Perry Miniatures Afrika Korps 2.

I've got a box of these to paint up for fine gentleman miniatures sculptor in fair Nottingham. I painted up ten, as requested, as early DAK in sun helmets. They can be seen elsewhere on the blog. The remainder are to be painted in a variety of shades of faded kit. So I thought I'd do ten to depict troops in 1942, still mainly with the tropical green jacket but fading, and the last ten in all sorts of sandy shades. Also pictured here are the six figures that will make up the platoon command section.

Eureka Miniatures Jazz Band

A return to the brushes after an enforced absence has yielded the completion of the Eureka Miniatures Jazz Band for "the Beast". Here they represent the resident jazz and blues band at the Wake Island Hotel, ready to entertain in a scenario he has been planning for quite some time.

Here they are with one of my all time favourites "Send me to the Electric Chair" from 1927.
