VBCW: Old Glory Militia

Filed under: Old Glory Miniatures, VBCW — gisby @ 12:30

I bought a pack of Old Glory Boxer Rebellion British Marines, because they looked like they’d make good-looking militia troops. With 30 figures in a bag, I would get 3 units.

The first unit I painted in khaki, and they wound up looking like WW2 Home Guard. I really like the look of the unit. I gave the bugler a slung rifle over his shoulder, even though you can’t see it at this angle.

The second unit is in RAF blue: they can be used as RAF ground troops, or as a citizen’s militia. There were only two buglers in the bag, so they don’t have a bugler.

The third unit is in field grey: they can be BUF Auxiliaries, or more militia. Since there were only two officers in the bag, I had to convert a bugler into an officer.

I really like the look of these units. Although well cast, being Old Glory there are a few wonky head poses, and they arrived bent in every direction. But they straightened out without breaking.

EDIT: In response to some questions, here’s a comparison shot with stuff I had close to hand.

  1. Very nice! Liked and followed, hope to see some more in the future. The Boxer Rebellion stuff works a lot better then I would think, lots of possibilities there!
