28mm Achaemenid Persian additions

Hi All,

I've managed to take some photos of my expanding ancient Persian army.

Definitely a challenge in 28mm! I'm working on more units at the moment and tidying up old paintjobs so I expect to keep this up for a few more months.

You are looking at Command groups with a 'Great King' Chariot. Scythed chariots, Skirmisher group, Light infantry group and Heavy infantry group. The latter have Greek mercenaries and imitation hoplites/Kardakes.

Figures are a variety of Foundry, Newline, 1st Corps, Old Glory and Black Tree Design. Even a Minifig guy on one command base. Bases are nearly all from Shogun.

Hope you like the photos.

Cheers,
Mick






































28mm Garibaldi and his Red Shirts

Here is Garibaldi and his Red Shirts. My Garibaldi figure needed some Red Shirts to command. These are Gringo 40 minis.

28mm Garibaldi and Bixio

Here are the Gringo 40 28mm Garibaldi and General Bixio. These are truly beautiful figures and were an absolute pleasure to paint. All they are waiting for now is an army to lead! I have some Red Shirts from the same Gringo 40 line and will paint them soon.

Big Napolenic Wargame

Here are some photos of the Napoleonic game that was played yesterday. All the figures were 28mm and most of them from the collection of one guy. The scenario was D'Erlon's attack at Waterloo. French regiments were 126-140 figures strong. The British line managed to hold its ground and the Scots Greys carried out a magnificent charge that swept all before it. It was a spectacular game and a credit to all who played in it.

Spanish Civil War command group

This is a nice 20mm scale command group I put together for my Spanish Civil War collection. The figures are Soviet officers, but they do just as well for Republican senior officers.

Grand old Minifigs gunners

The minis are ancient Minifigs and the gun is Hinchliffe. These grand old minis still serve loyally and still look good.
