From the Shed: bits and pieces (WW2, Science Fiction and Terrain).

Some more from my shed- some assorted bits that I had lying around finally finished, all in 20mm too…




commandos in denison smocks 1

A set of WW2 British Commandos, these are from Wartime Miniatures (seemingly defunct now). These ones are wearing the Denison camo jacket, a similar pattern to the airbourne one, making them emminently suitable for a game set on Walcheren Island as part of the operations to clear the Schelt esturary. Shame that it looks like more poses with different weapons won’t be forthcoming.

Sticking with WW2 we have these:

strelets hungarians

A small group of Honved (Hungarian Army) from this set of plastics. I did these as paint testers for a bigger Crossfire/ Megablitz project, more of which later. Not the best sculpts in the world but they paint up very nicely.

Staying with plastics I have done these:

stalker figures

A set of figures by Dark Alliance inspired by the popular S.T.A.L.K.E.R. PC games. I’ve got several of each pose in the box so for the first lot I picked out a few poses to do with a winter theme (I’ve a fondness for winter basing at the moment). Not sure what I’ll do with them but they make their way into a game some how.


Sticking with PC games I made this:

firing range targets

A set of firing range targets after seeing similar ones in the co-op shooter Insurgency that I played with friends a while back. Bits of foam, ground texture and scrap from the bits box went into making this. Should be good to suggest a camp or base somewhere in MENA.

  1. Nice work! Especially the stalkers, they look amazing 😀 love the range piece too- CD base, by any chance?

  2. You’ve been very productive man. The commandos are so cool. The camo looks great but those dark alliance minis are brilliant little sculpts

  3. Getting on well, Pete! I like the Hungarians – they look like the Strelets figures and they always paint up well, although sometimes guns bend or get a bit “flashy”. I might get some of them – I last painted Hungarians in the 80s and they were basically Airfix Germans and Afrika Korps painted khaki!

      Yeah the Strelets figures are really charcterful. That is the good thing about Hungarians you can use other figures for them easily enough.



  4. The firing range is a very cool and quirky bit of scenery. Great job

  5. Wudugast says:

    Very nice, love the firing range 🙂

  6. Looking great Pete.

  7. Love the Hungarians. And glad I’m not the only person repurposing CD’s! Bet your firing range works well in your upcoming scenario (and it looks great).

    It’s well-known that winter troops come out to play in summer, and the summer-camouflaged ones only surface at Christmas, Pete! 🙂

    Regards, Chris
