Re-basing Napoleonics

Oh dear first money spent and inside 2 weeks as well! I just spent £6.85 on replacement bases for my Napoleonics. The spending comes under caveat no. 1 of The Pledge ‘Essential Consumables’. As I decided some time ago that my current basing scheme for Napoleonics was not appropriate for what I wanted to achieve I knew this was coming. Still I have ordered some very reasonably priced bases from www.warbases.co.uk so I do not feel too guilty (warbases are excellent by the way, highly recommended!).

I haven’t painted anything for this project for over a year but I am getting the buzz again. Below are a couple of (poor) photos illustrating how I have been painting them. The flags on the East Norfolk regiment have faded but are being replaced!

More on this project soon!

M4A4 Sherman

Here we go – first model finished! (well not quite in this photo – I added some scratches to the decals after as they looked too clean). This is an M4A4 Sherman from The Plastic Soldier Company. I love PSC’s stuff, it’s fantastic value and excellent quality, what more could you want? This is for my 15mm Battlegroup Overlord project. I own enough models and figures for a roughly company sized force of both panzer grenadiers and British motorised infantry (though I lack the actual infantry – waiting on PSC’s Brits which are a caveat purchase under The Pledge!).

Now I am sure that some will take issue with the colour, but I find it a satisfying hue in this scale. I painted this almost entirely with my airbrush, which I am starting to get the hang of now!
