I have raced forward with painting my last three insurgents as I wanted to show those to you before I would show you that WW1 post I was talking about. I have decided to do that to finish my insurgents "sub project" and show you what I got so far. I have more things planned for moderns, but most of them are still on my way, so I will take a break from them for now. I will either paint some zombies or survivors (they really deserve to get some attention again!) or I could even FINALLY paint some of the Strange Aeons figures I bought so zealously at last year's Salute. I have realised I am losing control over all the stuff I have started this year alone and I would like to close as much WIP as possible.
Well, this post isn't about the future, it's about the insurgents. I have attached tonnes of bad photos (for which I apologize) down below. I have always been saying just about one in every two youngsters are photographers these days, alas I am not one of them.
So, what I have left to show you from 27 insurgents I've been working on in those past weeks, are two riflemen and a guy with an RPG.
Moving on from repetitive wording, below you can see all 27 insurgents grouped in four groups as per Force on Force quick start rules, that I used as a guidance for my conversions. They could use some foliage on their bases and a spray coat of an ACTUAL mat varnish (the one I am using is "mat" though), but other than that they are done. I'm quite proud, this is the largest "army" in 28mm I have painted so far.
I have also included photos of same body types grouped together, so you can see just how different they all came out. I even had some problems grouping them, so I consider conversion well done!
"Police officer" and "suit" types of guys:
Overall I have quite enjoyed working on those and I plan on getting another box if this project will stick and I'd need more. I also need more firepower, mainly some GPMGs, a heavier machinegun, like a .50 cal, a sniper and faaar down the list there are some stronger anti tank rocket systems. Maybe an AA rocket launcher or two, but that's so unnecessary they would only be used because they look cool.
I should start searching for some pickups, however - them liberators need a ride.
Well, let that be it for today.
Thanks for looking,
