My latest effort in painting infantry flags for my 1808 Swedish army is a livfana (king’s colors) of the model 1766 type. As in other armies of the period (e.g. Russian, Prussian, etc), Swedish infantry battalions carried a white flag with royal emblem in the first battalion. The first company would carry the king’s colorsContinue reading “Swedish infantry king’s colors, model 1766”

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”

As long-time readers of this blog may have already understood, I like resin vehicle and tank models for 28 mmContinue reading “A lamentation on the decline and fall of resin tank models”
Panzer IV ausf G
A hastily painted Pz IV. I have many more armored vehicles to paint, so I need to speed paint these. This is an old resin kit from Warlord Games which sadly is no longer available.

At first I thoughtContinue reading “A game of Chain of Command”
Boxing my brigades
I have recently organized my napoleonic figures in sturdy cardboard boxes. I have used a magnetic mat in the bottom and as the figures are all magnetized they stick very well to the box. Previously I stored these figures in Feldherr cases, with every single figure in an individual foam slot. Needless to say, thatContinue reading “Boxing my brigades”
Plans for 2022: napoleonics
Starting off the new year away from the paint pots I have had some time to think about what to work on in the coming year. First among my priorities is more work on figures for the Finnish war of 1808. In 2022, I will try to paint up enough miniatures to represent one particularContinue reading “Plans for 2022: napoleonics”
Some more french dragoons…
