20mm Elhiem Modern Prisoners, TV Crew, Downed Pilot or a Secret Santa Clause maybe........?


Chris (The Persuader) Stoesen over at Wargamer's Odds and Ends is running this years Santa Clause where you spend no more than £5.00 on something hobbyish and paint it and then send it to a victim target another member of the Santa Clause cabal.

My victim target member of the cabal was chosen and after perusing his blog(I was already a follower)I spied that he was contemplating getting into 20mm modern from Elhiem, so I spent my money and bought some 20mm modern madness from Elhiem (he recently just painted some modern minis)......

So they will wind their way across the world on a sleigh (Irish Postal Services) this weekend and he may be happy or he may not be but it's better than coal!

A few issues with the painting, varnish went cloudy, primer running off model, going blind but they are figures that he may be able to use for modern scenarios    or candidates for a dettol bath.

  1. I would be happy if the sleigh delivers them here. Nice job on them all. But the prisoners lead to several scenario ideas straight away. (and not just recue!)

  3. Lovely job, but those hostages are a bit grim. I tend towards the happy dream of pretty wargames with no little lead widows or orphans. ;O)

  6. That's a pretty cool idea. I hope the person who gets them enjoys them. They look good to me but I've been told I lack a critical eye because I'm not an artist myself.

    1. So how it your new home? Do you have chickens and lambs running about? When we move, I'd love a few chickens.

      Anyway, Happy Christmas.

    2. Chickens, ducks, turkeys and geese!

    3. Oh man, that's my dream. Very cool. I have a local friend that gives me homestead eggs and man alive, what a difference. So yellow and the flavour, heavenly.

      Do you eat goose or duck eggs? I've only had turkey and chicken.

  21. I think they look pretty damn good, but what do I know? I'm (mostly) an idiot.

  22. Yikes! That subject matter is a little grim, isn't it?

  23. The downed pilot fig is cool....you could come up with a bunch of scenarios just based on that!
