Austrian Napoleonics

I picked up a box of the Strelets 1:72 Allied Staff recently, and have had the opportunity to paint up the Austrian figures from it. This is a great set of figures, with 35 sculpts representing various characters from the Napoleonic era. The Austrian figures are: Emperor Francis, Archduke Charles, Karl Philipp Prince of Schwarzenberg, A General, 2 Senior Officers, an Office, an ADC, and 2 Infantry Officers.


I also finished up one of the British Officers as well:


IF you are interested in the Austrians, they can be purchased here: Ebay Auction

Thanks again for looking :-)

Zulu War continued

Further to my earlier post ( I have been working on my Zulu War project in amongst all the other things I have been painting, and have a few units finished up. I had originally planned to have them based for Principles of War, but part way through decided to base them singly so I can use them for the Sword and the Flame, and will also be using them for Black Powder

Command units for BP:


Royal Artillery Gatling Gun and Naval Brigade Gardiner Gun:


Mounted Infantry and a Regiment of Infantry (probably the 80th):


I've also completed a couple of practice figures for a couple more regiments, namely the KRRC and the 91st Highlanders:


Lots more to come for this project, so watch this space! :-)

American War of Rebellion part 2

Working slowly through the lead and plastic piles, I finished off some more of my American War of Rebellion (Independence if you're that way inclined! lol), which leaves me with just one more lot to do in the form of some of Perry's British infantry.

 I felt like doing these wearing brown coats, as opposed to the "traditional" blue. I like how they turned out! All figures are Wargames Foundry (apologies for the poor quality of some of the pics. I'm trying to adjust to a new camera! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! lol):

Thanks again for looking :-)
