Hi gents,

A few shots of my Peninsular collection.After visiting Pats (War gaming with Silver Whistle blog) I thought I would do a few shots tonight .I think Pat has set the bar really high on what pics can look like and wow is he creative with his conversions! I know we all don't have the best camera or lighting for a set up but one thing we all have is a great passion for the hobby I really love seeing all the work out there.Here is a 30minute set up  I do these while cooking dinner for the wife and I, although I do have the advantage of not having to clear them away right off..
Unashamedly trying to do a Gaskin WI set up.

I now love Napoleonic figures these were once on the fringe of my interest.

A lot of this is down to Bill Gaskins fantastic collection.

This collection has been the main stay of 2012.

The 95th were the first unit Dave Jarvis did for me.

The Spanish gunner is by me .

The Spanish is now a size able force.

Figures by me Dave and the war office

Loads of singly based voltigers arrived today from the war office.

These will be very handy once I actually get to game.

Perry figures

Brigade games figures now.

Perry and foundry British.

Same again with a few plastic prone figures.

last shot is the Brits.
More through the week.
Best wishes
Willie
