New pens = (!)

My brother gave me a pen set for my un-birthday and I love it!

Here are the French 5th infantry unit holding their own against the Prussian Cuirassiers.

I have always enjoyed drawing climactic battles. I don't know why I haven't done more in the past! History is more fun with battle pictures to go with it!

Coming soon...

The French Chronicles is almost ready and the site is coming along nicely!

And below, my friends, is a glimpse of our exhausted heroes after the long and desperate Battle of Waterloo. Unfortunately for them they were French.

Napoleonic miniatures

Collecting miniature soldiers and playing 25mm war games has been my latest hobby. I have been painting them for about two years. All the ones that I have painted have been 25mm.

But this weekend I decided to try my luck at the 54mm dragoon.

The 24mm right and the 54mm on the left

Horse Close ups...

I added dirt and miniature flowers to the base...
