Napoleonic Russians and Dragoons

Last week I started on Napoleonic Russians - I have quite a horde of Zvezda and Strelets picked up in a job lot earlier this year. These are very nice figures, I did some Guards infantry and Cuirassiers by Zvezda, and a unit of British Dragoons by Hat that have been patiently waiting their turn in my painting queue for about 6 months.

USMC and Matanikau River

I have just finished a batch of Marines with US Army artillery support sufficient to fill out the OB for the Memoir 44 scenario Matanikau River, this was one of the bloody struggles on Guadalcanal:

I am not sure of the manufacturer of the Marines, they are 20mm metals, and there may be more than one, but the 75mm pack howitzers are from Waterloo 1815 and are a very useful 1/72 plastic kit - 3 guns with crews.

Over the last two weeks I completed this force of Japanese army in 20mm for use in Memoir '44 and Fireball Forward. The metals are a batch I picked up in a swap and are mixed manufacturers. The Ha-go is a Dragon 1/72 kit and the Chi-ha is a resin of unknown manufacturer. The 70mm guns are the Waterloo 1815 kit - nice.

I am very fond of the anti-tank mine....very Japanese...
