Dance of Bronze 17

Slowly another 6mm Macedonian Phalanx moves forward; painted in less time than it took to trim, glue and base them in ranks of seven.When viewed next to their colleagues the effect of massed 6mm figures does really work on the table. There will be more…

Sunday Workbench

I’ve been pretty quiet of late, struck down by a near-terminal case of man-flu, combined with rebuilding my PC and lots of actual real life work. Occasionally though I’ve managed to find time to twirl the brushes, plugging away at a bunch of post-…

The 8th Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge has now come to an end and 76 painters have put down their brushes and no doubt taken a deep sigh of satisfaction and relief. This was my fourth time taking part and this time around I set myself an ambitious…

Isandlwana Hill

With all my planned figures painted and two weeks left of the challenge remaining my mind began tuning towards a final ‘Body of Work’ photo. Then I thought it would be cool to lay out my British and Zulu’s against a backdrop picture of the mountain of …

Clairemont must be held

Posted on March 16th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

The wind ruffled the canvas of the temporary command post set up in the forest. The rooves of the houses in Clairemont were just visible if you craned your neck and peered around the curve in the tent flap. Despite the breeze the interior of the CP was…

24th Foot in Skirmish order

Posted on March 10th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

As promised (foolishly) a few weeks ago I have been painting the same six companies of Infantry in march order, line and now in skirmish order. This should give the British player a lot of flexibility with his troops and also means I can scale games do…

The 1st Imperial Mounted Infantry (IMI) were an ad-hoc unit made up from troops of four different infantry regiments (the 3rd, 13th, 24th, and 80th). This proved valuable as all the men had experience as a regular foot soldier which made them a more ve…

I was over at Bruce’s on Tuesday and we played some plane games. First we started out using C21 Airwar to play a Vietnam game. I had two Phantoms to protect some ground attack craft from 4 MiGs. Better hurry up, boys!It had been awhile since we had pla…

umHlanga Regiment

I was planning on ending the painting challenge with the much larger uVe regiment but I had a ‘mishap’ with my can of primer that left them looking like I’d painted with brown Semolina! My own fault, I used a new can that had been stored in a cold plac…

I’ve been plugging away at various projects this week and decided to complete some logistical items for my British forces. These were relatively easy to complete and gave me time to prepare other models for coming weeks and to research some of the unit…

Royal Artillery

Just a small entry to the Painting Challenge this week, but considering how busy and tired I have been I consider this a success. I was planning on getting more infantry companies painted but was making such slow progress I switched to something a litt…

Clarendoc – Northern France, 1940

“We’ve found Jerry”. The strain of two weeks of marching was clear on the faces of the officers seated in front of the Brigadier. Runnels of sweat carved furrows through the two weeks of road dust, making faces look like braided river beds. “It looks l…

Time a something a little different, and not a Zulu in sight! The first British units I have painted are six companies of British infantry marching. I’m planing on painting the same six companies three times; first marching; then in a formed firing lin…

My next regiment of Zulu’s is the umCijo (“the sharp pointed”) and fought as part of the central “chest” at Isandlwana. This is an unmarried regiment, hence the black shields, made up of warriors with an average age of about 28. It Isandlwana the umCij…
