In a moment of insanity, I decided that it was time to paint about 150 - 200 Peter Pig AK-47 republic figures I bought as a hodgepodge about 10 years ago. Then somewhere in the past, when Cannon Fodder Miniatures was still selling them, I bought a pack of his African irregulars, recently added to with Rebel Minis' Bongolesia box set. All of these are, of course, 15mm.
So far, I've only painted Rebel Minis African regulars, close to the picture on his site.
But the recent release of a Shantytown by Finger & Toe decided me to do buildings first. Originally I reduced the 28mm buildings to 55%, but that made them too small, so I ended up reducing them to 73%, to match up to the ones I had generated in Model Builder at 1/87.
I had found a pack of 50 new, unused Budweiser beer coasters at an Antique store and decided to use them as bases.
This shot is obviously from a passing UN helicopter, but gives you a better idea of the cluster.
And here's a panoramic view featuring the outhouses on the left!
One like this, and one like that.
There is also a need for a more modern town, so I designed these 2 buildings with Model Builder, with signs from PrintMaster.
I'll design more, and place them on some floor tiles Chris Swearingen gave me.
The picture quality is not up to my usual because I didn't use a tripod as I was getting ready to go to Texas and needed to get the buildings off the dining room table!
Oh, though I mentioned AK-47 Republic rules, I won't be using them. I'll look at Rebel Minis' Modern Havok and Bongolesia, and do what he does; modify something from Two Hour Wargames.
