  1. I think I'll just have time to get these done while I'm waiting for the extra Austrian Landwehr figures. MrsG has chosen the regiment so it's a goer. I've cleaned them off and levelled the bases so the next operation is impalement
  2. I had a little time left after the Siege mortars and these little chappies were shouting at me from the top of my printer so............... They're primed and ready to go.
  3. I suppose this counts in here too.
  4. It's been many years in the planning so I threw the plans away and made this. Now, what's next on the table
  5. The little fellows are, I believe, finished. They're now chasing after d'Erlon's Corps.
  6. Somewhere in deepest Iberia some hard stuff is about to drop on someone.
  7. I was reminded that I had these waiting for me to decide what to do with them. They're not based as I have a few more to add in the near(?) future. They're quite colourful little chaps.
  8. The latest to hit the table, Austrian horse artillery. As you can see, I'll impale anything
  9. The 3rd Uhlan regiment named after Erzherzog Carl Ludwig Johann Joseph Laurentius von Österreich, Herzog von Teschen (5 September 1771 – 30 April 1847) A delight to paint these little fellows.
  10. I've tidied him up a bit and added some metal to the horse harness so I suppose he's done. You know when people put coins in the shot to show scale and you've absolutely no idea the size of the coin they've used? Two can play at that game.
  11. I was preparing to start painting today and this po-faced individual rode up and demanded to be brought forward in the queue. Not wanting to disappoint an Officer I immediately stuck a 0.9mm drill bit up his rear and sat him on a cocktail stick. He arrived as a Regimental Colonel so I've promoted him to a General Staff Officer, that'll teach him The state of play so far is He's actually wearing red trousers, just that his coat isn't turned back. BTW that isn't blood on the cocktail stick, it's off his red trousers
  12. Austrian Uhlans

    I've had the mini-files and the drills out so next up, a squadron of Austrian Uhlans from Newline designs. These little chappies look pretty good with the primer on. The excellent detail in the casting promises a fun time painting. I'll decide on the regiment later as the only uniform difference of the three ( prior to 1814) Austrian regiments was the colour of the Czapka
  13. I've now completed the figures carrying the regimental flags. The plastic on these is not exactly conducive to a obtaining a decent finish when carving lumps off but they'll do, they add a bit of colour to the set These are Officers and NCOs that I'd consigned to the spares box so I wasn't losing any of the figures already allocated to roles. The easiest conversion is to just exchange the flag standards for the halberds that the set NCOs are carrying but I didn't want to lose the halberds. Regiments, left to right; Prinz Xavier / Prinz Frederick August / von Niesemeuschel / von Sanger Regiments, left to right; Prinz Maximillian / Prinz Anton / von Thümmel / von Low That Grenadier Officer definitely looks like Lee Marvin, especially with the grey hair and 'tache.
  14. Grenadiers of two regiments von Thümmel von Low
  15. The completed 6ème Regiment de Chevau-Légers Lanciers (FRench 6th Line Lancers) The little fellows don't look too bad.
  16. These have been in the stash for a while so it's time to give them an airing. I've had the files out so they look pretty clean now. The Bosch screwdriver and a 0.9mm drill did the necessary deed despite a bit of screaming and the odd curse (In French). I've no idea why they made such a fuss It looks like I'll be having fun making pennants and the regimental flag. At the moment the intention is to go for the 6th Regiment but anything can happen before the paint hits the figures
  17. The Firing lines have been completed (for now) with representatives from two Regiments. Regiment von Niesemeuschel Regiment von Sanger I hope you like them.
  18. 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
  19. A British Siege Artillery position somewhere in the Peninsular. + =
  20. 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.
  21. Prinz Frederick August Regiment Grenadiers - Saxony 1806
  22. 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.
