While I was at Hotlead
this year, i picked up a few things, including a Victrix British light battalion conversion pack(a rare find in person these days, since victrix metal line was sold to brigade) and a warlord ECW cannon & specialist pack.
when exams started , on a whim, i sat down and apinted the cannon team with the gunner specialist from the specialist pack. I had decided to paint something different after the relative monotony of the Peninsular Napoleonics. despite a total lack of opponents I still intend, at some point int the future, to finish my ECW army.
This really is a nice piece, an the addition of the specialist aiming the gun really makes it that much nicer. the Warlord ECW line really is their best offerings. the sculpting is head and shoulders above that of the Napoleonics they've been releasing.
Next is a set of Perry Plastic Carabiniers I painted 2 weeks ago. this is part of my friend Derek's French army. you'll be seeing more of Derek's French as I paint it over the summer.
These were quite nice to paint(as perry miniatures often are). I'll be doing a regiment of these when I eventually do my own French contingent.
and finally is a random photo of my peninsular war British rushing to defensive positions at el matadaro
I had taken some pictures close in on my new fur mat when I set it up for the first time. I got bored 2 weeks ago, and grabbed one of the pics and photoshopped in a background. this is the result.
Stay tuned for more...
