A New Scale....well for me anyway

Decided to embark on a new period ( ECW ) and a new scale to go with it....why not ?  Here's my first ever crack at 10mm. Quiet happy with how they turned out all up and surprisingly enjoyable to paint. These are Pendraken mini's wonderful little sculpts highly recommended if ever your tempted.

Earl Of Essex Regiment of Foot...for the government.

Small Ships !

My first attempt at one of these little gems from Langton miniatures such great models it's hard to know when to stop with the detail. Could easily keep going putting more time into one of these, I had to constantly remind myself it's for the table top. Can see how people get carried away with this period...most enjoyable.
This is a Napoleonic French 76 gun 3rd rater in topsail and jib..... 3 more similar to do before finishing off this squadron.
I was going to use 'Signal Close Quarters-Fast Play' from Langtons but recently also purchased 'Kiss Me Hardy' from Too Fat Lardies which could be the ticket after reading through them they sound like a lot of fun. I also like rules that mess around with the -I go you go- style of play. KMH could be the bizz. More to come ;-)

Impetus Baroque- First 28mm Game

Our first outing with these armies using Baroque. They have both been recently rebased for the rules which should be out any day now....can't wait. We played this game using a 'play testing' edition.
Ralph's Bavarian v my French. Figures are almost all from the Grand Alliance Dixon range and painted in enamels....old school ;-)
Pinched a few pictures from Rich M's blog Working on the Lead Mountain
