More Sassanid Savaran

Here is the last of the Sassanid heavy cavalry - as before these are 28mm with LBM shield transfers. On the bench now are the hordes of foot and some elephants.

What AVRE 'ere?

An AVRE (Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers) of course - much needed support for the Brits in Operation Martlet where they were stymied in their first encountered by German MGs in hard cover. A few "flying dustbins" launched from the 290mm spigot mortar should help clear a way through the opening phase of the Chain of Command campaign I am hosting for the lads at EWG.

The kit is a Plastic Soldier Company 1/72 model which I can highly recommend.

Sassanid Persians

Inspired by the upcoming release of a new Sam Mustafa ruleset for the later part of the Roman Empire called Aurelian I painted a regiment of Sassanid Persian cavalry - 28mm figs by A&A with LBM shields and banner. I have a ton of Sassanids to do, but I find they take forever to paint. Even if I don't finish my Persian horde in time for the release of the rules, I still have sizable late Roman and Gothic/Sarmatian armies to play with.

Norman Saga Warband

Over the last 2 weeks or so I worked up a 5 point Saga warband of Normans for a buddy from the club in exchange for a copy of the CCA Spartan expansion. Nice figs - these are Gripping Beast 28mm with LBM shield transfers.

British troops for Operation Martlet

Over the last 2 weeks I have been working my way through a reinforced platoon of 20mm Brits for the Operation Marlet Campaign from TooFatLardies for Chain of Command. The figs are a mix of vintage Platoon 20 (casted by RAFM), Plastic Soldier Company, and even a few Revell and Matchbox dudes. See if you can spot them:

Thematic Byzantine DBA army

I spent the last 2 weeks on working on this Thematic Byzantine army for DBA 3.0 in 15mm. Not sure of the figure manufacturers, but it looks pretty sharp. Lots of cavalry, including a couple of double elements (6Cv) that I have never fielded before. I used a LBM 28mm shield transfer for the banner.

US WW2 Rangers

Here are some 1/72 Valiant US infantry done to represent Rangers for this scenario modeled after the climax battle scene from The Eagle Has Landed. I plan to host this using Bolt Action at our next club night.

I'm a big fan of the Valiant figures- wish the range would expand to early war and eastern front.

English longbowmen

I finally tackled some gems hidden away in the lead mountain - 24 classic 28mm Foundry and Citadel longbowmen. These are great figs - I think they might be Perry sculpts from years back. Based individually for Lion Rampant to fight Scots and French.

Union reinforcements

A few new regiments of Yankees in 10mm (Pendraken and Old Glory) for a potential Altar of Freedom game at EWG.

Here are 10 hobilars with longbows from the Old Glory War of the Roses range, I did these with Lion Rampant in mind to fight my Scots, but they could also be pressed into service in the HYW project that had been in planning for some time. Nice figs - one of Old Glory's better ranges.

Bit of this and that

This week I worked on some fantasy stuff that was hiding in the cupboard and some modern Soviet microarmour that I obtained in a swap and have been restoring. I added some GW high elves to my army in anticipation of trying out Kings of War next week:

A lovely Citadel dragon that might feature in my Elven army:

I even found this weird wizard drgon rider dude - I think he was by Grenadier and came with an undead dragon I painted some time ago

And BTR-80s, BMPs, T-80s and some mobile artillery:
