28mm Perry Plastic French Napoleonic Carabiners

heres four French Carabiner from the Perry plastics range I am painting them up for a bit of fun these haven't been varnished yet . I followed the Perrys painting guide so I am painting them for the hundred days campaign with the blue jackets and the officers in white (when I get around to them) . When complete I think I will mount them on 50/50 mdf bases .
  Thanks for taking a look until next time.....

League Of Augsburg 10mm

Hi all,
more 10 mm League of Augsburg this time an English regiment of foot Dereings as you can see I finished them in a electric blue now I don't think Dereings regiment would be taking to the field in such a snazzy uniform,they wore it dark blue .  But I have always said I had wanted to keep the colours loud for this scale .  When your painting grey or brick red that's harder to accomplish but you get the idea .
  So that's eight regiments of foot now, I need another eight I think and that would be the Williamite army complete for now . Then it's the Jacobite turn so I think I should have both armies finished for September . So many thanks for stopping by and taking a look .
All the best Gav .

Battlescale 10mm Resin Buildings And League Of Augsburg 10mm

Hi all,
I bought some solid resin buildings from a new company called Battlescale they are based here in the UK but will ship world wide . I have added a new 10mm Danish foot regiment for scale they are based on 2mm thick mdf . I intend to base the buildings at some point but as always its as and when .
  The regiment is the Oldenburg Regiment of foot again no need for a pike block, next regiment under the brush is Derings in a nice electric blue you may need sun glasses for that one .
All the best until next time .
Regards Gav .

League Of Augsburg in 10mm (7)

Here's some more League of Augsburg,
this is a Danish horse regiment Von Donops and with it a 12pdr gun in a siege position I wanted to show a position that had been thrown up quickly overnight the 12pdr is not enough to bring down a wall but could be used to fend off a attack by the defending garrison. The crew are English one bringing up powder is from an infantry regiment used for labour .
Any way thanks for stopping by I will be posting some ab naps and more League of Augsburg soon .
  Regards Gav .
