Leven Miniatures.

I tend to feel like I've somehow done something wrong if I dont post something on my blogs regularly. I think things have been pretty quiet on the general wargaming front, although I have played a wargame at least once per week since my last post.  I do feel that in general wargaming has been quiet, with few pieces of news, and little on the magazine front to float my boat. This may change this weekend, when I take the long journey down to Derby. I dont have a large shopping list, but I bet I end up spending all my hard earned cash on something I dont really need. A common problem for wargamers. Also on the show front, I will e at the Middlesbrough show, where we
 [ Colin and I ] are going to refight Rossbach in 30mm. This was an interesting battle, with some interesting tactical problems for both sides.
 Anyway just to show that I have actually been doing something I thought I would show images of my newly painted 6mm buildings bought from Leven Miniatures.
Obviously this is La Haye Sainte, which I have based on three Blucher sized bases. This is a really first class model, and well worth the £12.00 price tag. The Hougemont model, is a very fine looking set up and weighs in at £35.00, which is a hefty price tag, but does look really good.
This building is also from their Waterloo range, but I have forgotten which building it is, It is also a great model, and very easy to paint. I would recommend anyone looking for 6mm buildings to check out the ranges as they do have a wide range of stuff. The site is WWW.levenminiatures.co.uk 

 Below is Poniatowski's fifth corps for the 1812 campaign. Unfortunately the rebasing has severely disrupted my painting, so I am going to have to sort out a schedule of priorities. I also think I better do some Austrians to fight the French I already have based. The Polish figures are in the main Heroics and Ros,.

  2. If I did teeny tiny men I'd use Leven buildings. They look the biz.
    Of course its not Derby anymore- actually in a different county- Donnington in Leics- just- my childhood stamping ground back in the days before wargaming.
    As for no news- well we've released about 70 new packs of stuff this last month...... but since you don't do 15mm..... or 25mm ACW
