About Me

A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

Finished - More SYW Russian Infantry Day 5

OK, so I got the bases dry-brushed and flocked this morning and took pics, before spending several hours sorting out the scenario, map, force lists, player briefings and figures for tonight's Gruntz game. I'm now in a bit of a rush to get this posted before I head out to the club!

So, piccies of the finished figures:


My cunning plan of using the 6 leftover "at ready" figures worked a treat!




The musketeer who lost his bayonet is being kept under close scrutiny by his colonel.

Well, there I go - another four regiments completed, taking my army to 16 foot regiments (4 grenadier, 12 musketeer). For my next trick I want to expand my cavalry from 10 to 16 regiments - 3 more horse grenadiers, 1 more dragoons and two more hussars I think are the order of the day. And perhaps a commander in hussar uniform.


  1. As usual impressive and quick.

  2. Jeez you work so quickly girl!! Lol great stuff as always ;-)

  3. A lesson in fielding a fighting force in little time.
    Well done!

  4. Beautiful uniforms and impressive paint job!

  5. I know nothing of the war or the army or uniforms but even so I can spot quality when I see it.

  6. Top work Tamsin......if only the differant regts had differant uniforms!! Bet you're sick of green and red?

  7. Very nice units Tamsin. Great flags.

    @ Jonathan F - thanks! Not quite enough here for a full fighting force, but when you add them to the rest of my army they certainly are :)

    @ Phil - cheers! :)

    @ Martin C - thanks! :)

    @ Clint - cheers! I didn't know a lot about the uniforms until I started work on this army. Thankfully I was able to find plenty of good sources :)

    @ Ray - thanks! It does get a bit monotonous - thank goodness for the hussars! :)

    @ Pete - cheers! :)

    @ Peter D - thanks! Glad you like the flags - they're a bit impressionistic, but at this scale that's all you need :)
