Backlog, part II

I'm back again, with more pictures of painted miniatures.
These were only recently painted. All are Perry Miniatures.

First pictures are the Orange-Nassau regiment, consisting of two battalions. The first battalion is considered "large" in Black Powder terms, the second battalion is standard sized.
In real life the batalions had 893 (1st) and 688 (2nd) men before any fighting started.

And naturally also two casualty markers.

Last weekend I also painted a high command stand for the Dutch-Belgians.
It is general de Perponcher-Sedlnitzk and General Baron de Constant Rebecque. Perponcher is the one holding the map, while Constant Rebecque is pointing to were the enemy is coming forming line. In the rear you can see an ADC handing over orders to a mounted guide. Another guide is holding one of the generals horse. 

There is a lot of detail on these miniatures, and as I wanted them to look good, spend several hours to paint them. I am very pleased with the result, and hope you like them too!

I was not able to go to Salute this year, but the first pictures must be on the WWW around this time I guess. 
I have another update of the blog planned, but this time, it will not have any painted miniatures or games! 

PS, I just now noted the small pieces of flock on the rear of the guide's horse. They are not in the paint, luckely, I just removed them. Strange that this is more visible in a picture.

Backlog, part I.

I'm really sorry it took so long to update my blog again. All kind of things happened, of which I'm not going to dwell upon here.

So, what did I do since that last short message, early january? Not a lot of gaming, there was always something which came in between. But I do got some miniatures painted. The goal is to paint at least as much miniatures as I did last year. And if possible do more!
Due to circumstances, I have some extra free time currently.
I'm unable to get into my gaming room, were I normaly take the pictures for my blog. The pictures are now taken on my painting table, and not in the best circumstances (light). But that will change again shortly. I hope.

Some pictures to show what I've got table-ready*:
Ancient Greek cavalry. I hardly had any of them, and added these.

I now have 20 mounted Greeks, which is still is a minimum I think, for the large number of hoplites I have. The ones I already had, have also been rebased, to fit in with the rest of my army. All are Wargames Foundry.

I've painted a fantasy / mythology miniature also. It is a Minotaur from Otherworld. This is an excellent miniature, and I wanted to make the best of it. So I repainted the skin color three times. II wasn't happy with the result the first two times...

As you can see, it is a rather large miniature. The peltast is from Lucid Eye.

That's it for now. More painted miniatures will follow soon.

*Not really, I still have to varnish all these miniatures.
