Grenadiers of Nassau

First the front side

Then the back side
Drying varnish gleaming in the early morning sunshine...

What's the latest?

The first batch of French Dragoons of course! Whatever else?

Napoleon, in the Rhineland with some Dragoons?

And I just finished off a unit of NaT Nassauers.

Nice figures and because of the way they break down in the box, you could build a few options with just a couple of boxes. Full marks to HaT on these little gems.

Oh yes, the rest of the Curassiers

Oh, a Dutch Battery appears to be about to either deliver some mighty stick or be completely overrun.

What I did on my Holidays

 An Emperor and a personal attendant
 A Cuirassier and his flag
 Redux... Yes, there is a complete unit of Cuirassiers. He's no Nigel no-mates.
And Hurrah for the RHA! Spanking chaps and I am sure Captain Mercer would be proud.

Currently working on some Nassau infantry and am putting the finishing touches on another pair of RHA 6pr guns.


French Dragoons, I think.

That article

My first Tommy. Still a work in progress as he needs a few highlights here and there, some violently dark green on his base and a good coat of gloss varnish. Still, I am jolly pleased with him. One of Stadden's fnest.

And the production line creaks into life

With their varnish still slightly sticky and their bases unpainted. Stadden's very handsome 30mm Great War German infantry

The Luftkreitskrafte

The Herr Rittmeister waits impatiently for his kite to be made ready
 Every Funny Little... project needs a dinky old aircraft right? And a ground team.
I swear it was here a moment ago..!

As this is as much a paint test for painting Field Gray, 1914-style, any feedback would be gratefully taken on board.

And now for something completely different

Just looking for trouble
From the Warhammer Conquest range - not the magazines themselves, just the sample from the book.

Yes, I have subscribed.

Finished the charging Mamluk

Ahh, finished at last. The varnish is still sticky.

The Charging Mamluk...

...with apologies to GĂ©ricault  and the French Romantics.
The fairly familiar Willie figure with a few gentle bends and twists. I just need to bash out some wire for a scimitar. And prop up the horse with some brass wire so it doesn't sag to the ground under it's own weight.
