Rackham Mercenary Ogre Limited Edition Confrontation 32mm

Hello again, I hope you all had a good Xmas and will have an even better New Year.
Thanks again to anyone that takes time to look at my blog and to leave comments.

As for this figure its a change away from historical, but might still interest some of you?
The figure is from Rackham and represents a Mercenary Ogre, I picked this one up at the Claymore bring and buy stall and liked it mainly because of the Elephant head, which I think looks great.
As for building it and painting it, it was not an easy task, as you can probably tell. There are quite a few bits and bobs on the model and very nicely detailed.

I am back on the historical trail again and will be posting some new stuff soon.
Any comments welcome.  Again thanks for looking.  Michael

Drabant Miniatures 40mm Mounted British Officer 1701

Hello again to one and all.
A change of period again and manufacturer but still a 40mm figure.
This is a mounted British officer from 1701 by Drabant miniatures.  These are lovely sculpted models but not the cheapest, I managed to pick this one up on Ebay, as you do. Only problem with it was that the stirrups and straps were missing as well as pistols and holders, so out with greenstuff and paper clips and new ones were sculpted by myself.
End result is comparable to originals so I am happy with outcome.
I am now running out of space in my display cabinets so it might be time to have a clearout of my painted figures.  I might make an effort in the New Year to Ebay some of my older figures and make space for newer ones.
Anyone reading this who fancies making an offer for any of the figures on my blog, please do let me know, as they must go to a good home.
Thanks again for looking and any comments welcome.
