1st Battalion, Little Russia Grenadier Regiment

I am making good progress this spring on my long neglected Napoleonic project.  This time we have the 1st battalion of the Little Russia grenadier regiment.  To be honest, I had not set out to model this particular unit so I really have no idea if this looks 'correct' in terms of uniform.  It is the Little Russia regiment because Warlord kindly included flags in the box for this unit.When I started my Russians I really knew nothing about Napoleonic Russians - how to configure the units, how to paint the uniforms, what are the flags all about?  Part of the joy of historical wargaming is the research and discovery of a new period or topic. Needless to say I have been doing a lot of research all-be-it on the internet.  Since I have been working on grenadiers that has been my main focus.  These figures are painted in the 1809-14 style with the old style shako and large plume.  I painted the jackets more inline with my understanding of the 1812 uniform (1812 being my area of

The Dogs of War

Another small set of "scatter terrain animals" in this post today.I had these models for ages, and finally gotten around to restoring and repainting them after they served in my Chaos Dwarf / Hobgoblin force a decade ago.A variety of breeds, these 28mm scale dogs are great to populate villages in games of SAGA and the likes.Nothing to spectacular, but I adore the English Bulldog ;-)

40k – Chaos Warhound Titan

In today’s post I would like to present to you one of the biggest models that we had the opportunity to prepare in our Studio Chaos Warhound Titan is definitely a big “toy” – it came to us already assembled and intended to be repainted (from very dark brown). An additional challenge was the fact that it was assembled in the wrong position and could not stand on the table. We decided to make him an oval stage stand with dimensions of 30 cm x 20 cm. It was cut out of HDF and enriched with some stones and wrecks of Space Marines vehicles. After attaching to it, the model became stable and can no longer be easily knocked over. Painting such a large figurine is a big challenge – you have to divide it into smaller parts and paint it comprehensively. It took me a lot of time. The sculpture of the model is still excellent and defends itself in comparison with the new models. The slightly clumsy, coarse appearance of the machine perfectly fits the atmosphere of the forty millennium. I

[EN/PL] First Crusade. Historical background. Part I / I Wyprawa Krzyżowa. Tło historyczne. Część I (V&V Miniatures: Crusaders 3 set #1

Hi everyone!The next week, the weather in Poland resembles the hell that awaited the Crusaders at Hattin in 1187. It is an unmerciful heat, the dyes dry up and the swarms of mosquitoes suck your blood.Well, I already have an introduction and with this smooth metaphor I can go to this today's entry ;-))        I took another set from V&V Miniatures for the workshop. This time "Crusaders 3"box, with the title Crusaders.Models, as I have mentioned many times, are made of resin and look perfectly.Beautiful quality and a multitude of details only emphasize the values of figurines.If you dont know V&V Miniatures yet, check:https://vminiatures.com/https://www.facebook.com/groups/vminiatures/Previous entries with the Pilgrims' models from V&V Miniatures were about the events of the so-called The People's Expedition / Folk Crusade, which immediately preceded the First Crusade.The history of first folk crusade.

THE GREAT GAME 2019 WATERLOO REPLAYED (1).

Hi! Today first photo relation from the biggest historical wargame ever, with more than 22 000 figures and more than 100 players from over the world. That is happening in Glasgow. It will be continued tomorrow as well, so if you are in Glasgow, jump into Kelvin Gallery and experience it by yourselves. I play the role of one of the umpires and under my supervision is battlefield from the west of Papelote Farm up to halfway to Le Haye Sainte Farm. So far French managed to push British of their ridge and prepare to break their lines. It is getting very interesting. I'm very curious about how it's going to finish. On the other parts of the battlefield, we have some first Prussian units arrived and I think that French push out British of the Hougoumont, so everything can happen. Below you have some pictures from the first day.Witam! Dzis pierwsza fotorelacja z największej, dotychczas rozegranej gry, z użyciem ponad 22 000 figurek i przy udziale ponad 100 graczy z całego świata. To się odbywa w Glasgow. Będzie kont

In the first, Peter faced Campbell and Alasdair. After some initial successes, Peter managed to flank Roman cavalry, but then the brave Roman marines broke the first falangist unit and create a massive gap in Greek lines. Soon after that more Greek unit gets broken and in very short time whole Peter's army lost its morale and disappear from the battlefield. In the meantime, Mich

Steady progress on the first batch of Caesarian Romans from Gripping Beast.Pilums at the ready, the first troopers have only their shields to finish before varnishing. As previously mentioned these have been painted by blocking base colours and then washing with Army Painter Strong Tone wash. The bronze, flesh and tunic have then been highlighted with the base colour to lift key areas of the figures. Below, the first command figures prior to the final colours being blocked and the washed. The paints used for the are:Flesh: Foundry Flesh BTunic: Foundry Scarlet AArmour/metal: Citadel ChainmailBronze: Vallejo Old GoldLeather: Foundry Dark Flesh A or Foundry Buff Leather ALion head dresses: Foundry Rawhide BWeapon shafts: Foundry Spearshaft Brown BAnother eight are well on their way to being fully base coated in this style giving the project sone momentum. More work in progress to follow shortly. Cheers for now.

More HO-scale buildings

No gaming for me this week (school events intervened) but I did finish up some painting. I'm almost finished the fourth season of Gotham, so I'm back in a superhero frame of mind.A few month back, I picked up a few more HO-scale railway buildings for my Gotham layout. One of the better ones was JDs Furniture. The building needed some additional painting and washing.The most interesting part is the lovely (and brittle) fire escape down the side. I also painted a random factory of some kind.I finally ran out of decals so I broke down and ordered some online (along with some graffiti decals). I'll have to finish this building up when they come in.I also knocked off this oil tank, which will make a useful scenario objective and LOS block.I've also been making progress on finishing off the British rebasing in my War of 1812 project. I hope to have these done by the end of the month--there was quick a lot of paint touch-ups to do.
