British Regulars (2)

I’m becoming quite addicted to these Musketeer Miniatures.  It seems they are incredibly fun to paint, I just wish there was less cleanup involved in the process.  It seems that the mold lines take quite a bit of work to get rid of, and there are some blemishes on many faces that I dare not […]

Crossley Tenders

I’ve been watching these little beauties on other peoples photos for a while now.  These trucks are called Crossley Tenders and they carted the Black and Tans and Auxies around Ireland during the Irish War of Independence.  There’s lots of great footage of the troops packed into the back of these trucks and tooling around […]

Fixing Up My Musketeer Miniatures

I have been quite taken with the Musketeer Miniatures line of figures for the Very British Civil War, they are one of only maybe two or three people out there making figures specifically for this somewhat unique setting.  They are sculpted by Paul Hicks and quite simple to paint.  My only problem so far has […]

Canadian Militia in Capotes

These guys were great fun to paint.  I didn’t know a thing about Miliciens or Canadian Militia when I started this project over a year ago, but I have found them very interesting since.  The Galloping Major range seems to have embraced them with a passion as I now have 24 of them with completely […]

BUF (2)

I’ve been planning on adding more troops to my VBCW project for a while, but I got sidetracked for a while with starting my own miniatures line.  At the moment I don’t have anything to do but wait, so on to more painting. This is a pretty tame group, just a few more weak minds […]

BUF Painting Guide

I just finished up some more of my BUF troops for a VBCW and though they aren’t very complicated, I couldn’t remember what colors I used for  some of the details.  So this is mostly a record for myself, there may be others out there that would like a starting point for painting their own […]

Settlers Defending (2)

  This is my second group of Settlers Defending from the Galloping Major.  His figures continue to get better and better.  I enjoyed painting these guys even more than I enjoyed painting the last lot.  The addition of the vests added a lot of detail and interest into the figures.  I really like the way […]

Judges (3)

This is my third set of Judges and they just keep getting more fun to paint.  These are some of the most over-the-top figures I’ve painted yet.  I mean the badge on the SJS Judge is rediculous, but for some reason with Judge Dredd around, it doesn’t seem to phase me. This group also contains […]

Settlers Defending (1)

These guys are the first of my Anglo American Settlers from Galloping Major Wargames.  There is another pack on my painting table as I write this.  This group is all in shirt sleeves with a mottly looking assortment of equipment. The vast majority of the encounters in the FIW were border skirmishes between Indians and […]

I’m Kickstarting a Miniature Range

I’m not sure everyone knows, but I’m kickstarting a miniature range called Crossover Miniatures.  I’ve got a fantastic sculptor, Soapy Dormer, who is immensly talented with lots of great ideas.  We’ve come up with some greens to show off on our kickstarter page.  I just wanted to get the message out there to anyone who […]
