TMPr's getting back to basics, what are you working on? Please post pics if you can?

I'm finishing 3 battalions of Calpe Prussians with pictures below. The last of my army I started over 2 years ago. When finished it will be just under 1000 figures.





Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut27 Jun 2017 11:09 p.m. PST

I just finished SAGA/Lion Rampant Dark Ages Irish. I am sporadically working on 3mm WW2 Japanese aircraft. I am in the assembly stages of an Irish company for Pikeman's Lament, and in the painting stage of a Bolt Action platoon of Imperial Japanese.

15mm ancient Spanish. I'm 75% of the way through!

More 28mm stuff for the Italian Wars – it's a collection I thought was done but just keeps growing. It's just passed the 1700 figure mark, and I still have 112 figures in the lead pile, 48 on the workbench, and immediate orders planned for another 60 or so – then I WILL stop and go back to the 28mm Napoleonic project which has only 170 figures painted and 1200 in the lead pile.

28mm Perry plastic Prussians with metal fusilier conversion set. Last of three 32 man battalions of Fusiliers almost completed. Need to do the Musketeers next.

Personally – AWI… ordered a few packs from Baccus in 6mm, then Warlord Games did a 50% off sprue sale so I bought a load of 28mm as well!

Commercially (as I paint full time on commission for other folks) – 28mm Test of Honour, 15mm Zombie Apoc, some Walking Dead minis, a bunch of 'Burrows and Badgers'… and about to start a lot of 10mm Naps!

Best place for photos is probably my Facebook page –

I'm in a dead spot right now after finishing my 28mm Dark Africa gunboat with swappable crew, guns, and flags.

Probably be working on finishing off about 100 British and allies for Dark Africa when I get motivated again.

28mm Romans, 20mm early WWII French, 20mm WWII US, a pile of 1/600 planes, and what ever else that floats to the top in the pile of unpainted that catches my eye.

I'm close to finishing about 34 1/285 CinC modern US tanks and AFVs.

28mm Perry AWI for Muskets and Tomahawks. About half way through the rebels and then I'll get started on a box of Loyalists.

28m Franks for Aetius and Arthur / Hail Caesar. Just started now that I have largely wrapped up my Viking Age project.

Some 28mm ECW in the pipe and some point but they are just for variety right now.

I am still recovering from painting a 5 by 5 walled town.


I have begun cleaning up the game room and sorting my paint back into their spots on the painting shelf. The work was finishe in 4 months.


45thdiv28 Jun 2017 5:48 a.m. PST

I have tried to fix that link, but my phone is not cooperating. I will repost later. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.


KSmyth28 Jun 2017 5:56 a.m. PST

Working on my Louisiana Project--a hypothetical conflict between the United States and Spain on the border 1796-1810. Yes, that's weird, but I'm over it.

This very moment I'm adapting The Men Who Would Be King for the period. Also making it suitable for the war in the Northwest (Wayne's Legion.)

Then I want to remount all my singly based figures to a 3-2-1 version for ease of set up/take down, movement and storage. My big summer project. Haven't gotten far yet. Shooting for playtests July 8th and 14th.

VCarter Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2017 6:22 a.m. PST

Sitting back and admiring my recently completed Heritage LOTR orcs (The upgrade has been in the works since 2005).

Thanks for replying Gents!
I counted 5 of you painting up AWI. I never realized how popular this period was?
A few more are finishing projects like myself.Love to see some photos.

Olicana, wow 1700 Italian Wars, again photos please!

377CSG, PRUSSIANS!!! BIG battalions! Photos, once again!

45th Div, that is an absolutely gorgeous wall town, thanks for sharing!

KSmyth, Louisiana project, love it! Tell us more, pics please!

My next project is to finish off some units for my Burgundian army. Also add some landsknechts for later French period.

Just finishing my platoon of Imperial Stormtroopers…will post pics when I finish, promise!

goragrad28 Jun 2017 11:46 a.m. PST

Shoehorning in some chariots and elephants to enable me to field all three of the DBA early Book 2 Indians and the Book 1 Vedic for BBDBA without having to substitute any elements. That and rebasing some painted Normans and early Feudal KN I just got off ebay that will flesh out some Anglo-Normans and First Crusade armies.

This puts them ahead of the MIR legionaries and auxilia, Sarmatian KN, Early Armenian KN and LH, Ch'in HCH, Frankish WB, Tibetans, Alan LH, Thebans, and some more skellies for HOTT.

I generally paint a color or two per session so have various armies at different stages of progress at the same time until I get to the point of wrapping one up.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2017 11:46 a.m. PST

Just finished mounting a couple of platoons of 25mm French WWII infantry. Some 25mm figures for some HOTT armies are next on the list.

Basing another 150 Peter Pig and Mikes Models figures for the Sudan.

Wow, I thought my link did not work. Testing on my phone sent me to the log in page.

@wrgmr1 – I'm glad you liked it. This was a labor of love. I still have it sitting on my table. I have small detail work left on the buildings, but I needed a break.


cavcrazy28 Jun 2017 1:31 p.m. PST

On the workbench are 28mm Byzantines and Republican Romans.


Hlaven Supporting Member of TMP28 Jun 2017 2:37 p.m. PST

The 4 Saxon tents are Renedra. The Viking tents and building were basic mdf kits that I added tent material. The house I added my own wooden planking made from thin coffee stirers. Lots of flocking, grass tufts, and Hudson Allen pine boughs on the roof.

45thdiv28 Jun 2017 2:49 p.m. PST

The tents look really cool.

Thomas et. al, I've updated my blog regarding my Louisiana project, with links to previous photos and work I've done. It's a long story, but if you're interested.
