The civilians

Hi gents,
Monday saw the arrival of my order from Redoubt these were civilian's to pad out my towns and city's.I managed to paint 45 from Monday to Thursday and also did a bit of minor conversion heads lapels etc.
Allies arrive in the city cobblestones are printed paper.

Life around the bars goes on.

I painted 45 civilians this week.

Also converted these redoubt beggars.

Buildings by Touching History.

The women pouring was painted some time ago by the War office.

The beggars come with separate heads so the conversion was very simple.

I have tables and chairs to add to this.

Close up of the conversion Perry heads

The figures are from across the Redoubt range.

Lots of nice character in these.

This city is going to have some more real estate added next week all going well.
I am off on me hols end of next week so not sure if I will get another post in before I go, the painting continues when I am off so should be a massive amount to see on my return.
Best wishes

  9. Thanks for all the comments gents they were really easy to paint hardest part for me was trying to get the variation right for the colours.

    The beggars are converted but only in a small way heads/epalutes the main figures are hardly touched.If you are looking for them they are in the Redoubt three musketeer range!
