Ubonga 2

'King' plus attendants
I'm more or less recovered from the downcast mind-set of the last two weeks and have been fairly busy , almost but not quite finishing the 20 masked natives bought at Durham three weeks or so ago.
I've been working through the few miniatures that I have for "Jimland" and although not entirely finished (they've have the  final 'insopection' to pass), they're in a state sufficient enough for play.
More Natives (with reverse view of two )
Along with these I have the last of my the European Explorer types ("white-men") ready for the table too.
Reporter/Photographer type and a woman in typical trope-role. 
Two of the ugliest female sculpts I've ever encountered.
The masked warriors (95% finished) surrounding the tray of unpainted. 
Jungle, only the centre bottom piece has a little more to do on it.

The jungle in coming on apace too, with nine out ten of the current batch bases filled with flora, but they all do have their bases to have two more highlighted colour to be added (Burnt Sienna and Sand fort any  that are interested).
Over the next week I'll be trying to finish some terrain boards for the game, the twenty masked warriors, the jungle and I'm hoping to have a bit of a tidy up too!

So that's it once more for this week, as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated and if you haven't already, check out "Wargame Addict's blog"  HERE

  3. Ugly stuff indeed, Joe, and by that I mean those two facially challenged female sculpts you've painted up!! Lovely pink and blue dresses though - very subtle colouring imho :-)

    1. Haha, yep I wouldn't like to meet either of those 'ladies', I don't particularly like the colours but they'll do - slap-dash is the order of the day.

  4. Great stuff Joe - you've brought out the character in those mini's and the jungle is looking lush!
    I was trying to think where I'd seen those two ladies faces before.......
    I'm sure it was near a beach somewhere....
    Oh yeah - Easter Island!!

    Many thanks for the plug BTW :-)

    1. Thanks WA, they may not be the best sculpts around but they do have character and you're probably right about the inspiration for the women.

  5. Love the jungle terrain. It looks like not much needed to make a good layout. The attractiveness challenged minis are well done, given what you had to work with. Fun stuff!

    1. Thanks N667, I may have overdone the jungle , considering I probably have as much greenery again. I'd challenge anyone to make the women look less like harridans too.

    1. Thanks Brummie, I'm guessing Cinders is the one who made it into trousers!

  8. Very nice Joe, the jungle looks fab you can never have too much. Those harridans look fearsome!

    1. Thanks dGG, I'm pretty pleased with how the jungle has come out, quite a bit different from the first batch too.
      I think the women are a bit more scary thanfearsome...

    1. Thanks Phil, they are good but I feel they're limited in their use.
