No Mixed Bathing (No Running, Diving, Bombing, Heavy Petting or Smoking in the Deep End)
It’s FEMbruary – and the first of my believable female miniatures heads towards the painting table. The BMC Plastic Army Women from last year’s BMC Kickstarter.
These are not Pound Store figures themselves but complement that style of plastic figure, often pirated or cloned that ends up in pound stores.
Before I paint a trial handful of these new Army Women, I took the time to give them all a bath and scrub to remove any mould releasant.
All 105 of the figures, 3 stretchers plus 3 dogs and their leads ready for a wash and brush up!
Last seen wearing … snow gloves and cold weather gear for a Christmas 2020 game.
So the BMC Plastic Army Women was my first Kickstarter which arrived in time for FEMbruary … but I also stocked up on an extra FEMbruary project just in case for this year (or next) – Bad Squiddo WWII Pigeoneers!
You can read more about the FEMbruary figure painting challenge set up by Alex at Lead Balloony at my fellow blogger Marvin’s post here: https://suburbanmilitarism.wordpress.com/2021/01/17/fembruary-2021/
FEMbruary – Open to all to join in!
I have some interesting plans for 2021 for these plastic army women figures … watch this space!
Meanwhile the Arma-Dad’s Army Elizabethan project trundles quietly across the painting table as well.
