It's been a while, but I just wanted to show what I've been painting recently.
Command bases for my Napoleonic Dutch-Belgian troops. As usual all Perry Miniatures.

Prinz Bernard von Saxe-Weimar

Nassau mounted infantry officer

The "wound" markers are also ready.
Three bases, one for each upcoming battalion of the 2nd regiment. Those are being build as "large" battalions in (our) Black Powder terms, so each regiment will be 36 figures strong.
Already two finished, and currently working on the third. once this is ready, pictures here!

My Dutch-Belgian devision, started many moons ago is nearly finished now. After this regiment, I only need to paint two more guns and two brigade commanders.
Since a few more club members showed interest in Napoleonics, I started painting my own again.
On the other side, I bought quite a few new unpainted Perry's at Crisis past weekend... Another post may follow about Crisis.

As a side note, I also painted a few loose fantasy figures, which will eventualy get there own blog post.

More Aureola Rococo Knights.

I've been painting historical miniatures for a while now, so it is maybe time for a short break. A few months ago, I could finaly buy the few figures I was missing to build another two units. Many thanks to Dave from Caliverbooks, who owns Miniature Figurines (or Minifigs for short) for bringing them back into production!
I believe my Knight s of the Silver Rose army is now finished, having at least one of each of the produced miniatures.

The new recruits are a unit of spearmen.

As usual the flag is a free download, originaly from Perry Miniatures' Korean range. I painted a linear B symbol on it, to show the ancient character of these troops, as I did with all other units before.
The other unit is armed with the fearfull (and magical) double action blowpipe.

This is the only unit in the army that doesn't have a flag, I think they don't need one since they use a shooting weapon and normaly don't come into hand to hand combat. Or at least they hope so.

That's it, my fantasy army is ready for battle!
Maybe some pictures of the complete army?

I hope you like the look of the army. It was a great pleasure to paint them. I finaly have the army I dreamed of as a 15 year old! It's only that I'm now ...51.

As always, any comments welcome!
