Hi. Completed my Colonial Civilians this afternoon by lacquering with 'Satin' spray.

The 28 Civilian figures by Wargames Foundry.

The Farmer and his Wife.


Well pleased with the miniatures - not sure if I will make use of all the figures in the forthcoming games- though it is good to have plenty of figures to choose from.

Tomorrow I shall be able to make a start on planning the Gunboat HMS Thistle.

Hi. I have had a good day painting up my Wargames Foundry Mutineers.

Mutineers On the Work Bench.


Well pleased with the figures. I have enough figures for a Skirmish Game and may in future add to the numbers.
At this stage for my Colonial/Victorian Skirmish I will refer to the figures as 'Mutineers' - later I may refer to them collectively as 'Dorovians'.

ROYAL NAVY Sailors Finished To-day.

Hi. Had a good weekend painting up my Wargames Foundry 25mm Royal Navy figures.

The 31 figures of my Royal Navy- Captain, Officers and Crew from HMS Thistle.

Scenic setting of the completed Ships' Compliment.

6lb Cannon and Crew with Captain and Ensign.

A nice photo of the Ship's Crew of HMS Thistle.


Had a great time painting the RN figures - I used Vallejo and Tamiya Paints.
I paint in 'Block' fashion without shading- preferring this method.

Looking forward to making a start on the Mutineer Natives to-morrow, followed by the English Civilians.
By the end of the month I should be able to progress onto the designing and building of my long awaited Gunboat - the HMS Thistle. Very much looking forward to the Gunboat.
