Since we've moved into the new house, I've also made it a nighttime routine with my eldest daughter, Maja, to read a chapter from the actual books. We just happened to finish The Marvelous Land of Oz and while I try to compile and research, I really hit a major snag with two organizations: General Jinjur's Army of Revolt and Glinda the Good's Army of the South Country.
The uniforms for both armies are well detailed in the book, the troubling issue I have is that both armies are totally comprised of girls. Don't get me wrong, I love the storylines, but the issue is, how many companies make 25mm minis of women dressed like this:
I did find a few female "historical" minis, but these are a bit unflattering (i.e. way too much T&A for any game, much less one based in Oz).
I would easily accept the WW2 female Soviet uniform, if someone manufactured them. I'd even change the guns to spears or knitting needles, depending on the army.
