Malta 1565

Hi Gents,
It really has been a long time since I have found the time to post been really busy with work but the collection still grows at a pace. Figures have been added to Napoleonic/ Renaissance /AWI and  Medieval over the last year below are some pics of my growing Wars of Religion collection more of these with Dave Jarvis at present.




These Janissary are a mix of Essex Redoubt and Tag

Some of the warlord wars of religion figures

Cardinal becomes a Knight

These were painted over a year ago by Dave

The cannon were painted by James Roach

Still a long way to go with this collection

A Dixon figure with arms out stretched

Redoubt Janissary conversion mounted

Able to recycle some of my Crusade Clerics

Warlord Knights

These were the old Arsenal range still a few bits to be released.

So there we have it the first post in a long time I hope to get the time to show off some more in the near future.
Best wishes
Willie

A look at the Saracen shield art and a few pilgrims

Hi gents

A few more pics to show of the artwork on the Saracen shields all painted by Dave Jarvis.
Perry miniatures

Templar escorting pilgrims
Hopefully the pic lets you see the detail

This is another of the terrain tiles by TM Terrain
Another cracking shield.
Dave's brush work looks even better in the flesh

Loads of pilgrims painted up
 
Again another intricate design
 
Saracen design is not the easiest to get right
  
last shot for now hope you enjoed the pics.

Happy new year the Crusades continue

Hi gents,

Happy new year to you all a few pics of the Crusade collection I have now picked up the terrain from TM but will have to wait until I get the lighting right to show this off properly.I did want to show this off before Christmas but after reading about the sad passing of Captain Richards whose blog was one of my personal favourites I couldn't bring myself to post until now I will really miss his creativity.

   
This small village is part of the large set up,
 
One of my favourite units of 2014
 
Villages like this were pillaged at will,
 
Each side as bad as the other
 
An appeal for a jihad

The Sultan gave the go ahead to preach the holy war.
Looking for volunteers
Many answered the call
On the horns of Hattin
Outnumbered
In 1187 a fatal blow is delivered on the Horns of Hattin
This will lead to the 3rd Crusade
The Carrion have their prey
A huge amount to come this year so drop by when you get a chance
Best wishes

Acre come together

Hi gents,

I hadn't realized it had been so long since my last post so here's a brief update on what's happening, Dave Jarvis has been painting away with some great results the terrain by TM Terrain is now complete a couple of pics below will give you a flavour of how this will look, This has ended up a lot bigger than I had first anticipated but will look great with the figures,
The Saracens' start to arrive

Acres gateway
Dave Jarvis has worked his magic again
Tower of flies in Acres harbour
Someone on the TM Terrain face book page had commented that they hoped the figures were of a quality that would complement the terrain I don't think they need to worry on that count,

The terrain piece is 1500mm wide by 5000 mm long
These guys can either be under siege or besiegers themselves

Another shot of the harbour tower which extends back to the harbour side,

 
Again these can be used inside and out of the city walls,
Once I have the terrain back at chez Anderson I will post some pics with the figures manning the walls,
Best wishes
Willie
