AWI collection growing.

 Hi Gents,

 I missed out on some very nice Hessian figure moving out of John Rays collection yesterday so to cheer myself up I got the camera out for a couple of pics of the growing AWI collection.
Figures aren't based yet but flags will be positioned correctly when they are.

A few rebels having a turkey shoot
Figures again painted by Dave Jarvis.
All sculpted by the Perry's either as part of Foundry or  Perry miniatures.

Casualty figures

A long way to go with this collection as I keep dipping in and out.

Some command figures.
 


Progress on the games room
 First cabinet on the wall two walls will have display cabinets along each length the table carcass also starting to take shape the table will allow storage of all the terrain boards it will allow a 4000 mm x 1500 mm set up with an extension piece that will allow another 1000 mm to be added when required.
I wont be moving into the new place until June so still a wee while before this is complete.
Will hopefully keep you abreast of the progress as it happens.
Best wishes
Willie

  3. Very nice, sir. 1st picture looks like a platoon just after dismissal from drill practice, running to the nearest Inn for beer and sausages.

  6. Great looking units Will and a shame you missed out on John’s Hessians as they looked quite spectacular. Those purpose built tables will certainly make a difference. I embed up dividing my 12 x 6 table into a 8x 6 and a 4 x 6 on casters so they could be seperated and moved for various scenarios. My hope is that I will be able to retrofit a support which noble me to put another panel between them on occasion to allow a 16 x 6 for some larger games.

  7. Carlo,

    Yes it was a pity but someone would have been very happy that weekend.
    I had thought about dividing the table and putting on castors but in the end went for static.What you see here is far from the finished article it's still work in progress I have now came up with the idea of a drop leaf either end of the table rather than a 1000mm extension piece.
    The table top itself will be covered in a large antique style world map which I'm hoping will look the part once finished will get some pics up on here soon.

    Best wishes

  8. Willie, with the "antique world map" to come, your WIP table above is en route to being perhaps the ULTIMATE miniature wargaming table!

    As we Jews say at the end of the Passover Seder, "Next Year in Jerusalem," so wargamers may soon say, "Next game on Willie's table"!

    PS And your AWI troops an that one display case up on the wall both look great too!
