Mounted Officer

just as a break from the infantry,the horse looked a little small in the lead but i think it looks ok painted.The gold work was toned down with a wash of plaka Matt black.

Last ECW foot unit.

Last one for the royalist army,cavalry and artillery next.With this unit i needed to finish it up quickly so set myself a target of 12 figures in a nights session,about 8 hours.the overall effect is ok,as you can see it still needs basing.More importantly i get to move on to different stuff that I'm "into" at the moment,flames of war and the new project french Napoleonic army using AB miniatures.I ordered some last week and hope they come soon.Is it me or are all wargamers/painters flighty butterfly like people flitting from one shiny new project to the next?

Just for fun


A friend (Chris Cope)gave me a bag of redoubt American native Indians,thought it would make a nice break between painting for others.The flesh was a bit of trial and error,at first i made them to dark then to light.I finally settled on a base coat of foundry bay brown "C" then adding greater and greater amounts of Games work shop tanned flesh.

88mm for my flames of war German forces,i do like the resin scenic bases these come with.

A busy weekend and more Napoleonic cavalry

Bit rushed this weekend with a few family events and a trip down to Essex miniatures for painting supplies but managed to start and finish five more of the 5Th Belgian cavalry for Mr Chris "insanity" Cope.
