100mm Fort Duquesne Miniatures ACW Private 42nd Pennsylvania "The Bucktails" 1864

Here we have my latest model, a Private from the 42nd Pennsylvania Volounteer Infantry regiment " The Bucktails" in 100mm from Fort Duquesne models.
This regiment was raised in Northern Pennsylvania in April 1861 by Thomas L. Kane and accepted as a part of Governer Curtin's Pennsylvania Reserves for a 3 year service. The regiment went to Federal service in August 1861.
The regiment received Sharps rifles on August 10 1862, these being replaced in early 1864 by Spencer repeaters.
Two companies are known to have carried Spencers as early as Gettysburg.
The Bucktail badge was introduced early on and usually was nothing more than a strip of deer hide.

Thanks for looking and any questions or comments are welcome.

Thanks Michael.

Here we have a 75mm Roman Aquilifer from Pegaso Models, I painted this a couple of years back but never got around to posting the images, having mislaid them on my PC.

I have still not started a new project, but I will get there sometime.

All painted in Acrylics and with  N.M.M.

Zaporozhian Cossack 1676 Young Miniatures 1/10 Bust

I have had this finished for ages and just never got around to posting it.
Slowly trying to get myself motivated to start another project,  as to what, I have no idea.
Anyhow here is my second attempt at painting a bust, its of a Zaporozhian Cossack from 1676 by Young Miniatures.  As soon as I seen this kit it straight away reminded me of the film Taras Bulba with Tony Curtis and Yul Brynner,  so I bought it and the rest is history.
Any comments or questions are most welcome, thanks for looking at my Blog, Michael.

54mm Northwest Passage Rogers Ranger in hand to hand with Abenaki Indian

Its been quite a while since my last post, but here we go with my latest offering.

The Vignette is from Soldiers of Italy, depicting a Rogers Ranger in hand to hand combat with an Abenaki  S. Francais Indian in 54mm scale metal.  Its a very old kit I picked up second hand from a local model show.

Fitting the pieces together to look right was not an easy task, but worked out okay in the long run. All painted in acrylics and N.M.M.

I am not sure what my next project will be, it could be anything from 28mm up to 120mm or even a Bust, we shall see.

Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are most welcome.

Edward the Black Prince WIP Warhammer Ancient Battles 28mm Perry

Here we have Edward the Black Prince and as Dean has stated,  I feel they should be based separately, not sure why they are classed as a vignette when they don't suit?

Pictures are not the best again, but they serve the purpose.

Thanks for looking and any questions or comments are most welcome.

King John II and Edward the Black Prince Vignette WIP Warhammer Ancient Battles 28mm Perry

Hello again, here we have a work in progress of a Vignette I have had sitting about for ages.  The figures are of  King John II and Edward  the Black Prince both mounted, but I am not sure whether to base them separately or on same base as yet.
The WIP pictures you can see are of the King John II model in 28mm, all done in acrylics and NMM.

King John II of France reigned from 1350 until his death in 1364. Known as John the Good, he fought against Edward 'the Black Prince' of England at the Battle of Poitiers. King John was captured during the battle and later taken to the Tower of London.

The Black Prince is being worked on as I type and will be posted soon.

Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are most welcome.  Michael
