I'm preparing a 15mm British army for the Peninsula in anticipation of Dave Brown's Napoleonic follow up to Pickett's Charge. Truth be told many of the figures have languished half painted for many years but I am now motivated to do what is intended to be the entire British army in in the Peninsula in 1813. They are only on the old-fashioned twelve figure battalion standard because I have so many other Napoleonics - French, Russian, Austrian and various others - already done that way but I think theylook nice. I replaced all the pewter flag poles with florists’ wire in order to fit the new GMB colours which are now easily ¾”.
15 generals, 168 infantry, 102 cavalry, 15 guns

A few Soviet vehicles in 15mm. A group of five Flames of War T-72s – the second batch I’ve done – in plastic; very nice kits.

A group of Soviet recce vehicles – T-72s, BMP-1s, BTR60s and BRDM2s – all Old Glory/Skytrex; not as nice as the plastic T-72s but nice at the price.
