Blitzkrieg Germans

I have added some Blitzkrieg Germans to my slightly stalled Bolt Action collection. They are nice figures and I must say I enjoyed painting them more than I expected! So here is my first 10 man squad
 I still need to add a few grass tufts to the bases but other than that they are ready to roll. 
 I am a bit of a plastics fan and the more sets I get the more bits and pieces I can add to my bits box. The warlord games sets do mix and match nicely, although in the past I have raided victrix Napoleonic parts to add more variety to the poses u you can achieve straight from the box. 
 I do seem to have more projects then I have time for! But that's nothing new with me. 
 So as always thanks for looking and I will post again soon! Well that's the plan!

Victrix Spartans

I just don't seem to have had the time lately to get anything finished, it's all bits and pieces and stuff for other people! Not that I'm complaining but my blog has suffered a little so I took some photos of my Spartans. I painted them a while back but other stuff took over and I haven't posted any pictures here, well not till now!
 it's my usual poor attempts at taking pictures but hopefully they will give you an idea of what they look like. They are Victrix miniatures and they paint up nicely! 
   shield's really seem to make them, and I can honestly say they are all my own work. No real achievement when you see how easy they are to copy. 
 The red and white really seem to work well, I varied it a bit but hopefully the uniformity is still there. I'm pretty pleased with the overall look, and the basing seems to have worked out nicely. 
 So thanks for looking and hopefully I will be posting more stuff real soon
    So cheers for now
