  Game Mats
Posted by: Phil Yates - 12-03-2014, 08:11 PM - Forum: General Chat - Replies (6)

I have had a few more game mats made. I think I am finally happy with the outcome.

  Crescent and the cross
Posted by: Phil Yates - 11-19-2014, 03:47 PM - Forum: Hobby & Painting - Replies (5)

My first update in a long time. I have been painting up the fireforge figures to use in the Crescent and the cross.

I have really not enjoyed painting white and hence my slow progress.

I have done enough for a low points game but I really need to get some mounted knights painted.

Hi all,

I think I can make it to the club on the 22nd (afternoon session). Let me know if you have space for a beginner like me in one of your games!

Obviously, if it was to be 28mm Napoleonics, I could bring in some French troops.

Laurent

PS: is there any photo of the 28mm GdB game played at the weekend?

Hi all,
I have looked in the diary and I am suggesting a date of 14th Feb for the big FOGR Edgehill. I'd like 4 a side so please let me know if this date is a goer and which side if any you want to be on. Once I have numbers I will work out what extra troops are required.
Cheers
John

after the 'old' forum has been abandoned, and to present my past & present work, I'll here start with some work done in 2011 (as shown on my old blog...)

excuse the poor photos. The reds should be much brighter.

[Image: 140619023734605524.jpg]

[Image: 140619023743398279.jpg]

Miniatures are Perry. I had in mind to do a 24-strong battalion, plus an eagle stand. Technically this unit is not valid for 1815 as the drummer is in green and the cockades were different in 1815...

I always glue the miniatures to water bottles caps prior to painting.

I'm not sure that if I was to paint these today, I'd base them in the same way. Also, it took too long to finish. Nearly a year.

I started work on a 2nd battalion, and only finished ~10 men before I gave up, kind of bored. I needed a change!

And as nice as it may look, at this pace I'd never be able to field a small army for wargaming..

Hello Guys,

Here are a few piccies of how they turned out..........

(as already shown on the old forum)

This is a summer campaign uniform. They are not wearing the later cylindrical shako, which they only received in 1815.

Fighting in Spain, they avoided the Russian disaster.

Perry miniatures (plastic). This took the whole of 2012 to complete. 3 squadrons of 8, representing 160 men per squadron. This makes it a strong regiment.

[Image: 140619030102535855.jpg]

the swords and carbines are glued and don't feel very strong. I'd be very cautious to bring this unit on a gaming table...

[Image: icon_quote.gif]


My line infantry brigade is nearing completion... I know I am not visiting the club anywhere as near as I'd like too, but these days will come.

And 2015 will be the occasion, I'm sure, to re-fight some bloody 1815 battles (Ligny, Quatre-Bras, Waterloo). So what to paint next? It's ambitious, but I've settled for a big heavy cavalry force. Not so useful for the everyday wargaming (small-ish battles), however it should be motivating to paint up, and also very impressive if I achieve my goal! Perry Miniatures also offer a nice variety of poses and even generals wearing the cuirasse.

I'm aiming for the 13th Division of Cavalry, composed of 4 regiments of cuirassiers... 11 squadrons in total, and I'd represent them all 6-strong. Add a few command stands, that's a good 70 horses.

So Perry Miniatures it will be, the metal ones (rather than plastic). I've ordered the first 12 and painted a test miniature. It's much easier to paint than hussars! I need to post a couple of photos soon.

The only downside I've discovered so far is the amount of work to prepare the miniatures. Significant flash requires removal, sabers are bent (of course), but so are the horses legs, which is a lot more hassle to fix!

I'll try to give updates of my work here, as to help myself go trough this piece of work. 11 months to go... it may be doable!

Here's for the uniforms of the 1st regiment of cuirassiers:

[Image: Cuirassiers01.png]

Interestingly, the 4 regiments that make up the division all have different distinctive colours. One good reason why to pick this very division.

The uniform is valid for 1812-1815, however flags are slightly different in 1815...

I can see I am going to runout of superlatives with this.

Great start.

Ps where did you get those uniform guides?

For the uniform guides:

http://centjours.mont-saint-jean.com/

it's in French but covers all uniforms of all armies during the Waterloo campaign.
