Big and Small

 I finished the German forces for a WW2 scenario "Buron" which will pit the 12SS versus Canadians (North Nova Scotia Highlanders) in Normandy. The vehicles are GHQ and I used Adler infantry which are quite good. I will likely run a game using FFT3 at the club next week.

I also painted a box of 54mm Austrians between vehicles (see here, a 1/285 Sdkfz at the feet of 1/32 Austrian grenadiers - looks like Tonka toy) as part of trade with one of the guys at the club.

They were quite refreshing to paint after a few weeks of 1/72 and smaller. Great models.

GNW Swedes complete!

I just finished the last couple of regiments for my 1/72 GNW Swedish army for Maurice. Here are two regiments of foot (Strelets) with 3 artillery batteries (Zvezda):

My good friend Mark Wall found the flags on a blog by a fella named Wayne Turner  ( Thank you Wayne, these are fantastic!

And the centerpiece, the commander in chief Charles XII himself, carried on a litter due to a foot injury. What a great model, Strelets again:

DBA Ancient Britons

I finished a Corvus Belli DBA army this week, this one has been on my to-do list for about 2 years. These are great figs, even though they take a lot of clean-up due to flash. I look forward to playing these guys one day, I love the combination of warband and mounted. Suits my play style.

I also completed another Swedish regiment for GNW Maurice, this is getting close, just another regiment of foot or two, some arty and Charles himself then it's done.
