Despite the festive period I have been able to make a start on the Prussian 12th Division under Hoffman as part of VI Corps. These are representing the 22nd Infantry regiment. The figures are all from Outpost miniatures and the flag is from Maverick Models.
I've also received a fresh order from Outpost, this gives me 8 artillery pieces and some extra cavalry to work on before I add anymore infantry. Once these are done I can switch over to the French which need a few additions to balance the forces out.
These are the 3rd Dragoon regiment. I'll be using these as the start of XII Division. Unlike the rest of my Prussian cavalry which are from Essex miniatures, these are from Outpost miniatures.
I've now got the first infantry regiment awaiting undercoating. Hopefully I can make progress on these shortly. I've also put in an order with Outpost for another 8 artillery pieces, some Uhlans and more Dragoons.
After spending a lot of time on other projects, I finally got the last regiment completed for 11th Division. Like the rest of the collection these are Outpost figures and represent the 38th Infantry regiment. The flag is from Maverick Models.
So that completes 11th Division as part of VI Corps. I am currently using a detachment of Hussars instead of Dragoons, simply because they are the figures I have available. I will eventially replace them with a Dragoon detachment. So here is the completed Division.
I can now look to complete 12th Division. I have all the infantry tgat I need but will need to pick up 8 artillery pieces, some Dragoons and Uhlans. Plenty to keep me occupied.
As the title says, phase 1 of my Star Wars project is complete. I.e. enough figures and terrain to get a game with. I finally managed to complete the last of my unpainted figures.
First up is an AT-ST, this is not from the Legion game, but one from Wizards of the Coast. The scale may not be quite right, but I picked this up for £10, significantly cheaper than the Fantasy flight model. The first photo has a Stormtrooper for scale.
Who doesn't love Wookies, one of the iconic races in Star Wars. So I just had to add a few to my collection. The first 3 are to complete the set of 4, I'd already painted one. Simple dark brown for the fur followed by a couple of lighter highlights and then a touch of creamaround the face.
And when you have Wookies you just have to have the mighty Chewbacca. I painted him the same as the 3 Wookies above. Pretty happy with how he turned out.
Next up was the last few Rebel figures I had left over. 1 Commando, a Fleet trooper and an Astromech.
As most of the figures are now done, I turned my attention to some extra scenery. There are 2 more landing pads, one of which is a refurbished piece of terrain. There is also the a tower and a power generator, these were 3d printed pieces that I picked up.
I've now got a couple more scenic pieces to complete as well as another AT-RT and an AT-ST.
A quick post with a some more progress on my Star Wars project as a few more complered models are added to the collection. First up is 2 Rebel commandos. I envisage using these as a stand alone sniper team. I even managed to do some camo on their cloaks. Pretty basic but I'm happy enough with them.
Next up is a landing platform and some refurbished battlefield clutter. The platform is a card printed model. I decided to just use the platform, added to some foamboard then a MDF base. Perfect for a backwater/Outer Rim space station. The clutter are just some old pieces I had lying around from a 40K project. Just required some re-basing.
As mentioned in the last post, I need to bulk out my Imperial forces. So here are 7 Imperial Scouts. Lovely poses but I must admit to not enjoying painting them. Also as the rebels got a photo shoot, I did one for the Imperials.
I'm now getting to the last few figures for this project. Will need to pick up some more as I want to round out both forces. There are also a few character figures I want. Also I fancy some of the more unusual aliens for some small scale action using Rogue Stars.
Been quite a slow week on the painting front, but still managed to add a few more figures to my Rebels. I've managed to add 5 more Rebel troopers, 2 extra pathfinders, a Medical droid, Rebel officer, my first Wookie and a second AT-RT. Sorry not the best photos taken with my mobile.
With just over 50 figures in the force I'm very happy with the progress, though my Imperial forces are now heavily outnumbered and I've still got a few more Rebels to add. An extra fleet trooper, an Astromech, 3 Commandos, 3 Wookies and the Mighty Chewbacca. I also have a 3rd AT-RT on order
So with the figures out I took a couple of pictures of the force so far.
