A few Sherman's

Just finished these up the other day. Needed a break from multiple projects just limping along. See previous post. Going to eliminate at least one project. I want to complete my FOW project before I move on. Recently decided I need more playing time and less building and painting time. I already have a couple large armies. 15mm Napoleonic and 28mm Saxon-Viking. I'd like to do more skirmish gaming and posting on here which as you can see has been very sparse. I want to share more. Have a great day!

EIR and Celt project for sale!

I have come to the realization that this project will never get done and I would rather focus my efforts more on skirmish gaming due to time available to paint and play. I would prefer to make this one sale or I can split between the Celts and EIR but I don’t want to split past that. What would be ideal is to deliver this to the buyer at Cold Wars if possible. There is a mix of painted, primed and bare metal and plastic. Pictures are available upon request for serious inquiries only. The count is as follows.

Wargames Factory Celts (10 still on sprues with extra accessories on sprues as well)
Crusader Celts (16 primed in black with flesh and mail started)
Crusader Chariots (2 built but bare with two crew each)
Old Glory Celts (55 primed black)
Gripping Beast Metal Celts (10 primed black)
Warlord Games plastic Celts (30 built and primed black)
Black Tree Design Celts (23 painted and based on 20x20 single stands)
Black Tree Design Chariot (1 painted and based with 2 crew)
5 other painted and based Celts made up of OG, Warlord Games and GB
Total of 160 Celts asking $200
Roman mounted commanders (2 primed black)
Gripping Beast Legionnaires with command (36 primed black with flesh and metal started)
Gripping Beast Roman unit (16 painted and based for Hail Caesar)
Black Tree Design (14 painted and based singly on 20x20)
Black Tree Design (2 scorpions with 2 crew painted and based separately)
Black Tree Design (2 painted commanders, 1 mounted with standard based together and one based on 20x20)
Gripping Beast (61 unpainted legionnaires)
Gripping Beast (24 unpainted centurions, standards, and aquilifers)
Gripping Beast Auxiliary (74 unpainted)
Gripping Beast Auxiliary archers (49 unpainted)
Gripping Beast or Foundry Praetorians (7 unpainted)
Gripping Beast Ballistae crew (14 Unpainted with 6 ballistae)
Total of 302 EIR asking $350
Buy both for $500. All have shields, spears, and pilums. I have some shield decals for both I will throw in for free. Buyer pays shipping.  Thanks for looking.

Grenadier Platoons

Just completed these two platoons of FOW German Grenadiers. As a newbie to FOW I'm reading the rules and forums from various websites. One of the things I will do different I think is to base 4 figures to a base instead of five. This looks crowded but I'm still happy with them. I need to get better with the camera too.

Here are a couple Panthers I just finished as part of my FOW project. Need to dullcote them still but somehow I managed to lose my decal sheet with numbers!!

And a shot of my Saxons. About 99% done. Going to add a few more mounted and that will be about it. Going to have them go against my Vikings using Dux Bellorum, Tactica and possibly something else other than WAB.
As an excursion to the FOW German Grenadiers I'm working on this 120mm Verlinden French Napoleonic Sapper! Oils over acrylics. A lot more to go. Might need more contrast on the skin though.
A couple de-stressing trips to the lake!!
