Romano-British Warriors


These particular figures were made last year but it seems we forgot to release them. Can't even remember if they ended up as WIP's on the blog. Anyway the idea behind them is for them to be added to the existing Late Romans to give a more Romano Brit look to units. I'm told GB will have them at Salute so pre-order if you'd like some.

GNW Armies project begins

Well I've been wanting to do it for a loooonnng time, so now, with my enthusiasm for the period once more ignited, I started a blog to log the building of two armies for the period. it can be found HERE

In the meantime here is a bit of paint porn :)

More GNW (Bored yet??)

Ok so no much left to do and I'm getting nagged for Roman Armoured Horse Archers, so after I've done the Russian Guard I'll have a short break. In the mean time here are the current packs that are on their way for molding.


Grenadier Command. I've only included one ensign in this pack as there is some debate whether the Grenadier Regt's even had standards before 1712. In place of the other ensign there is a character figure in the way of a wounded Grenadier.


Infantry Command with Karpus hats. Officers worn the Tricorn so only the Drummer and NCO needed modifying.

Gripping Beast will have these and all the other packs I've been completing recently at Salute next month.

Russian Grenadiers

Just put the Russian Grenadiers together. Just waiting for the Guard dolls to come back to me. In the meantime I'll crack on with the Grenadier command. Pics soon.

Some Painting

Its been a looonnng time since I was in the mood to paint any figures, especially my own. I usually dislike my painting my sculpts as I always seem to find things I'd change on them and it ends up annoying the hell out of me (bloody poncy arty types I know). But I've decided to thin out my vast collection of other people lead and start just painting my own figures from now on (apart from some Perry's WW2. Well I'd bought them and...)
So as I'm in a GNW kind of mood I may as well start off with them so here's a Russian Artillery piece that's been sat in a bag on my desk for 6 months. I'll finish off basing tomorrow and update the pics :)




Finished.

Next batch ready for molding up. *UPDATED*

Ready for dispatch today are Russian and Swedish infantry at the march. Hot on there heals are Grenadiers and Russian Guard and some artillery for the BEF. I've added a few more pics.



These are some Swedish unit characters to break up the ranks and make the units look a little more interesting.
