Chaco War

I finally finished (apart from flocking the bases), the Chaco War Bolivians. I think the figures themselves turned out very nice even though my poor painting skills do not do them justice.

The third photo shows the figures next to a base of Eureka Bulgarians painted for my fictional South American army. I included this picture just to show a comparison of the figures. I think they can work well together although the Chaco War figures are a bit more "beefy" and for lack of a better word a bit cartoonish in my opinion. This is not a problem for me and I think they painted up nicely. The one figure I do have a problem with is the officer. I think his cap was sculpted a bit to big and he looks odd in my opinion. You can see what I mean if you enlarge picture one. In the future I may just substitute Eureka Bulgarian officers.

Khurasan Miniatures arrives!!!!

I made the order to Khurasan miniatures on Wednesday and the figures arrived this morning!!! Talk about quick turnaround. The order was simple, one pack of Bolivians and one pack of Paraguayans. I took the figures out cleaned off the flash and snapped the pictures above. First impression, very good. The figures are clean, have a good deal of character and look comparable in size to the Peter Pig and Eureka. I am going to try and get a few painted and perhaps even based this weekend at which point I will add some pictures of the completed figures. Now I need some Vickers tanks.
