Running multiple social media platforms can get a bit confusing and for reasons discussed before I've not been doing blog posts as frequently as a few years ago. There was a time when most new units would have their own posts, something which I now tend to do on Facebook, the outcome of this is that I've hardly covered my 28mm Italian Risorgimento Project on here.
Look out for some more wierd and wonderful figure use over the coming months. Half of the Papal Army were French and I am currently waiting for the Perrys to release their Franco Prussian French plastic box set, if that doesn't happen in the next couple of months (I'm looking at doing this as a display game at FIASCO in October) then I will need to get some from another company.
My favourite unit so far is definitely my Papal Zouaves, a mixture of Perry Miniatures plastic ACW Zouaves and metal, kepi heads from Steve Barber Models and 36 figures strong to me it looks the business, I have another unit the same size to do along with Skirmish bases and a Commander to form a Zouave Brigade which I am really looking forward to getting on the table.
I will try and keep the blog updated a little bit more with this project as it goes along, I'm still not sure what rules I'm going to use as I've struggled to get anything specific for the period yet. I'm going to pick up a copy of Pickets Charge and see if I can Italian Risorgimento them !
They look superb, looking forward to seeing moreReplyDelete
Thanks Neil, working on a new unit this weekend 👍Delete
Fantastic and colourful display Ken.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much 👍Delete
These are superb!ReplyDelete
Thanks Simon 👍Delete
I really like the colours you've used for these units Ken. They're colourful but very natural and slightly subdued which gives a really nice overall look to the army. It's brilliant work.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much, I always try and get a "lived in" look on my figures, so that's good to hear 😀Delete
Stunning work there Ken. I much prefer Blog poststo Facebook ones or Podcasts, but that's just me!ReplyDelete
Thanks Steve, Yarkshire Gamer Podcast excepted obviously 😆Delete
This is great! What rules are you using?ReplyDelete
No idea yet 😆 I'm on the look out, there is an Italian language set called Garibaldi all’attacco that I'm trying to get my hands on, other than that I'm going to look at Picketts Charge with added Italian sprinkles 👍Delete
Beautiful work. A real feast for the eyes.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much Lee 👍Delete
Very nice Ken. I have the beginnings of this one in 15mm.ReplyDelete
Great to see the period getting some interest 👍Delete
I've enjoyed seeing this come together over the past few months. Nice to see a group post.ReplyDelete
Cheers mate, a unit a week keeps the Dr away 😆Delete
Excellent looking display!ReplyDelete
I put in my first order for Shako64 and they arrived today, as promised, after 4 days via UPS. I have placed another order tonight (plus some Gringo goodies). I plan on using the old Crusader "Rank & File" rules as they are easy to pick up and give a fun game.
Cheers Matt, good to see Shako 64 landing in the UK 👍 If I expand my Project beyond Mentana I may well come back to them for some figures 👍Delete
I love your miniatures. I've got both "garibaldini all'attacco " books,core and expansion. Do u need traslation?ReplyDelete
If you have one that would be amazing 👍Delete
Ok,I'll do itDelete
