Indian Mutiny

 I have been wanting to get into Indian mutiny for ages but never had the chance or funds.  I always wanted to know how the Indians could have lost given their advantages, and wanted to play a game with them but never saw a good set of rules to have a go with, but after a long look while I should have been working at Freewargamerules site I now have a set to game with but no figures.  However At Triples I picked up a few samples of Irregular Miniatures 15mm Mutiny figures.  These are Mutineers as you can tell, what I couldn't resist was getting a couple of elephants to pull the siege guns.
 The Infantry are a collection of figures both mutiny and loyal, to give a better overall look.
 These Elephants are such a cool thing I had to have them.  The Code if FIM14 from |Irregular Miniatures if you are at all interested.  They are quite cheep as well considering.  They are used to pull the Indian heavy siege guns.
The cannon are not part of the mutiny range but from the equipment section and are bombards, I just think they look more realistic on the field, besides by the end the Indians were dusting off anything that went bang as the British and their Allies crushed the rebellion.

Aliens in 10mm

 After Triples I found myself the proud owner of these Aliens and marines, this is a little selection of the much larger army.  The Colonial marines and APC's are all in Urban camouflage which I have been itching to paint something in for ages.   The bases are done in home made base tex and with grass clumps from a dude off of Tajima Miniatures.

 I love the camo job on these, see how they look with the buildings on my other blog.

WWI 1/3000th ships

 The full collection of my WWI  ships, the German Pacific cruiser squadron and the british ships for both the battle of coronel and the Battle of the Falklands  where the Germans came to a sticky end. 

With the ships are  several transports and tramp steamers to give a load of scenarios to play little games of the period.
 Clos ups of both the Germans and British.

 Here are 3 passenger ships converted to merchant raiders.  All the ships are from Navwar

Mahdist Revolt 6mm

 Here is a Formation of Baccus Mahdists, The pack comes with 4 regiments but I thought they looked a bit crowded and so split them to 6 bases.

 A  slightly closer View of these guys.
 There are as you know 2 types of infantry these guys are the 'other guys'  Ok they are the main guys but you get the idea.
