Greys for Balaclava

Post by Unlucky General » Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:23 pm

It's been an age since I was last on site but here's a sample or two of my latest addition to my Crimean Balaclava projects - the Greys. I have a couple of articles on the unit - a history and my models. http://balaclavabuild.blogspot.com.au/2 ... greys.html

They have come up a treat. 8)

I am greatly interested in the Crimean war - I have a few of the Eureka 18mm figures, but as the range isn't complete, I never really did much with my small collection.

Having successfully played a Napoleonic skirmish game with up to 14 figures per side, seeing this is tempting me to get back in to gaming the war.

It really is a fascinating war to read up on, yet for many gamers it is quite obscure.

Cool looking figures! Nice painting!

Hey Dropbear, you could use Smooth and Rifled or Song of Drums and Shakos for a Crimean skirmish..

I think the latter is free on the net now I love 'em just played a Napoleonic game Monday night using them...

I have actually been having a lot of fun playing Napoleonic skirmishes with Nordic Weasel Games rules "FireCore". The rules are designed for modern, but work perfectly for any period.
