Awesome ACW wargames table (or scenery)

Vastly superior to anything I ever tried on that field… seen in Facebook… Congratulations!

I am first and foremost a collector of Toy Soldiers (of course that includes wargames minis)… terrain has never been my forte… rather schematic I am (you need all sorts…)… see Napoleon or Waterloo Posts in this same web page or Blog and you will see what I mean… not landscaping for me (I did that as a job also so in a way it is probably easy to understand why I did not wanted to get too much involved in this side of the hobby… and of course also a matter of priorities I always chose to buy more “toy soldiers”… MY priorities…

Cheers.

Just a pic of 25/28mm

Cover pic of a web page in Facebook… rather good if you ask me.

Ancients is a period I have played in a few occasions due to my initial introduction to the hobby (METAURO – GREAT BATTLES OF THE WORLD), experienced wargamers tend to use metal spears (or sarissas for that matter) instead of lead alloys to avoid bending and eventually broken “things”. This pic is a fine example of that practice.

25/28mm perfection…

Francesco Thau Collection… as seen in Facebook

French Napoleonic Light Infantry I guess… the level of painting and finish is Militay Modeling quality… a grat joy for the owner. Excellent basing too BTW.

On the other hand this kind of craftsmanship applied to 28mm was also one of the reasons behind my crisis with that scale (for me Military Modeling was another field)… not the main one (that was Big Battles)… but certainly I did not have the steady hand, eyesight or time to paint at this level… I was already sorry to see other people handling my wargames figures with due care … so imagine if they were like this!

Deep congratulations on a job well done!

Post Scriptum: If you want to see the efforts of my painting (MINIFIGS mainly) go the Post Napoleon or Waterloo… you shall understand what I mean.

Fantastic Diorama

British Square seen in Facebook… looks like the Camel Corps

At Abu Klea there never was an all round attack of the Square… but who cares! this is magnificent!… did’nt see Burnaby but he must be there of course… No idea of the scale of the minis but they look quite big… 28mm upwards not discarding 54mm.
