Basing.

 The recruitment of my rebel forces has lagged behind the reinforcements that I received from the bold Jim Sweeny but I have managed to complete this unit of Perry Miniatures resplendent with early uniforms.I just cant seem to make my efforts look 'rebel' enough, I must admit I have always liked to exaggerate the colours of historical units, simply to catch your eye when viewed.

 I have also finished basing one of the Hinchliffe/Echelon Miniature units. They are waiting for their standards but I do like them. They are a mish mash of figures that are over 30 years old, maybe  should call them my Old Guard. The Steve Hezzlewood figures stand out from the older Pete Gilder ones, but I like them both for different reasons.


 I also finished basing a Redoubt Miniatures Iron Brigade unit, courtesy of Jim, they are brutes but have a lot of life in them.The Union is gathering pace.

  2. Extremely pretty figures! The call to mind some ACW figures photographed at the old WHC that appeared in issue 6 or 7 of Miniature Wargames.

    1. If only that was the case Stokes, I have seen some of that army in the flesh and they are still wonderful.

    Brutes they maybe but they are the Iron brigade after all ��
    As for the vibrant colours you are using, I for one really like the style and look, excellent work again!

    1. Neil,
      I just cant bring myself to dull down my figures, even though that would be more accurate. The Redoubt figures are pretty impressive though.

  4. Glad to see the figures getting some use mate, hope to see them on a display game sometime in the near future?

    1. Jim,
      Youve helped a lot with your contingent. Now if you'll just hand over your renaissance figures then I would be happy. [I do literally hand over the figures by the way.]
