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)!!

Hat #8186 Peninsular War British Infantry - what????

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well. 
As most of you that follow my blog, you must have already noticed that I paint models destined to play in WW2 theatres. Well, that was until today - or last Monday to be honest. 
In my last post, I told you about a game I was going to play with Dimitris ( Bridge across the river Die) based on the SDS rules.
It was a fun game to play (even though that Dimitris beat the hell out of me). I had a great time! Dimitris has helped me a lot, since I was completely ignorant about the rules. 

But, this game had its price. I liked the figures very much. And with the correct ''guidance'' of Dimitris, I decided to switch to the ''Dark Side''...the painting Napoleonic figures side.....However, I promised to my self to paint only 10-20 figures of them. The SDS rules is for skirmish games. Not a lot of figures, but a lot of fun while playing. My kind of thing actually. 

I got to my local hobby store after work today, and bought a kit of Redcoats. I got Hat's #8186 Peninsular War British Infantry.  It was an easy choice....I have lived in England for quite a while. ;-)

So, not any painted figures in this post. Just a notification of my ''betrayal''. :-)

Have a great Pre-Friday night everyone! :-)


  1. Oh Thanos, what have you done?........:P

  2. You will be using colour Thanos! I'm looking forward to this one.

  3. LOL welcome to the dark side, Napoleonics are one of my favourite periods, I love the colourful uniforms, great fun, looking forward to your progress.

  4. ah well you only went from a popular period to another popular one, its not really any type of dark art like those people who game with bronze age stuff, or heavens forbid sci-fi in 1/72.

    hmm I guess moderns might fit into some category in-between.

  5. For some reason unknown to me all of the local shops refuse to get this set into stock. I find it rather frustrating as it's got a few nice uniform variants so multiple brigades could easily be done from the one box for a game like Black Powder. Ah well....

  6. of course like your web site however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I
    find it very bothersome to inform the reality nevertheless I'll definitely come back again.
