Hey Tas,

So Black Powder...just downloaded the base set of those from Warlords website for free I'll check them out!

Cheers!

Cheers all,

There's a battalion of Portuguese hiding in there with some skirmishing Cacadores as well. There's another 2 btns of Portuguese and a gun on the go, problem is the wife made me tidy up and somehow I've misplaced half a btn! They're half done but I'll be stuffed if I know where they've gone around the house...

Spanish... Yes, must do some now Perry has got some on the go... :)

And I definitely recommend Black Powder, how to play a big game without melting the brain, and the best bit it can be tweaked to suit - our club usually plays half moves and we removed the saves to speed up game play (to compensate the stamina was doubled and shoot/HTH made to 4 each for a standard btn. We like it as you can't rely on saves - especially as I can never make one :P)

cheers,

Tas.

Yay Spring! time to paint some more! And Cheers Matthew for the reply - apologies for so long between posts! :oops:

After getting life out of the way, managed to slap some paint on my SAGA 2 impulse buy :D Still WIP straps pouches and highlights/touch ups etc to do but I can cope with them for a 4 or 5 pt game :)

It was these that made me cave and get germans... Oh and taking Jagdtiger for Tank Wars, and the old "you can never have too many armies for BA" :P
These were done last year... yes I really don't enjoy painting Germans so I put them off to do other projects :D

ImageIMG_7531 by tas 1812, on Flickr

They're to go with these (done in 2017)

Hi all!

Gotta love those rare quiet days when you actually get something done! These guys were a project that got shelved ages ago after doing one min sized squad, a medic and the Lt+NCO. The rest were slapped with green and forgotten, until today! Before this morning I was actually going to sell all these, now I'm keen to get a game in! :D They were my second BA army after the Japanese but have lingered through me painting the British, the Germans, and heaps of other projects...

But! USMC here we come, finally! (Typical Yanks,turning up late... :P)

ImageIMG_7540 by tas 1812, on Flickr

more to do but I reckon I can knock 'em off this week!

HI all,

Marine month continues :) - WIP on "Lil Lucifer" a M3A1 Satan. Had to convert the flamethrower as the kit comes with the hull one only but I wanted the turret Ronson flamethrower to match the book so had to convert it :D (Easy conversion, just had to find the right sized barrel in the bitz box

Big Squad :D ! Good looking force.

I have a friend who wants to do CoC with Japs and USMC forces I’ll look forward to an AAR from you it might inspire him (I’m not a Bot Action Player but still love good figures in an AAR)...

Back to the Napoleonics!

Finally found the will to face Napoleon again! It's time even to go back through and highlight/fix up a few things too...

Some Light Dragoons - tabletop ready (another unit is coming)
ImageIMG_7611 by tas 1812, on Flickr

and the WIP start of another Portuguese Btn

My goal of knocking off the lead pile this year is looking achievable almost at this point (well the 28mm one anyway...)

cheers,

Tas.

Portuguese Napoleonics you don’t see them everyday! Nicely done.

So you’ll get all those 28mm figures painted by the end of the year to be replaced with new ones received for Xmas?

Correct :D

Quite possibly all the odd sprues I've ordered today to "finish" the projects on the go before Xmas will get done too (well that's what I told the boss :P )

cheers,

Tas.

More Portuguese - starting to look like a brigade now!

I've added another unit and the mounted officer. A 3rd btn is on the go and possibly a gun conversion if I can find another suitable crew member

So much for finishing off all the current projects :D

Test of Honour has kicked off big time at my place with even my boys getting into it. I quite like it - Samurai's chopping through units of Ashigaru, dirty tricks and the fate mechanic of the game keeps it interesting :)

WIP Test of Honour Warbands and a scratchbuilt Torii Gate to fight over

Hello 2019!

First mini for the year Richard III - have had the mini for the last 6 months but during the massive cleanup management instigated I finally found where I had put his his banner and having wanted to paint him for a while so paint him I did :)

ImageIMG_7986 by tas 1812, on Flickr

ImageIMG_7987 by tas 1812, on Flickr

ImageIMG_7988 by tas 1812, on Flickr

More in the works as I've assembled some WotR light Cav and a gun and more ACW and must finish those Portuguese - oh and the box of Napoleonic French picked up today :D
