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)!!

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.

Rebels attacking!

Hi everyone.

Long time no see, to be exact, but many things have occured during these past few weeks. I haven't stayed idle though, but, and below you will see the results.

A couple of days ago, I started reading Bernard Cornwell's novel ''Rebel'' that describes the war between the North and the South in the States (the Blues and the Greys as I like to say) during the 1860's - the well known American Civil War. 

Inspired by it, I bought some figures from Imex - (Confederate Infantry and Union Infantry), and some from Italeri (Confederate Infantry)  and started painting them. 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. :-)

The Greys, since they had a bit of problem in terms of resources, during the war, due to the blockade dictated by the Union forces, had to wear whatever was available at the time, but they tried to keep their tunics grey, so as not to get mixed with their opponents whilst fighting. That was my intention while painting them. I tried to make them as in-consistent as possible.

I hope you like them.

Have a nice Monday evening everyone!

Α Viking Horde...unleashed!

Hi folks,

August...what a terrific word to use in order to cover up your laziness....
The thing is that not even the wind is working properly, resulting in a major nervous breakdown, everytime I try to use paints and brushes to paint...they (the paints) dry up so damn quickly.

However, night is my ally, and music (Vivaldi, cheesy enough inn'it?) is my guide.

Whilst waiting for season 3 of the notorious series ''Vikings'', I give you my first painted lot of them for your convenience. :-)
Zvezda's Vikings is the name of the set, and I'm pretty sure you are all aware of it. A most terrific set!
The colours I used, were described as a ''medley'' and were consisted mainly of earthy tones, since up there in the North, colour dyes, at the time, were not used in abundance.

I hope you like them.

Have a great Monday night everyone. More figures to follow next week (I'll be out of office, starting from tomorrow, one of my friends is getting hanged...(bugger), I meant marrying - and yes, I know, the bells are making a deafening sound towards my direction. I promise I'll respond to their call (next year, fingers crossed).
