15mm Modern Insurgents or Freedom Fighters and......

......well done to Katie Taylor who won Ireland's first ever Olympic gold medal, bloody proud of her!



....and now on to the insurgents/freedom fighters, figures are from Peter Pig (best 15mm faces in the business) and represent those people who cause problems for other people!

  5. Yeah but those guys are pussies. You take out the leader, and the rest run away. But congrats on hitting a gold medal guys.

    1. Approximately half of all medals won in the Olympics by the Irish are for boxing, we seem to like fighting!

  10. Our Katie is a pretty girl but oh the fierce look on her face when she raised her gloves in the air after her victory. Today it's good to be Irish. Thank you big guy.

  11. nice insurgents, we are having a sweepstake in history class, gold medals per population, the german exchange student is winning by far. She chose jamaca and is far ahead of me and great britain. the guy who chose the USA is crying his face off.

  16. WHAT Ireland got a GOLD... I demand that sport gets taken out of the Olympics immediately. WE can't be having that, it's the thin end of the wedge. (OH OK then well done Ireland).

    Good work on the minis mate. Good to see such progress.... I can only dream about such alacrity!

  21. You know.. if you keep posting these Peter Pig models up here, sooner or later I will need to pick them up! They have so much character for being so small..

    Oh and congrats to Katie.. glad she was able to beat the competition to get the gold ;)

  23. All kinds of nice all the way around!

  24. Nice figures. For some reason the leader looks like Gandhi on steroids.

  25. The General is assume with a paint brush in one hand and an AK47 in the other...Hail Franonia! The leader of the pack is saying, "Do you want a piece of me!?"

  27. Congrats to Katie and to Ireland. That's a fitting sport to win first gold in.

  28. Congratulations for your medal! I'm sure I'd feel proud too! :D

  29. If Ireland got medals for Drinking you would be sweet. Well done on both accounts anyway.

    The Troops look very fine as well Fran.

  30. great stuff, im going to see katie in bray on monday, should be a great piss up

  31. Congratulations to Kathie! I always think it is far better to be proud of an athlete then go on complaining about your nation winning too few medals!

    BTW... the pose of the insurgent leader just calls for a bullet in the middle of his chest, does it not!

  32. Another top notch paint job Fran. It must be about time though for you to get the Rejects organised and get a game with all these figs you have been cracking on with??

    And yes congrats to Katie on her win (although the Russkies are bleating that the judges were biased)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Man!, are you good with the figs.
