WW1 Flamethrowers.

Some of these guys I painted up a while ago but only recently finished off the last few.
They are from Renegade Miniature set WW1G 112.

I have been busy finishing off a few sets of figures like these recently so more to come in the next week or two.

I see that the blog has finally got to 200 followers after hanging in the 190's for ages. Thank you all very much for this. Thanks for all the comment too. I really do appreciate them.

A few years ago now I picked up a box of each of the Wargames Factory Zulus and the British infantry. I have made up most of the British and even painted a couple but don't like them that much.I thought the Zulus might be just as bad so they have been sitting around untouched! Finally, the other week I was looking for something other than WW1 to paint, came across the box of Zulus and proceeded to make some of them. There are 30 in a box , so, I have split them into a group of 18 that will be spear armed, and a group of 12 that will have rifles and muskets.
Here then are the skirmish chaps, armed with muskets and  Martini-Henry rifles, with a few mods.

The photos were taken last weekend when there was next to no sun about.

The firing figures are crap! But the guy in the centre here got a bit of surgery.

There are some powder horns on belts to be worn over the shoulder but I changed a couple of them to have the guys carrying them in their hands

The way the powder horns are meant to be positioned.

Along with the captured Martini-Henry rifle this fella has grabbed an ammo belt as well.

This guy has also grabbed an ammo belt but he is wearing his one.

All 4 stands.

A couple of weeks ago my photographer daughter Mandy told me that she was arranging a photo shoot of Zombies. Although not really into the zombie thing I thought there would be a few of you out there who would like to see the end results. Making use of some of her friends to act as the zombies, a bit of makeup and some props, and they were into it. These are just some of the photos she took. I have reduced these photos a fair bit so some of the quaility has been lost but hopefully you get the idea.
