With a Rebel Yell 10

Casualty markers for the CSA including artillery and infantry stand; the cavalry will follow shortly.


All of the figures above are from Friekorps Miniatures including the infantry stands shown below.


Next are three more command stands for the Confederate  States of America. The figures this time are from Blue Moon supplied by Old Glory.


From right to left below there are standards for the 11th Missippi, South Carolina 6th Volunteers and the 24th Alabama infantry.


More standards and markers to follow along with work in progress pictures from the Greeks and Arabs.

Cheers for now.

Back to the Brushes 164

June has been a slow month for hobby time here with little progress happening on several on going projects.

The command and casualty stands for Confederates in the ACW move on steadily.


Even slower is the progress being made on the Arthurian warband and for SAGA. The companion figure for the foot Warlord needs some attention to allow that figure to completed as a small diorama base that will allow the Warlord to be removed and placed with two Companion Hearthguard figures on a separate stand.


Finding blogging via a smart phone a bind, something that will hopefully not be an issue for much longer.

Next up will be some more Rebels.

Cheers for now.

Back to the Brushes 163

Hoping this works out ok as pictures taken, edited and uploaded from phone instead of the now defunct desktop computer.


A variety of stands for ACW Confederates including command, artillery, infantry and cavalry casualities. A mixture of Blue Moon from Old Glory and Friekorps.


The peltasts move forwards at a snail's pace. There is a fourth now with base colour on tunic.


Heartguard for SAGA are getting near to a final session to complete the first part of the warband. The Warlord (on foot) has just been finished although his companion still has the bulk of the figure to paint. 

The painting desk in all its chaotic glory.


Next up will be the first completed ACW stands. 

Cheers for now.

With no computer at present have not been able to up date any progress with on going projects.

Everything should be back up and running by tomorrow to resume normal posting.

Cheers for now

Fantasy Hero 14

Due to technical issues with a dying hard drive no work in progress pictures just now. Reinstalling from back ups however this is happening too often just now so time to consider replacing the thing. Bugger!

These figures were painted in the mid nineties and are some of the first examples of layering being used here. Both are from Foundry's War of the Roses ranges; think so anyway.



Now rebased to return to their rightful place as arrow fodder in skirmish and role playing games.

Hopefully, back to normal shortly.

Cheers for now

Fantasy Hero 13

These figures were started during last year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge and never saw the finish line. A year later and several hour or so's painting and here you have them.

Citadel ME25 Rangers of Ithilien







Moving on to the remaining AD&D Ranger figures for mid and high level characters next to complete this warband.

Next up will be more work in progress from the ancient world this time.

Cheers for now

Back to the Brushes 160

After a brief chat with Dave Imrie from Saxon Dog at Carronade the other weekend have finally decided to put some effort into painting this unit of peltasts that have been lingering on the fringes of the painting table since December last year.


In the back ground their smaller brothers in arms can be seen with just the first colour on their tunics. Its the same blue by the way


Some close ups to show the layering on the tunic.


Hopefully this will continue on to stands of slingers, prodromoi and companions in 28mm for the Macedonian army that was first planned about twelve years back.

Next up will be something from a certain book that has a lot to answer for, for many not just me by the way.

Cheers for now
