  1. The Firing lines have been completed (for now) with representatives from two Regiments. Regiment von Niesemeuschel Regiment von Sanger I hope you like them.
  2. A British Siege Artillery position somewhere in the Peninsular. + =
  3. I've finally decided to stop touching these up (paint wise that is ). They'll do provided I don't magnify them too much so OK in one of the wall cabinets. I think my favourite bit on these are the buckles and fasteners on the carbine strap. Unfortunately I haven't taken a photo of those so you'll just have to imagine how well they came out
  4. Some time ago I decided to take eight figures from the Revell set 2578 British Life Guards and paint them as Blues and Royals.The horses selected from the set had a lot of extra plastic moulded on so they all had to be recarved, an annoying necessity. They were primed (brushed on black) them given a chocolate brown coat and then inked over black. This gave a very dark brown finish to further play with. I painted the sheepskin a sheepy colour and tried to give some semblance of a shabraque but failed miserably. At this point I just happened to fall upon the information that the Italeri set 6080 French Light Cavalry had the problem of too many shabraques and not enough sheepskins. I dug out a set of these from the stash and selected eight of the horses.. They looked ok to go, the Revell figures fit but the hiorses' tails were too long. I cropped one of the horse tails ( Left) and reshaped the end and it looked reasonable so continued. They don't look too bad. Here's the comparison with a Revell horse The Revell horses now have a new home in an Italeri box and the Italeri horses are set to have Revell riders. Primed Now to get on with the riders.
  5. Prinz Frederick August Regiment Grenadiers - Saxony 1806

  7. At long last we and by great demand ( mainly by MrsG) I present my little band of Russians. They're Newline Designs 20mm so smaller than 1/72 scale. Here's a scale check, the officer isn't the most handsome fellow ever.
  8. A few resources for British Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars. British Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars. More British Cavalry of the Napoleonic Wars Napoleonic Guide: British Cavalry A list of books for sources on British Uniforms of the Napoleonic Period

  11. This is the Encore kit and it needs a good amount of TLC to get it into shape. There's a good amount of sink marks and flash that need attention, but after some elbow grease and some serious clamping, it turned out alright. It's in a nice clean condition as I built it for dad and he's not a fan of weathering. It now sits in his study.
  12. I don't do RFIs very often but I'm pleased that I've finished this and its turned out not too bad. A couple of Airfix 54mm figures, some scratch building and some parts from the spares drawers. A Royal Marine Sergeant, circa 1805
  13. The first two are 54mm white metal figures: The third will be from the recent ICM French Infantry 1914 set, in 1/35 scale.... I did figures frequently when in my teens, but have done only one in recent years, so I expect a learning curve. The ICM set, in fact, I view as being practice of a sort for the metal figures, but I intend to get at least one decent figure out of the lot of four. The Dragoon (of a line regiment) is billed as in campaign dress, but is not really. I am probably going to do it as a different regiment, one with yellow facings rather than pink ones. The Voltigeur sergeant is of the voltigeur company of a line battalion, not of a voltigeur regiment. As was common for the skirmishers in Spain, he has discarded his outer coat, and is wearing only the waist-coat. It will be a little while before I can start in earnest, as I have two biplanes going in the Lesser-Built Air Forces GB here, that must be finished before the end of April, and are only about half-done at present.
