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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Back on the saddle finished up a few Italians for my 10mm Spanish Civil War collection. The new Pendraken Spanish Civil War figures are very nice and a lot of useful stuff can be found in some of the other ranges. These Italians in adrian helmet are from the WWI range. The palm trees are also from Pendraken very nice models.
