A Scary Plan............maybe Succeeding

Well the Austrians and Prussians are gone. I have been able to use the proceeds to duplicate my French Army unit for unit in painted 18mm AB miniatures as well as get at least a British Division. I am really pleased. All I have to do is wait 3 months!
With this sale I have decided to put up my  Front Rank Austrian and Calpe Prussian Lead Piles.
A Real Calpe Pile!

These are both going at more then 50% off with free shipping.

Up next painted is the 1st Hanoverian Brigade at Waterloo on Ebay.

Well that leaves the French, many of which can be seen here, almost 1000 figures, any offers?

  2. I can understand the feeling. If I had to redo I would paint 28mm Naps as display pieces and go 6mm (painted by some paid poor bastard) for gaming!

    But do keep some. I found a new house. It comes with a basement...

  3. On the one hand, IO am sad to see these troops, which you have put so much time and love into, depart. At the same time, given that you are firm in your resolve, the sooner it's over the less the pain and the sooner their smaller replacements will arrive, so I am happy for you there!

    The French are very tempting

  6. Hi John,
    Having been following along here for quite a few years and watching your amazing collection grow I'll be sad to see it go, but can fully understand your decision.Your figures have a very individual style that I admire very much.

    Great AFV's below, I particularly like the Tiger 1.

    All the best John, and good luck with your future direction.
