A 28mm diversion

I got a bit bored with 18mm, it happens. I saw the Front Rank 28mm reinforcement packs and thought I’d paint up some British peninsula figures.

I must say I really like them, they don’t take that much longer than 18mm.

Here’s my first efforts, I will do some more pictures when I finish the unit.

10mm eye candy

I once had a brief dalliance with some 10mm napoleonics. I liked 10mm as a scale, mass effect, detail and cheap. But at the time the ranges available were limited.

I look now and there are more ranges available so it’s possible to build complete armies.

There are now even Spanish buildings suitable for the peninsula in 10mm.

Below are some AIM French. I liked the figures they were easy to,paint and detailed enough to make them look ok. But expensive to get here in the UK and a very incomplete range.

Now some Royal Horse Artillery have the French in their sights.

British 28mm by Victrix

Here’s some eye candy of my last figures I painted. These are 28mm Napoleonics from Victrix.

I liked the figures, liked the variation but they just took too long to put together.

I painted 3 battalions in total and based them in 4 stands of 6 figures.

Ultimately I just haven’t got the space for 28mm figures. Liked them and would love to go back to them but my maximum table size is 6ft x 4ft, not really enough for 28mm.
