(Not Quite) Finished 28mm: 28mm Aussie Jungle Fighters #4

And another batch are finished. If I hadn't added so many extra figures since I started I'd be almost finished. However, with all of the additional figures I've purchased (speaking of which, the figures I ordered from Wartime Miniatures arrived on Thursday - a week to ship in from Australia) I've got a few more batches to paint up.

But on with the pics of the batch I've just (not quite) finished.

Junior Leaders

I was originally planning to have junior leaders (corporals) mounted on 25mm round bases and mark them somehow to make them easily identifiable, but realised that might be a bit tricky. Instead I have decided to mount them on 25mm square bases. Of course, being about halfway through it means that a lot of the SMG toting figures are already on 25mm round bases so some of my corporals will have rifles instead.


This weekend I've done a bunch of priming - the Militia figures and all the Wartime Miniatures figures.

I've also made a good start on the next batch of figures:

Just a couple more basecoats to do before a thinned Strong Tone wash and they'll be ready for highlighting. I should get them to that point tonight.


  1. I will second that cool
    They have a lovely look of "Aussie attitude"

  2. I hear you! I always have 'Purchase creep' when getting new figures!
    For 'What a Tanker' I planned to get about 10 little tanks...the count is now 32!
    The Aussies definitely have a nice natural look...I approve!

  3. Best Aussies I've ever seen! Great job, Tamsin!!!

  4. Love that Mortar Team. Very nice work.

  5. Lovely work Tamsin, The force is coming together nicely.
