FS 28mm VBCW Canadian Volunteers


I finished a small force of Canadian troops for a Very British Civil War. There are 19 28mm figures (maybe Renegade?) all pictured below. These were troops picked up at auction partly finished (as part of an abandoned WW1 project) and they struck me as a perfect privately raised Canadian contingent for a Very British Civil War game.

The command group (right to left, as it should be...) includes "Colonel" Stephen P. Kelln, financial sponsor of His Majesty's Loyal Canadian Volunteers, Major Bradley Doolan, NCO Lindsay Kevan and demolitions expert Joseph Clark Sr, future father of later Prime Minister Joe Clark (the mittens give it away). 

There are also three fire teams, each comprising four riflemen in vintage gear and a Lewis gunner.

I really enjoy rescuing orphan projects; these fellows were originally based for a late-war intervention in Murmansk so required some creative painting and basing to make them suitable for more temperate climes (assuming endless rain and damp is temperate...).

These come from a smoke- and pet-free home. I'd like $3 each (so $57) and that includes the price of postage in Canada or the US. Offers to bob.barnetson@shaw.ca.

Will report: "I originally got the figures from HLBS. Since then, the line has been sold to Tiger Miniatures."
