There you are even grass added (but for a Regiment).

Maybe tomorrow I will be able to finish them… flags and all.

A real ordeal… I am getting too old for this… I lack the patience needed… sorely needed… next time it will be the usual painters… I am done with it myself!

Enjoy.

Not quite a nice pic… will do better when finished!

Closing Time!

I’ve been doing this for years now… and in a way it is quite futile… followers of this Blog must know that from now on Saturdays and Sundays I will not Post. And this is just the first step… in slowing down.

AND as I am going to strike the 500.000 visits mark (including robots)… I am gonna end Posting Facebook pics you can go to Facebook to see for yourself:

Go to Facebook, search for Scott Lesch, Graham Hilditch, Alan Harrison, Gian Lucca Cocchi, Daniel Hodgson, James Opie, Tony Dilley, REPLICA, Andrew Stevenson, Antony Spencer, Imperial Miniatures, Dorset Soldiers, Baccus, Peter Berry, John Firth,John Clarke, Bertolini, Glenn Robert Pearce, God’s Own Scale, New Buckenham Historical Wargamers etc. Groups like: H.G.Wells Little Wars, www.mytoysoldiersandme.com, Playmobil Pictures and Dioramas, 6MM wargaming, W.Britains, A Gentleman’s War etc etc etc… Just browse my Posts and then go to Facebook… I am sure some of you already do.

What I intent is just Post my Own Collection or work in this Blog… including Books recommendations or reviews. This transition will go smoothly I guess, it has been a pleasure to entertain you (if I did at all).

But the scope of this Blog is turning to a more intimate diary (and no daily entries) and only when I find I have something worth to say IMHO.

Have my Best Regards!

Not bad as an avatar…

New Buckenham Historical Wargamers goes Ancient… (II)

Ancients were a passion early on my days of wargaming, a classical education… plenty of books to read…

Plenty of lore and legend…

And above all the distance from it!

Later I could not stand close steel combat and found it too harsh!

Enjoy the pics!

Greek Hoplites
Persians
Greek Mercenaries on the Persian Army I guess…

Well, glued in place for a start!

Only a matter of adding texture to the stands and pop goes the whistle!

It has been a long project with delays fault of the Postal services!… I have learned a lot about that by now. If I ever do a project again in 6MM (Do it Myself I mean) I would have to order quite ahead of the time of implementation.

Now the Brigade of Guards in the Crimea is finally on its last stages… of course the flags will help a lot!

Will keep you posted when finished properly!

Enjoy!

Scots Fusiliers (Queen Victoria’s pets)… no plume!
Working in many things at the same time of course!
