Spanish-American War Bulgarians Tiger Minis
Hi kids, Once again I have actually painted something! WOW! (Not that the paint jobs are wow-inspiring, but the fact that I'm painting might be.) These Tiger Miniatures have been lurking in the Basement for a couple years, maybe 5 or so, and it just seemed like they were ripe enough to go ahead and get 'em combat ready. Got a tub more of 'em still waiting. Maybe someday.... Yes, the title of this post is a little misleading; as far as I know no Bulgarians were in the Spanish-American War. Tiger makes both. Painting makes strange bedfellows.
Long time readers might remember the world famous East Transdniesterian* Border Police, my Pulp Imagi-nation unit from way on back. I bought these Tiger Minis Balkan Wars figs cause they looked the part. Now they have officially joined the ranks as gunners! I think they were originally Bulgarians. They come in groups of 5, but the others were posed to sit on arty pieces and I haven't decided if I want them permanently glued to guns or not yet. After all, my guns have to serve many masters. You never know what time period or part of the world you'll be playing!
*Yes this country really exists, sort of. Part of Moldova went rogue, not sure if anybody bothered to recognize them or not. I think they were printing their own money. Maybe Putin has already taken them over.
