Armies Army Minis & Vehicles Part 2 + Penal Brigade

Hello again all,
I'm going to continue with my Armies Army Minis.
Just finished my first batch of the Penal brigade. I got 30 of them when they came out at the discounted price.
I must say that imho I think that these are the best minis AA have made yet.
Flash & mould lines are almost non existent, Quick & Simple to paint , with great results.
The bare heads are good sculpts though the least I like is the one in the middle below.

The female of the group is slightly smaller & is one of the nicest 15mm female minis around. Hopefully AA will develop this line more , with Saws , Flamers , Close Assault ( e.g. with shields ), Nco's etc.

I think that these minis can be easily used as minions, security , cultists ( e.g. WH40K Blood Pact ) , Afrikaans etc, especially if AA brings out conversion heads like berets, hard hats , KKK hoods & gas masks. I like also the thin base unlike the previous AA models.

I highly Recommend them , though I don't recommend trying to convert them by bending the legs .The metal is of the hard brittle stuff ( which is a good thing as it takes bumps better without damage but is almost impossible to bend ) , I almost broke one off at the ankles when I tried to make one running.

I finished 2 squads of Sas - Grey undercoat spray, Vallejo Stone base, then olive drab,light grey ,black & thin bleached bone lines.

Built another Electric Cannon tank & painted brown for the guards

Love these wheels & now that AA have sell them separate, I must get some to build one of those huge Russ lorries.

White undercoat,Vermin fur base,peat brown wash & bleached bone highlights. 4 different shades of grey for equipment..The r/h one is the only female of the group.
