My Photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

How to make: WW1 Trenches

Greetings everyone!

Hope you are all well.
In my previous post, I mentioned that I was preparing some terrain for our wargames club, based on some WW1 Scenarios we are interested to play.

I have managed to prepare some trenches, based on some photos I've collected through the web and my books and also for Sidney's blog that is full of wonderful, wonderful, wonderful models.

Below you will see (through a very basic video I had just prepared) how I begun with this:



And ended up to this:

And this is Youtube's link (It cannot be uploaded through blogger, don't ask me why...) 

I hope you like it!

Have a good Sunday night everyone!

Limber and ammunition wagon

Greetings everyone.

These past few weeks I have been on a modelling project, for the wargaming club I'm a member (a totally new period for me, I can only say that it has to do with the Great War...) and I didn't have much spare time to indulge myself with anything but.

However, below you will see some photos, of one cannon limber and one ammunition wagon, destined to serve my little men, in wars of the 18th century (WSS, GNW, Seven Years', FIW etc etc). They come from Zvezda's set (Zvezda #8058 Russian Artillery of Peter the Great) and even though each has three horses for every limber/wagon, I reckon that they would pass the test in terms of historical accuracy. The painting is somewhat generic, just for this reason (I couldn't paint the horses green, if that's you were thinking).

Anyhoo, I hope you like 'em.

















Have a great Monday night everyone.

PS: Stay tuned for the WW1 project that will follow in due course. :-)

American Civil War - Union Infantry

Hi everyone.

If you have visited my blog, you must have seen that my last post, was about some Confederate soldiers, fighting their way to victory through a ploughed field.

To make things even, I've painted some of their opponents, meaning the Blues, and placed them in the same terrain piece.  

The figures are from Imex - (Union Infantry), and some from Italeri (Union Infantry
If you care to read about the quality of them, please go to the PSR site, where their details and aspects are being thoroughly explained. They do look the part, if I may say. :-)

Their colours, in addition to their opponents' were, pretty much the same on most of the cases, as relevant photos and bibliography suggest.

I hope you like them.














Have a good Friday night everyone.
