My First Building for Chechnya

Hello !
  Here's my first bit of terrain for my Chechnya project it's actually one of the mdf ruins from War Bases Starlingrad set . I have added the simplest things I had in my terrain box (match sticks, plastic card, cocktail sticks and cork ) all cheap and it makes the building a bit different .
  I wanted it to look really drab to match some of the war time Grozney buildings I had seen on YouTube . Maybe with this one I went a little to drab so some of the others I will lighten up a little . Now that's the first one down I hate to think how many more to go some will be mdf and others scratch or resin .
Thanks for taking a look keep licking the brushes until next time...........

AB Napoleonic French Command Stands

Hello all,
I have managed to get these French command stands finished they are eureka miniatures ab napoleonics . I have based them on 40mm 3mm deep mdf bases, I wanted to make each one a little different . General leads a lieutenant and trumpeter of the 7th chasseurs elite company I included a fallen Prussian on the base . Another has a general Lefebvre Desnoettes and a adc surveying a scene in front of them that base I wanted to show a couple of  standing water puddles for something different . And the last is a general and adc looking on behind a broken down field boundary .
  These are for sale if you are interested, on the bench I have a unit of napoleonic Highlanders that I lookforward to showing soon . All the best until next time.........

AB Napoleonics 9th foot (East Norfolks)

Hi all,
Thanks for taking a look today ! The unit is the East Norfolk Regiment at the time of the Peninsula War I have tried to paint them with a clean look with white linen trousers with a few wearing trousers of Portuguese cloth (brown) . Again I have painted the blanket rolls grey with a few brown the facing colours for the regiment are light yellow . My favourite way to show white on light yellow is to use London or light grey and then paint white on top leaving a grey edge (it's good for showing drummers chevrons ) .
  The unit is 36 strong and will be added to my peninsula war army, one more regiment and I will have my first brigade so much to cheer about . I will soon begin a highland regiment which I am approaching with some dread this unit will be for sale as and when it's finished (and if the tartan doesn't go well that might be a while ) .
I have a couple of generals of brigade  (French) that are almost finished these will be up for sale soon but more on them when they are based . And that's about it for this post I hope you are well and keep licking the brushes until next time ...........
  Regards Gavin .
