AB Napoleonic French Command Stand

Hi all,
here's another command stand 15mm/18mm a French general passing a note to an adc they are painted in non metallic style . I kept the base simple with this one there wasn't room to get to creative with the adc being on foot . I will put this one the earlier command and the two Dutch commands up for sale on the blog in a couple of days .
  Here's wishing you all a happy and safe new year where ever you are in the world and thanks for stopping by my little blog from time to time .
All the best.......
  Regards Gav .

League Of Augsburg 10mm (3)

Hello all,
I have another regiment of foot completed this time the Earl Of Meath's I tried to show these in a slightly darker red as you can see they have white cuffs and dark grey breeches with light grey stockings . I am painting another regiment of foot then I will move on to a cavalry regiment as I don't have enough little blokes to make full regiments of foot .

1/10 Bust Lucky Jack (1)

Hello all,
this is another project it's a 1/10 bust called Lucky Jack it depicts Russell Crow as Captain Jack Aubrey in the film master and commander . I have followed large scale figure painters for years for me it's art and my art of choice . I like all types of figures historical, fantasy and sci-fi in most scales .
So after all the years of saying I can't do this I am going to do this if that makes sense. I chose this figure for a couple of reasons, I like naval sailing ships, I like the Patrick O'brian books and on a practical level I wanted to start with a simple type of bust I think it's going to be a challange enough 😉.
   So here's some photos of what's in the box I will post as and when I have something to show I will be painting the bust as and when I have free time .
Until next time........
Regards Gav .

League Of Augsburg In 10mmI (2)

Hi all,
I managed to base Sir Percy Kirks regiment of foot i had to wait to get the pikes they are based on 30mm square bases . I cut up a tooth pick to look like freshly cut tree stumps and a couple of my usual cork rocks . When I send for more figures I will include some casualties to give variety to the bases .
  The second regiment is the Earl of Drogheda's regiment of foot although they were on the Irish establishment I believe they were mostly English . Kirkes regiment I had posed in relaxed look but Drohadas as they are in firing poses look more aleart .
There's only one photo and a poor one at that when I add the next regiment I will add some more photos . Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon .
Regards Gav .
