Trade Union Militia

You may recall I have been working (on and off) on a contemporary English Civil War project, England Prevails. For this I have now completed my first Trade Union Militia unit from the TGWU Liverpool Dockers Chapter.


The figures are from Red Star Miniatures excellent Chechen fighters line and painted up easily enough in a mix of civilian clothing styles. I did replace the Soviet weapons on two, replacing them with SA80's to tie in with the background.


Not sure what I'll paint next, either the Dwarf King's Hold skeletons or some more zombies...

  1. Nice one Steve. They look excellent. All they need is a tranny van to travel in :-)

    1. It's historical John set in the late '80's and they need them to unload the Soviet arms shipments from Ireland! :-)
