Old Wargame Foundry Vikings

   These are some oldies....Foundry Vikings that go back at least to the 90's (or earlier)
which provided some nostalgia in painting them.




















Russian (Russ) Cavary




   The following are some Russ cavalry that I painted up....some of the figures are produced
by a Russian company I believe Siberian miniatures or Commissar Miniatures not certain
which one....my apologies. The embossing on their shields as well as the figures
themselves are well done. A couple of the figures are Gripping Beast mounted on
a different manufacturer horse(do not know but which was provided with the figures by the
customer).
















Vikings continued

 
    More vikings.....mix of manufacturers of which many I have not







seen before








Vikings (numerous manufacturers) Ladies and Archers

    I plan on posting several separate posts on one topic.....Vikings. It stems from a large
commission project that I have been working on of around 120 figures. They are composed
of numerous manufactures including I believe some Russian companies included
(a few of the figures I have never seen before) while others are familiar models. The
figures as usual are not based as this will be done per the customer....the pics below
are figures that are a first for me....never seen the female vikings before so cannot
say who they are produced by...and have included some bowmen pics

Iron Duke 93 Highlanders Indian Mutiny




       A certain individual has been collecting a large amount of forces to recreate the
Indian Mutiny of which I have been painting the miniatures for him....he will provide
the basing. These are Iron Duke miniatures and they are very nice with a large variety
in different poses. They are highly detailed requiring some time investment to paint
between the tartan cloth, checkered look for headdress among other things. Their
uniform color was my own mix to recreate the desired look of the brown holland
cloth that they wore. I have included as many pics of the miniatures as possible.

Lakshmi bai from Empress Miniatures




   This figure someone had me paint to add to his Afgan war range I believe it is from the
3rd  Indian mutiny. Her name is Lakshmi Bai and I must profess I do not have much to add
in terms of info (outside her bio on Wikipedia)....only pics. I will be posting soon some figures from Empress of the 93 highlanders who fought in that war.
















WW1/RCW white Russian cavalry (2)

   As a commission project I have painted up quite a bit of figures for an individual to use
for the Russian civil war. I have posted pics of a small amount of them but I decided to
post these which are a second group of 12 white lancers....I already have posted the
first group previously. I followed his desire for uniform appearance except for the one
office which I chose to put in a lighter tunic....for visual appeal. The customer will base
these miniatures.
