General Update

I recently finished painting these rather charming 30mm British Lancers from the Spencer Smith Classic range.  The lance arm is a separate casting, so it would be a simple task to create sword equipped cavalry, something that I might try.

Elsewhere, I have been very distracted by other projects.  I recently received a heap of plastic Samurai figures and I have been working through those. the infantry are from the MB board game 'Shogun' and the cavalry are by Zvezda:

However, I have been further distracted by the release of the Warlord Epic Battles Waterloo series, which has seen some major painting sessions underway.  Bob Black has bought the French and I the British. In each army there are 12 infantry, six cavalry and 5 batteries.  Not only an epic battle, but an epic painting project too!

    1. Hi Norm, the Epic figures are lovely little models, but with nearly 1000 infantry and 90 cavalry in the box it is quite a painting challenge.

  2. Good job on the Epics. Must say I am tempted, although I will wait and see if they expand to Austrians!

  3. Lovely stuff indeed Bob…

    You have certainly been keeping yourself busy…

    All the best. Aly
