15mm Painted Khurasan Miniatures Redneck Welcoming Committee......

.......Wikipedia has an explanation for the term redneck in the US but in the Ireland a redneck was somebody who lived outside of Dublin whose Dad slapped them on the back of the neck and told them to go to Dublin and get a job!

These six figures are from Khurasan Miniatures Planet 15 range (there should be 7 but at the time I couldn't remember where I put the seventh but as I type this I remember where I put it!)

Not the greatest of sculpts but full of character all the same, they will have a second set out soon I believe....





It's a bright, way too early Sunday morning here at work and Ray is a sandwich short of a picnic....it's how I feel

  1. I didn't know Ireland had it's own rednecks. I think I prefer their background to US ones. Though these guys are clearly US ones, and sure don't look very welcoming.
