Hi guysHave started a commission to make a 15mm Bavarian army, it is a collector piece rather than gaming army, so will contain units that historically wouldn’t have been fielded together, e.g. Dragoons and Chevaux Legers, to get them as accurate and a…

On Sunday some of Posties Rejects gathered in the shed-o-war to play a neat little Napoleonic, Peninsular War game. This was a fictional battle set with historical forces pitting French forces against a mixed force of British and Portuguese in a strong…
Hi guysA large commission of mixed 15mm Napoleonics finished, to large to post all the pics in one post, so I will spread it over at least 3 posts, all AB (Prussians, Austrian Cavalry), CGM (Nassau) or Xan (the rest) miniatures, AB are of course excell…

I have been out of the game for the past couple of weeks due to illness, no blogging, no painting! In fact not very much of anything, but now I am back.I scored this resin model of La Belle Alliance a few weeks back at the local swap meet.After a bit o…

Hi guysI was going to do Brunswickers next, but have decided to finish some Portuguese I started years ago, (I will show the line troops later) so I knocked these up last night, not to much of a conversion.Grey parts are Perry Brits, brown parts Victri…
Hi guysThis is the first in a series of posts about 28mm Napoleonic plastic conversions, 28mm isn’t my personal preferred scale, however like most of us I succumbed to shiny syndrome and bought a few boxes of plastics as they were released, and have al…
Sculptor Paul Hicks has just shared some pictures of his latest figures on his Facebook page. These are some veterans from the 95th Rifles, which readers or viewers of a certain literary hero of the era may recognise… They are due to be released by Brigade Games, and are likely to be available in a few weeks time. I can see these turning up in many games of Sharp Practice!Filed under: Historical Gaming Tagged: 28mm Gaming, Napoleonic

Hi GuysNext up for the largish Napoleonic commission are the 28mm Spanish Ordenes Militares Regiment, half Grenadiers and half Fusiliers, not sure who makes these, but they look like Paul Hicks sculpts (except the Grenadier officer, drummer and Fu…
I spent some time bitching yesterday. It has to be said that I will be doing plenty of bitching today as well. On top of that, in the long term bitching forecast I can see the bitchathon continuing with a good chance of a severe weather warning, high UV and a pollen count that will make even the hardiest reach for the antihistamine. My other half has a number of suggestions to resolve my problems but the underlying problems remain regardless. Which is a shame because I thought the underlying problems were beginning to work themselves out. Instead of things getting better, things look like they are going to get significantly worse as my mum is now ill. At least it means I get to spend some time with her.
But I have some pictures. As a way of over compensating for a bad day, I did some painting the other day. After finishing off two units of French Napoleonic Dragoons, I moved on to some fantasy stuff. Then back to some more 6mm Napoleonics and have now all but finished my first unit of infantry. One down nineteen more to go. That’s just the stuff that I own at the moment. There are about forty bases to do in the packs that I have. I have done about a third of them (in I think eight years of owning them.
Strictly speaking I would say this isn’t my fault as we play a game, say we will do more and then nothing happens, I have a GHQ WW2 US army that cost £150 for Blitzkreig Commander that we agreed to play that has never been used ). I have plans to buy more French and some Spanish (and Wurtemburgers, Bavarians, Duchy of Warsaw and some Brunswickers) tor round out the stuff I have. Then maybe we will get round to playing a game over even a campaign.
I guess the fact that I buy all the stuff and then it just sits and festers is part of the problem. I like the idea of doing something, no one is interested in it so I have to buy all the armies and still have no opponents. I do what somebody else says is going to be the next big thing, spend a wad of cash and then they forget about it. It’s a conspiracy.
As an extra bonus, the weight loss program starts in the morning.
However, I am now downloading the first episode of the new Red Dwarf so things could be a lot worse.
