Continental Militia

A few weeks ago I completed a commission with an 18th Century theme. This post is the first unit from that project.

The unit is painted as Continental Militia from the American War of Independence, or American Revolution, or Rebellion or The First American Civil War - depending on your perspective :-)

The figures are 28mm metals from Perry Miniatures. I have painted them in "campaign" appearance - that is, dirty, dusty & somewhat shabby :-)

An enjoyable project, especially with these lovely sculpts.

I lose track of what I have posted on my blog and what I haven't. Since I have been using Facebook I tend to do my initial posting there, followed by a more complete post on my blog, after this I sometimes share pictures on the Lead Adventure Forum. Anyway, I am fairly sure I have not shared these pictures on my blog before.... :-) 

First up is an Anglo Saxon standard bearer from Gripping Beast - lots of pictures of this from different angles :-) The banner is from Little Big Man Studios, the shield design is freehand.

Secondly, a casualty base converted from a Blacktree Designs Viking raider type - he has been given a greenstuff beard, chopped off his base, and skewered with a brass rod spear.

Thirdly is a pony from Gripping Beast, useful as either set dressing or part of a scenario.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I think my next post might involve some American War of Independence miniatures, or who knows, maybe something Middle Earth? ;-)

All the best,

An Anglo-Saxon Project - Commission Part I...and a new Group...

Here are some pictures of a project I have been working on over the last few months...
Part II will consist of the armoured Thegns.
Miniatures are from Black Tree Designs & Gripping Beast.
Shields are mostly freehand.

I have been part of creating a new Middle Earth Wargaming group on Facebook. This group is non rules, non figure scale, non manufacturer specific. The only thing that is specific is the Genre & "Period" - Tolkien's Middle Earth - anything from 1st Age to 4th Age is cool. So whether you play/collect 6mm, 10mm, etc., even 54mm - then this is a great place to share what you've been up to.

All the best,
