More Guns & a couple of wagons for 1680s-'90s (or even WSS)

Very pleased with how these came out. The gun positions are better than the one I did a while back for my own collection!

The Buffs!

It's been far too long since I posted anything here. This is a unit of English foot for the 1680s & 90s. Not the best photos but they are part of a commission and I wanted to make sure I had a record of them. I must remember to get some better shots before I send them to their owner. I've completed some guns, emplacements and flags which I'll post later.

First Grand Alliance Artillery

This is the first of the guns ready to roar. I decided I'd get the big guy out of the way before I moved on to the smaller pieces. It's listed on the League of Augsburg site in the Warfare Miniatures section as a "Monster gun of position" no arguments from me in that respect. It's a fantastic model and I'm rather chuffed with how it turned out.

Grand Alliance Infantry (in better pics)

I visited Barry Hilton on Tuesday of this week and took part in a Crimean War game with Dave O'Brien as my opponent. We were play testing the forthcoming Four Empires supplement for Republic To Empire and it was fantastic fun, possibly the most glorious defeat I've ever had! I'll post up photos from that soon. I had my Grand Alliance infantry with me and Barry took several shots of them. I reckon they look great and they certainly put my "skills" with a camera into perspective.

Cheers Barry!

Grand Alliance Infantry

Time for another update to my gradually expanding Warfare Miniatures forces. I had plenty of problems painting this unit, not least of which was impaling myself on the pikes several times! 

This is Brewer's Regiment of Foot. 

All in all, they've turned out quite well. Next up - artillery.

Grand Alliance/League of Augsburg Foot Regiment

These are a few select shots of Kirke's Lambs. Oddly none of the front shots of the whole unit were in focus, which only leads me to believe that my men don't do full frontal! There are going to be many more units appearing here soon. From more medieval Scots, ECW, LOA to Napoleonic. My brush has been busy.

A Fresh Start

Right, from here on in I will be posting various pictures of my work, and maybe the odd opinion or two. First up are some Claymore Castings Medieval Scots. Absolutely superb miniatures designed by Paul Hicks, I can't wait to see how this range will expand. I followed David Imrie's tutorial (check his Saxondog blog for details of that) they are a joy to paint.
