The last game using the League of Augsburg forces was fought whilst home. I did not take part but 'umpired' instead as we had 4 players plus me. We used our 'go to' set of Warlord's Pike and Shotte.The game pitted an Allied army who had to try and take the town and drive off the French, they failed!The guys who actually rolled the dice and moved the figures appeared to have a good time and the rules played very well.Now the eye candyFrench infantry brigadeDutch cavalry brigade, including the horse guards(light hats) and Swedes in Dutch service, in the foreground.The Wild Geese...Irish brigade in French service.French cavalry brigadeThe French holding the village, dragoons on the right and Guarde Swisse in the foreground.The figures are the fantastic Pendraken range and the buildings are pre painted 6mm Russian style that I bought off of EBay

Last Sunday I joined a big refight of battle of Antietam. Some time ago Michael gave me his 10mm ACW collection, for a better use. It is Union infantry together with a guns. We used this figures so far only once and I was more than happy to use them again. In the game was involved 9 players plus umpire. For the game we used The Altar of Freedom rules. It was my first time with them.W ostatnią niedzielę dołączyłem do odtworzenia bitwy pod Antietam. Jakiś czas temu Michael podarował mi jego kolekcję do Wojny secesyjnej w skali 10mm, dla lepszego jej wykorzystania. Są to siły unii, piechota z artylerią. Jak do tej pory tych figurek użyliśmy tylko raz i gdy nadarzyła się okazja ponownego ich wykorzystania, byłem bardziej niż szczęśliwy. W grę zaangażowanych było 9 graczy plus prowadzący. Do gry użyliśmy zasad The Altar of Freedom. Było to moje z nimi pierwsze spotkanie.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: From main book.UMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Sandy GillespieSCENERY/SCENERIA: Sandy Gillespie, Jack Glanville,&nbs
Hello! I would like to invite you to watch the units of imperial shooters for Warmaster. Models are of course 10 mm scale. The figures are grouped into three units, each with its own colour theme. I think it’s worth to pay attention to the bases. It took a lot of time to make them carefully in this scale. Commission painting services – email@example.com
Tomb Kings project has recently been completed. So it’s time for another army in a miniature 10 mm scale. It will be an army of the Empire, full of pikemen, mages, cavalry and shooters. Some of the models are classic GW designs, many of them will come from independent manufactories. In first post I would like to show you a few commanders. For some of them we have prepared small dioramas. Below gallery Commission painting – firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello! I’m publishing today the last post with Tomb Kings army for Warmaster. In the two previous entries you could have a look at individual units. Below you can see a few photos of commanders’ bases and a group shot. I must admit that it was nice to return to the desert climate. I’m curious if in Age of Sigmar this faction will be resurrected one day Painting orders -email@example.com
Welcome to the new month! As announced, I am continuing to publish photos of the Tomb Kings army for the Warmaster system. The models are in 10mm scale Here you can find chariots, warmachines and a few special units. Despite so many years, sculptures can still enjoy the eye. A great advantage of WM is the number of figures that appear on the table – it allows you to create battles of really big momentum. Personally, I am most tempted by the ancient or medieval variant. Only when to find the time for it all…. Nevertheless, I invite you to watch this small gallery. Enjoy! Commission painting – firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to welcome you in the new project – Tomb Kings Warmaster army! It would seem that this wargaming system, long abandoned by the official manufacturer, has already died a long time ago. Nothing more wrong! He lives and has a surprisingly good life – just drop into the thematic groups on Facebook to discover how lively and dedicated community stands behind the game. There are regular tournaments, leagues and events in England… The whole series will have three entries. In the first one you will see basic units such as infantry, cavalry and archers. In the second one there will be beasts and special units, while in the last one I will present the heroes and the whole army. Models are original figures, which can still be found on many popular auction services. In total, you can see several hundred miniatures on a 10 mm scale. This is a challenge for the eye and for the brush and I can’t wait to present you with other, even more interesting projects and photos…. But about
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONEThe first post of the year is the last game of 2018, it is also the third game in the Warlord Games Black Powder series, a game of Pike and Shotte. Now we have played all three books I must admit I really enjoy they way the games play and how much fun we have with them. For a guy like me the conformity of rule books over the three periods just adds to the fun.This year we will be trying Hail Caesar with Fantasy additions based on the Facebook Group 'Shadow Storm'As for this game it features armies of the late 17th Century battling in Europe, the army for the Sun King fighting the league of allies. So this fits in right at the end of the period covered by 'Pike and Shotte' book. We used the regiment as a single unit and did not divide the pike and shotte elements.All the figures are the fantastic Pendraken 10mm League of Augsburg range and are painted and owned by yours truly. So pictures...........A partial view of the battlefield, an 6x4 table showing the A
Just a very quick update, only one unit of Russian Cuirassiers, Prince Fedorovich.Again the standard Russian Cuirassier uniform.
I have not painted 10mm Seven Years War for ages but a few packs fell in to my hands out of my 'lucky dip box' (I bag my figures for my ongoing projects into units and put them all into a big plastic tub and blind pic what to paint). It just so happens that I got three bags in a row this time around.The whole batch. In front are 5 Russian Generals. The Novotroiskiy Cuirassier, now all Russian cuirassiers in this period look the same. Buff coats, red saddle cloths and black cuirass. The only thing that marks the regiments apart are the colours of their standards, this regiments colour is green.The 2nd and 3rd Battalions of the Observation Corps Grenadiers. the Observation Corps wore standard infantry uniform except for their boots, they had been issued with black dragoon boots, the dragoons where being reorganised at the start of the war. All figures are from Pendraken, my only (very small) moan, more of a exhale is the cast on flags and this is only because I am no
Whilst at home I managed to play a large game of Seven Years War in 10mm at PAW.The field was occupied by a Prussian Army confronted by a combined Russian and Austrian force.We used the new edition of Black Powder, BP2.The table was 8 foot by 4 foot and the armies numbered over 50 battalions, with over 1000 foot figures. Then of course we had the cavalry.The long view, AustroRussian on the left and Prussian on the rightMass Russian cavalry on the right wingLine and lines of red coated RussiansThe Austrians on the leftPrussian left wing cavalryPrussian centerPrussian right cavalryAustrians and Prussians clash in the centerOverview of the centerRussians on the hillAustrians and Prussians clash over the hedgesThe game came to an end too soon, so a marginal victory for the AustroRussians but it was a great game to play.BP2, with army list additions from Olicanlad (check out his great blog http://olicanalad.blogspot.com/)I love playing large games, to me this is what wargaming is all about....hence my aim of
Another, 'non project' and something I have wanted to do for quite some time. Originally I had planned to use Pendraken miniatures but van Dyck figures (http://vandyckmodelsandfigurines.be/index.php/home.html) have started to release a new range of WSS figures. So I picked up a couple of bags of basic infantry, suitable for French and Spanish and gave them a test paint.These representing the Spanish Regiment Zuniga, from Brigade Zuniga, Divison Birkenfeld.I did not have time to pick up the command packs before I came to work so I will buy these once home.The figures themselves are very nicely cast, no flash and very simple to paint, which suits my style.I look forward to expanding the collection as van Dyck expand the range.
Hello everyone.I'm finally back after quite a long time it seems. To be honest with you, I went through a phase where painting did'nt matter much to me, and blogging as well since it was all about painting and gaming. I hope my return will be more perm...
