G'Wundaland Volunteer Force
Here we have the G'Wundaland Volunteer Force, composed of would-be settlers fighting for the Crown in exchange for land and gold. Armed with US Army surplus Sharps carbines they will serve as a civilian auxiliary to the regular army.
The figures are from Dixon's Miniature Pony Wars range, painted to look more like a civilian body with a few elements of military uniform here and there. I believe the figure at the far right is supposed to be Custer, so I made him the commender of this band.
The base-work is in progress. The first layer is liquid nails, which adheres well to the metal washers. Next layer will be a spackle/PVA mix with sand and coffee grounds for effect.
(The tentacles in the background are a work in progress Peril for Pulp Alley).
