For those of you that love alliteration.

28mm American War of Independence - Perry Miniatures

I couldn't help myself. I got my hands on some of the Perry Miniatures range for the American War of Independence, and before you know it, I'm painting  the 28mm big brothers to my 10mm project of the same era. On the other hand, it'll be a nice change for people sick of my never ending stream of photos of 6mm and 10mm figures. Below are 6 stage by stage shots of a pair of chaps from the British Grenadier command pack (standing). My apologies for the quality of the camera work, as per I have had to resort to my iPhone, which means a lot of my hard work is wasted. Still, hopefully these are mildly interesting to someone!

 Oops - this one seems to have slipped out of the order of things!

A couple of front and back shots to finish with!

Pendraken 10mm WWII (High Res. 2)

That seems to have worked, so here are some more, this time showing some of the Volksgrenadiers and their Fallshcirmjaeger buddies, as well as a couple of other sundry shots of some US armour and a little command vignette. Have a click of the thumbnails to bring them up and see what you think. I'm currently taking requests for the colour of the background in future!

Pendraken 10mm WWII (High Res. 1)

My father was kind enough to lend his greater knowledge of photography (and his excellent camera) to the cause to produce these shots of my American and German Ardennes collection. I'll put the rest up in a separate post whilst I see whether or not the upload process has altered the images. 

Pendraken 10mm AWI - Basing Splurge

A mixture of units at different stages of completion (both on and off my work-station). I've decided not to post more of the other units that aren't quite polished off to preserve interest. When the British Foot Regiments and Co. are done I'll pop them up independently. If I can wrangle it, I will also arrange some high-res photos too.

10mm Pendraken Miniatures - American War of Independence

Some of the many shots of my work in progress AWI project. The quality of the castings in this range is just superb. For information sake, I have the 1777 campaigns in mind when painting these.

 I've painted five different uniform variations of one stand each, prior to finishing the units fully, in order to see which schemes I like. There are divergent hats, waistcoats, trousers, facings etc. in most, and certain deliberate aberrations of reality. Above are (left to right); 1st New Hampshire (in a very uniform set-up), and a unit that could be one of a number of Continental regiments, in this case I'll plump for the 2nd New York.
 Another fairly generic and uniform unit, let's say the 4th Virginia.
One of the Massachusetts regiments. 

 A pair of Royal Artillery brass 6pdrs.
 Patriot Militia battle-line. Steady and straight now, but for how long..?
A close-up of the same.
 Continental Artillery, in the form of a 5.5" howitzer.
 Some riflemen. Could be rangers, Over the Mountain men, or Philadelphia Associators or even plain old Patriot Militia Riflemen.
Continental firing line in hunting shirts. Could be any one of a number of units, but I like to think of them as either being from Delaware of Maryland.

Next time; the British are coming... redcoats sighted!

Photos Galore

Some more 6mm Napoleonics to enjoy, for an introduction, see the previous post. Please.

It Lives!

It would seem that the new blog is up and running... "Tim's Tiny Tanks" is dead, long live "Massed Miniature Marvels!" That is for the few hundreds of you out there that might have come across my previous blog in any case.

So welcome to those viewing this page for the first time, old and (mostly) new. This is intended to showcase my various endeavours in the field of wargaming. Mostly it will contain photographs of my many projects, which always seem to remain just around the corner from being completed. It will hopefully also act as a point of contact to those of you wishing to seek me out to do commission work. For now, here are a couple of snaps whilst I get this blog up and running.
