1st US Infantry Division, 1812

Continuing on with the American force from the War of 1812 for my reenacting friend David, for use with the Sharp Practice ruleset. These are Old Glory 25mm US Infantry in the 1812 coatees, which look quite a bit like blue versions of the British uniform of the time.

Bases are magnetic 20mm squares, allowing for dynamic adaptability between rulesets. I am currently experimenting with refrigerator magnets as movement trays vs. sheet metal. Basing is somewhat simple, using only sand (painted of course), ground foam, and some small bits of static grass.

Next in line for the US in 1812 are the 1st ID command figures, mainly ensigns and musicians. After that I'll try my hand at some American Riflemen.

British Napoleonic Infantry Close Up

I've been playing with camera settings tonight, and the above is the result of a lot of fiddling. Camera set to TV mode (time variant), shot with diffused light coming from the sides, white balance corrected in Photoshop, to counter the effects of indoor lighting. The model is an existing part of my British Penisula War collection.

Hearts of Oak

I have been working on a set of Brigade Games 28mm Royal Navy shore party figures that Loni gave me for Christmas, and these are some of the most accurately clothed figures I have ever seen.

Miniatures Photography

One of the hardest battles of showing miniatures work online is the ability to get a photograph that does your painting justice.
