Seven Painted

I have now finished seven of the wonderful Ratnik range.

They are most enjoyable to paint in muted colours. 

The Ratnik thread on the forum is most active with members showing their wealth of talent.

A Town for Ratnik Miniatures

Having painted a further figure from the first set I thought a quick town setting would benefit the miniatures.

Ratnik Miniatures 2

I have started to paint the wonderful Ratnik miniatures. 

As you can see by the photographs they really work well with my figures.

I think we currently have six forum members working on Set One of the range.

Ratnik Miniatures

The first set of the Ratnik civilian castings arrived this morning.

These are wonderful sculpts and are a perfect match for my figures.

If you are interested in 18th century miniatures then these are a MUST HAVE. More details on the scotiaalbion blog.

Prussians vs Saxons

A few photographs from my latest Campaign game. More of a skirmish, a border clash between Henry's advance column and a garrison of converged Saxon infantry. 

Next week another painted Saxon regiment will arrive from David, this time Prinz Xaver. I have finished prepping another Saxon Chevauleger regiment Graf Rutowski, which completes all the major units that I will have for the Saxon army. All I need to do now is put together some field artillery, a few more staff and of course a few vignettes. Hopefully, all will be painted by March 2022.

Prussian Officer IR 26

I mentioned on my last post that I was making a miniature based on artwork from a member of our Forum.

The figure was made from a wire armature and then the application of Milliput. Followed by a quick bit of brushwork.

I still have another piece to make/convert to complete the vignette.
