  1. Essentially this post is just to see if I can get to grips with posting photos from Flickr to Britmodeller. Been a member here for a long time but rarely contribute, maybe that'll change if I can successfully show photos... Just finished this old figure from my stash. It's C22 from Shenandoah Miniatures. For those who don't know, these are 54mm metal figures of American Civil War subjects, originally produced in the 80s & 90s by Paul Clarke in Australia. For those who do know, the same applies. I've swapped the kit head for a different one from the same manufacturer and p
  2. Hi all, After doing some up-to-the-minute stuff (Titanicus scenery and Necromunda tiles) I dug out and assembled a not-quite-classic metal mini yesterday. This is a character for Inquisitor, Games Workshop's short-lived 54mm skirmish RPG from the early 2000s. I've had the rulebook since it was released, as it's rather a nice sourcebook for John Blanche artwork and gritty-looking miniatures, but have never dared actually play it or indeed paint any of the figures. I picked Slick up on our local auction site a few years ago and put him to one side, but given that I
  3. Grenadier of the 29th Worcestershire Regiment of Infantry at home 1813
  4. Hello! Its my the latest painting job of famous polish manufacture Scibor Monsterous Miniatures. Im used the vallejo acrylic paints. Best regards, Konstantin.
  5. This is the first large figure I've done in a good few years so it is pretty rough. It's a Trooper 54 figure but seems a heck of a lot bigger. Thanks for looking.
  6. I'm currently going through my stash of older figures and giving some attention to long neglected pieces. This is a figure from Pegaso sculpted by Mike Good of British WW1 Pilot Lanoe Hawker VC. Painted in Vallejo acrylics with the use of some inks to aid the leather effects of the rather fetching baggy trousers.
  7. Pioneer of the 94th Regiment of Line Infantry, 1807. As with Musicians, Regimental Commanders had licence to add features to the Sapper's dress. As well as the apron and axe he has crossed axes on each arm. He was built from the Airfix 54mm French Grenadier 1815 (01553) with changed arms (and possibly legs, I took them from spares I have), the axe is from the ACW American Soldier, not sure where the musket and sword came from (spares) and I made the apron and belts from lead foil.
  8. We're about to start a figure GB on the ATF and I have chosen DSC_0002 by Richard Linnell, on Flickr a Pioneer of the 94th Line (1807). He will be made from 01557 French Line Infantryman 1815 using parts from various other figures
  9. This kit was first issued from 1975 to 1978 and made a brief reappearance in 1980. I suppose that brief period of five years makes this something of a collector’s piece, though it does not yet demand high prices on auction sites and can be bought second hand for a reasonable price. History: Some of the 1768 Clothing Warrant included more loosely fitting coats, turned-down collars, narrower lapels, round cuffs, turned back skirts and white waistcoats and breeches. The model represents a Grenadier of the 5th Foot (Royal Northumberland Fusiliers). This regiment was in America at the
  10. This kit was originally tooled in 1972 and was released from 1973 to 1978 and again from 1991 to 1994. My first purchase was from MR & ME Models in Kempston, probably around 2006. It is blister packed and in good condition. Construction is illustrated in six stages. The mouldings are in white plastic on two runners. A choice of arms is provided; the parts have fine detail and parts should be interchangeable with other kits in this series. Thin plastic sheet is included for the various belts and straps. Shoulder straps with wings for grenadiers are provided along with the worsted tufts wor
  11. Strictly OOB, except I substituted lead foil for the plastic belts. Painted in acrylics.
  12. Painted with Andrea, Vallejo and Humbrol acrylics.
  13. This kit was originally tooled in 1975 and was released from 1975 to 1978, possibly reissued in 1980, and again from 1991 to 1994. History: The ordinary line infantry made all of Napoleon's victories possible. The Bardin uniform was introduced into the French army from 1812. The square-lapelled short-tailed coatee and the trousers were in common usage. By 1815 the French infantry wore a double-breasted short-tailed jacket or habit-veste in blue with red collar and cuffs piped white. White lapels piped red and white turnbacks. Brass buttons. White waistcoat and breeches. Most infan
  14. This kit was originally tooled in 1973 and was released from 1973 to 1978, briefly in 1980, and again from 1991 to 1994. This is packaged in a blister pack. The instructions are printed on the reverse, with assembly in 6 sections. The moulded parts are in white plastic. There is some flash, but details are well depicted, and two sheets of thin plastic card are included for the belts and straps. Options include parade or campaign uniforms and the possibility of making different poses. In addition, this kit has excellent conversion possibilities. History: During the 1815 campaign t
  15. This was bought on e-bay. It is packaged in a blister card, with two sprues of white mouldings. The six assembly stages are illustrated on the header and a small sheet of Plastikard is provided. The figure is nicely sculpted with crisp detail, but some flash evident. This kit was first released from 1971 to 1978 and again from 1991 to 1994. History: At the start of the nineteenth century and the short-tailed, single-breasted jacket was worn. Officers, however, retained the long-tailed coat. Traditionally, hair had been worn in a pigtail, but these were abolished, to the relief of
  16. Hi everyone. The Cossack with a lashRatnik manufacturer. 54 mm, white metal.It is painted for the customer. Best regards, Martin
  17. Hi all, The European soldier with a halberd, 1510-25 CHRONOS MINIATURES, 54 mm, resin Cheers, Martin
  18. Hi all DRAKKAR RAIDER Andrea miniatures, 54 mm, metal. Cheers, Martin
  19. Taking another run at a figure. [/IMG] Here is what I have so far. I have tried for a tanned/sunburnt color on the skin, as this unit was in Palestine before going to Peshewar for operations against Afridi tribes in the 'Red Shirt' episode. A medium orange, a green-tinted buff , raw umber, and white were the basic palette, with small amounts of ultra-marine blue and black as well. All over Tamiya Fine White primer. I intend to move on to the the uniform and gear next. I like to think I have managed some improvement in doin
  20. Been enjoying watching the great builds in this GB and realised there's no plucky Tommies in the mix yet! So I'm going to jump in with a Sergeant, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Ploegsteert 1915 by Tommy's War. I've made one of their figures before, for the Non-injected GB, and they are lovely, beautifully sculpted and molded. Not a huge amount to the construction, most of the work will be in the painting and I think I'll do a nice little base. Got some suitable reference material and am raring to go! Cheers Segan
  21. I don't do figures often, so when I do get one, it's because I really want to do one, and therefore I tend to pile straight in whatever else I may have planned or on the plate. I have had some interest in the Naval Division at Antwerp since back in high school, when I came upon an article on it in an academic history magazine in the school library, and then read Mr. Churchill's history of the Great War. I was interested to discover the Tommy's War people did a figure of an enlisted man in the unit, and found I could get one from a state-side supplier. There

  23. This officer of the 16th (The Queen’s) Light Dragoons (Lancers), 1839 (Afghanistan) is based on eyewitness sketches or descriptions. In the first Afghan War the only concession to the climate was the white cover over the normal headdress, the rest of the uniform being worn as at home. He wears his undress stable jacket, a costume also displayed by this regiment in the Sikh Wars, by which time only the 16th retained the scarlet jacket. Although he has the undress waist belt, the pouch belt is the dress pattern.
