WW1 Turks with a twist.










Originally Anglian Miniatures Moroccan Regulars but modified to represent Dervish Volunteer Infantry in Ottoman service for WW1. A knob of green stuff raised the head-dress a little and nothing else was changed. The colour scheme is entirely conjectural as I only had a monochrome photo in the Osprey book to go on.... and the equipment may not be entirely correct... but they look alright, don't they? Click on an image for a better view!

AWI Lee's Legion Dragoon










A little bit of green stuff added to this Perry XVI Light Dragoon figure, the knife to trim off a few bits of uniform embelishment, my favourite illustration from Don Troiani and presto!

Rifleman 1/12th London Regiment (The Rangers), 1918.















Have taken the decision that in 2010, leaving aside the WW1 commissions I have already agreed to take up, any painting that I do for my my own collection will cover some different time periods. So... I thought I'd paint up the last few GWMs that I have sitting on the little shelf above my painting table. Here's the first of the last few WW1 figures destined for my display cabinet. 1/12th London Regiment was my wife's Great Uncle's Regiment.

Had these on the go since September and finally, thanks to the snow here in the UK, managed to get them based today.
