The contradictions of war – “Gospels -v- Garands” diorama

More stills from my “Gospels and Garands at dawn” diorama.  The snowbase was made using Andrea flock snow sprinkled over a PVC sheet (covered with some groundwork) then attached to a small box canvas (to keep the weight down) and then airbrushed-in with suitable washes to blend.

Napoleon – 28mm Wargame – Foundry Miniatures

I didn’t have much time today to spend painting, so I grabbed another of the primed wargame figure I have near my bench and whenever I had a few moments during the day, I painted this little figure of Napoleon Bonaparte.  This is from a set produced by Foundry Miniatures of Bonaparte and his Marshals – the set consists of 12 foot figures including some of his well known officers and aides.  Once again, I enjoyed just mixing the colors and getting it done in the day – so one down and eleven to go!   I’ll paint up some others … Continue reading Napoleon – 28mm Wargame – Foundry Miniatures

I’ve had both of these figures in my stash for a many years now and every so often they pop into view among all the other stuff crying out to be painted!  I had already cleaned them up and undercoated them – so when I spotted them yesterday I decided to strike while the iron was hot and block in the main colors as a start.   Both figures (54mm) were produced many years ago by Valiant Miniatures in the US – more reminicent of the traditional toy “connoisseur” type miniature – a bit short on the surface detail but big … Continue reading The Valkyrie stalks his target – Count Von Stauffenberg & Co

More 28mm Miniature gaming figures

I’m continuing my painting exercises with these little figures (see my last post) and over the weekend I painted this guy on his futuristic motorcycle.  I’ve no idea who manufactures the figure, I have 100’s of these from a mad buying phase from many years ago, and every so often I dip into my primed stock and tune up my painting technique.  As I’ve said before it’s a break from the larger (more serious) figures and it helps sharpen my eye for color/value mixing and it’s also very enjoyable!
