This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Some painting "in-process" shots of more figures for my 28mm War of 1812 collection. A 36 figure US Marine infantry unit and a 6 figure naval gun crew. All of the figures are new ranges from Knuckleduster.
Here's a close up of the Naval Gun crew. The figures are Joshua Barney and his unit of flotilla crewman who fought as infantry at the Battle of Bladensburg. The flotilla men and a detachment of Marines were the only units that didn't run away during the battle.
Lastly, a closer shot of the US marines. These uniforms are a bit more ornate than the standard US infantry but they should be fun to paint.
After this batch the next unit in the painting line will be a 36 figure Maryland Militia unit.
