6mm Napoleonic update, and a bit of EPIC too!

Now then,

I have been generally plodding on with various bits and bobs this week, normal score really, im totally unfocused and cant stick with one project at a time....

First up I have done the movement trays I got from warbases a few months ago.

I have made a base for each of my line infantry Battalions, each with their own unit label so there is no confusion who is who during the heat of battle!

 Terrain update!

I have made a couple of small hills, and painted up some MDF templates to use for my woods, put together with my other stuff im thinking they look ok. I must remember to put a piece of paper in between the hills though, as the heat over here is making them stick together, hence the bits of damage on the tops of the hills....

Here is an Austrian Infantry brigade, complete with supporting position battery, in their new movement trays, with the Artillery taking advantage of the new hill.

The Brigade from the rear showing all the units labels, and annoyingly, the heat damage on the hill...

Close up or Infantry Regiment 46, in Battalion masse, holding an important road junction.


Ive been continuing with the Epic stuff as well, the Novamarines are nearing completion, finally.

 Bike company, 3 detachments of bikes and a bike mounted commander. The Commander is a conversion as is the bike itself.

2 Units of Imperial Robots. I had to have them in a different colour scheme, as the blue and white is getting tedious!

I have also painted up a test base for my Tau force...

Bloody difficult to paint, these figures are tiny, and have loads of detail...


Thats about it for now,
Cheers for looking,


  1. Looks great, especially the (difficult) minis on the last pic!

    1. These are OTC miniatures from onslaught. They are great figures.

  2. Very tidy looking Napoleonic battlefield. The Austrian bases are terrific.

    Outstanding brushwork on the EPIC figures!

    1. Thanks, just need some enemies for them (both) now!

  3. Wonderful projects. So let me get this straight, as you get older, you move from 15mm to 6mm?
    You must be blessed with great eyes!

  4. Nice work mate. The movement trays are very nice and the unit names are a great touch. Good to see Epic getting some love too...

    1. The name tags are just a bit of OCD creeping in maybe, and as for epic, its such a great game that it deserves all the love it can get!

  5. Naps are looking tidy in those movement trays,BTW did you get DBA3 from Fanaticus site yet? it free until it gets the publishing issues sorted.

    1. No, I hadnt realized that it had (finally) been released. I gave up on it after reading some of the silly arguments that started about it!

      Ill have a look though.

      I have Mighty armies ancients, which is very similar but with a bit more to it and less of the geometry and crazy hard to read rules...


  6. The6mm austrians on the bases are brilliant. What base size are you using for the inf companies of 6 figs and also the artillery bases and limbers? Are they to any particular rule set?

    1. Hi Mark,

      The infantry bases are 25mm x 15mm. I have rebased everything now as they proved to be too small and fiddly, lots of miniatures were getting broken!

      Everything is now based up for Blucher, on big 80mm x 60mm brigade bases.
