Some odd American Revolution stuff

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.

1812 and all that

I finally had a few evenings free so was able to paint a few figures. These are 10mm Napoleonic figures from Pendraken. I bit off a bit more than I could chew and finished the Russians I had from bag to base in about two evenings. It was a frustrating process and I think I just did to many figures at once. Consequently, they were kind of rushed and are up to "wargame standards" and my painting does not do these figures justice.

ACW in 6mm

I had a few free days, rare and far between, so was able to finish some more 6mm ACW. I put the completed forces on the table and snapped a few pictures. The terrain is a real mix but if I remember correctly most of the houses are timecast. I am toying with the idea of using 3mm terrain for the 6mm stuff but am not completely sold on it.

The figures are mostly all Adler except for the canon which are Baccus. The Adler canon is just to much of a pain to glue together. I gave up completely on gluing the carriages together and decided for sanity sake I will use Baccus for the guns and carriages. I am happy about how the ACW stuff came out so for now at least I am going with 6mm instead of 10mm but knowing me I will likely switch back at some point.
