@moskolector: You know what? You're right. The lighting made it worse, but yeah. I went back and redid the sword a little, and added a little OSL.








Also did some scenic shots.

@Dysartes: Thanks very much. Well, the models are really strong. I can't bring myself to buy any new SoB figures because I got an army of them already, and mine are a bit smaller than the new ones (but heavier! So that's gotta count for something, right? ), and in part they're absurd to put together. Malifaux plastics levels of absurdity, or even beyond that. Anyway, these new models are really good. Because they didn't mess with the designs. Strong figures, those.



I did another scenic shot, because I had a heck of a time last night trying to light those. Now here's another one with a bit of daylight doing its magic and a less garish part of the background:




Hope ye like'em. Also happy weekend. The past two weeks I painted a LOT. Not in terms of figures, but these Eldar and SoB were rather tricky (and fiddly!) in parts and I did a lot of painting. Looking forward to that weekend now.

Right, last night I put together some Napoleonic Austrians for my own collection:



These are for the 1809 Austrian project for Sharp Practice. In the front Carinthian Landwehr (they were on the way in Tyrol as part of the Corps Chasteler), in the back a 3-pound gun with crew, in the back right 6 Grenzer light infantry and their leader. (in between a Grenzer from a prior unit I used for basing reference; I should have taken him out before taking the pictures).



The figures in the back (artillery, Grenzers) are all by Front Rank (but they are standing in the back! I'm such a crazy dude.), the Landwehr is by Old Glory. Because nobody else makes Landwehr in top hats ("Hetherington Hats") in 28mm. Interesting. So I'm glad I found them. It's not going to be easy because the casts are a bit uneven. On the one hand great, because they were cheap and I think there are 6 doubles in the set of 30 figures at best. So just perfect for skirmishing. Old Glory seem to have a system where they combine different torsos and legs and then add an individual head. Something like that. In any case very good. And you get two flag bearers, two officers, two drummers and two corporals. Also cool. Less good are casting and durability. The guys come in a plastic bag; that means that the flagpoles are completely spaghetti-like, of course. Doesn't matter; cast-on flagpoles have to be replaced by metal sticks anyway. With muskets (and especially bayonets) this was more problematic. Only one bayonet was broken off out of the bag, but after cleaning and sticking them to bases, about 40% of the guys had their bayonets snapped. The material is quite soft, and the connections between muskets (which are not very well cast either) and bayonets are very thin.



So as long as they are not too bad to paint I think I will have a lot of fun with this unit. Because you gotta love odd things. Or 2 units, if you go to Sharp Practice. Militia, Landwehr and so on consists of 10 figures each if I remember correctly, and then you need leaders.



This is what the uniform would look like. Something different.




So yeah, that's that. Happy weekend!

Today I did another step on the Austrians. I never knead up the right amount of putty. So I thought why not instead of eating any surplus as usual, why not make something nice?



No wonder I don't ever get anything done.

With the red and green uniforms, they will look a bit Christmassy, so a snowman to accompany them fits.

But will they be able to sleigh their opponents?

@Dysartes: That is true. We all know how problematic red and green unitforms can end up on wargames models.

@Solar_lion: Thanks very much.


Heyhey, here's another solo battle report set in the early stages of the Thirty Years War; it's the battle of Wimpfen (1622)!

https://www.tabletopstories.net/language/en/2020/08/in-deo-veritas-battle-of-wimpfen/





The rules I used are In Deo Veritas by Helion Wargames again, figures are 10mm in size.

Heyhey, happy Sunday. Here's my latest battle report, covering yet again the battle of Wimpfen (1622). A week ago I played the game using the In Deo Veritas rules, this time I used the Twilight of Divine Right rules:

Hope you enjoy the battle report!

Automatically Appended Next Post:

Here's an early WIP shot of the Carinthian Landwehr:



I removed the cockades from the front of the hats and put new ones made from Green Stuff on the sides of the hats, where they belong according to my sources. Loads of bayonets snapped during the clean-up process. In this case the chunkiness of the muskets came to my aid. I made new ones from toothpicks. So far they stick pretty well. Let's see how long they last. If they come off - oh well. I'll make a new one.

Of course I also snipped off the flag poles and drilled holes for wire rods.

So yeah, early WIP shot there. Next step I assume will be hair, then faces and handy, then I guess it's time for ...I don't know. greatcoats, I suppose. And then it goes on from there.
edit: oh, I forgot the breeches. I guess those are the next thing I should do after the hair and skin.

Right, that's enough of that. Away with my own stuff, as I have to paint someone else's Austrian Line Infantry. Infantry Regiment no.14:

A very jaunty bunch. I just had several delicate casts lose their pointy and poley bits. Going to be a real PITA getting things re-build in a more robust fashion.

Absolutely. Especially bayonets have been a problem for wargamers for decades. But yeah, spikey, pointy, poley... all problematic.

@Sherrypie: Thanks very much! Do you find the battle reports easy to follow? Or would you like to see anything done differently?


Roight, here's a WIP shot of the next few figures on the desk - French Colonels and a 6pdr gun with crew. All Warlord Figures, and all actually really nice.



Hope you like'em so far!

Well, they sell bloody sea monsters under their Black Sails label. Wouldn't surprise me them selling whimsical winter wonderland creatures as "Black Powder miniatures".

Nah, that's the one I made from suprlus Milliput a few weeks ago. I think I posted a picture of him when he was just done. Made some time to get him painted.

@Gitsplitta: Maybe he is! I'll ask.

@Dysartes: Don't be silly. Gitsplitta stems from a long line of cannon balls!


Well, well, well.



Before the end of the month I'll do some pictures with scenery.

Right now I prepared some 15mm ACW cavalry and primed them. In between I'm sneaking in some licks of paint on my Carinthian Landwehr dudes.

   
Made in at

Vienna, Austria

Well... I don't think I can do much more for them.






As mentioned before, I'll write up a full review of these chaps in the near future, because I find them to be rather interesting. The flags I added today. Just made'em up in image editing software, as nobody quite knows what these looked like. Usually Landwehr units were given Ordinärfahnen out of the line infantry's stocks and then Landwehr units added their own designs on the revers side of the flag. In this case I got two flag bearers, so I made on flag featuring a variant of the carinthian coat of arms (three black lions, red-white-red) and on the other flag I put the coat of arms of the city of Klagenfurt (white tower, Lindwurm [Wyvern]).

Seeing as how these were done I took the opportunity and based the whole collection (or what's finished so far). So here's the core of my 28mm Sharp Practice force:



They represent parts of Chasteler's corps during the Tyrol campaign 1809: Lusignan line regiment, Klagenfurt Landwehr, Jäger-Battalion No.9.

So the core of the force is done now. 3 line infantry, 2 skirmishers (3rd rank infantry), 1 light infantry and 2 to 3 Landwehr (Militia) units. Depending on whether I keep it proper and keep leaders, musicians and flag bearers out of the units or not.

Hope you like'em. From now on i'll add mostly "fun" units, leaders and of course deployment points. Now where did I put that coach...

It's that specific point in time at which people had pretty good means of illumination at night, but no internet or tv yet. So they spent those long winter nights working out amusing ways to fold their hats.

The blue skirt for the priest is an interesting choice, Siggy.
