Today just some pictures of the really nice 15mm Peter Pig Polish 1920's figures. These were a joy to paint and will be a nice part of my midwar collection. I think they are to late for Russo-Polish War so I have to figure out what else to use them for. Enjoy the pics:

I was able to take a quick video of my 6mm Adler Prussians. I have a mixed relationship with the Adler figures but have to admit that once painted and based up I simply love them. Hopefully at some point I can get started with the Austrians. I love the fields in the photos but forgot where I got them. If anyone knows the manufacturer please let me know I want to buy more!!!
Some pictures of the Army laid out:

I have a few weeks off and am trying to finally get some painting done. Unfortunately, I seem to be just pulling things out of the unpainted boxes and working on them so no real organized progress to show yet. I did put together a video of my ACW 10mm stuff and snapped some pictures. I hope to get some work on the Confederates done at some point before the madness of real life intrudes again.
These are almost all Craker line figures (the Confederate Cavalry is Pendraken). I have been looking at the new 12mm stuff recently but while I like the idea of a boxed starter force I just can't get into the look of the bunched together figures or the artillery. So I am staying away and will continue to expand on the 10mm stuff and the 6mm Adler ACW.
I noticed that I generally rush with these videos and seem to be panting like crazy in this one. Don't worry I was not having a heart attack!!! Hopefully I will get better at making them as I practice!!!

A quick video of my growing odd AWI British army. I will have an update on these guys shortly with some more generals and loyalists on the desk now. I also will post a video of my Union ACW army shortly. Hope you all enjoy. Let me know if you like the video posts or should I just stick to pictures?

I have this idea of one day putting together a game of the Spanish attack on Florida during the American Revolution. This may be fictional or based on real orders of battle or most likely will be something just brewing in my imagination. Anyway, I had a rare few free evenings and some Pendraken AWI figures so decided to paint up some as Spanish and British Militia. I also wanted a cool French colonial regiment in the collection so painted some of the figures as the Saint Domingue regiment. I just like the history of this regiment and this is my fictional take on it.
The Pendraken 10mm AWI line is one of the best I have seen in 10mm. I absolutely love the figures and they are a joy to paint. I used French for the Spanish and French and I believe American Militia for the Militia.
