25mm Late Romans still underway...

With Christmas just around the corner, here's some not particularly festive WIP shots of my Patrician Romans for ADLG in 25 (8?) mm.

They are a mix of the Gripping Beast plastics, some Old Glory mixed barbarians (that I think might be mostly Scots from a slightly later era, but seem to do OK as generic Gothic foot types) with a few Foundry and Footsore figures sprinkled in to make the variety greater.


 Romans prepare to take on the (as yet un-Army-Paintered) barbarian hordes


12 units of barbarians.... let;s hope the Romans are Elite!


Auxilia, with obligatory LBMS shield transfers


The man holding up the shield is one of the "far too many in the pack" Gripping Beast archers, but converted to hold his shield up to cover his colleague from archery


Some of the "far too many" archers acting as, well, archers. I went away from the textbook red colour scheme to make them more exotic.


Still awaiting Testors Dullcote varnish on this lot


A Degenerate Legionary unit with an old-school standard


I think the officer may be a Footsore Miniatures Romano-British figure


Cloaks at the ready...


Foundry armoured cavalry. Probably able to play as Cataphracts as well at a pinch. I used some spare GB plastic spears as their lances, as they are pretty robust and the Foundry metal ones are far too bendy. They don't yet have Army Painter on them


More LBMS shield transfers....


Warlord Games 'Unleash Hell' General and Dog


Again, needing a coat of Dullcote. His skintone is just a wash with Peat Brown ink.

Hopefully I will find time to put a big dent in getting them all table-ready over the festive break...

28mm FoGR Reports from Derby 2015

Marvel at the size of their pikestaffs, and be amazed at the innovative use of crewmen along with their battalion gunnes as the Catholic TYW Germans attempt to mask their true emissions and bravely soldier on against all comers, real and imaginary, in a series of four fully-loaded 28mm FoGR battle reports from the 2015 Derby Convention



Read the battle reports here!

28mm FoGR at Roll Call 2014

Roll Call is the current BHGS "Big Boy's Toys" event, and so I fielded 2 separate 28mm armies, one of which was the Spanish that I was driving and one was the Weimarians, which I ended up facing in the last game...



See how the big toys did in 4 by-now-familiar match reports. The photo's aren't all close-ups, the figures are 28mm!

28mm TYW Warfare at Central London

A handful of photos of a 28mm game against Don "Not The Don" Avis on Thursday evening this week. My chaps are a parliamentarian army, fighting here against the dastardly French.

Parliamentarian armoured Carbine horse close in on the French guns. Bold, but effective !

The Parliamentarian infantry were waiting between two fields as the better quality French advanced towards them. The Parliament forces are almost all Warlord Games figures

The two lines of troops close to shooting distances.

The Parliamentarian attack on the right starts to break down.... and so did my ability to remember to take more photos unfortunately.

All the rest of the photos...

The Warlord Games 28mm TYW project is now done and dusted. The final set of photos are here. I now am the proud owner of  the following units:
  • 24 Cuirassiers
  • 48 Other Horse
  • 12 Mounted Harquebusiers
  • 20 Croat Light Horse
  • 72 Spanish Tercio Foot
  • 156 "German" Pike and Shotte
  • 4 Regimental Guns (Falconets)
  • 4 Medium and Heavy Guns
  • 8 Bases of Dragoons
  • 4 Generals
  • 1 Baggage Camp
(Just a tiny degree of "project creep" there then....)

More TYW Pictures

Yet more 28mm Warlord Games plastics now painted ! The Armypainter Quickshade really works well on these, even if I say so myself!

The Testors Dullcote arrived in the post today, allowing me to matt finish my TYW figures. Here are the results ....

Warlord Games Renaissance Figures

I'm part way through painting some Warlord Games 28mm plastic ECW figures as TYW Imperialists - first up is a Spanish Tercio. Here's a sneak peak at a unit that might feature in a battle report later this year.

28mm Plastic Frenzy !!

Doh! I've finally succumbed and bought some 28mm Plastics. I've been fighting the urge for a while, but they are now so cheap (30p a figure??) and there are enough ranges to allow you to morph them into different armies (Auxilia + Vikings = Sub Roman Brits anyone?). Have a look here at what's for sale on eBay UK or look here for US listings. The Warlord Games ECW stuff is available to see here
