A Saturday afternoon parade! (Video)

 Bitterly cold outside, so what to do? A parade of course!

Just a few shots for a short video to play with figures and the camera and show some of the periods and themes that are currently interesting me. 

It doesn’t really represent the painting table, which is mainly 12mm WWII armour and infantry, plus a couple of 28mm Wars of the Roses heavy cavalry pieces.

    3. I’m guessing that your painting desk surrendered to the insanity of it all, many moons ago :-)

    1. Thanks Darren, though I'm still a bit new to this, so I think I uploaded with a lower resolution than I should have. It seemed to upload in seconds ... which can't be right!

  5. Very nicely done Norm and very clear too. You certainly do have a lot of lovely toys that cover quite a wide period:)

    1. Thanks Steve, in truth, too many fingers in too many pies, throw in the boardgames and I have quite long periods of procrastination.

  6. Outstanding parade Norm! Lovely figures and settings. That sci fi whatever surrounded by what looked like goats made me especially smile!

    1. Thanks Mike, they are my highland cattle and I liked the juxtaposition of future tech with an ancient organic breed.

    1. thanks JB, the 60 - 90 seconds video seems to be about right for these sort of things.

  8. A great way to present a parade Norm - all the figures and eras shown were top notch - what scale is your WW2 collection?

    1. Thanks Keith, Oh Dear, my WWII scales, I have and like 10mm, 12mm, 15mm and 1/72! but something needs to give.

      The shots here are all 1/72, which I do like because of the chance to model and the matching terrain gives a nice smaller footprint for 28mm games. I actually sold off a bunch of 1/72 last year on e-bay, but then a local shop had a sale and well ..... you know how it is :-)

  9. Very impressive montage! Some really stunning photos that would rival what I see in magazines and in rule books.
    Now when I look at my own miniatures I’ll get all depressed. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. thanks Stew, you are too kind, your table is always a pleasure to see and I am a 'reluctant' painter.

  10. A nice selection of figures, I particularly liked your new War of the Roses figures.

    1. Thanks Peter, the WotR are certainly a nice figure style and period to work on. I have gone for a block basing style like yo use so that I only have to paint in batches of 7 - 9 figures, which has become a sweet spot in making progress.

  11. Great video and a wonderful selection of well painted models, very impressive

  12. Thanks Graham, I enjoyed an afternoon of dabbling - I have the new Kursk boardgame from 3Ci on the way to me, I think that could interest you :-)

  13. Lovely Norm and a nice distraction for us all.....I liked those Austrians !

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks Matt,the Austrians are 28mm Perry plastic and of course is about to take me down another rabbit hole! I have a fairly decent carton of French and Austrian plastic boxes and metal blisters to see a small project through, but other things are in the painting queue!

  15. Very cool, Norm. I wish i had more tech savvy- I would do something like this!

    1. Thanks Steve, today, I had a ‘map parade’, nothing recorded, I just put a chunk of game maps on the table and went through them, promising myself they would all get played soon :-)

  16. Great little video Norm featuring lovely model soldiers from different Era's. Must admit the Austrians surprised me, I didn't see those coming!

  17. Thanks Lee, rather like WWII, I have Austrian raw lead / plastic piles in 28mm, 15mm and 10mm, it just so happens that these ones got some love :-) I must admit though, I got some real pleasure yesterday getting this scale out and in front of the camera, the other scales don’t give me that ‘handling’ buzz .... they must be telling me something!

  18. Lovely parade, so it's 28mm or bust after all!
    Best Iain
