Welcome

Welcome to my wargaming blog,
I'm Dave and live in Morpeth, Northumberland in the UK.
This may or may not be a regular thing, we'll just have to see how it goes.

I am a painter/collector of figures first and a wargamer second. My thrill in this great hobby of ours is to place that final well researched & painted unit into the cabinet. The actual gaming with the figures is an important but secondary experience, we all like to win, but it isn't the be all and end all of it, being with good friends and having fun is.
Hope you will enjoy reading this blog as much as I will writing in it.
Just to remind the visitor to scroll down the various pages and click on 'older posts' to see more.
Dave.

28mm Prussian Napoleonic infantry

With the impending release of Dave Brown's new Napoleonic rules General d'Armee I figured that I would like to add to my somewhat limited 28mm Napoleonic collection of figures. I have loads of 15mm naps but only one brigade of French and one brigade of Brits in this scale.
Sorting through my now dwindling unpainted figure box I came across two battalions of Prussian infantry. As none of the guys at our local club The Border Reivers Wargames Society 
have a Prussian army I figured that this would make a contribution to the upcoming games which everyone is predicting when the said rules arrive.
Having purchased a box of Perry plastic Prussians to finish off the regiment plus two command figures I thought I should get the photographs of the completed figures on here:





1st battalion, 7th infantry regiment (2nd West Prussian). Elite Figures.





2nd battalion, 7th infantry regiment (2nd West Prussian) Perry plastics.





Fusilier battalion, 7th infantry regiment (2nd West Prussian). Elite Figures. I know, the Fusilier battalion should have a bugler instead of a drummer but I didn't have one so tough titty!
These were in advancing pose and I figured they would look better if as Fusiliers they were in skirmish formation.



The command stand. Perry metal figures.
Little 10mm elephants next!
Dave.

  1. Nice, the commandbase is superb - have you been watching the videos put out by Lard Island that introduce the Napoleonic rules (I have Pickets Charge).
