Franco Prussian War. The French

Work in progress.

Been a busy week preparing the French for the Franco Prussian War. This is a test figure which is still unfinished but you will get the idea. I have started a few more but they are not as far on as this chap.

I think they are going to look alright in the end.

There is always a time during the painting process where you are not sure how it is going to turn out. A few colours more and there it is. It was the same with this figure.

Unfortunately these are not for me so the painting mountain is going to stay the same.

Bye for now

Future War Commander

We had another game of FWC on Friday at the club. My Kraytonian's V Gordons Andrayan robotic army.

It all started very well. I manage to dispose of his armour easily enough but then had to deal with the infantry.

That was not so easy and things started to go badly after that.

Never mind though as FWC is a good rule set. It's very easy to follow so we will try it out again. I did not bring a camera but Gordon did.

See link for pictures:

Painting wise its been very good. I have finished 80 infantry which are 6mm but they have be done so the Lizard Riders Army for FWC is just about complete. I have also added some game markers for Ambush Alley, market scenery and a bin !!! 

Yes just the one bin.

I am clearing the decks as I am about to paint some 28mm Crimean French. More about that later.

Bye for now.

Not another wargames blog !!!

Yes I am afraid so. What you will see is alot of pictures and alot of variety.
This will not be a blog for a specific period.

No I am true wargaming butterfly. 

So from from 6mm and above expect the unexpected.

First up is the a figure from the Mexican American War. It has been on the painting table for ages. A real painters block this has been. The horses were finished awhile back. I will post when the unit is finished.

It is the Mexican Second Cavalry Regiment.

Next in true butterfly style is a miniature from Dark Realm Miniatures. It is a Kraytonian Rakkat Rider. I have another to eight to paint. It will be used for Future War Commander.

Next up is another few figures for FWC but for a another army. Now it is known that if anyone is going for a bug race it will be me.

Ceratops Light Cluster

Para. Support Cluster Missile

Steg Assault Cluster 

Para. Support Cluster ( Lance )

Raptor Dragoon

Now finally no Lizard Rider Army would be without this next guy.
