Nappy Nonsense

A couple strange and bizarre things all nominally Napoleonic-ish…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

This Chap I actually finished up a couple weeks back when I did a couple Rifles stands for DBA-X, but didn’t get around to basing him. The figure is from Minifigs

Scale-wise he’s not too far off the Wargames Foundry Rifles I painted up at the end of last year.

Hmmm… In that shot he does look a bit squat – keep in mind he’s crouched over and running low…

These are some “Russians” from Alternative Armies Flintloque/Slaughterloo
miniatures. A line of Napoleonic Fantasy armies. The Russians seem to all be undead. Above are a Russian Vampire officer and a Lich (supposed to be like an orthodox preacher maybe?). I’d seen these listed on ebay for dirt cheap and have wanted to shceck out the figures for a long time. They’re crazy big….

Big and chunky…

Here they are with some of the Foundry and Minifig rifles…

They came in a box set with some Zombie Russian musketeers and an assortment of Elves (who are “French”) in tattered cold weather clothes There was some scenarios for the game in the box – which I’ve never really looked at – presumably having to do with the Retreat from Moscow (or Alternative Armies fantasy equivalent of Moscow…) .

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Zulu war stuff…? More modeling…? Gen-u-ine 1812 British?
