I finished my Romans early so I did a Goblinaid figure, Paul Hick’ Napoleonic Goblin. It was an opportunity to try out paints for my Red coats. After a bit of looking through books the uniform looks rather Frenchie. It is fantasy so I don’t think anyone will complain, too much.

If I feel brave I might take one of my 95th Rifles and experiment with darkening the uniform as it is too light.





95th Rifles Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular War

This is my 95th Rifles Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular War, from March’s workbench.

The figures are mostly Foundry, sculpted by the Perry’s with a couple of Perry plastics thrown in. I’m not happy with the colour as it is much too light, they were known as the “Sweeps” as the uniform is a very dark green. Maybe in the future I’ll do a black wash over the uniform to darken it. Hopefully any opponents won’t complain too much about the inaccurate colours.

What’s on April’s workbench?

What's on April's workbench?

What’s on April’s workbench?
There is a small squad of Albionican Empire troops from Warploque Miniatures. This is for my “Not-Empire” army.
Some heroes for my Albion Army, miniatures from Studio McVey, Hasslefree, Celtos and Privateer. These just need a little touching up and basing to match the Halflings.
Finally, if time allows, a necromancer babe from Reaper.
This month is a relaxing one as I found the unit of 95th Rifles a bit of a slog.





Next on the workbench

Next on the workbench

This is the next job on the workbench, or rather the kitchen table. A unit of the 95th Rifles for my Black Powder British Peninsular Napoleonic Army. Most are by Foundry (thanks CSM) and there are a couple of Perry plastics in the mix as well.
Everytime I finish something now I put away the paints, clean brushes, new paper towels, basically a clean slate.
I’ll post a picture of the command group that has just been finished later this month.





A little teaser for what’s coming next
