More 40mm ACW Rebel Infantry

With these 125 figures, the 40mm ACW commission is complete! Carl provided some cloth flags for this batch. A few Foundry command figures are mixed into the firing regiments, and sharp-eyed readers will find a golden retriever and German shepherd mixed in with the troops.

 Now back to your regularly scheduled 15mm Napoleonic programing.

40mm ACW Rebel Artillery and Generals

The 40mm commission I began a couple of years ago is now finished! I have some infantry left to flock, and then they can go in the mail. Carl should have large enough forces for some epic games!

1/72 Austrian Grenadiers

I will have some pictures of my daughters' figures in the near future, but for now, here are some of my own figures I painted with them. These 1/72 soft plastic figures are from HaT Industries.


I primed these white, then put a basic block paint job on them. I used Minwax as a dip.

If boxes such as this had been available 25 years ago, I doubt I ever would have moved to metal gaming figures! It was very nice to be able to make a good looking wargaming unit.
