Battle of Osgiliath MESBG

I got the new boxed set for Xmas so have started painting some of the troops up along with some of the older models i had to create a Mordor force and a Minas Tirith.  I still have the rangers and leaders to paint for Minas Tirith as well as some for Mordor.


All Quiet on the Martian Front - Prussian Army

I have hardly done any painting in the past couple of years as have been far too busy with other projects.  But this year I have had a great start and have finished my Prussian Army. I would have like to have more tanks but they are not available at the moment so I added more walkers. The miniatures are all from the Martian Empires range from Fighting 15s.

All Quiet on the Martian Front - USA Forces

I have hardly done any painting this year as have been far too busy with other projects.  But over the past few months I have managed to get a lot more of my USA forces painted.  Still some to paint but so far I now have a reasonable size force.

Turn 3 - Martians
