A new project, ww2 Naval Pacific using "Naval Thunder" rules and figurehead 1/6000 scale ships. YES, 1/6000.......when I first opened the box I really wasnt ready for just how small they were. I spent several days looking at them thinking "how am I going to paint something SOOOO tiny. Eventually I dove in and found them really a breeze. Japanese Destroyers below:Here are Japanese Heavy Cruisers, The numbers are just for reference during the game and are not historical.
On the backs I printed the ships name and class to make things easier.
Another side project, The French And Indian War, All the figures are either Perry Miniatures or Conquest Miniatures, both excellent miniatures. This one is slow going because all the Indians (Im so non-PC) have to be individuals, and all the war-paint beadwork is a pain to paint.
Christmas 2009 Ii started a Russian Civil War project, all the figures are Copplestone Castings which are excellant sculpts, Here are 2 pics of Reds, bases unfinished
Next a White unit, I modeled these as the Officers Company of the Kornilov Regt. For you purests out there I KNOW they probably were never this uniform until in exile in Greece after the war...but come on, the uniform is to cool NOT to paint.
A side project of mine, The Spanish Civil War, here are 2 pics of Anarchist militia circa 1939.
