Mrs Miggins

I have to say I really enjoyed painting this Empress figure from their Spanish Civil War range. I decided to paint this model as though she had dropped everything to defend the home. I liked how the dress turned out and I like the contrast with the webbing and hat, oh and the very un lady like boots.

The figure comes with an oil drum which the LMG is braced on, as I didn't want to base this up to look like a street scene I decided to pop some reeds in front of the drum as though it was abandoned near a hedgerow. I need to prune the reeds and probably add a bit more to make it look more wasteland/hedgerow like.

I'll be adding this to my Big Game 3 force, one of my favorite models, and favorite paint jobs.


  1. I like that a lot. some how it has a real VBCW feel to it, due to it's real lack of uniorm. I have painted this mini too, it was one of my first for VBCW. It's lovely to paint.

    See you on saturday.

  2. Thanks mate, have to say was really quite enjoyable to paint. Love that it look's like she's just dropped the shopping and grabbed the gun!.

    See you at the weekend.
