15mm Rayonian Bodyguard Infantry "The Ironsides".

With their infamous red berets "The Ironsides" protect their upstart warlord from assassination within and without his cartel, well paid and well motivated they are the last line of defence for Rayonia!

Their nickname comes from their leaders inability to get out of a chair too often!

Peter Pig figures......

  4. Nice looking praetorian Guard. Money can not buy you everything however and those red berets can attract unwelcome attention.

    Great painting style.

  9. You need a tough strong defence, but your last line of defence should have a last line of defence. Just in case.

  16. Hmm, they look menacing... Ray must be late in their month's wage I suppose

  17. Nah! Ray's not pretty enough to be Ironside.

  18. Great looking minis, they must be tough soldiers if they choose to fight wearing a red cravat. ;)

  23. Everyone needs a private bodyguard or two. Not sure which one Ray needs more to protect from Franonia or from his own people!

  24. Nice...Home Guard/Bodyguard! But with red berets as targets for Seals...well, I'm not too sure that...

    ReplyDelete
  25. A very red berets unit. Milita for sure...

    Very nice models, Fran.

  26. I could use a heavy or two myself.

  30. This is inspiring stuff. Makes me want to go out and buy troops for Badmenistan.

  31. Nice looking troops their, an actual professional unit for Rayonia.

    Surely he just needs to be like the old tv ironside, get a wheelchair, a couple of skivvies, and a van to be driven around in. Then he can get even more painting done.

  32. These pictures made me remember those little toy soldiers I had as a child.

    ReplyDelete
  33. More great work as always. Ain't it the truth that red berets make troops elite! Best, Dean

  34. I think you could turn one of these lads easily enough Angry. A bodacious beauty, a bottle of scotch and old Ironsides will be waking up in Hell.

  35. These are a characterful set you have there but where is the bible, or other religious, political book, in their hands to punish people with?

    ReplyDelete
  36. More great work. Will be difficult to choose which site to follow Franonia or Rayonia.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sweet work, simple story. Cool!

  38. Great looking figures and paintwork

  39. Nice idea to give them Red Berets. Makes them nice and easy to spot at a distance with your snipers!!

    Great figs once again Fran!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nice work, those look like a bunch of real tough mofos.

  41. The red hats are awesome

    ReplyDelete
  42. The Rayonian Bodyguard Infantry look well armed. In the second picture, that guy seems to be raising his fist and calling someone an asshole.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like the fact that instead of wearing helmets, they wear red berets instead.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Poppies on the field...they are everywhere like in Monet's painting!
    Great work Sir Fran! :-)
