Painting 6mm Militia

When I was ogling over the Baccus range of AWI figures, I did a lot of searching online for other AWI 6mm sites and found Howe’s About That Then!.  It seems he made a great start on a resource then stopped, but what is there is really useful.  I particularly liked the part where he […]

Gaining Mass, 600 Troops

Another installment of my continuing effort to show how great large amounts of small figures look compared to small amounts of large figures.  I have been adding approx 150 troops to every picture.  When I placed the troops for my British Hubbardton photo, I thought it would be a great opportunity to show the 600 […]

Hubbartdon’s British Troops

I have already posted the Patriot troops, so it’s about time the bad guys got their due.  The following units represent the British OOB for the Hubbarton conflict. I’ll describe the units in the first picture below. Out front is the commander Brigadier Frasier.  Next is the 24th Regiment, behind them the grenadiers, light infantry, […]

Yorkers, Spartans, or Romans?

I was trying out a few different eras/wars to see what sparked my interest in January.  I have usually been doing a lot of painting when this happens, and I start to loose a little interest in the current project.  It’s a month later now and I’m back in the saddle with AWI now, but […]

First Ever Attempt At Terrain

Ok, don’t laugh at me, but I have had my first ever try and creating some terrain.  These are PaperTerrain 6mm European Buildings, and they are fantastic.  I have built quite a bit of 15mm stuff for my previous WW2 project.  The 6mm stuff is quite a bit easier to build as it’s not as […]

Here Come the New Yorkers

This is the first New York Regiment that I have created, so it represents my first step outside of New England. The 4th New Yorkers had some pretty distinctive uniforms and I imagine they are pretty well documented as they show up in most collections of plates.  They wore with uniforms with black caps, rather […]

Big Units

In my continuing efforts to show what 6mm has to offer in quality of quantity, I have taken some pictures of the next step in the “Gaining Mass” series which I will now call the “6mm Effect”. This is a group of 6 units, approximately 450 troops.  This is larger than most regular regiments that […]

Hubbardton Troops

I finished these troops a while ago, but haven’t taken the time to take the pictures.    Recreating all the units that fought at Hubbardton was the first goal I set for the blog.  Well, here are the Patriot Forces.  The Brits are finished and just awaiting photographing. I’ll talk about the first photo in the […]
