20mm WW2 Painted Partisans and Resistance Fighters.

I gathered these WW2 20mm figures together to represent saboteurs, resistance fighters and for behind the lines shenanigans that tie up regular troops and put a strain on lines of supply and communication...

They are a mixture of soviet partisans from Shell Hole Scenics and CP Models, dismounted soviet tank crew and cossack from Britannia Miniatures and resistance fighters from Wargames Foundry (these are more western european operations), I will add my soviet airborne as well to give a more military look to the unit.....

Ray painted and based these (has never based a figure for me before) and got points in the challenge as well for them ( there is no bleeding fecking justice at all but that's life.......). I'm happy to have them even if the painting is a bit dodgy......

  1. Love that Soviet Cossack and that old lady reaching into her purse. Gun or grenade? I noticed 2 things. 1. You've a gorilla on you banner (beautiful silverback male) and 2. Ray is kicking your arse in the contest. Paint man paint! Paint till you've got blisters on your fingers.

  11. Very nicely done, Ray!

    I like the gorilla in the header of the blog too. Is there a resemblance Angry???

    BTW Angry - I have something you need to watch. Here in the States, we have a show called 'I Get That A Lot'. Kinda 'meh' overall, but the first show of this season has Pamela Anderson working in a Victoria's Secret. Wow. Google it! (I would, but Im blocked from youtube at work)

  15. They're kinda ok? not sure of the colours used? Maybe you should have paid the poor guy more for them? He's very undervalued I hear? Did you pay extra for the basing?

    ReplyDelete
  16. my favorite is the second photo and the guy to the far right... nice work.

    ReplyDelete
  17. God I hate these guys, especially when the seem to pop out of nowhere, blocking supply lines and causing overall chaos.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Those are very nice. I like the last one with the Partisan looting the Nazi corpse.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Some suitably butch looking Ivan women folk amongst that lot :-)
    Very nice as ever

  21. A nice collection of figures and I thought the painting and basing was rather good.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I was gonna say some thing then I noticed that Retro-Zombie already said it!

    I like the hat on said statue. It makes him look like quite the tough ass. And how hes painted he looks more "real" then the others. (but maybe thats cause hes of to the side of the light)

    ReplyDelete
  23. You two make me laugh LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. I feel bad for that last chap. Doesn't look like he's going to make it. Also enjoyed the word, shenanigans. I haven't heard that work in a long time. Going to have to swipe it for a blog post.

    Just came out of the writing dungeon to let Bug go pee. Soon as she's done, it's back to work for me.

    Cheers & Boogie Boogie.

  25. Nicely done, such a color cast indeed. I'd also never trust that little old lady with her purse, prob has a bazooka in there or something.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome stuff, I too love the partisan leader in the cossack hat!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Never saw a dead action figure.

  28. I just saw your comment Angry. I've brought back some of my history books written in the 1800's and some before and am going to begin writing posts about it next week. We are currently being required to sell of State Treasures to pay our debt, I'm trying to find out which ones. This according to Noonan's plans for our economy.

  29. I love the figure carrying rocks. Only you could make rocks look good. Rocks. Really, how do you do that?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great mate. I always like the look of resistance / freedom fighter types...way more interesting than uniformed troops.
    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice job, Lurker! Search the dead guy twice...he is hiding some beer in a tin in his jacket pocket.

    ReplyDelete

    Fran - what rules are you using for your WW2 skirmish gaming?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Didn't you get the bear? He was with the Cossack! Niv-ce bunch of figures Fran!

    You asked about the book I was reading. It's not bad, only a bit strange without Jack Ryan.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Fran, I honestly wish I could paint as quickly as you do.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Those look great. It's not often we see such a colorful mix of figures.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I just had the hardest flipping time trying to comment. It's nothing on bloggers end, probably mine. All this has made me forget what I was going to say....

    ReplyDelete
  50. These are great and they remind me a lot of that film with Daniel Craig in, just cant remember the title.
