More British Guards

Hits: 26

Somehow a monotonous subject, but as the Imperial Guard Grenadiers the most popular ever with collectors and wargamers alike. You can not buldt a 54mm toy soldier collection eluding those I guess… neither your wargaming Napoleonic French Army will do without the other… that’s how it is and would be. Enjoy

Quite a rather good pic!

More “B” series…

I am a Guards fan since young (I was born very young as Groucho Marx used to say)… somehow the pic seems to have catch the Guards with quite a slopiness rifles stance angle if you know what I mean… if they were in my collection some bending and regluing of arms would have been in order. But you need all sorts you know… Very nice pic. Enjoy.

Great minis and scenery… always thought the Guards got to carry their rifles at a steady angle…

A Wargame the good old way!

There was a time I did just that (see elsewhere in this webpage) amassed hundreds of Minifigs which I did paint myself laboriously and at the end of it I gloriously wargamed Waterloo with my younger brother!… those were the days I am afraid… I got a big crisis in regard of the scale and the table needed and sold them all (they live in Switzerland nowadays). I thought that my wargaming days were ended… and somehow they were… I still collect but not much of my time in the hobby is employed in wargaming at all… I do collect wargames minis in 6mm and have a lot of mega-scenarios in my head… but only in my head… I do not know if I ever will put them to practice anymore…

Wargame as good as they come…

Lancers

Always have had a soft spot for lancers… do not ask me why… I do not know for sure… maybe the fluttering pennants?

The pis is part of a much larger collection… see the Highlander Pipers on the extreme right.. And the “marks” on the shelve on the left indicate the old presence of foot toy soldiers… I think I have already posted other pics from the collector but today I have no time to check… Stefano Allorini! (have checked). Enjoy

6 mm

You will excuse the featureless terrain… but the Afghan plain is “plain”. The object of the pic is to show you one of the most important bonus of 6mm (God’s Own Scale they say) no secure flanks… room to manoeuvre… and a sense of space and shooting distances you do not have on the bigger scales (of course you can. paint more detail in 10,15,28mm you name it) but I love the sense of proportion (an urbanist by academic formation I like the smaller scales matter of fact). Just to make you think a bit about where wargaming is going nowadays… for better or for worse…
