Elite Company Stands for Queenstown Heights

Here are the two stands of elites to go with my Canadian Militia and 2nd US Artillery from the previous posts.

In the Volley & Bayonet Wing Scale games these can be important units as they can either screen the front of a line or urge their comrades forward in a charge!

Let me know what you think!

New British Militia Stands

Here are the promised pics of my British Militia stands that I just finished painting. The stands still have to be finished but I really like these figures which are from the Knuckleduster range.

These will be among the defenders of the Canadian side of the Niagara in my Queenstown Heights scenario.

Let me know what you think.

Pictures of 2nd US Artillery

Here are the promised pictures of my newly painted pictures of the 2nd US Artillery.

The stands still have to be finished, however, I am pretty happy with the figures themselves. These units will be spearheading the American crossing of the Niagara in my Queenstown scenario!

Let me know what you think!

Two New 1812 Units

I have completed two new units for the War of 1812. There is one British/Canadian and one American. Both of the units are for my Queenstown Heights game. The first unit is a battalion of Canadian Militia in round hats. The figures are from the fine Knuckleduster range including center company, flank company and command packs. I really like the figures and because of the wealth of detail of the sculpts, they are pretty easy to paint.

The other unit is the 2nd US Artillery serving as a battalion of infantry. The figures in the this unit come from the Old Glory War of 1812 range and are the regular infantry poses painted in Artillery colors. The figures are pretty well detailed and they didn't take that long to paint - at least not once I got going on them!

With these two units painted, my Queenstown Heights OOB is complete with the correct figures and I am ready to do a second playtest of the scenario. Hopefully I can get that game in during the month of January.

I know that I owe photos of my buildings and now these figures. I am having camera issues right now, but as soon as I get those issues resolved, I will get photos up so everyone can see the new additions.

New Buildings

I have completed painting some Native American buildings and a small farmhouse for my War of 1812 battlefields. I didn't do anything fancy with the paint jobs, but they came out ok.

I will try to get some photos taken this weekend and get them up on the blog.
