15mm


15mm Russia 1812, again....

The first new regiment for a long stalled(over a year) Napoleon's invasion of Russian.This is the Neapolitan 7th(Royal African) Regiment.Obviously the troops from Naples were reputed to be the worst in the Grande Armee but I don't mind fielding them.These figure were bought from a good friend of mine, Mike at Stonewall Figures in Cornwall.  He sells them at a great price and they come in pre-painted regimental bags.  All I have done is touch them up to fit in with my collection and given them a coat of Army Painter Dark Tone.

15mm Marian Roman Commission

The final batch of the Roman commission has been delivered and I have started to apply the pigment.  The only thing that needs to be bought is a small Roman marching fort to act as baggage.The first additional elements are another unit of Roman cavalry, two units thorakai mercenaries and a unit of Illyrian skirmishers.These are obviously based for FOG and are all Essex figures

15mm Raphia Project

Yes the project has been going on for some time and yet again I say it's nearly complete......one more cavalry unit and another 14 elephants.But here are 4 elephants to add to the appropriate stables......The first two elephants are going to the Seleucid army.  They are actually listed as Hellenistic Elephants but I feel will fit in well the army and offer a little variety.  Also I can use them for other Successor armies...These are Ptolemaic, actually Xyston Carthaginian elephants with a Greek crew, but as they feel and look right, I'm more than happy.    These miniatures look shinny in the pictures but are actually matt in real life.

Gaming at the club

We had 7 guys out at the club this week with three games on deck. Jonathan and Scott played some Commands and Colors Machine Guns.I think this was the Verdun scenario, with the Germans advancing over the Meusse River? I left before it was done, but it looks like the Germans were just running out of troops.Dan hosted Terry and Richard in a game of Strange Aeons. RCMP and heroes versus cultists.The cultists were selling some naked townies for meat to some little guys with big teeth. Gravel Road Cowboys had to rescue them.I left before this game reached conclusion. At that point, the body count looked like it was favouring Sergeant Preston and his kung-fu fighters.A very pretty game that Dan did a nice job of putting on.Chen and I played Battlestar Galactica with Newtonian movement. BSG is basically the same as Wings of War (movement on cards, simultaneous selection) and you can play it with cinematic movement or with Newtonian rules.Newtonian movement allows you to pivot your ship away from your direction of tr

How Far Jerusalem 1

The start of two armies in one; Late Crusaders for both DBA and ADLG. The miniatures are all from Gladiator Miniatures formerly owned by Black Hat Figures and now by Fighting 15s. These have all been a part of this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge IX and have been painted using block colours and a wash of Agrax Earthshade for tone.First two stands of spearmen showing Brother Knights and Brother Sergeants from the period between 1259 and 1273 when Brother Knights wore red tunics and Brother Sergeants remained in black. The papal bull was not popular and eventually over turned so that all Brothers wore red. The decals are water slide transfers and are from VVV. Going back to water slide transfers is quite refreshing and they still apply well if Micro Sol and Set are used sparingly. The shields are 15mm scale and the tabards are 10mm in scale.Crossbow and archers again from the sergeants.Spearmen and crossbowmen as they will be on the table for ADLG - the double depth is visual

Kung Foo Panda

Todays entry is small and is just a little bit of whimsey. I came across this model last year and couldn't resist buying it, just for fun. The Panda is 19mm tall (including the hat) and is made by Bombshell Miniatures. I've not heard of them before but a quick look at their website shows an interesting and eclectic mix of fantasy, sci-fi and steampunk miniatures in various scales. The handful of points I'll get for this figure isn't going to rock my final score by any massive amount, but it was great fun to put together and paint.The blossom-covered tree I found in a local model shop and all it needed was some filler (and a dab of paint) to turn the wireframe into something better resembling a knarled wood trunk. I also knew I had some suitable bases I could probably use and sure enough, I found this one. Its resin but that's about all I can tell you. I have no idea when or where I bought it, I'm just glad that it has finally found a use.In order to fix the Panda to the base

Wierd World War...War Without End

I manged to buy, on EBay, some long out of production Clockwork Goblin 15mm War Without End, a weird world war genre which became the 28mm Konflict '47.I have quite a few German walkers and a few of the infantry along with a small amount of US walkers and infantry. (I am always on the lookout for more if any of my readers have a hidden unwanted stock lol ;-)).  I will be adding later war conventional forces as well.Here are some test pieces for the German heavy infantry, as you can see they are heavily armed with MG43s as their standard weapons.

The Battle of d'Artenay-Pas-Vraiment - 1870 A Franco-Prussian batrep

Last weekend the Rejects got together for our first Franco-Prussian game in 2 years. Here's a link to the last game in 2017. The figures are owned by Reject Richard, so he reffed the game, which meant Postie would get a very usual game where he wasn't in charge!!!It should have been a 10 o'clock start but 2 naughty boys turned up late!!!! Lee (link to Lee's post) and Surj. Lee got stuck the wrong side of the QE2 bridge due to high winds while Surj completely forgot about the game!!!Anyway 2 hours later than scheduled me and James picked out the French, while Surj, Postie and Lee picked out the Prussians.The SetupThis is a hypothetical scenario based on the military situation at the time. August and September of 1870 have seen the irresistible onslaught of the Prussian War Machine against an ill-prepared and poorly lead French Army. The Prussians and their allies under the direction on Moltke have swept the Imperial French forces from the North and have commenced the siege of Paris. Ho

The Battle of d'Artenay-Pas-Vraiment - 1870

On Sunday I braved high winds and terrible traffic to join the Rejects for a game in Posties Shed-o-War. However, for a change, our leader wasn't running the game, the honour instead falling to Reject Richard. He had brought his excellent figure collection along for a Seven Years War game using the They Died for Glory rules. This is the second time I have played these rules and both times we have had an excellent game, even if the result wasn't what I had hoped for. In fact, I enjoyed them so much I have bought a copy for myself. The SetupThis is a hypothetical scenario based on the military situation at the time. August and September of 1870 have seen the irresistible onslaught of the Prussian War Machine against an ill-prepared and poorly lead French Army. The Prussians and their allies under the direction on Moltke have swept the Imperial French forces from the North and have commenced the siege of Paris. However, the Teutonic hoard has failed to destroy the armies of Napoleon III,

AHPC9: DAK Infantry, Command and vehicles

Presenting the final submission for my DAK Army - Panzergrenadiers! Infantry (with each 3 squads each separated into their rifle and LMG groups) a Platoon HQ squad, both light and medium mortars in support, and a flammenwerfer trooper in case I want to field the platoon as Sappers.  Forged in Battle (FiB) figures. For early desert war encounters I will mount them in trucks as Shutzen but in later engagement during the Tunisia/Torch era they will be Gepanzerte Grenadiers riding fancy new SdKfz 251 halftracks (PSC Hanomags, FiB Command variant) Here is the Kampfgruppe Kommander and his Command halftrack (FiB figures) To keep the boys in fighting shape, the medical support team: a medic, stretcher bearers and a SdKfz 251 ambulance variant. Taking these in Battlegroup increases the resilience of your force, so they have a real, on table effect.  I haven't really in this capability before and am looking forward to trying them out. Combination of Peter Pig and FiB figures, Ambulance

Back to the Brushes 218

As the last weeks of this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge start the sudden realisation that hardly anything has been submitted.This will soon change with the first of several batches being posted this week.But first, some random work in progress pictures of current painting.Command stands for the 15mm Crusaders.Some Late Saxons from 1st Corps? These are being speed painted; block base colours snd washed with strong tone. No more than twenty minutes painting on each.The rebasing continues with all painted Germanic Tribes and Hun cavalry waiting for their bases to be textured, dry brushed and flocked. This time round all of the Late Romans, Germanic Tribes and Huns will have the same basing flock and tufts. This will enable all of them to be used as a part of the same or different armies. SimplesThinking that starting this during the AHPC IX wasn't the best thing to do.On top of the amp, there are some Undead, Moors, Germanic tribes and Late Romans as well.More to follow shortly along with some compl
