Butterfly Mode

 After a few commissions, tartan and all, I gave into my internal butterfly and flitted over some neglected projects occupying space on my playing table.

First up is the Earl of Northampton's Regiment of Foot.

A free sprue with Wargames Illustrated Magazine with a sample from Warlord Games EPIC ECW.

Here they are on on non-standard 60x60 MDF bases (Warbases) waiting for some dressing.

The figures are 13.5mm from foot to eyeline or 15mm and gave me a chance to experiment with some contrast paints.

The latest addition to my Boxer rebellion collection is another Chinese house; roof partially tiled and back in the 'must finish this' pile.

I fully painted the interior (didn't need to) but I did.

A farm building to go with my EPIC ACW collection.

My version of the Louisiana Tigers (just a battalions worth).

You can just about see the striped trousers (pants).

I have a few EPIC ACW painted in more regular colour schemes.

Some 28mm Elves (in brown) for LOTR collection (an eBay item tarted up).

Some Men of Gondor for the same collection.

My Pendraken 10mm British 7YW collection, rebased and up for sale soon.

Eight Regiments of Horse, Dragoons, Light Dragoons and Dragoon Guards and some infantry with ordnance.

I have some Russians and French in the pipeline.

I have since picked up another big commission so better get a move on.

Jacobites - City of Edinburgh Regiment

 John Roy Stewart leads his men past a rank of scoundrels, neer-do-wells and ruffians. At least his men are gentlemen from Edinburgh

Apologies for the poor lighting, I must get a photo-booth one day.

The figures are all by Crann Tara.

Anyone spot the head swap here.

The chaps in blue are from the Manchester Regiment and the redcoats from wherever.

Boxer Rebellion - First Army Unit

 I cleared away some of the tabletop clutter to make way for my first unit of Chinese soldiers for my Boxer Rebellion Project.

The figures are by Victorious Miniatures.

The MDF buildings are by Warbases.

All painting is by me.

I hope to hand paint a dragon standard for this unit. Might take more than one go.

I have a rabble of regular (common or garden) Boxers in the pipeline.
