Troops from Rutenia....

After some careful negotiation (including supplies of arms from Fenwick and a guarantee of support from the Imperium) the Principality of Rutenia has declared itself independent from Begovia and is now an ally of Wittenberg....

A mounted contingent of troops from Rutenia has travelled to the small monastery at Kernow in the north of Wittenberg's Zinzendorf province.  Watched by some locals and General Waldebeck the Rutenian Battle Banner of St George (held in safekeeping in the monastery for 50 years) is handed over ....
 The battle banner of St George is shown to the waiting Rutenian cavalry...
 The Rutenian troops leave with General Waldebeck and his escort....
 they will travel south-west to join the Wittenberg troops stationed at Partoki in the centre of the Nastrovian Plains.

Casting extras for Wittenberg Infantry ....

All the casting I wanted to do for now has been completed. Enough 40mm figures to bring my garrison regiment to full strength...
I decided that I ought to have a battalion of grenadiers, so cast the necessary figures and separate grenadier heads.It was slow work attaching the alternate heads and fixing some casting fluffs. In addition I cast a Creartec mounted officer and tweaked it changing the head to one from Sash & Sabre.

28mm: Sculpt - March Attack Musketeer

For some time I've been planning to have a go at some sculpting in 28mm. Finally decided to have a go at a march attack musketeer. After a couple of false starts... the third attempt seemed to be going somewhere so I persisted with it. Now it is finished and looks reasonable...


It has a number of imperfections which need fixing before I put it in a mould. What next ? I'm going to try a horse and dragoon rider.

Casting some figures ....

Nice hot day today so went out to the garage to melt metal and cast some figures. Main point of today was to try out my new metal melting pot...
The beastie is from Prince August, who were also doing a half price bundle deal with it for 10bars of model metal. Much easier to use than melting metal in ladles on a hotplate. I managed to cast up enough figures to bring my 40mm garrison regiment up to full strength - before it got to hot in the garage  :)

Finished a sculpt for an Ottoman style horse archer...
a modified Spahi style figure. The Begovian army will have some of these once I get a mould done.
