10mm Great Northern War Swedish forces for a friend.

 First off, five tricorned infantry units, all based for ReG, MeG's renaissance spin-off for Lee.


Mixing Pendraken mk I and mkII flags, thanks Leon for sorting those

Back view

Told you they were Sodermanland! I labelled all the bases as although the units are ROUGHLY similar, they all have subtle differences (hat piping, leg colours, etc)


Top view, grenadiers are from the Pendraken Marlburian ranges

"What do you mean about face?"

Fresh off the blocks today, Upplanders

Eight loose shot, ten close pike for the visual effects.

I like the effect here

I'm not sure all units had grenadiers attached, certainly some were consolidated to assault parties. Lee decided he wanted them intergrated into units, so I enjoyed trying to find their mitre details, Uppland is one I definitely found and is correct.

The line fires.

Player's eye view


I really love their flags, very eye catching (mk 2, type II)

Again, as Lee sees them

Livgardet Tu Fot (oneof the world's longest active units)

How did that get there! Since removed

All five units

That's an A5 container filled already!

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.   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 a passenger/gunner? Vought Raven on approach It just needs a billionare playboy/superhero to pilot it! Shiny! It's like the Liberator, which way does it go? Yes, it's a pusher plane! Many guns   28mm Count Brass and Olodahn the archer,  Tartar giant by Eureka models for my Provancal/Karma

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.

15mm PSC Goths and Huns for Adrian.

 Last year Adrian replumbed my house, in return he gave me a few boxes of PSC Goth and Huns to paint. Almost a horde. Again in muted colours as lower status troops. 8 bases of Huns for Adrian.    Someone is borrowing this weekend, and Adrian can't make it...  In loose oorder so that his others in skirmish can allow him to be flexible Side on Other side Player's eye view   A tent that got delayed due to low stock...   Got the army finished*! *Finished - until he gives me something else to paint! Light horse - Adrian was collecting them that night, so the pva was still wet on the shrubbery. Most muted of all the cavalry due to being less wealthy. Fast, deadly at range, not much good in a stand up fight! Top view The camp, arrived on Monday, finished last night! Mostlly Beuada Pork dinner anyone? Think it's done! Two tents, does it make a camp? Barrels, sacks, pots, pigs do!
