Painting And Projects Progress

For the First Carlist War I have finished the command base of the Guides of the Alaves battalion, this brings the unit up to three bases which can be used in next weeks game as a small unit. I am working on the command base for the Royal Marine battalion so that will be a small unit for the game. Before doing the figures for the remaining two bases I will finish the two figures for the Ontario hussars and BAL lancers to bring those up to four bases.
Nick expressed an interest in my World War Two Mediterranean theatre project, so while I am posting here are my figures painted to date, a mixture of Perry plastic and metals. I tipped up the box I keep them in and emptied most of them onto the floor, interestingly none of the plastic figures sustained damage, while several of the metals were chipped and sustained bent weapons.

  1. Grand progress there Phil! Is it the angles or are the metal WWII figs chunkier than the abominations?

    1. Thank you DB. They are a little chunkier, height wise they are fine.

  2. Lovely work Phil! The Carlist Wars would be on my to do list as well if it wasn’t for the Perry metals.
    Also very nice work on the WW2 figures. Would like to see more of it some day.

  5. Those are some lovely new additions Phil! I'm very tempted to start the Carlist wars and this is another push in that direction.

    1. Thank you Christopher. It is a nice horse and musket period with not overly large forces required for a flavourful game.

  8. The Carlist War is a very interesting looking period. So is The Triple Alliance-both of which Perry seem to want to tease me with!

  10. Very nice Phil, I had asked if your WWII was 20mm, I have two Sarrissa Dacha's and they are tiny, I thought I may have ordered up the wrong scale, but no.
