by three, I get quite impressed at how fast they grow. There is 15 painted insurgents on this photo, which means there are only 12 to go!

Lastly, I'd like to thank Clint from Anything but a One fame for the Salute 2014, random Salute and Postie's dice. Surely I can call myself half-a-reject now...or should I cover it up and hope nobody ever knows? :D

Thanks again mate!


Thanks for looking,
Mathyoo

    1. Thanks! I planned to do much more varied camo at start, but I've decided to just keep the two later on - those both seem to work quite fine :).

  3. Sorry I don't think a single dice will qualify you as a reject..... but think carefully are you sure you want to be?
    Nice Insurgents they are looking to become a force of potential hooligans!

    1. Hm...picky Southerns! I'll just "stay" a Geordie then! :D

      Thanks mate, can't really say hooligans as I've armed them strongly - but I wouldn't mind buying a set to make civilian rioters! And they need heavy weapons...ah so many choices!

  4. They're looking very good, it's quite a force you have now. The long coat guys do look a bit out of place though imo

    1. Thanks mr. Z. I do agree, but I don't think it would be worth the conversion to get rid of it.

  5. I think the one in the yellow jacket will be the first to be shot - he's quite visible :-) .

    1. No no, that's a lucky yellow hoodie. Nobody shoots at the sun. You know nothing about fashion! :D

  6. Nice work Mathyoo.
    That's quite a unit you have got together. It's amazing how fast they grow, even by three at a time. These would make a mess of a lot of zombies ;-)

    1. Thanks! I'd love to say it was hard to do it, but I quit overthinking it a while ago and I'm much more satisfied since :D
