Sheriff John T. Chance


 Pretty sure "knuckleduster" miniatures found their inspiration for this sheriff in the movie Rio Bravo from 1959 starring John wayne as Sherif John T Chance.

Well even if not it was still were I found the inspiration for my
 colour palette.

Bandits and Brigands

The awesome set from warlord. Have to say I really enjoyed panting the boxed set. The figures were all crisp and very well sculpted. As said ealier some might find a couple of the models like the leader below a little to heroic but for "test of honour" games I find that he fit absolutely fine he might not be allowed to join my perry samurai army though. Have a look in the "test of honour" page to see the rest of the gang.

Henry V 1415


Mounted Henry V. Yes we all know he fought dismounted at Agincourt and this horse the Perry brothers chose to sculpt is probably not his warhorse but the one he rode when he addressed his men before the famous battle. Well anyway I choose to paint it the way I remembered it described in some sources...The knights all wear white armour without barding. Noticed right now the lances needed to straighten.I just when for an knight/man at arms for Henry´s banner allthought Sir John Codrington is depicted on the Osprey book cover......well many history sources say that that is quite uncertain. If anyone found other sources pls. tell me : )

Depleted waffen ss squad.

Well actually just reinforcements for my Normandy german force. Also got the mg for the group but the team went awol for the photosession. As all my other figures for BA the are from warlords excellent range. Not much to say there. I loved the figure with the firing panzer faust(one in the middle), but it has a real weak spot, so it broke when I tried to straighten it out. well still a lovely figure...and had I had the time it could have been fixed.

Samurai bandit

Bandit from Warlords "Bandits and Brigands". Must say that the quality of their test of honour  figures  suddenly became very promising. The figures are crisp and and well sculpted. Althought this is my first from that set I am eager to paint the last ones.
Also the small booklet I find very nice and usefull. The new scenarios adds new rules and I really like the storyline concept. Cant wait to their "Ninjas of Iga set to be released.

English archer unit HYW


100 years war....again. This is the third archer unit for my English army. 24 models as the 2 others but this time with 2 additional bases I can place in front at a unit which is still preparing their position. Bought the figures from the perry´s a long time ago but have been struggling to figure out how to use them. Added a few plastic a couple of archers standing guard and the rest helping to drive the stakes in. Ran out of static grass so only the bases in front got some. Again I used a palette of many different colours, but about 10 figures are in the kings livery blue and white so gives the unit a little more uniform look than the others.As always a joy to paint the figures from the perry brothers.


Few more pics on the HYW page
