Fantasy Napoleonics

Just a little fun project I started.

The heads are from Warhammer. The redcoat bodies are Victrix. The Rifles officer was a 40k commissar.

Napoleonic Naval Landing Party

To add some variety to my napoleonic british army, I decided to go the naval way. When the Royal Navy had to participate in operations on land, they naturally sent the Marines. These were usually accompanied by seemen. Most people think of cutlass swinging scurvy dogs when they hear of seamen. But I wanted to go in a different direction with these.

I decided to give them a more or less "uniform" appearence. Dressed in their blue jackets, black hats and armed with muskets (seamen were trained as infantry and good marksmen).

The base for the conversion is a Victrix infantryman. I removed the details of his uniform coat with a hobby knive and sculpted the jacket, buttons, blanket roll etc. with green stuff. The top hat is made from plasticard and the top of a stovepipe shako from the Victrix set.

The heads are from differrent plastic sets

The straw hats are from the Perry acw set

Thats the look I wanted

Reaper Samurai

I painted recently this Reaper Samurai. Though they are labeled as "Classical Samurai", they seem to be more fantasy than historical miniatures. The sculpting is great and they paint up easily. They are quite on the big side but still look great next to Perry Samurai. Overall I would say the are a must have for people who are into asian themed games.


Back from Hell

Yay online again! After a virus destroyed my PC AND my Laptop, I finally had time to fix at least the PC.

In the next few days I'll post some stuff that I painted the over last months and some stuff I'm working on right now.
