Laurence of Arabia Railway Ambush Diorama

As the first and well overdue post of 2018 I thought I'd upload some photos I took at the Newark National Civil War Centre where there is currently a temporary exhibition on about TE Laurence. The most notable exhibit is a diorama of the famous train ambush using 28mm figures.

Apologies if the photos are a bit blurry

                         Laurence himself- the figure seems to be the one made by Copplestone

Definitely worth visiting as well along with exhibitions about  Newark during the ECW.

GNW 15mm Project: Early steps

I have began collecting some Swedish figures to begin a 15mm Great Northern War collaboration project. For this I recently purchased an assorted starter army from Irregular Miniatures with a mixture of infantry and Cavalry and one artillery piece.

Currently I am having to decide on my final basing scheme and flag sizes. Will post more in the course of the New Year hopefully.

Northstar 1672 range Musketeers & Pikemen

This has been part of a project I started when I ordered the equivalent of 2 units of infantry from Northstar's 1672 range. While I haven't tried to be specific about nationality,they are have been painted to potentially represent some generic French troops of the Army of the Sun King around 1680. With one unit completed they recently fought(and fell) at a club game of the battle of Aughrim. Should start working on the rest at some point in the near future as well as getting some command figures.
