A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break. My current interests are Ancients, ACW, 30YW and SciFi gaming.

(Not Quite) Finished: 28mm WW2 Aussie Jungle Fighters #6

And another batch is finished. Phew! Almost there now. The only problem is that I've started to run out of space in the foam figure trays. I've got room left for another 8-figure batch, but I'll need to order some more before  painting any more batches.

However, this batch and the next will ensure that I have a full platoon plus support options for Chain of Command.

Senior Leader

This chap is the Major Lumley figure from The Assault Group, which was a freebie add-on as my recent order was over £39. I'll probably be using him as an adjutant or maybe as a grizzled Sergeant Major for Chain of Command.

2" Mortar Team

These are part of my recent order from Wartime Miniatures. They looked quite nice as bare metal, but once I started painting them I became less impressed with the sculpting. One of the details that bugged me was that they appear to be wearing the illegitimate offspring of gaiters and puttees. Hopefully the Independent Company chaps won't suffer the same issues.

Tommy Gunners

The figure on the left is from The Assault Group, the one on the right from Wargames Foundry. Both are from their Chindit ranges.

Rifleman and Medic

The rifleman is a Chindit from The Assault Group; the medic is from Wartime Miniatures.


This is a Eureka figure and I think it's the last one from the order I collected at Salute.

I've just started the next batch, which should be finished mid-week. I've also finished painting the packs, pouches and weapons I primed last week.


  1. A tough looking bunch Tamsin, fabulous stuff.

  2. I like the flamethrower, wouldn't care to be on the receiving end of one though!....

  3. @ Michael A - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - cheers! I wouldn't want to be on either end! :)

  4. That's some cracking work all round ūüĎć

  5. I look forward to seeing the finished force as so far every unit you have turned out has been excellent.
