Bhurpas Add New Firepower

A recent game here in GHQ underlined the Bhurpas' lack of firepower, relying as they did on an ancient muzzle loading monster, The Great Gun Of Bhyklabad. In part it was due to Empress having sold out of the Jazz Age mortar set at Vapnartak! The situation was happily rectified at WMMS last week and here is the proof ~

I use a very limited palette when painting up my figures for the Bhurpa tribesmen: mainly the Foundry range of White, Black, Conker Brown, Madder Red and Russian Green for the clothing. This helps to give the figures a unified yet varied look on the table I find.
The pack also includes a 'bomber' wielding a Molotov Cocktail ~

I find painting things like bottles has its own issues. I generally paint the bottle grey, highlighted with Boneyard Light. For the liquid in this instance I used a careful wash of the old Games Workshop Brown Ink. Its a shame the picture is a bit washed out, you'll just need to trust me on this occasion, it looks fine here in front of me. Look out for both to make their debut in a game in the near future.


  1. You have done a spiffing job on those old bean

    1. Thanks Phil! They'll definately boost the Bhurpas I feel.
