I bought my first Bad Squiddo figures from Annie Norman last year, some fine 28mm Land Girls at Rest, as part of the FEMbruary challenge 2018.
This FEMbruary challenge 2019 I have chosen two packs of Bad Squiddo female figures:
Women of WW2 – Russian Soviet infantry command figures
Women of WW2 – Land Army Girls at work.
Unusual and charming figures, these Land Girls will get the gloss acrylic Toy Soldier paintwork style https://badsquiddogames.com/shop#!/Womens-Land-Army-at-work/p/93150439/category=21735085
As I don’t have any 28mm WW2 figures to game with, I will base these Bad Squiddo figures up individually but they will, for the time being, work as great little diorama vignettes.
Once more, like 2018, fantasy gaming blogger Leadballoony has set the FEMbruary 2019 challenge to paint some more believable female miniatures than the usual unbelievable chainmail bikini female fantasy (or male fantasy?) figures.
This year, matching book bloggers like Cupcakes and Machetes, https://cupcakesandmachetes.wordpress.com I have chosen a book for FEMbruary as well, to match the Bad Squiddo female Russian figures.
The Unwomanly Face of War looks to be a fascinating and suitably challenging read for FEMbruary 2019.
FEMbruary 2018 recap
Last year I featured several of the female figures in my toy soldier collection
FEMbruary 2018 even extended to my Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog
And I marched on (with Marvin at the Suburban Militarism blog pitching in) and on into March and International Women’s Day March 8th …
Happy FEMbruary 2019 – It should be fun.
What might you do as your FEMbruary challenge?
