Re: Current Projects

I printed out a copy or War Office UK Battle of Blenheim uniform guides and currently have 25 to 30 or more men and horse painted for the units shown except for upcoming cuirassiers and dutch infantry...lots of work but it made the pandemic fly by...all mostly Strelets except for some Zvezda Russian and Swedish cavalry and artillery and a few infantry. so I have six large multi drawer storage cases full to the brim.....waiting for someone to come up with some 3d printed buildings in 1/71 of Blenheim....I visited the battlefield in the mid 80's on a beautiful spring day while I was stationed in Goppingen...I never imagined that I would one day own both armies....that was the year that ESCI first came out with figures for Waterloo....we have really progressed beyond my wildest dreams.. I am now collecting 1/72 3d printed buildings of Quatre Bras battlefield... have Quatre Bras ferme, La Bergerie and La Baraque...saving up for Gemioncourt farm....plenty of buildings out there now for all periods....it is amazing. I'm 69 and caring for my 97 and 95 year old parents and my hobby brings me great peace. Now lets get those Cuirassiers in the pipeline...my Garde Du Corps and English Dragoons are due to arrive Monday!

Re: Current Projects

Where can these 1/72 scale buildings be purchased John? I’d be incredibly interested in something like that. It’s a wonder what 3D printing has done for the hobby

Re: Current Projects

There seems to be a lot of 3D print buildings on ebay. All sorts of scales. I too have seen the Quatre Bras buildings. There are also some Waterloo ones kicking about. Even the less well known buildings such as Mont St.Jean farm & "Le Caillou"-Napoleon's HQ on the morning of the battle.

But other theatres of the Napoleonic war and of course other era's as a whole are also represented. WW2 especially.

Re: Current Projects

OTP Terrain out of Australia seems to have the best selection and Warfayre in England...if you go on EBAY and type in 20mm or 1/72 wargames buildings the sellers will come up...Brian at Warfayre will make anything he has to your desired scale and is rather quick returning item to you...OTP takes 4 to 10 weeks and I have two large orders i am awaiting from them...they even have buildings for battle of Liepzieg and Highland 3d prints has a great selection....printers licensed by Jens Najewitz are popping up all the time....there is more stuff available than you can ever have room for. Good luck!

Re: Current Projects

Thank you for the tips John! I’ll have to give them all a look.

Re: Current Projects

Thanks for the tip, Dutch and Belgian Carabineers on their way. Trip Van Zoutelande's Brigade will finally be realised. Of course I would have preferred to remain loyal to Strelets :innocent:
Now, about those Prussian Artillery Train ......

Re: Current Projects

Hello,

I finished painting a STRELETS set a few weeks ago and created some pictures for the contribution page. I sent these pictures to STRELETS, like the years before... But they never replied and didn't publish the pictures either. So I think they have more important things to do these days (including protecting their lives and defending their country). That's why I tried to show a few new projects in the forum through my photo posts.

I'm in the process of painting some cavalrymen from the American Civil War. I need them to create another scene.

I also have to finish painting some Napoleonic cavalrymen.

But yesterday we had 39.5 degrees here.....so i don't feel like painting figures.. :sweat_smile: :sweat:

Re: Current Projects

Basing up my Napoleonic Wurttemberg Division....just a few command bases to finish off.

Best regards,
Andrew

Re: Current Projects

Currently painting some WWII French, some HYW to be able to field a couple of retinues for Lion Rampant - sadly none of these Strelets. Have an ongoing project of painting medieval civilians many of which are Strelets which I do as and when.

Re: Current Projects

I’ve just temporarily stepped out of 1/72 scale to tackle Perry miniatures allied cavalry.
Unhappily my rubbish painting skills are even more visible on the larger figures but I’m quiet and content and out of the blazing heat.☀️😎

Re: Current Projects

In these hot weeks I can not paint small things and then I try to make a career armed and tanks one after the other ... KV2, Turan ll, SPA Viberti, Lorraine and Laffly, Gaz truck and many more...
