Another productive week.

Not bad going for a weeks painting, 40 x ECW cavalry for Graham C. plus the 7 x 20mm infantry featured in the previous post for Old John.

The cavalry were painted in units of 8 with variations in coat colours and horse blankets etc whilst trying to retain the overall look of blackened armour and buff coats. Basically the same for Royalist & Parliamentarian horse save for the red or tawny sashes. 

Tomorrow I'll prep up what's left of John's current box, a dozen mounted figures and the next box is due to arrive! 

I also have in the pipeline 36 or so lovely 15mm Prussians (1860's era?) by Fightin'15's for 'Jolly Broom Man'. These arrived ready undercoated in grey.

The figures for John this week include this fine old Hinchliffe Winged Hussar. The Hagen horses are beautiful sculpts too. 

The figures from JBM arrived in splendid style tacked down to the bottom of the box and packed out with pillow stuffing!


  1. Certainly turning them out during they look very good.
    The Hinchliffe winged Hussar is, I think, still the best model of that figure out there. Looking forward to seeing what you make of it.

    1. Yes. one of the best figures of the Hinchliffe range.

    1. Excellent packing mate, but you almost lost your box, my wife said it would make a fine button box :)

  3. Splendid looking ECW horse! I really like winged hussars and they're classics, how nice you're painting Prussians for the Jolly Broom man, lucky him!
    Best Iain
