Some painted figures for 1897 .


I've been busy painting some figures for my wargaming colleague 'A' who wanted some French for his 1897 collection to complement the British and Germans I painted a year or two ago . The figures are 28mm Irregular Miniatures.


Colonial Turcos , the units are designed to be used with 'A Gentleman's War' and gloss varnished to match his existing ones.


Chasseuers d' Pied , these are to be used as 'Marksmen' and so only number 6 figures .


Gun and crew on an Artillery base from 'Warbases' .


French Dragoons again from Irregular.


He also wanted another unit of German cavalry , so I painted up these Hussars .


Personality figures can play a large part in AGW , so 'A' provided these 'Willie' and 'Stadden' figures which I have painted to suit the various protagonists . These figures should be appearing on the tabletop soon .

  3. Very nice!

    Sometimes its fun to paint 'stuff' knowing you won't have to find storage for it or start a whole new collection.

  4. A few more posts like this and I might be won over to the "shiny" side of the hobby! I hope you'll at least get to play with them (or see them) in use on the table.

  5. As everyone else said, those look like they were fun to do, even if they are so tiny. :D

  6. Very nice - I am tempted with that period - perhaps using the Zinnbridgde moulds - however I must resist new projects.

    We are using the AGW rules with the 40mm SYW semi-flats and it works well.

    1. I have SYW 40mm as well and have been thinking of trying it out when I get around to it .

  7. Nice going there Tony- cannot beat the shiny-gloss...I tend to use a 'Satin' spray which gives a bit of a 'semi-gloss' and lifts the natural colors. Cheers. KEV.
