Reg 'Pops' Dwight is clearly a man who needs a crew - some willing (but not necessarily bright) chaps to order around and do all the awkward or dirty jobs.
With that in mind, I procured a set of 'Jim and the Fix It Crew' by Four A Miniatures. In due course I'll paint the third member of the crew, but for now I've got a nice pair of dockers / engineers / spaceship crewmen for Pops to take charge of.
The paint jobs are very quick and basic - basecoat, wash, single highlight, but as these two figures are purely for scenic / NPC purposes, I didn't want to spend an age on them. They've got the same colour scheme as Pops, but where he has a nice blue uniform with orange trim, I decided that orange boilersuits were more suitable for the grease monkeys. Job done!
