Dutch Blue Guard 1690

Hi all,
its taken about a month but I have a couple of 10mm units for my williamite army they are Dutch Blue Guard some say there could have been three battalions in Ireland but I have stuck with the two and I will add another different regiment to the brigade .
  The figures are 10mm Pendraken the colours are painted badly by me and the tufts and grass are made by me with my new flock box (highly recommended)  .
Hope all goes well with your projects until next time......
Regards Gav .

Flock Box

Hi all,
I had a go with my new flock box the pictures you see are tufts suitable for my 10mm/18mm figures . I have wanted to make my own tufts for the last couple of years so its good to give it a go at last . A bit messy the odd light shock (nothing alarming I still have my fillings !) I still need to practice on my flowers I wont be giving inter flora a run for their money yet . But all in all a great investment I would recommend the product it took about half an hour to knock these out and half an hour for my first time set up after that ten minutes will all it take to get started .
     Thanks for stopping by until next time........
Regards Gav .

AB 15mm/18mm Saxon Konig Regiment

Hi all,
this is the start of a large Saxon commission so some nice colours to paint . I intend to paint the whites in mostly warm tones leaving cold whites for waste coats and cross belts . There will be a few changes of trouser colours  plus the tapes on the back packs will vary between white and brown the scabards could be brown or black and I will change these around per battalion. Great coats will also vary .
So I apologise in advance for the many Saxon pics to come !
Regards Gav .

Infinity Yu Jing, Sun Tze

Hello,
a bit different today part of the Yu Jing its Sun Tze I love the Corvus Belli miniature and I thought it was about time I painted some . I also wanted to get some glazing practice in . The base was a bit of an after thought but overall I enjoyed the time spent on the figure . I am also half way through a tiger soldier .  I will pick others from the different factions as time goes on all will be for sale if any one is interested . The figures were painted with Vallejo model and game colour .
 Until next time......
Regards Gav .
