Some Adler Prussians and French

I dug out some of my Adler Prussians and French. I have been considering many options for the Napoleonic period but cannot settle on anything. 10mm looks nice but nobody has a range for 1806.
I really like Baccus figures because of ease of painting and basing but was not happy with the figures I ordered a few years ago because most of the bayonets fell off (He has re-sculpted the range so perhaps this is now the answer?). In my opinion the Adler figures are works of art but they are really a pain to base if you want to cut them off the strips which I like to do. The Adler figures are also very fragile. I am constantly reapplying crazy glue to keep the bayonets from falling off. Strangely the Seven Years War Adler figures I have seem to be more durable.

So for the time being I will continue to deliberate. I still have those 10mm 1866 Austrians to finish!!!

A few more 1866 Austrians

I finally had a chance to photograph some more of my 1866 Austrians. I have about double the amount of Saxons and Prussians done but did not have time to take them out. The figures are all from the fantastic Pendraken 19th Century range. I am thinking of using Trapped like a Fox rules for with these figures.

Visit to Russia

Took a vacation to Russia and indulged a bit of my military history interest with a visit to the artillery museum in Saint Petersburg. Most of the pictures are from the museum the leftovers are from a military parade at the Kremlin and miniatures sold at stores all over Moscow.

More WSS


I have been busy as of late but did get a chance to take a few more photos of the WSS Imperialists. I actually managed to paint a few additional regiments not in the photos so hopefully in a few weeks I can get the full growing force together. The army is roughly based around the Italian campaign. All the figures are Pendraken and the houses are timecast.

Imperialist 10mm


I have started, albeit slowly, putting together miniatures for a 10mm Imperialist War of Spanish Succession army. I like them on big bases which unfortunately does not appear the standard for most of the rules I have been looking at. I think the smallest I can game with in 10mm is 40mm x20mm which I based these on. I like the look of three bases representing a regiment so I based them in this fashion although now I have to find rules. This is my representation of the dutchmister regiment. These are all the fantastic figures from Pendraken. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Back?


Its been a long time but I am back. I honestly did not paint anything in about a year and had no motivation to. However, within the last few months the motivation has returned aided by some visits to the Metropolitan Wargame Club in Brooklyn. A fantastic group of folks that put on great looking games. I have included some pictures of WWII Flames of War Games I observed at the club. I hope to have some new stuff within the next few weeks.

More South Americans

I have hit a bit of painters block recently. I guess this is for a variety of factors including some construction work being done in my usual painting space. I have several other places to paint and organized kind of a portable painting desk in anticipation of the work starting however, for some reason without all my stuff in one place its been hard to get focused. 

Before the construction started I finished some more South Americans. These are meant to be professionals to compliment my militia force. More or less the new trained regiment led by Communist observers. For uniforms I based these on WWII Thais I figure in 10mm I may be able to use them as Thais one day as well. All figures and trees from Pendraken.
