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…
Excellent Modeling seen in Facebook
Again another Napoleonic “DIORAMA”… well they are very very very good… and that’s that. In fact that is a wargame if I am not mistaken…
Fantastic Prussian Landhwer as seen in Facebook
Guess what… I’ll never be acused to do not caring for you and doing a proper job of it.. so here it is a third post today and the next would be in Thursday I guess…
Wonderful minis if you are interested in my opinion…
I do not know if it is a melee or a traffic jam (envious I am)… in the grand manner to be sure!
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).
Pic of an actual wargame with pieces of art (IMHO)… there are people there who still do it!
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)
Looks like the picture (or a still-frame) of a Movie uh? damn clever craftsmanship if you ask me… British Wargames Conventions are a must go place someday somehow somewhere… only attended a couple myself Salute (London) and To The Redoubt (Eastbourne)… a fantastic experience IMHO.
Not more because I live about 900 miles away from them…
The British obsession with the Nile is paramount even today! (among wargamers that is)
Today’s pic is a reminder of what we really do… nothing to do with REAL WAR who should be banished IMHO… those unable to distinguish between those concepts are to be pitied. I guess genetically programed to fight to survive it is very difficult to do not fall into the Von Clausewitz’s trap … it is not right to pursue diplomacy and politics by “other means” and that’s that.
Like his father before him… how to update toy Soldiers to Military Modeling quality by the clever use of Milliput, matt paint and brushes.
They do not come any better.
Walking the thin line… between Toy Soldier and Military Modeling.
Simon Scott Jenkins is the author of this magnificent piece of scenery. Not much to add… crafts surprise me every other day!
Rather charming if you ask me… leg before wicket and all that!
Another view of it!… superb.
