German Invasion!


The most illustrious Ironmitten, has very kindly (and unexpectedly) sent me this wonderful cartoon this morning.  Many thanks, Simon!

I suspect that he picked a German, because he knows that I have been on the scrounge, recently, for Germans for my next project.  Post Partizan, I want to assemble a small German army of 250 or so  miniatures.   I've been able to pick up some painted minis from eBay, some from friends (watch this space) and hopefully some from painter mate Nick Speller, who painted my sole German infantry unit, so far (below).  


They will be a nice change, from pikes!

250, small?

Oh Simon, Simon...

BigRedBat said...

Yes it does sound a bit small, Sebastofig. Perhaps 300? ;-)

Painted those pikemen, yet?

Thanks Simon it was a pleasure. I like the German who has been knocked down in the ranks. That's the beauty of bigger bases, lots more room for excellent extras.

That German reminds me of Simons Cat!
Quite a sea change moving from the sunny Levant to the dark forests of central Europe.

Regards HGA.

I bet it does not stop at 250?

250 small? 0h dear!

BigRedBat said...

Anything less than 250 would be Skirmish... and I don't do Skirmish! ;-)

The foundry figures are some of my favourites and he has done a wonderful paintjob on these.

I may have some spare Getmans I can bring to Partizan if you wish to have a look?

BigRedBat said...

Yes please Graham- I'd be very happy to have a look. Would you like to swap for something?

Cheers, Simon

Graham C said...

I will do a count this weekend, any Greek, successor etc no problem

BigRedBat said...

Graham, that's great. I have bags of spare Foundry Greeks, hoplites, peltasts, cavalry; the works.

Cheers, Simon
