Next Project- SPUnK

Well obviously a relaxed weekend, another PZ blog.

It's a forward for my next project Special Police Unit (K Div) SPUnKs!

Birthday Loot. What a Lucky Boy am I

The Tablet was a surprise. I wanted the Indians to play a 'Muskets & Zombie' game, which was a freebie from THW. that doesn't seem to exhist anymore.

The WW1 German Infantry and  toy model car are for my next task. The reason I am embarking on this project is that I am so jealous of you guys with your SWAT teams. So I decided to create my own.

Potential SPUnKs

True to the 1930's & plastic theme I've gone for the German Infantry as, I think, their helmets are a close replica to the custodial helmet that we still wear. So they could make a decent 'bobbies helmet' (fnarr, fnarr).

Blurred final selection
 I went for the same ORBAT as we use now for a Police Support Unit (PSU), well half a one. One Sergeant, six Cons and a driver. Once selected there was the tedious job of cutting off the flash. I was a bit disappointed as there was loads of it on these figures.

What I wish my 'Man Cave' would look Like all the Time
 All kit prepped, pigs fed and ready to fly. Didn't last long as Sunday Dinner got in the way.



Prepped
Flash removed, appropriate webbing and back packs expunged, picklehaub spikes gone. Everything ready for the next phase. (Big thanks to Paul from 'Paul's Bods' for the plastic conversion inspiration.

I hope you enjoy this experiment with me.

Happy Sunday to you all!

  4. Seeing those Airfix WW1 german soldiers takes me back to my childhood, many eons ago. My brother and I used to collect loads of Airfix models and figures and paint them very badly in gloss paints. Oh, the shame! Anyway, I look forward to seeing how this project turns out. Oh, and happy birthday, mate!
