I have a few pictures for you today. I should have more soon as I'm only showing you what I finished. There's quite a few more almost done.
First are 4 more Peninsular British Line. I painted them as the 6oth because they had both red coats and rifles in green. To my dismay I recently read that the all rifle units were in the peninsular. The only blue cuff units I could dig up I think are maybe the King's German Legion, the Swiss Roll-Dollins, and the French traitor unit (can't remember their name right now). Some of those had light blue and not my darker blue. I've painted the around 40 of them now and glued Peninsular heads on them, so they're going to the peninsula regardless.
Here's a willy nilly pic I took to show anyone remotely concerned if they could mix Old Glory Nappies with Perrys. No, you can't, at least not in the same unit, unless the British models are taller than the Prussians.
Before you mentally criticize the next model, realize it was one of the first models I painted around 25-30 years ago, as a kid. I haven't got much better, so feel free to criticize all the other shoddy work. The Nick Lund sculpted (I think) Grenadier brand dwarf is one of the gunners for a giagantic bombard made out of enough lead to make sixty dwarves. Well, he's here because he was terribly chipped and needed rebasing. He might look worse now.
Now that I am rambling about fantasy models, here are two more GW Empire artillery pieces I've finished. They're metal and oldish, I don't know what else to say.
Here's a manlet I painted, I've now got about 20 of them painted now, for a giant siege battle I'm never going to run. The model is from Megaminiatures and the Perry model is there for scale.
I said I was only showing you finished models but I wanted to show you a silly sneak peak of another UNFINISHED random project I'm working on. When I was young and played with 75-100mm plastic army men with kung fu grips, my favorite were the valiant forces of Cobra. I did some scraping of a Target Games (out of business) model and started painting him like Destro. Destro, who for some reason has a metal mask that moves with his facial expressions. I imagine it's mercury based; I've always thought heavy metal poisoning was why the brave Cobra warriors never killed a single JOE.
I'm also painting up some Cobra troopers which would be farther along but the primer I used doesn't hold paint that well and Target models aren't that fun to paint for me.
Thanks for visiting.
love and kisses,
