Wargaming the modern period is not everyone's cup of tea, so please skip to the end of this post for the 1812 period if that is more your thing.
As mentioned in my last post, I had been up in the loft and raided my sons toy box for some of his old die cast vehicles. These I have repainted and weathered to use along side the Warrior and jeeps that I had painted for my Brits.
I thought it would be more interesting to show the vehicles off in a few action shots. (Picture heavy)
Half way through this unit of American infantry in Scott's Brigade for the War of 1812. They still need to be varnished and the bases done but I will wait until I have painted the other eleven figures first. Although tempted, I am not starting yet another period, these figures are a commission for someone else.
A comparison shot of a Perry Miniature plastic Napoleonic and a Knuckleduster 1812 figure.
The modern figures btw are either Empress Miniatures or Eureka Miniatures. The crews in the jeeps I think are from Old Glory but not sure as I purchased them unpainted from ebay.
