Russian 6-pounder limber
This artillery limber set by (sold by Perry miniatures) has been sitting half-finished on my painting table for a very long time. I finally got round to painting it, although I must admit I settled for limited highlights and a very basic paint job. I find limbers very cool, impressive models as they often areContinue reading “Russian 6-pounder limber”
Västmanland regt continued
Its been a while since I started painting these, but now I only have 8 more to do until I have done every figure that will be attending the Salute show in London in a little more than a month’s time. I am bringing around 250 figures to Salute, as part of a joint effortContinue reading “Västmanland regt continued”
Pz 4 ausf H
Finished this Panzer IV ausführung H with zimmerit coating (a model typical of the year 1944), to remove at least one item from my queue of basecoated tanks. This one is an old Warlord Games resin kit. It is a nice kit, but the pieces connecting the side skirts to the hull did not fitContinue reading “Pz 4 ausf H”
German tank commanders
These are two tank crew figures from Empress miniatures. Very nice figures, now all I have to do are the tanks!
As I had quite a few of my WW2 German figures out and gathered in one place, I thought I might as well take a few pictures. I have a large number of early war Germans (appropriate for 1939–1941) that are not included here. As you can see there are some Germans in greatcoats, someContinue reading “Germans”
German half-tracks and passengers
I hastily painted my last two SPW armored half-tracks and also painted a few seated grenadiers for them. I have a few more of these passenger figures which I guess may work for marking when the squad is still inside the SPW. Figures are by Warlord Games, vehicles are by Canadian maker die Waffenkammer.
Hälsinge regt. WIP
I have been working on these off and on for the past year. These are not the most demanding figures, but they take a bit more time than the Finnish (all grey) regiments. Will be doing 2×24 of these. Not decided whether to do two flags per unit or not. If I paint the figuresContinue reading “Hälsinge regt. WIP”
Many reading this will already have seen these elsewhere, but I might as well post these pictures here as well. These are the figures I have painted and based so far on both sides (Russian and Swedish). It should be around 350 figures and counting. I dont know how realistic it is, but if IContinue reading “1808 projects…”
Russian colonel, 1808
I just finished a colonel or similar officer for my 1808 Russians. A nice figure, not too difficult to paint. Figure by Brigade Games, sculpted by Paul Hicks. These figures are very nice, and this one has a particularly tough looking face.
