Royal cuirassiers - WWS

Second entry to my building 15mm French Louis XIV army of the war of Spanish succession. I focus only on regiments that fought (and lost) the battle of Turin (1706). Le cuirassiers du roy were reportedly there. Miniatures are by Dyxon.

Napoleonic French line infantry

They got me! I surrendered to nappies! After years of painting ancients and medievals, I capitulated. I am in frenzy for nappies now, I cannot stop. I started from the Hat box French line infantry 1808-1812. I painted only one third of the box, and three boxes of cavarly, one of artillery and around 40 infantrymen in greatcoat queued up already crying for colours. Yes, I am proud to present the first 32 infantrymen. I hope you like them.













Achilles vs Hector

It's a duel that always fascinated me, since high school.  Then I bought the Zvezda boxes Spartan and Greek Infantry and got inspired. A small conversion of two figures (the arm holding the spear) and this is the result. I like it!





Carthaginian war elephant

I started my DBA Late Carthaginian army (II/32) from the war elephant. The figure is from Hät 8023 - War Elephants. It's a good start and I am happy with the result. 


Régiment Piémont - WSS

My first entry into the 15mm world (and war of Spanish succession). It's been a great painting experience. I am very satisfied with the result, although pictures quality does not capture it appropriately.


Medieval French - DBA IV/64

Ladies and gentlemen, fresh from the oven, my DBA medieval French army. It took quite a time to paint and base, but I am more than satisfied with the result. It was also the first time I used coffee grounds for basing; I mixed it with white glue and static grass, then I cover with a thin layer of gloss varnish when dry and added here and there a bit of grass to break the brown monotony. And there it came Agincourt battlefield conditions. The only hope now is that history will not reapeat itself in my next DBA battle.
