VSF, VBCW, and fantasy

Between helping my wife recover from surgery and a 4-week (so far) engine replacement in my van, I've been a bit busy, but I do have a few more figures to present.

A friend has become interested in A Very British Civil War, so I dug out an old pack of Wessex Games armed Victorian British constables.  I tried to get a tiny bit of blue in their uniforms by painting them in Deca Ceramcoat Blue Velvet, washed with P3 Armour Wash.  I then painted the belts and shoes, helmet straps, and edging with black, and gloss coated them.  All pistols and the shotgun were painted with IWM Steel.  Skin was a craft flesh washed with a light brown wash.  And no, I didn't paint duty bands on the left cuff.  Happily, they weren't molded on.
The constable to the far right will be called "Monkey" for obvious reasons.  These are older figures and are not on Wessex Games page anymore, unless you go through images on Yahoo.  So I don't know if they are even available anymore.

Next up are rat warriors from Mega Minis, also no longer available.  I got them not long before they sold all their molds.
Unusual for me I primed them in black, dry-brushed them and washed them with a brown wash.

And a Hasslefree vampire hunter, and old GW pirate.  Though it's not apparent in this photo, I drilled out the end of his cannon.  His base still needs terraining.

And here's a paper Winnebago I couldn't resist, since I love Spaceballs!

And, of course, no post of mine is complete without some partially clothed horrible harridan!  I'm not sure who made her, but from the size of her feet, I'd guess GW, though probably Metal Magic for real.

T-t-t-t-thats all folks!
