Old new additions and a bit of thinning out


Hi Gents,
Some old new additions these were done a while back by Dave Jarvis but some of them never made it onto here so thought I would post a few pics. Thinning out refers to a bit of rationalising of the collections
I actually have two collections for the Peninsular War one by Dave the other by Tony at the War office both are great but different styles Tony's being more gritty. I have started thinning out the collection a bit to allow space for the new additions a few bits and pieces by Phil Olley and Tony went via eBay last week hope the new homes those items went too enjoy them as much as I did.
 A few of the collections seen on the blog will be going up for sale at some point in the near future the Peninsular war by Tony being one of these Carlist and Crimea also on the short list to go.

Rag tag Brits from Perrys

Old Boney

Old Spanish conversion with Perry body and Bicorne head.

I still have to base these properly have loads at this stage.



Light Officer with his hounds

More of the Glasgow Regiment I have two standard bearers for this unit but read some where they didn't carry them which is a shame if true haven't made my mind up whether to add them or not.

Thanks for stopping by

Malta 1565

Hi Gents,
It really has been a long time since I have found the time to post been really busy with work but the collection still grows at a pace. Figures have been added to Napoleonic/ Renaissance /AWI and  Medieval over the last year below are some pics of my growing Wars of Religion collection more of these with Dave Jarvis at present.




These Janissary are a mix of Essex Redoubt and Tag

Some of the warlord wars of religion figures

Cardinal becomes a Knight

These were painted over a year ago by Dave

The cannon were painted by James Roach

Still a long way to go with this collection

A Dixon figure with arms out stretched

Redoubt Janissary conversion mounted

Able to recycle some of my Crusade Clerics

Warlord Knights

These were the old Arsenal range still a few bits to be released.

So there we have it the first post in a long time I hope to get the time to show off some more in the near future.
Best wishes
Willie
