15mm Painted Peter Pig US Marine EOD Team.

The Hurt Locker was on again last night and while it's a very watchable movie it wasn't a six oscar movie, this is my EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) team for my marine platoon for Franonia, the pictures aren't great but they're not bad up close........I hate taking pictures!

  1. Looks good, I am with you, I hate taking pictures as well! I actually started practicing with my camera taking mini pics as I am horrible at photography.

    Cheers

  6. I think you did just fine with the pics...but after taking pictures of food and dealing with the stupid lighting, I totally understand! And I love the little unit!

  7. I like the last two pics best, how the hell did you get them to look so realistic??

  8. There is nothing worst than trying to get the macro setting on your camera to focus on the figure you want. Good luck with that. Saying that you have managed to produce some nice miniatures.

  9. Very nice unit, Fran. Probably it is going to have a lot of work in Franonia...

  10. Looking very good TAL, I have always loved those 15mm USMC from Peter Pig, such good sculpts.

  11. Maybe you should send them after the folks who gave Hurt Locker so many Oscars.

  12. These are so good! Now all I need to do is read a book on the subject, find a manuafacturer that does them in 28mm and I can get some myself! (Victorian Warfare - pah!)

  13. Great figs. I somehow missed your earlier post about your Franonia imagi-nation. Very cool idea!

  15. Really nicely done there, Angry. I loved the Hurt Locker - Jeremy Renner is one of my favorite actors.

    Hey, are you going to Salute this year?

  16. Would it be inappropriate to say those are the bomb?

  18. Good job on those. The forces of Franonia continue to grow.

  19. Nice work. And I didn't think The Hurt Locker was worthy of that many Oscars either. Not even Best Picture.

  20. Your little bomb disposal guy has quite a strut to him. lol.

  21. heh i thought that brown one was a sniper

  22. Very nice Fran and it seems you have closed the gap up quite a bit between on Ray which at the moment is where the real competition is at since Kent decided to hop in painting rocket ship and leave everyone in a distant rear view mirror!

  24. Great lookin' Pigs, Sir! Remember: "the bangs the thang!"

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nice job! Nothing wrong with the photos! I'm no photographer either so I wouldn't know a bad pic if I seen one!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've never seen the Hurt Locker but I've seen a lot of Marines.

  27. Very nice painted figures Fran!

    If you want to lose some kilo's, just wear such a suite. It's no fun wearing it in real life! ;-)

  28. I don't know if I'd want the name "Peter Pig," but if it meant I could dress up like that, I might consider it. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  29. you know I really liked Hurt Locker also but dont think it was AMAZING. I remember just wanting it to beat Avatar.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Not a 6 Oscar movie. Agreed. And nice set, it was fun to see them set up like the screens!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the Pig, hate The Hurt Locker... ;)

  32. Hurt locker I thought was a good film tbh. Cracking job on those mini's!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Nice looking figs Fran!

    I know you say you don't like taking pictures but I wouldn't mind seeing a close up of the camo that you use on the infantry

  34. Cute and perfect. True that comment about hurtlocker. Why would anyone need cowboy/loose cannon leader in their team? Shouldn't he supposed to bring them back home safe?

  35. Last 2 threw me through a loop.

  36. I liked Hurt Locker but yeah a little over rated... you need a good macro lens for your pics - saying that they always show off your great work

  37. I love Warhammer 40k. It's so awesoem to assemble and paint your own army :)

  38. It's 59 F here, sunny and I'm off to muck about in the yard. Have a nice weekend Angry. I'll see you Monday.

  39. Another good group. Your pictures are always better than mine.

  40. You must have some talent and patience, those figures are amazing. I'm very impressed--if I was making something that tiny, I probably wouldn't get that far without hurling everything through a window or destroying it all with a flamethrower.... (I'm not very good with small fiddly things)
    :D
