FEMbruary 2019 and new Bad Squiddo female 28mm figures

FEMbruary 2019 – some new Land Girls at work from Bad Squiddo – and a free guinea pig.

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.


FEMbruary 2018 Bad Squiddo Land Girls at rest – work in progress  on the glossy acrylic painting table last year.

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.

The quirky packing by Annie and team at Bad Squiddo: postcards, teabag and free guinea pig! Annie Norman has this whole thing about “peegs”.

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.

FEMbruary 2019?

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 …



54mm Suffragette Conversions underway,  including Airfix footballer FEMbruary / March 2018

Happy FEMbruary 2019 – It should be fun.
What might you do as your FEMbruary challenge?

  1. Great choice of figures! I too have an order from Bad Squiddo – and they were so, so nearly the same figures that I ordered! But first I’m tackling some different female figs – more on that from me soon!

    I love your book choice too. Definitely something I’d be interested in, but maybe I’ll see what else I could read too first.

    Good to see the clever suffragette dio again, btw.

  2. Good to have you onboard again mate & looking forward to seeing how these Bad Squiddo minis come out!
    Slight suggested edit – you mixed me (Leadballoony) up with ImperialRebelOrk in your post 😉

  3. Interesting choices. My local bar has a Women’s Land Army recruitment poster

    Of course, in the US February is Black History Month and March is Women’s History Month. But I wonder if I couldn’t convert a plastic figure or two like your suffrage figures – I’ve got time.

    Actually, I wonder if that couldn’t be a make-and-take at work… must reread that particular post.

    1. This all sounds promising.
      I remember some of the US (gaming) bloggers celebrated Black History Month last year during FEMbruary 2018. This month I have watched the ACW film “Glory” for the first time and already had some black Union regiment figures amongst my ACW figures and cowboys.
