Reinforcements for the Miners Militia

I have converted some minis for the reinforcements of my Socialist Miner Union Militia "Gruvettan" for our A Very Moderate Swedish Conflict" club project.

First we have a 2 men Heavy Flamer team, made out of 2 Musketeer Miniatures Militia minis from pack BCW06 Worker Militia Command.




I also thought that the Miners needed some troop transpor. So I ordered a realy lovely model "Carden Loyd Carrier with Oerlikon gun and crew trailer" BUT the Trailer was missing...havent heard from them in more then 20 days...hope it will be sorted out soon... 

Anyway I decided to mount the Oerlikon gun on the Carrier to get a mobile A-T rifle, can always be handy:)


Please also have a look at my friend Björns blog Ådalen Miniatures there can you see a WIP picture of some of the new minis he have commisioned to expand his Ådalen Miniature Range i.e.28mm interwar Swedish Army miniatures.

  1. You keep coming up with great ideas. But now I wonder how the government forces will respond to this escalation.

    1. Thanks !

      Please don´t blame the escalation on the Red´s as they just just done this as a equalizer to the provoktion by the Whites that got some mobile HMG platforms;)

  3. Great looking conversion! Can't wait to see them finished, as well as your carrier.
    Surprisingly having some left over GW bits comes often in handy.

  7. I am glad to see that the fellow Swedish Brothers have got some lovely weaponry. I have to say that I like the idea of the A/T gun of the C/Ls

  8. Excellent and very clever conversions, as usual! I'm sure they will look great when painted up. :)

  9. Oh and another idea to keep the miners ahead in the arms race. Catapults or a giant slingshot to fire dynamite at the government forces.
