15mm British Foot Guard, Rifles, and Rockets!

The blog has been quiet, but I have been busy as a (bzzz) bee.  John's Waterloo army will have two battalions of foot guards and two battalions of rifles.


3rd Battalion, 1st Foot Guards







2nd Battalion, 2nd Foot Guards







1st Battalion, 95th Rifles







2nd Battalion, 95th Rifles







The AB Miniatures rocket artillery came without actual rocket artillery.  I cannot find any castings for this anywhere in their range, so I broke out the modeling supplies and scratchbuilt a couple of rocket launchers.

Next up are the Dutch and Belgian line infantry regiments!

Long Drought

The blog has been quiet, but not for lack of painting.  I have been putting in a lot of 4-6 hour days at the painting desk, trying to push through two large commissions before the end of summer.  They are progressing, but not nearly as quickly as I had hoped


I hope to have more content for the blog soon.  In the meantime, here are some 6mm ACW troops I painted in December.  I love these little Baccus strips, and I look forward to some day getting them on the table.

The Redcoats Are Here!

324 British line infantry.  Whew.  I am sure it seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I never want to see another red coat again.  So what's up next?  Two battalions of foot guards.
