  1. This weeks batch of lockdown painting. First up are two brigade commanders, one Westphalian, the other from Berg, Perry miniatures metals with converted plastic foot chaps 20200517_160010[1] I'm hoping to start playing Chain of Command after the lockdown so I added a few extra figures to the small 1940 British forces I had. 20200517_160154[1] Warlord Miniatures this time. I think they are lovely castings and were a pleasure to paint. 20200517_160209[1] 20200517_160241[1] I also have a Vicker Machine gun team to finish and have a Vickers Mk VI on the way. Thanks for looking
  2. I'm catching up after a spurt of modelling this week after a lot of lockdown DIY. These are some miniatures by The Assault Group I picked up at the Hammerhead show. Really nice figures to work with and I even painted the eyes in as the detail was so well moulded. 20200502_112558[1] Thanks for looking
  3. More lockdown wargames figures, this time some cavalry. They are Perry Miniatures French Guard Lancers converted to Lancers of Berg. This involved removing unwanted epaulettes and cords. The elite squadron also had head swaps to give them hussar style fur caps. 20200425_172724 As always thanks for looking
  4. More lockdown painting. 20200420_194703[1] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/15218468 Slightly converted from Perry 28mm Austrians 20200420_194734[1] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/152184681@N02
  5. For some reason I cant get Flickr to load to the Forumso I'm trying something else h That seems to have worked.
  6. With the enforced social distancing, I've had some time to work on my newest project, the 26th Division of the Grande Armee. These chaps are the 1st Battalion of the 8th Westphalians. Basically they are half a box of the latest Perry plastics. Thanks for looking not sure why the photos aren't posting I'll try again later
  7. My second major unit of my new force, the 2nd Battalion , 1st Kleve-Berg infantry. For a change I used the newish Citadel Contrast paints for the main uniforms. Tye chaps on the left were painted in the said paint over a white undercoat, the chaps on the left use my usual technique of Vallejo white over a black undercoat. The faces and hands a of the left hand base are also contrast paint. Not convinced but I'm going to stick with the Contrast paint and have bought dark Blue and Dark Green for further units. Thanks for looking.
  8. My latest project is to build an army of 1812 to fight my mates Russians. I didn't fancy doing French again and whilst my 1815 army, especially the heavy cavalry, is fine I wanted something more colourful and unusual so I settled on the 26th Division of the 9th Corps. It has lots of German allies and not even the odd Frenchman here are the first draft. basically a box of the new Perry french 1807 -1812 figures with a few metal command ansome metal artillery. By adding a few metal command figures I get two line battalions and a skirmishing unit from a single box. !st Battalion, !st Berg Line. Berg Artillery
  9. I have finished (for the time being at least) my Confederate Wargame army with these two final regiments. Basically it is the remaining two thirds of a box of plastic figures with a few extra metals to add a little uniqueness out the units. There are enough arms in the box to do them all as marching or charging. I used both poses again to make them a bit different The only problem is that my army fitted into a single 'Really Useful Box' These two mean I need another box and then these guys will be sliding around. I fear that more figures will follow.....
  10. A pre Christmas shopping expedition with SWMBO to Sheffield allowed me 10 minutes in the local wargames shop, nothing grabbed my attention but an upcoming New Year game of ACW meant I ended up with a box of Perry Rebs. With a bit of padding with a couple of metals will give me 3 regiments, the first is now finished along with the Brigade command base. I'm planning a new Napoleonic force for a potential demonstration game at various local wargames show, Just need to get paid after Christmas.
  11. Getting into uncharted territory now, I have exactly zero wargames figures to paint. I've never been in this position in 40 years of gaming and even worse I have no plans for any new armies or even units! first up is a Confederate gun crew running up the gun. lastly, a unit of Papal swordsman to round off my Condottieri project. Both armies have seen action in the last two months, so I'm not been short of tabletop action. Tomorrow is the re-fight of the Battle of the River Plate, using the venerable but brilliant Fletcher Pratt rules, as it is almost 80 years ago to the day. I'm HMNZS Achilles.
  12. Hi Guys, After coming away from Partizan with a few boxes of British Napoleonic infantry and cavalry, I thought I'd have a go at painting some infantry. Now, I'm quite used to painting 6mm, 15mm for wargaming and 1/72 for my aircraft/ boats but I can't remember doing anything with 28mm, so this will push my boundaries some what. These figures are not going to reach a wargaming table but are for display only. I was going to display the whole box set but I'm leaning towards showing them in groups so as to cover as many different aspects as possible, so I have decided to single out the rifle figures. I plan on keeping the heads separate to make painting easier, as with the backpacks but I might modify them slightly so as to make them look different. These four chaps are not going to cut it on their own, so... ...got them some buddies, these are Perry Miniatures. And... you've got to have some boss men, Perry's command set. Now, I don't know where I'm truly going with this but the idea is to paint half as the 60th Rifles from the Peninsula War and the other half as the 95th from Waterloo. I like... the look of this flashy sod, so I might just start with him. So, their you have it. If their is anything I should know, just shout, preferably before I've done. Comments and critique always welcome. Oh, these will NOT be fast, these will be fill in jobs, so don't expect fast and furious stuff. Stuart
  13. The real world has been interrupting my modelling recently, my wife had a successful operation to remove a lump, the garden is under some sort of control for the time being and work has taken a turn for the better, though that means time away from home. So very little has been completed, these two bits being the sum total of my completions. The cardinal is either blessing the the blooming big gun or telling them they are doing it wrong. You guess is as good as mine. I really like the figure holding his back, he looks like he has put a shift in.
  14. Hi folks, Games Workshop recently re-released a building kit that I wanted to buy first time around but couldn't, so this time I took the plunge. As usual, it's chunky, quite dear for what it is, and characterful. And like most GW scenery kits the fit isn't exactly immaculate. The kit in question is Skullvane Manse, now called a Warscryer Citadel. It's a sort of wizard's observatory perched on top of/beside a big rock, and as you might be able to see from the Standard Skeleton, it's a good foot tall: Cleaning up and assembling the twenty-odd parts took most of the weekend, and I've spent a couple of evenings after that filling seams and covering up some of the moulded detail with Miliput. Some smaller seams were filled with CA. For reference, this is what it's supposed to look like: More pictures on the Games Workshop site I thought the big stone tower looked a bit precarious on the cantilevered wooden platform, so I left that off and will make it up as a separate building later. I also added a bit more bracing from Evergreen strip, textured with a saw blade. The spattered-looking Miliput was thinned with water and stippled on to cover up some of the areas where the direction of the moulding meant there wasn't much surface detail on the rock. The aim is to put it on a small scenic base, but I'd better paint it first otherwise access is going to be very tricky. Cheers, Will
  15. Buoyed up by their first outing on the table a couple of weeks ago, I've been finishing a few more figures. I have just 16 more to paint and the FBG. Basically there is a unit of light horse,sometimes called Stadiots or scurriers, mainly used for scouting and raiding but couple act a skirmishers on the battlefield. There is also a General counting the cost of another brilliant plan and some wounded used as markers in the game. Thanks for looking
  16. We have just taken delivery of a large range of Rubicon Models 28mm (1/56) military vehicle kits. Perfect for wargamming, each kit allows for mulitple variants to be constructed. Click here to see the full range https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/brands/rubicon/
  17. More Italian war figures, This is a Landsknecht pike block, with a mix of Perry and Warlord plastic figures and some head and arm swaps. There are a couple of Warlord metals in there as well. A Perry light gun. I have one of there huge Bombards to do at some point The pike block with some halbardiers who were used to break up opposing pike blocks.
  18. My latest wargames project is to build an Italian Wars of the renaissance, around the last a decade of the 15th Century and into the first decade of the 16th. The figures are mainly Perry Plastic with a few metals I already had. The pike block is Florentine The crossbowmen are Papal. I reckon three boxes of plastics will give me 6 units and a couple of command bases which is enough to start playing using Pike and Shotte.
  19. Just for a bit of fun I got this set from Perrys and thoroughly enjoyed painting them. The size and closeness of the lens does them no favours. Thanks for looking
  20. Feral George (Onumo, Hippoxus Warrior) Mierce Miniatures This chap was finished a couple of days ago, and he'll wrap up my builds for this year. As was the case in 2017, I've only managed this one bit of figure modelling this year and, also like last year, he's from Mierce miniatures, who are by far my favourite producer of gaming figures. Officially, he's Onumo, a Hippoxux warrior of the Byzantii army, but I like to think of him as George, everyone's favourite camp pink hippo, who's clearly really let himself go since his Rainbow days. Technically, he's 28mm scale, but he's a fairly big chap and stands approximately 3 inches high. The base is a lump of insulation foam, carved to shape, and covered with Vallejo texture paste and some Citadel crackle paint. George alongside 2017's Walvax Warrior, who can be seen here, and 2016's Gurrir, who is lurking here Thanks for looking Andy
  21. More usual fare with these chaps, they are the 1st battalion 1st Legier as kitted out for the Waterloo campaign. There are also two Brigade commanders based for the Great Game in Glasgow next June. I'd normally put a cuple of additional figures on the base and make a little vignette but the game wants single based figures for commanders. Once the game is over they will be rebased. Thanks for looking.
  22. These are a little different to my usual output but I have been building lots of units for the fictitious Very British Civil War(VBCW) for a number of years. We have fought may engagements in and around South Yorkshire as large multiplayer games with out tongues firmly in cheek. Anyway when the war broke out the crew of HMS Sheffield were in Sheffield to march through the town and meet local bigwigs. The uprising in the city put a lot of pressure on the officers and crew who had no easy way of returning to their ship, So far they have stuck together and retained their discipline but cracks are appearing with desertion of both officers and other ranks. Enough of this rubbish here are the figures : Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
  23. Hi, can anyone recommend 28mm figures for British Infantry and Indians from the French and Indian war? May be some French and Civilians too? I do not need large numbers but I am looking for good quality figures. TIA Ingo
  24. These a These are my latest finished figures. They have been on the to do pile for a while as I was side-tracked by some English Civil war figures but I'm back onto Napoleonics now. Thanks for looking.
  25. Having enjoyed building the Rubicon CMP truck I decided to try one of their armour kits and settled on the Crusader, which has long been one of my favourite tanks. You get a load of options in this kit, late MkI, MkII, MkIII, MkI/II close support or MkII/III anti-aircraft so there's a lot of parts in the box: Lovely well produced instruction leaflet: Finally there's a generic British armour decal sheet: What to build? Decisions, decisions... I might do some minor conversion work and try to build a first batch MkI with the open mantlet and Caunter camouflage. John
