A pair of interesting characters...

o/

I've painted two more Quar (counts-as-Brits) to go in my Quar invasion army for Bolt Action. The platoon commander can have two assistants/runners/bodyguards/etc., and these two will fill those positions.  First up, the bag piper:

So how do you say: 'What the hell is that noise? That's not supposed to be music is it?' in German?

Playing the tunes written by their ancestors (Quar worship their ancestors), he will inspire nearby troops on to greater acts of valor whilst conquering the pathetic humans that oppose them! While he has no weapon on him, concealed somewhere is a pistol, probably hidden under the bagpipe.

I can assure you, no photos are staged for propaganda purposes...

Of course, what better way to inspire the folks back home, than with photographs depicting such acts of valor? My 'embedded' (not sure what term was used in WWII) Camera Quar will do just that! Also armed with a pistol (again concealed), he is also festooned with gear! Two cameras, a pack full of lenses, film, flash powder, etc., and even a loaf of french bread that's been 'liberated' from the locals no doubt! lol, it's even wrapped in a picnic blanket. All he needs now is a bottle of French wine (though he's more likely to get some of Screech's German whine).

Behold: the Is-Caerten and his two flunkies!

Here's the whole of my command group. I have to admit, that these two latest Quar are easily my favorites in my little collection of them! I still have another handful on order (need to check on the status of that actually...) and aside from the Crusaders-turned-SQS (SAS) whom are awaiting parts from that order, I only have four remaining Quar to paint! No doubt they will be facing Screech's gray (but not Panzer gray) Germans before long...

Me too, they make me think of the animated classic Wizards.

Was in der Hölle ist das für ein Geräusch? Das ist keine Musik, oder?

Sie wollen jammern? Wir noch nicht begonnen zu jammern.

Niemals! Es lebe das Vaterland! Lang lebe das Dritte Reich!

Schauen Sie heraus, Cheef! Es ist die grauen Gezeiten von themenorientierten Soldaten des kleinen Mädchens.

Sie sind alle nur sauer, dass man nicht so genial wie ich.
