The Russian Bear

Posted on January 18th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by


Well my next Challenge instalment is up. I have finally completed my 15mm Russian Army for the Crimean War. You can find the post HERE.

Now I have changed my Challenge philosophy several times already but I guess it comes down to this:
I am doing 4 “projects” for the challenge first up is the Napoleonic Project, I have base-coated several Napoleonic units amongst which are two regiments of Cacadores (part of the Khaki basecoated stuff) a regiment of Portuguese Line infantry, some Württemberg light infantry, a battalion of Prussian Landwehr/ reserve infantry, Bavarian artillery and some command figures.
The second bigger project is my WW1 Project, all based in Khaki as well of course. These include AHL Late War artillery, some Early War ANZACS, a Mark IV and some Late War Highlanders.
Both these projects I am going to complete in total before posting any pics in the Challenge blog or here.

The remaining projects are my 28mm Vikings and some “miscellaneous” figures, these I will be posting as part of the Challenge on my regular posting day (Friday) when ready.

So there we have it!

Cheers Sander

Sherman paint fiasco and Battlelore troops

Posted on January 15th, 2016 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

So, over the Christmas holidays, I painted up some Shermans for a game in a hurry. I didn’t let the spay primer cure and, when I applied the matt finish, the paint crackled. You can see the crackling in the picture below on the right. I’ve never seen t…

A Medieval Fortress

Posted on January 15th, 2016 under , , , , . Posted by

The year before last, I bought a medieval fortress set from Kallistra at CRISIS. This is a substantial set, with a couple of walls, towers, a keep and a gate. I’ve been collecting siege scenarios for the Wars of the Roses as well as for El Cid and was looking forward to having games. However, I … Continue reading A Medieval Fortress
