And close up of the infantry action on the defender side of the bridge. The taunts were much more damaging than the missile fire.
At the top of the photo the Plucky Pikemen charge the pesky Mercenaries. While at the bottom, the Halberds and Spearmen go at it.
Mercenary sandwich anyone? Routing archers in the upper left, that's the defending halberds behind and with their backs to the left most cavalry unit.

First up, the brave warriors of the Czar. These are Old Glory figures, and consist of left over odds and ends from other packs.
I still can't get Cossacks to stay focused for photos. I'm sure it isn't anything to do with my photo skills - LOL
For the first little skirmish I have planned for my parallel world solo campaign I needed another unit of formed archers. These are Revenge Miniatures figures. It's the first time I've used any of these figures. The sculpts seemed a little 'slight' in stature and had a very annoying amount of flash on them. They did have a nice assortment of poses and painted up easily.
And now we unveil the 2008 layer of the lead pile. FOW WWII American Engineer Platoon. As I was painting these I couldn't believe that prior to 2009 all of my Napoleonic figures were 15mm. Damn, 15mm is small. Especially when you desperately need an eye exam and new glasses and you can't get them because everything is closed. I also uncovered a couple of packs of the American Armored Recon Platoon.
That's it for now. Stay safe.
So much lead, so little time.

Sorry about the focus (or lack thereof) I miss the old SLR cameras

I think the Cossack's attitude may have rubbed off on them, they don't seem to want to stay in focus either.

In the lead are two companies of the Fuddland Diplomatic Guards, resplendent in their signature carrot plumes. These stalwart fellows represent the finest of the Fuddland Guard/Grenadier corps. Each member of the Diplomatic Guards is able to read and write, a rare skillset in Fuddland. Additionally they have all been specially trained in ways to protect important personages. While they all excel at planting bayonets in opponents chest, they also do double duty as embassy staff, cooks, clerks, etc.
