English Civil War

First up are some of my Little Lead Soldier company figures. I painted these up as Royalists. I also made a version of Peter Gilder's Gentleman Pensioners, but I did err in the numbers and in the banner. I blame my watching Family Guy while painting. A Minifigs Charles the First is in attendance.

Next are a mix of figures from the Parliamentary side, Warrior Miniatures 20mm and some more Dollar  Store conversions.

These last three images are of some game pieces from Sid Meier's Civilization Board game. I picked them up in a bagful of toys from ebay. While they aren't especially accurate, they do look the part. I added pikemen from World War 2 Dollar Store soldiers.


  1. Just been exploring, there is some great stuff here! I've not seen HO soldiers in any dollar stores around here, at least not in 40 years, but if I had I doubt that it would have occurred to me to convert wwii Anzacs to pike and shot. (mind you I did once convert 15mm Nap Landwehr to 30Y war pike and shot so maybe.)

    I have a fondness for giant from child days.

    Anyway, great stuff!

  2. Thank you. I've been lurking at your website for quite a while now. Having done some small mould making and casting, I'm in awe of your work. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Welcome to a few new members! I'll keep adding stuff as I go along from one incompleted project to another...
    Things have decidedly taken a turn for the macabre as a series of cardboard dungeons are being made. I have a bag of Zombies! who had me thinking of a subterranean adventure in the 18th or early 19th century. Oddly enough, zombies in tricornes don't look so bad.
    Speaking of members, I managed to pad my membership by successfully joining my own blog.
    I have no idea how, and less idea of how to correct it.
    Oh well.
