Sloppy Jalopy Miners

Sloppy Jalopy 28mm scale Interwar / VBCW Miners

This week I have been painting this lovely pack of Very British Civil War Miners from Sloppy Jalopy. I don't know why it has taken me so long to get around to painting them, as they are a lovely set of miniatures. Richard gave me a set to paint up to go in our display cabinet a couple of years ago when we became Sloppy Jalopys show stockists. I'd painted the cricket team and the canal folk, so I was determined to get them painted before I saw Richard and Laurence in a couple of weeks at 'The Other Partizan'.

The miners have been base coated in a variety of greys and browns and then dipped in Army Painter Quick Tone which has brought the detail out nicely.

The figures came on the usual plinths, which I snipped off with side-cutters and remounted onSally 4th clear perspex bases so that when I use them in a game they will match the terrain they are standing on.

I decide that my miners would be from a Durham colliery as Ann's Grandad worked in a colliery in County Durham.

Sloppy Jalopy VBCW Canal Folk

The miners have now joined the canal folk and cricket team in our display cabinet. We are just packing up to head to Claymore in Edinburgh on Saturday and on 19th August we will be at The Other Partizan at Newark showgrond, so you can see them there, or click here to take a look at the Sloppy Jalopy range in our webstore!
