Royal Marines

                                         Hi gents,
A few shots of the latest additions to my collection Brigade Games Marines, Perry French and some other bits.
Ainsty castings harbour set I painted this week.
Perry 21st line painted by Dave Jarvis.
Royal marines from Brigade games.
These to be based in the future.
Marine painted by the war office these come with separate heads which Tony said were quite fiddly to fix on.
More of Dave's work this time in amongst Ainsty grave stone set again painted by me.
Heads may have been fiddly but sculpts are great.
More guns from the War office next week.
Warlord figure painted by Dave.
I am going to Carronade next weekend so I thought it appropriate to post a pic of what I actully look like.
 If you are lucky enough to be attending and see me wandering around please do say hello.


  1. Beautiful figures and wonderful photos Willie. Great to be able to put a face to the name too. Hope you enjoy next weekend.

  2. I agree those are really beautiful figures.

  3. Great work, sir! The faces are really beautiful!
    Enjoy next week-end!

  4. Oh goodness you are making the Napoleonic era very, very tempting! I've not long finished watching my box set of Hornblower and was considering dipping my toe into this vast world of modelling goodness!

  5. Lovely stuff Willie. The scenery really does make the figs come to life. I'll try looking out for you at Carronade next Saturday

  6. Inspirational scenes - food for thought on some great possibilities. Best, Dean

  7. Very nice and have a good time!


  8. Great bunch of troops, and posed professionally, Cecil B. You should be in the movies!

  9. Fantastic work Willie, the 'Provost Marshal' and I are planning a little project with the same dock, just hope it looks half as good as yours.

  10. Your collection of figures and terrain are superb and you show them off to their best with your camera work.

  11. Lovely figures and beautiful scenery. Great imagination and a nice selection of painters. To be honest though that last figure looks a bit rough and the colour has really washed out. . . .
