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: US Rifle Squad 4

Another day, another "Finished" post and it is more US Paras. You may be getting almost as bored of these as I am, but never fear - there is only one more batch to go after these!

Squad Sergeant & LMG Team

Rifle Team

The Sergeant and the chap with a carbine in the LMG team are from Crusader; all the others are from Artizan.

Given the quite different styles of the Crusader and Artizan figures, I am considering a reorganisation of the figures so that the main platoon is all Artizan, with the support squads being all Crusader. As it is unlikely that i will ever field two full platoons, I may rebase the HQ squad figures as Jump Off Points.


  1. Hmm, I think the Crusader and Artisan figures look quite compatible, but these are your figures, so go right ahead with the reorganisation if it makes you happy!!!

  2. Nicely done. I am certainly not bored, great consistency on high quality. Mix the squad figures as you need, they are reasonably well suited together.

  3. Another great looking unit Tamsin

  4. @ Herkybird - they're definitely compatible heightwise/buildwise, but the style of the sculpts doesn't match up so well for these. Which is a bit odd, as many of their other ranges work well in combination. Maybe I'm just being a bit niggly for once. :)

    @ pancerni - cheers! :)

    @ Dave - thanks! :)

    @ Simon - cheers! :)

  5. Great job Tamsin on all your paratroopers!
    Big Bravo!
