Alan Harrison’s REPLICA Dublin’s Fusiliers!

Hits: 65

Casts from REPLICA are excellent… sometimes one feels privileged when they arrive… because Andrew Stevens is a busy man with a long list of customers!

Keep hoping and waiting because they are worth your time.

Step by step guide.

Something I have tried myself quite recently… modifying ready made casts… it is fun and gratifying. I will not go as far as saying mine are “pieces uniques” but quite original sometimes!

For once this is really FUN!

Danish Royal Guard in winter dress (REPLICA 54MM) by Alan Harrison.

Hits: 46

A subject I always wanted to do (and no time at all I am afraid) I for once find much more nice the winter dress than the summer dress (Red tunic with Sky Blue trousers)… I used to have the set by Tradition of London… and Giles Brown from Dorset did a Band for me because Tradition only did Fifes and Drums.

I sold mine long ago because a reorganization of my collecting desires.

You must admit they have “allure”

Gettysburg Minis in 28MM

Hits: 46

For those tired of my 6MM ACW Collection, wargames, and pics… there you have it… Gettysburg in 28MM.

Someone must have a very very very BIG wargames table… LOL

I did that with 25mm MINIFIGS eons ago… in fact First Bull Run/First Manassas… and it was “cramped” in my wargames table…

One of the reasons I went 6MM… that and the better quality of for example BACCUS minis.

Shelves display in a Cabinet. 54MM Toy Soldiers.

Hits: 50

Long long long ago I bought 54MM Toy Soldiers in a regular basis.

I did collect what was my fancy when a child, I have to admit that I was so busy (in my real life) that usually they come out of the box and straight into the cabinet (not much time to play when in age of working).

Nowadays retired I can display at leisure, but somehow TIME slips by and projects are very slow in coming to fruition.

I am waiting for some painted Toy Soldiers since last November (2022), also casts in 54mm too that now I paint myself (I enjoy doing that).

And some odds and ends in 6MM… including a River Nile British Gunboat thanks to the courtesy of Daniel Hodgson.

It is hard to wait for them!

Collecting 54MM Toy Soldiers.

Hits: 38

When you collect in 54MM… the basic scale for that… you can do it on Military Subjects or even Civilian…

But the final choice is product of a Fun attitude!

Those are from my private Collection for once… (also tomorrow’s Post).

New Buckenham Historical Wargamers (Part III) Seven Years War.

Hits: 34

I guess I have said all in previous Posts (I and II).

Once I have finished all my projects I guess will consider getting into it… even if I start by small campaigns… small battles… small units… and small budget… but experience tell me things seem to go astray from the beginning and megalomania is always lurking over the horizon… lol


Just love those minis,
Nice fog of War

My Union Army of the Potomac (6MM)

Hits: 23

It took me years of painstakingly collecting and even painting some things myself, but more than 90% the work of Robert Jackson (Greg) and Daniel Hodgson did the Ammo Wagons (Reveille (Daniel did also all the Real State, terrain and Woods)… see ANTIETAM/SHARPSBURG Posts.

Not much to add, there are even engineers in shirtsleeves…


PS: By the end of the ACW the Union Cavalry alone had more men that the whole Confederate Army… so… better refight 1862-1863
