Entry #2 to the AHPC: 28mm Napoleonic British Foot Artillery Officers

Just finished this stand of figures yesterday. Two 28mm British artillery officers from Perry Miniatures. If you want, you can read my engrossing post about them (and see a few more slightly out-of-focus pics) over at the Challenge blog.

If you don't, it will hurt my feelings terribly and make you feel, I'm sure, very, very guilty.

Unless of course you've already seen the original post then naturally you can leave here with a clear conscience knowing my toy soldier ego has been properly stroked. 

I'm sure that made you feel better, right? Well, I certainly do. ;0)

Next: Hopefully something from the Renaissance

'The Die is Cast - Alea Iacta Est' - My Opening Entry to the 6th Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge

I decided to open the Painting Challenge this year by following this edition's theme of 'Gambler/Risk-Taker' and creating a command stand depicting Julius Caesar as he is about to cross the Rubicon River, the act which sparked the Roman civil war. You can see the rest of the post here on the Challenge blog.

These 28mm models are from 1st Corps. 


I found some replica Roman dice on Ebay. They just arrived in time for the assembly. I gave this one an Devlan Mud wash to antique it up a bit.

Again, please drop by the Challenge Blog to keep tabs on the goings on there. We have 88 participants from all over the globe this year so there's always something interesting to see and read.

Next Up: Something Milanese...
