Spanish General 28mm Brigade Games Salute Single figure-Paul Hicks-

Hello again to all that have looked at my blog and a thanks also to those who have taken time to leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
Here are some pictures of my entry into the Salute 2012 Single Wargames figure category, this one again got onto the finallists table but did not get a prize.  It came up against some larger 54mm models, they really should have a seperate category for larger scale models, a 15mm figure has not got much chance against a 54mm, in my opinion.  I dont know anyone that games in 54mm.
Anyhow thats my moan over for now, this is a 28mm Brigade Games Spanish General sculpted by Paul Hicks from the Peninsular War.  I just had to paint this as its a wonderful sculpt, as you can see.
The horse is from Warlord Games and was supposed to have The Earl of Essex seated on it, but not in my world.  Cannonballs are ball bearings, a resin barrel, a strip of plastic tape, for reigns and a printed map of Spain finish the other parts.
Photos taken by my phone, no new camera yet.
Any questions or comments are most welcome, thanks for looking Michael.


  1. Very nicely done. Nice blend of colours and I like your use of the horse,

    Is this going to be part of your army?



  2. Thank you for comment. I don't game with my models, they are placed into display cabinets, all of which are now getting cramped so time to move some on.

  3. Wow - fantastic painting and basing. Museum quality work. Best, Dean

  4. Fantastic work and inspiring
