28mm Painted Victorian Sci-Fi German Marines from........

.........Copplestone Castings.

A small contingent of Germany's finest to stake their claim in the region of Angria but mainly to annoy the British forces in the region!

May add some auxiliaries.......

  6. Victorian Sci-Fi German Marines... When will the movie be out, and will it star Sean Connery as a Prussian general with a really bad attitude?

    1. Hmm. Connery in sci-fi. As long as he's not wearing thigh boots and a red banana hammock... Though there IS a miniature for that.

  9. A very apt addition to your growing VSF force. Light blue epaulettes are a nice touch they add to the Marine feel of the figures. (Enough people had already mentioned the trousers!)

  13. Is it ok to say I like the blue?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Do you plan on painting the French in pink or keep with a pastel blue?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nice figures - I guess that's why they call it the blues . . .

    (Sorry Sir Elton!)

    >:O)

  16. Very nice Fran, I believe the accent colour maybe a shade of blue and it certainly adds something to the unit and commanders.

  22. Love these mate. But what makes them sci-fi? Do they have tesla-powered moustaches or steam lederhosen? ;) Seriously, I really like this stuff your creating. (and I like the blue trousers as well...)

  25. Great painting and color selection, Fran! That blue pops wonderfully in the set.

  26. Hail, General Fran! Very nice painting. The old fella in the last picture with the goatee looks awfully familiar, to me. Nice hat on him too.

  32. Nice paintjob Fran.
    With the brownish jackets and blue trousers they look a bit too Russian for me but anyway nicely painted.

    Cheers

  33. "mainly to annoy the British forces in the region"

    Lol. Not exactly the same time period, but that statement made me think of this Japanese anime called "Hetalia: Axis Powers." Basically a parody of WWII where all the nations annoy each other.

    Great paint job!

  34. They look fantastic, Fran. In case no one mentioned it yet - I'm really digging the blue pants!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great looking Colonials - I agree about the interesting colors of the O's pants. Best, Dean

  39. These guys turned out nice; well done.

    Of course you will need some auxiliaries! Is this project going to have a pulpish flavor?

  40. Very nicely done Fran, I wasn't that keen on the figures when browsing the Copplestone ranges for ideas. But seeing you excellent job on them I'm reconsidering them :D

  45. Great work Fran, especialy for me with the blue color of the pants!

  46. I love those shiny blue pants. What they lack in camouflage ability they more than make up for in sex appeal.
