VBCW: Renegade Miniatures Post Office Rifles

Filed under: RENEGADE Miniatures, VBCW, WW1 — gisby @ 10:45

When I sorted all my unused Renegade Miniatures WW1 Early War British I found two units worth of of marching/at trail figures. I’m not normally a fan of these poses, so they had been languishing in a drawer for many years.

The first I painted as a red-coated militia unit. This one I painted as a unit of Post Office Rifles. The British Post Office raised regiments for several wars, so they seemed quite likely for the VBCW.

I gave them navy jackets and stone grey pants, and blue puttees. It only now occurs to me that I don’t actually know what a British postman’s uniform looked like. I like them anyway.

VBCW: Renegade Miniatures Militia

Filed under: RENEGADE Miniatures, VBCW — gisby @ 09:53

After I painted all my VBCW regulars, I started going through my ‘spares’ to see what I had that I could paint up as random units. I knew I had a bunch of Renegade Miniatures WW1 Early War British that I hadn’t used for various reasons. As it turns out, there were 70 of them.

I found a couple of drawers of marching/at trail figures. They had been mixed in with advancing/firing figures in the Renegade packs, so I had put them to one side.

As it turns out, there were enough for two 10-man units, if I added an officer and an NCO to each.

I painted them as a red-coated militia unit. I can use it for either side as needed, and provide another splash of colour. I think they look OK, and not completely unlikely.
