28mm Commission - 54mm Hinton Hunt based up.

 A lovely chap cannot paint any more, so he has asked me to paint items to help finish his collection.

More of Tom's 54mm (not 42 as previously advertised) based up. As ever, I claim no credit for these, except the bases. Bonus points awarded for correct identification of all units (points will be awarded to all those who send their entries on a stamped addressed enelope...).


The figures are fairly randoly picked by me at first, so if you see some that should not go together (like the Russian foot and French officer later), tough!


Told you...


Lancers with a friend




Hussars


Back of them, note the chords (made of fine wire) on the bugle.


Different officers


Tom's detailing on these is so impressive


The drummers weigh a fair amount as those drums are solid metal!


The halbard is cool


Good mix here


Strong characters


Officers


These figures are just lovely


I did strenghten the sword after


The whip is so fine


Thos chap ended up on his own, hope he was not lonely.


Love the details, Tom has done an amazing job on these.


British foot


Again, check those chords on the trumpeteer!


Possibly, 60th foot and a guards officer


I think its 60th as 95th had different trousers?


I can claim a tiny piece of credit on this one, as the hat's headband, flagstaff and socks were not finished.


It's a great figure, the flag feels like (and sounds like) tin to give it stiffness, I'm sure I will be corrected.


Certain his head was here earlier...


More basing up for Tom. 54mm Napoleonics, mostly Hinton Hunt. I can claim no credit for the amazing painting on the figures themselves, which are truely magnificent.


Funny how the poses work out


Some uniform diversity here


The two on the left are paid less than the other two!

 

 Some heavies and gun crews


Back of them


Did not purposily group by colour, honest!


Looking good


Charge!


Artilleryman


 
I take NO credit what so ever for the amazing paint job Tom put in on these 54mm Hinton Hunt Hussar figures. My role in these is simply basing them up to show off their glory.








Where possible, I tried to save Tom's Hinton Hunt labels and reattach them to the display bases






 
They really are magnificent
 
Mixed bag for Tom this time, which finishes* off most of the 7YW for him.

Lovely sculpts


Great animation on the left hand chap with the shovel

Great figures

Off we trot!


Not sure what they are looking at, but they look good while they do it.

 Continuation of Tom's basing and adding flags to some of his work and the rest are figures I painted previously for him.


Chasseurs de Elbe




Yes, I did edge all the flags


Top down


La Marine and Royal Marine units (yes, I did get confused which was which)

The whole batch


Not much elbow room here!

 
Another batch of Tom's figures, which the keen-eyed amoungst you will recognise as figures I have painted preiously. He cannot base up his or my work, and cannot cut straight, so these were returned to me to base up like the others and add the appropriate flags where needed. To be honest, it would have been an absolute joy, if Covid had not turned my brain to mush as I was trying to match flags to poles to bearers! Thankfully, that only lasted a couple of days, and I could happily get on with it after.

Colonial Compagnies de La Marine. Tom built the mound, I prettified it and added poles and flags.


They look splendid now.


Rear view


It's simple, but it works


Standards of the 23rd Foot

The random miniatures in my lead pile thread

Hi all, As the months go on, I am finding more random stuff that does not fit into any catagory is creeping it's way up to the surface of my lead mountain. I decided last year rather than just throw it back like one of Nobby's escaped socks, I would actually paint some of them.   TROLL! Not a big one, but still will hurt Random... A WW2 fox in 28mm A sci-fi fox in 28mm and a mage in 28mm Not the best jobs I'e ever done (the lighting was bad today as I had all the curtains drawn to keep the heat out) but they are out the lead mountain!   Next up, an item that fell off the SE face of the lead pile, a 28mm Viking via Hobby Box, basically a palate cleanser between 10mm batches.   Okay, who is up for something REALLY random! Crimson Skies autogyro Apparently they are awful in the game Pink and green dazzle camo was... NOT MY FAULT! Blame Hammy! Even has room for
