Anglo-American Provincials

Ahhh, a chance to paint The Galloping Major’s miniatures again.  These are the guys that I’ve missed the most on my break from historical minis.  I’ve been watching people paint them and biding my time, well, I finally ordered them.  First impression of the figures is that they are cracking!  Great character and lots of […]

BUF (3) – Command

I’ve been wanting to add this command group for a while, so I’m really glad to have finished them.  The models are great and lots of fun to paint.  I added a spare British Regular command figure and just painted him in BUF colors.  I think it’s fair to assume that he might have had […]

British Regular Painting Guide

This is mostly for my own reference, but hopefully it will serve to help others who start out clueless.  The following paint scheme should work for the Irish War of Independence, the British Expeditionary Force in WW2,  and a Very British Civil War. All colors are Vallejo Model Color. I’m also using the following for […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

English Regulars, BUF, IRA, and Eddie

I have been wanting to paint this lot for some time.  All of the models are from the Musketeer Miniatures Interwar and WW1 ranges, with one exception.   The figure of Edward is a freebie given away at a British wargames show called Partizan.  A very nice gentleman sent it to me, thank you again sir. […]

Black and Tans (1)

I painted these Black and Tans from Musketeer Miniatures a while ago, but finally snapped the photos this morning.  They were a bit flashier than I’m used to but cleaned up well. They were fun to paint, but I’m a sucker for puttees.  I couldn’t really figure out what color exactly to paint the RIC […]

LAM London Bobbies

I didn’t plan to paint these lads so early in the VSF world, but due to an order mix-up I became the proud owner of them.  They really grew on me from the start.  My original plan for my VSF forces involves defending Britain from Zombies and fighting Prussian spies, so the muscle is going […]
