Russian Infantry

Finished the last of the World War 2 Russian Infantry. These 28mm metal figs are from Black Tree Design.

There's nothing special about these figs, they're just basic riflemen.

And finally there is the sniper, Lady Death. This fig is from Warlord Games.

I've also picked up some more boardgames recently.
So I like GMT apparently.

Anywho, on the paint table is some Counterblast figs that will pretty much get used for Stargrave, I have a couple Soviet vehicles that I want to get done and some monsters I'd like to get done soon.

F&IW Indians

Finished another small batch of figs. These are all 28mm metal figs. This first group is from North Star Military Figures' Muskets & Tomahawks line.

For the next group, I only remember where one of the figures is from.

The second figure on the left is from Warlord Games and came with the A Dark and Bloody Ground book for Black Powder. Great book by the way. The other three figs I'm not sure who the manufacturer is. They're either from Warlord, Sash & Saber, North Star or Galloping Major.

F&IW Part Who Knows

Finished yet more French & Indian War figures. First group are 28mm metal figs from North Star Military Figures and are part of their Muskets & Tomahawks range. These are a group of British Highland Light Infantry.

This is the first time I've painted tartan so I think they came out decently. Could use a few more black lines, but they look perfectly fine for the gaming table.

Next up is the British personality character pack from Warlord Games. These are 28mm metal figs. From left to right they are: Washington, Monroe and Wolfe.

On my table are some natives and some 15mm Ancients that I'm slowly grinding away on.

F&IW French Regulars

Finished my second box of French Regulars. These 28mm metal figs are from Warlord Games. Pics are crap but that's par for the course!

I really do like the Warlord Figures and they may be my favourite manufacturer for this period. And I'm probably done with painting white uniformed figs.

Star Wars Legion Vehicles

Finished a pair of Star Wars Legion vehicles on Saturday. Both of these vehicles are from Fantasy Flight Games. First up is the AT-RT.
You may notice the right handlebar is missing. My set was missing that piece for some reason. Oh well. The rider is carrying his blaster rifle in his right hand so it's not like he was using the handlebar anyway.

And finally is the T-47 Airspeeder.

Nice and quite easy to paint up. I haven't mastered the ability to paint decent windows yet so I'm not particularly thrilled with how they turned out. I'll have to find a decent tutorial that doesn't require 30 steps.

This actually was the last of the Star Wars Legion pieces I had. My SW:L paint pile has been completely eliminated. There's still a few things I'd like to get and it would be nice if FFG built their line intelligently. I'd like to see some Imperial army troopers and maybe some other vehicles without having to pay an arm, leg, lung and kidney for some 3D prints. Evidently the actual development of all the Star Wars miniature lines was handed off to another company as Asmodee is in the process of destroying FFG. Yeah, I have an opinion on that.

15mm Ancients & Buildings

Here's the latest figs I've completed. There's two parts to this post: 15mm Ancients and some 15mm buildings. After building my New Kingdom Egyptian and Hittite armies a few years ago I had a bunch of partially empty packs. I just decided to make some more bases because you can never have enough units and realistically, what else was I going to do with them? These figs are all from Old Glory 15s. They're based up for Impetus, Sword & Spear and Hail Ceasar. First up are bases of Sea Peoples infantry.
Next up are some Nubian archers.
Next is a pair of Egyptian archers.
Here's a lone base of Egyptian heavy infantry.
And finally is a pair of skirmish slinger bases.

I also managed to paint up some middle eastern buildings. These resin buildings are from Forged in Battle's War & Empire range. This is the Eastern Village set with a Minaret Mosque Tower. I know Islam wasn't around at the time of the NK Egyptians and Hittites but it will find use in the Arab medieval armies I'll be working on later.

Samurai & Militia

Finished a couple more sets of figs in the past week. First group are 28mm metal Samurai. The samurai and teppo base are all from Kingsford Miniatures, the command base is from Steel Fist Miniatures. The figs are based up for Impetus and will definitely also see use once I get my hands on Commands and Colors Samurai Battles. First up is the samurai base.

Next up is the teppo base.

And finally is the command base. The mounted commander is Ishida Mitsunari, the losing general of the Battle of Sekigahara (with his head still attached).

The second batch of figs are for the French & Indian War. These 28mm metal figs are from Galloping Major Miniatures and are British Rangers/Backwoods Militia.
