In Her Majesty's Name VII - Painted miniatures

I've finally gotten some painting done.  It's been months.  When I'm away from the brushes for too long I build up an immense amount of inertia.  The amount of work it takes to reach over and pick up the brush to slap some paint on something seems equivalent to a twenty mile hump (hike).

Paroom Station
The first four Marines.

I completed the first four of my eight Marines for In Her Majesty's Name.  This set is an officer, sergeant, bugler and rifleman.

Paroom Station
The Sgt.
The Sgt is a nice sculpt, other than his giant hand.  Seriously, that thing's completely out of scale.  These miniatures are from Paroom Station and are very nice.  They have good, clean detail and lots of character.

Paroom Station
The rifleman.
Sadly, the riflemen are all advancing.  There are no firing models in this line.  I also noticed a bit of blue on the neck that is not visible to the naked eye.

Paroom Station
The officer.  He could be any of the officers of the company.
The officer is a very nice model.  Loads of character in his face and nice detail, without being cluttered.  He also has the best cover (hat) as the officer should.

Paroom Station
Side view with the blood stripe.
Marine officers and NCO's have a red stripe on the side of their trousers.  It's too commemorate the blood shed at the storming of Chapultepec in the Mexican American War.

Rear view.
The officer also has scarlet cuffs and neck.  All of the Marines wear standard U.S. sky blue trousers.

Paroom Station
The bugler.  Love the mustache on this guy.
The bugler has the scarlet cords on his bugle and an excellent mustache.  There is a lot of character in the faces of these models, even under their big hats.

All in all, I'm very pleased with the Paroom Station models.  The casts are nice and clean with lots of character and detail, but not cluttered.  I would recommend that anyone interested in VSF check them out.  I have a link on my manufacturers tab.

    1. Thanks Anne. The officer's coat has a couple of black washes over it. The blue on those should be almost black.

    1. Thank you Andrew. The officer is, sadly, my favorite of the models as well.
