INSURGENTS plus support weapons and vehicles.


These are the latest batch of figures and vehicles that I have just finished painting for my modern period. The figures come from three different companies, the first are from Eureka Miniatures.




Second group of figures are from Radio Dishdash which are sold by Empress Miniatures.

The rest of the figures and the vehicles are from Empress Miniatures.



A few of the figures I haven't based as I want to be able to fit them in the back of some vehicles.

Also I haven't glued these guys down onto the motor bikes as the pillion riders can also be used to ride in the back of some pickup trucks, also there may be gaming occasions when I want just the bikes without riders parked up outside buildings. 



The Toyota Pickup trucks are resin with metal wheels and come from Empress Miniatures. They have a variety of support weapons that you can load them up with.


Here they are along side some diecast vehicles that I had painted previously. They are not a perfect match scale wise but they will do for gaming purposes.

Crewed up.


The latest batch.

And with the previous stuff that I have done.

A couple of action shots to finish.

  3. Excellent looking miniatures and gaming table. I have just ordered some of these along with Taliban figures from Empress and am eagerly waiting on their arrival after seeing this. Are the buildings your own or bought as they are also excellent.

    Cheers, Ross

    Ross, the buildings are mostly scratch built apart from one. See previous posts.

  7. Fantastic work, Pat. A chilling and tough group of fellas on any table, I'll be sure. I love the motorcycles, although our chum Richard Clarke always likes to describe them as "deploy-ride on-get shot quickly troops"!.

  13. All of your figures and terrain are so realistically painted and detailed. The insurgents in Western attire really bring home the reality where living in today.

      Carlo, I have yet to try out the 'Fighting Season' rules yet, as Richard Clarke had to delay the testing of this due to his bad back. Hopefully he will have it all up and running by Salute.

  21. Amazing work, especially the layers of weathering on the cars really impresses me a lot. Some of the insurgent minis look like they could also be used for a eastern Ukraine setup.

    1. Thanks again chaps.
      BP, yes they could be used for the Ukraine I guess and Empress Miniatures are now doing the Russians in their modern range.

  22. Fantastic painting work. All of them are really brilliant.

  23. Brilliant models and painting as ever! Out of interest the guys in all black, who are they painted to represent? Any group in particular?

    1. Thanks chaps.
      Mike, the guys in black were just painted on a whim. The leader with the glasses just made me think of Stallone in The Expendables.

    2. I just thought it was a great way to mark out more elite Taliban or insurgents I was going to steal/borrow! I've got loads in 20mm for Force on Force but needed a quick and effective way to mark out the Tier One and Foriegn Fighters from the locals/farmer Taliban militia types.

  24. What's not to like, outstanding post. Especially like the vehicles..including the bullet holes in the windscreen. Excellent!
