Somali Militia 2: The New Batch

This is the second group of 28mm Somali gunmen, now with distinctive and somewhat menacing scarves to cover faces, plus some longer pants and extra kit here and there to impart a more military look.
These will be available from Eureka Miniatures.

The leader figure gets a Chi-com chest-rig, while the RPG gunners have some fancy backpacks now.

You can mix 'em with the unmasked militants to create some variety, or use them as some sort of full-time insurgent group. I usually don't do straight up head-swaps but have made an exception with the Somalis since I really wanted them finished and off the workbench as soon as possible. 
I'm looking forward to painting these so expect to see some painted examples soon.


  1. The scarves certainly add something!

  2. Love your work, Kosta. These look brilliant.

  3. What a coincidence that I found your blog and this post in particular today - I've just been finishing off painting some ZANLAs as Somali gunmen!
    I was wondering what I should use to pad the group out with - now I know.
    These look really fantastic, and I've been having a blast painting your sculpts, both the ZANLAS and the marvelous US Marines.
    Now all I need is some patience...

  4. Fantastic! I'm looking forward to getting these onto my tabletop!
