White Russian Camle Corps

October 16, 2009 Leave a comment

I’m working on a large commision at the moment and my Napoleonic armies are on hold.  I hope to have pictures of the current commission up in the next week or so!  In the meantime I wanted to post up some Copplestone White Russian Camel Corps.  These guys are not available as a pack from Copplestone, but I would assume you could call Mark and ask him to put a few of these together for you.

They are an easy conversion where I modified the camel’s hump to take a greenstuff saddle.  Once that was done I just popped the cossacks on top.

I’ll post up the white russian cavalry in the background soon.  Anyone have any suggestions for rules to use with these?  I wasn’t a fan of Triumph and Tradegy or Iron Ivans WWI rules.  I’m debating picking up Force on Force by Ambush Alley games and giving those a go.  Comments?

Missed these – French Artillery

I totally forgot to photograph / post these guys up.  Here are a pair of finished guns for my French Lasalle army.  They cover 90mm frontage and so “count-as” a pair of guns each.  I think that this looks a lot better than having 4 guns AND crews crammed into 180mm of frontage.

Someone also requested a closer image of the dragoons, so here you go:

September Progress

October 4, 2009 Leave a comment

I needed a break from painting Napoleonics for a bit, so I busted out a pair of Xyston DBA armies that two friends were nice enough to give me.  One Thessalian and one Spartan.  I set out to get one of them finished, the Thessalians.  I did not paint all of the options that the list offers.  Instead I hope to paint a few more armies from this period.  This way I can obtain ALL of the options by mixing and matching.  Anyway here are the Thessalians:

I was able to get together twice with a good buddy of mine and played two games of DBA.  First was against Spartans and it was a 4-0 blowout.  I guess these Spartans forgot to watch 300 before wandering into battle.  The second game was against an imperial Macedonian list.  A 1-4 defeat insued.  Those number do not tell the whole story though as a Psiloi element was one pip away from destroying an elephant!

After these games I figured that I had better get off my butt and do up a second army to use as an opponent.  I need to have two armies if I am ever going to demo DBA for some of my fantsy inclined buddies.  Here are the dreaded enemies of Thessalia……the Spartans:

9 Spears (general in the middle) and 1 Auxillia

Finally I figured I had better get a few shots of my other completed minis in September.  Here are a pair of Man-o-War Demo Corps super high SPEED painted for use in Warmachine MKII.
