Biggles Learns to Fly

I have always loved WW1 planes since reading Biggles learns to fly. I always wanted a 1.72 DH2 but they weren't around when I was a kid, so was  thrilled when I found the Shapeways one. I made up the colors and asked my wife what she wanted on it, hence the heart, tis her plane really.

I liked the DII as well. I don't no why, but the early war planes are really rather tidy!

1/3000 WW2 Soviet

I like the odd balls and when I discovered my meager soviet fleet I thought I should have a crack at painting them. Quite fun really. Anyhow, I had a chance to use them in GQIII and they totally destroyed the German fleet that came to hunt them down. Good fun!

28mm FIW Figures

Continuing the update I've added some of the North Star British Rangers. I like these figures a lot and have enjoyed painting them a lot. The figures were quite clean with very little flash. I would highly recommend  them!

1/3000 Italian Navy WW1

I have been busy painting some of the ships. I have a bucket full and have been steadily getting through it. World War 1 has caught my fancy so I begun working on my Italians and Austrians. Here are a few pictures of the my Italians, the Kuk will follow later.

AWI 15mm

After a long, and hectic break, I bought my own camera so thought it fitting to update the old blog.

The first of many new projects is the AWI in 15mm. All of the figures are Peter Pig and the flags are from Flags for the Lads. They are a little large but I still like them.

I'm looking at doing the battle of Brandywine so this unit represents the 46th. My next unit will be one of the guards units.
