Frontiersmen rebased

Here's the reason for my distraction. I decided on a game of Rebels and Patriots covering the Northwest Indian Wars 1785-1795. It needed some mounted skirmishers (Frontiersmen) and I remembered that I had some suitable figures from the Imex Lewis and Clark set. So they have been based and a unit each of foot and mounted skirmishers created.


Eastern Friendly Indians rebased

Another distraction was rebasing these Imex Eastern Friendly Indians, very much some background props for games. There also a few extra Indians from the Lewis and Clark set.


Napoleonic Spanish rebased

These almost got missed as they are shown as a different nationality unlike the Portuguese. Luckily spotted in time these are the late Spanish uniforms. Figures are Springwood and some HaT British light infantry for the skirmishers


Wagons roll

A slight distraction - I sorted out some figures that hadn't been used for a while for a game, looking though the contents of the box there were a number of items needing rebased of which this is the first. These are a selection of the different Pegasus wagon sets used for the American Civil War.


Napoleonic British staff upgraded and rebased

I finished these a few days ago but I haven't had chance to take any pictures since. They are a mixture of my old staff figures, the HaT British Infantry Command set and the Waterloo line officer set
Two British and one Portuguese brigadiers under Picton
Three brigadiers under a generic commander Hill perhaps.
Wellington himself, a Newline? metal figure
The Brunswick staff


WW2 Soviet extras

Having earlier 3D printed some Soviet universal limbers I decided a couple more would give me more flexibility, at the same time I also needed some drivers and supply wagons. The drivers were created by extracting a crewman from a STL for a motorcycle combination. The panje wagons are the old Atlantic wagons with 3D printed horses and drivers, I just need to add some suitable loads.


Napoleonic Brunswick infantry rebased

So the last of my British and allied infantry has been rebased with the completion of seven battalions of the Brunswick army in 1815, the Lieb; 1st-3rd Line (with flags) and the 1st to 3rd Light battalions.
The one significant fault with the Springwood figures was that they depicted the 1809 full length coat instead of the later short coatee.


Almoravid Skirmishers

The final batch of Saracens left over from my Crusades project have been completed as Almoravid skirmishers.


Napoleonic Portuguese Infantry rebased

My Protuguese infantry brigade have now been rebased, it comprises the 5th Cacadores and the 11th and 14th line infantry regiments each of 2 battalions.


Almoravid Spearmen

I've added an extra three units to my Saracen army, but as I have more than enough for normal games so I painted them more similar to the Almoravids who fought in Spain.


On the workbench - May 2025

Well April has just flown by and now I have chance to catch up again so I'll be working on
  • Reworking my Napoleonic British commanders - partly using my new acquisitions
  • Rebasing my Napoleonic Portuguese infantry - I've just started these
  • Rebasing my Napoleonic Brunswick infantry
  • Finish more Saracen infantry - these have slowly been painted over the last 6 weeks are are approaching completion
  • Rework my old WW2 Russian winter infantry
  • Maybe start painting some of the 3D models I have printed


Latest Acquisitions

It's has been a while since I bought anything, mainly because Strelets is still unable to produce anything at the moment. But I combined an order with my friend Andy for some bits to fill gaps in my collection.
My plans for these are:-
  • Waterloo line officers - upgrading my British staff
  • Waterloo Prussian staff - ditto for my Prussians at some point in the future
  • Waterloo British Paratroops with pack guns - I realised I was a bit short on gun crews
  • Mars US Paratroops (Part 2) - half pack - some odd additions
  • Mars British Paratroops - half pack - again odd additions but I like the 2" mortar
  • Mars German Winter Artillery Crew - half pack - some nice crews, I not sure I'll use the 105mm RRs
  • Mars German Tropical Paratroops Heavy Weapons - half pack - I will be using these 105mm RRs
  • Mars German Tropical Paratroops -all for Andy
