Yet more Thirty Years War stuff......

Over the Xmas hols I have managed to stay sober enough to finish quite a few figures, but first up is a close up of my Imperial Harquebusiers.
 The Imperial forces now have a substantial artillery train of one heavy and three medium pieces. A mix of Warlord, TAG and 1st Corps.
 I thought I'd give the imperialists a sniper, as there was I think (I stand to be corrected) a fledgeling jager corps of sorts.  Anyway, nice model and why not...?
 A close up of the Imperial demi culverin - Warlord miniatures.
 The ninth Imperial regiment in my army.  Probably a good time to stop?
 Above and below are my markers for disorder and casualties. The casualty markers are from Warbases and I am really pleased with both sets, although the Warlord Games 'dismembered body parts' are a tad gruesome.

 Above and below show expanded Swedish brigades, I've added a third unit of shot to each brigade.Pictured are the Yellow and Old Blue brigades which  both look rather good I reckon.

 My demi- cuylverin with master gunner added.


  1. Looking at these wargames units, it seems to me you have made liberal use of shading fluid. The effect I find absolutely astonishing. Somehow it carries the effect of realistically grimy units at the same time as a 'toy soldierish' look - a combination that is as attractive as it is unique in my observation. Splendid!

  2. Thanks Ion. Much appreciated. The army painter dip takes some getting used to - I brush it on anyway with my supply of Poundland brush sets!
