28mm Victorian Sci-Fi Female Trench Raiders from Hinterland Miniatures ......

......and Magenta is the new red!

A unit of trench raiders for the forces of Angria, the elite of the elite, the hardest hitting and fighting unit in the region, the magenta piping is the unique colour and calling card of the female only forces.

Delicate but nice miniatures that deserved a better paint job but they'll do!

  9. great stuff Fran. but I am sure some very willing men would love to go over the top first for them. just to soak up the enemies ammunition so the girls can get over and reach the other side...

    ... where they will then kill all those who stand in their way.

  12. They're nice figures, sure enough, but not my thing I'm afraid. However, i bet they could be worked in to some colonial/VBCW scheme. Young Hicks again, so with a punt.

    :O)

  14. You did a fine job with them, Fran!

  15. Some tough-looking ladies, not to be trifled with!

  16. Damn fine painting, sir! I can't wait to see these lovelies in an AAR one day!

    ReplyDelete
  17. You did a fine job on these faces Fran and on those gas masks as well. Now you must be careful around these ladies as they are heavily armed. If one of them asks you to marry her, you'll have to think twice about saying "No"

    1. I meant to say this in my comment:

      I like the background you shot these against. The figures pop right out and your work shows up much better this way.

    2. You're right Anne, damn I need to be more careful!

  18. I think that's a fine looking paint job for those ladies Fran. Besides, tough ladies can't be too pretty!

  20. They look great, Fran. Not only the paint job, but the sculpts look good too. The guy standing without his gas mask on, as well as the guy next to him adjusting his mask are really nicely done. Best, Dean

  21. Awesome Fran, great detail on the painting. What rules do you use for these and who do they fight?

    1. They will be pitted against the Warlord and his horde, rules are a bit hazy at the moment!

  22. Great job, the one poor guy dropped his helmet

  33. I'm not a big fan of VSF (and I certainly think some cows, like the First World War should remain sacred), but they are a very nice job, young man.

  38. Top shelf work there Fran!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. They're not exactly "Babe" material are they ? - Nice looking unit Fran, even if a bit fierce-some.
    (And I say it's rose not magenta - far more feminine)

    ReplyDelete
  40. i am going to say "top Shelf"... wait i did!

  41. Alright alright, enough, Okay, I'll go spend money on these minis! Sheesh, stop pressuring me!

  46. These are very nice miniatures, sir. A great painting work!

  47. Very nice job indeed! I've just bought some hinterland figures and they are very small. I was hoping to use them for In Her Majesty's Name but they are too small sadly. 25mm foot to eye as opposed to 29mm for the North Star figures...

    1. I agree but finally got round to the idea that they're women and most women are smaller than men especially over a hundred years ago!

  48. Very nice job. Remind me, have you started painting their enemies, I don't recall?
