15mm Painted Ray "Ironsides" Batista from Rayonia.....

...with armed escort.

I have painted up the main danger to Franonia and it's peaceful dictatorship and this comes from Ray and his I don't want to do anything you tell me even if it's right attitude to common sense, the figure is from Peter Pig along with his escort of bodyguards and land rover's which are also from Peter Pig....

.......now why is he called "Ironsides" and it's because of his ability to sit in a chair and never get out of it (he even pees sitting down I hear but it could just be propaganda). I have painted him with a ginger tint and you may say but Ray is not ginger or strawberry blonde and I have only one thing to say....hair dye!

Ray has painted a new Mercedes (the vain git) so not much emphasis on this one as I will post his new one soon with personalised number plate (his work)....






This is what will happen when he comes up against the big dog......

  3. I'm really surprised and disappointed!

    The berets should be raspberry, as in the Prince song, their regimental march.

    Looking good though and I approve of the ginger wannabee look.

  11. Ray really shouldn't have left it to you to paint him.

  12. Poor Ray. He's gonna need some serious firepower to take on what you've been posting so far. Great minis. Very thoughtful of you to provide a casualty figure. :)

  17. Oh dear, me thinks that there may be a spot of tension on the borders of Franonia! They do look a troublesome bunch, but great work nonetheless.

  18. I'm really enjoying watching this project develop. Great stuff.

  19. Is there a bucket beneath his seat at least? That get rather nasty. He's all gruff looking though, nice!

  24. Great work - you've obviously too much time on your hands... ;)

  25. Great work. That last photo and caption make a very effective taunt. Rayonia will have to take action and give you the war you want -- and it'll all look like their fault (mwahahaha!).

  26. Whoa!...It's on!!!!!!!!! "Want a piece of me, now!?" Ideologies are starting to boil in the Lands of 'Nonia!

  27. Is it wrong that I want to sing Rayonia like they do in the Covonia ad?

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a conclusion! I love it!

  29. This may be my favorite personality to enter the fray!

  30. Mercedes is awesome and fun facts is funny about rayonia. God girlfriend is lucky, if he pees sitting down. I have 3:1 male:female ratio in our house, I know.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like the detail on his murdered corpse. And also, I liked saying that sentence. So much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Franonia, Rayonia, Covonia, must I build my own Peteronia army now? And strawberry blonde isn't that pink?

    Great painted figures and cars!

    ReplyDelete
  38. So the gauntlet is put down. Nice work on these the beard is rather erm striking for strawberry blonde

    ReplyDelete
  39. Look at the pair of you, playing like two overgrown boys. Just between the two of us, I don't think old "Ironsides" stands a snowballs chance in hell of beating you, you big Irishman.

  41. Some great looking stuff their, don't know how it'll hold up to that firepower you were showing in earlier posts though.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Be careful, Fran. This chap appears to be very dangerous...

    Very nice models; your project is very interesting.

    Best regards.

  43. I like the sixth photo. Looks so real.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hilarious. So fun to have a mini rivalry on the table.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That is some cool armed escort

    ReplyDelete
  46. LoL! Loved the last photo Fran. Think we need to see these 2 mighty adverseries lining up against each other and winner takes all!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wonder what the strategy will be to take down Franonia... hmmm

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like the soldiers in this one.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love the red berets - which match the red beard. Fashionists Franconians!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love the little war you two have... Remember when paul made that U.P. Urainus rocket and fired it at his neighbours... You two will start that any day now I can see it.

    oh and you can argue and reply on my post as too who will do that fist... Who will be the one who gets u.p. urainus first
    :-D
    please tell me you know that story

  51. He looks like a dangerous cove. Anyone with a beard big enough to hide a badger in is not to be trusted.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Reminds me of the time when i used to play these types of role plays. But i was more interested in the art that goes along with it.I used to go to the White Dwarf shop, draw posters for them.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Brilliant!

    If this is just the bodyguard..... Where is his army? Does he have any tanks at his disposal?

    ReplyDelete
  54. A cave near St Petersburg, to be exactly Fran :-D
