My 15mm Modern North Korean Forces Part 1.....

.........or has Kim Jung-Un set his eyes on Franonia?

These North Korean forces whilst not exactly accurate are close enough to represent some North Korean armoured forces, we have 10 Peter Pig T-55's, 4 Btr-60's (including a command), a ZSU-23-4, 2 Gaz-469's and an old Mercedes for a leader or commander.

I have the infantry from Khurasan painted and hope to add the support weapons this year when they're released, I asked about a command group but I don't think this will happen.









,,,,,,,infantry to come!

    1. LOL. The propaganda truck is brilliant! Course you could build a small diorama of 15mm troops marching in line for the quarterly "look how high we lift our legs parade". Great minis Fran!

    1. I keep asking him the same question about that blue and he says he's forgotten. He's keeping that secret to himself for some reason.

  20. Impressive force to fight those imperialist pig-dogs. It defo needs a section of Harlem Globetrotters led by the fearless Rodman.

    Righto, I'm just off to take my medication.

  21. I always thought Fraonia was more desert than the colour scheme seems to indicate. It is an impressive force though. I do wonder what the surrounding countries might be, Leetopia, Postieabad, Izzygrad!

  29. As I said on Curts page... great work and I really wish someone did North Koreans in 28mm!!!

    Now you should also paint them some T-34´s as the North Koreans still use those, too!

  36. Lovely bit of kit there Fran, any plans in the pipeline for a game with them?

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are so awesome, expect a call from Kim Jong Un any day now. I have a feeling you just became Chief of North Korean military operations.

    ReplyDelete
