Modern British Electronics Specialist

Empress Miniatures produce a British Army Specialist pack comprising a dog handler and dog; female medic, mine detector operator and a 51/60mm mortar operator.

I suspect the medic might have been inspired by the BBC series "Our Girl".

However, my inspiration was another BBC series "Bluestone 42" about an EOD team, whose Electronics Specialist is also female (and the brightest in the team).

So, to make the figure different, I drilled the backpack and added a piece of brass rod as an aerial.

So here is the basic figure, undercoated with Citadel Chaos Black spray then base coated with Vallejo Khaki. Skin areas were painted with Vallejo Panzer Aces flesh and shaded with Citadel Rhinox Hide. Shading was added to the Khaki with Citadel Agrax Earthshade.
Next will be the Multicam camouflage.
