WIP Roman watchtower

After so many battles with just a piece of paper 2BWx2BW to represent their camp, time came for my DBA Romans armies to have a proper camp. Considering that most of the battles were fought on the limes, I thought that a watchtower would have been a nice addition to the usual palisade.

Inspiration came from some pictures I found online of the plastic Zvezda Roman fort, now out of production and out of stock almost everywhere. Good thing is that the pictures come with the size of the tower and its components, which made easier the design of my wood replica.

I used cotton candy sticks and coffee wood stir sticks, which I looted here and there in the city at no cost.


A razor for cutting, white glue for assembling. It is shaping up pretty well.

L'empereur

Long time since my last post. I kept on painting and playing, though. I just didn't find time for photographing my work and posting. Anyway....here two pictures of a brushwork I am really proud of. Napoleon and his friend Marengo. I did them for a painting duel on the Benno's Figure Forum.
The figure is from the Italeri box "French imperial general staff".

Régiment Normandie - WSS

My Louis XIV army now counts two infantry regiments. Painting in 15mm is always a pleasure; it's always a surprise seeing how such small figures look great on the table. 







Napoleonic French line infantry in winter coat

Another addition to my Grande Armée. Again, I am happy with result of my brushwork and how great they look on the battlefield.








Napoleonic French foot artillery

It's been a productive three month period. After the dragoons, here come three pieces of artillery. Not bad at all. 










Napoleonic French dragoons

I break this 3 months silence with my first unit of French cavalry. I like these dragoons a lot. I spare any other word and let the pictures speak on my behalf.

Later Chartaginian - DBA II/32

I took a break from nappies. Ancients were calling, punic wars are planned for Easter break. Here comes my speed-painted speed-based DBA Chartaginian army. Playing with an unpainted army is stain on my honor.
