Dorset/Imperial “new” castings.

Hits: 17

I have a lot of ideas and pics to post this days… but those arrived yesterday and have got priority no matter what… My FFL order to complete an Army is underway and in good hands… simply ask Antony!… he will deliver… this is as silly as commending a good Restaurant… afterwards no way to book a table for you!… but he deserves it in spades… ask Scott Lesch if in doubt!

Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do.

Castings from DORSET/IMPERIAL (again)

Hits: 17

I must say all this posts are against my own interests… my orders get delayed and delayed because new orders arrive daily at DORSET/IMPERIAL HQ’s… LOL but I must admit they deserve “the plug”… those lovely figures once painted would be proud pieces of a collector… no doubt about that… in the meantime I guess I would have to email Antony asking what about mine? LOL (again)… now seriously one must be patient dealing with the world of conversions and Toy Soldiers “a la carte”… it is not the same to ask for ready made sets than to ask for special pieces… this take time… but the results are worth the wait!

Enjoy!

A Dorset/Imperial Conversion for a german customer…
Other conversions using the same basic body…

Spaniards

How the glory fades with time… for nearly two centuries Spanish Infantry was the undisputed ruler of the European battlefields… not that many remember that at all mind…

Economical ruin, lack of manpower, corruption… you name it… the conclusion of all Empires…

Excellent pic nonetheless.

Enjoy!

Spanish Tercio (maybe by F. Thau but not sure) it lacks the arquebusiers on front and flanks but that would be asking too much I guess…

The Windsor’s

From the vault… The Royals in Household Division finery… I have kept this pic for many days without knowing how to classify it!

Lets say (to be in the safe side) that HM The Queen Elizabeth II deserved a pic too, as it is she is also in my collection… and in many others I guess…

Enjoy.

Excellent Modeling seen in Facebook

To be fair… some still do!

Two posts today because I won’t be able to post for a couple of days… getting tired of carrying my personal computer around just to give you your daily dose of lead!

Enjoy the pic below because this is a dying part of the hobby… whohas the time and money to indulge in those pieces of artwork to wargame with eludes me completely (well not completely… but a lot).

Lucky them!

Pic of an actual wargame with pieces of art (IMHO)… there are people there who still do it!

There you are… I did see it coming…

Wonderful work!… useful for wargaming?… I guess not at all… but at the current prices of wargames figures in 28mm I understand the trend.

Happily for all of you I have never tried to be an “influencer” (chicks do that)… I do not care at all what is what you are doing with your hobby as long as you have fun with it!

Quite static piece if you ask me.

Enjoy for what it is!

Another example of Military Modeling in 28mm… as seen in facebook… the chap got a medal for this one or other similar published there… Congratulations! (suspect the work is from Francesco Thau)

Matchless…

Sometimes I have to post something out of the ordinary… not my expertise at all… but as long as you have a pair of eyes… you can not pass over it without comenting… it just feels alive… congratulations to the author… seen in Facebook.

I can paint Toy Soldiers style, I can paint wargames figures to a reasonable standard… even in 6mm… BUT… I can not paint like this at all… probably not even modeling at that level… so my hat is off and I heartily aplaude!

Enjoy.

No words needed…
