The Guns


Some artillery support for my British Imperial/colonial forces

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)


Royal Artillery 7 pounder from Black Tree Design.


Martian Colonial Field Artillery. The crew are from RAFM. The carriage is of unknown origin – I got it in a trade (without the actual gun barrels). The gun barrel is a spare from a Renegade Miniatures British Napoleonic artillery pack (the packs are supplied with THREE different barrels!?)

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Hmmmm… Zulus? British? Martians…? Hard to say – the workbench is mighty cluttered with all three at the moment (along with a few more gladiators!)

2nd Battalion Queen’s Own Martian Rifles (the Parhoon Rifles)


Another late night of utter distraction… I have completed the unit of Parhoon Rifles I’ve been working on (distracted by).

(I went with the red skin…)

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)


The Martians are all from RAFM, their British officer is from Black Tree Design.

Hobgoblins.

More Martians


A few more Martians quickly churned out for our new Savage Space: 1889 Campaign. Of course, then I realized I don’t really need them for last night – I needed Canal Martians and Hill Maritans!? Doh…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)


These High Martians are from RAFM.


“What ho? You dastardly fuzzie-Martian scallywags!” BLAM! BLAM! “Take that! I say!” I also finished up a lone British officer from Black Tree Design for a player character.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

The rest of the High Martians, Zulus, Elves and Rangers, British and/or ANZAC Cavalry… and other assorted goodies….

Royal Artillery Screw Gun and Martians!?

Um… Not Zulus…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)


This is a Royal Artillery 7-pound Jointed Rifled Muzzle Loading Gun (The Screw Gun). The model is from Connoisseur Miniatures – which are currently available from Bicorne Miniatures.


These are two Space:1889 High Martians from RAFM. They’re actually meant to be flying and landed versions of the same Martian. I painted these up quickly, as one of the player characters in our new Space:1889 campaign (on Savage Saturday Night) is a High Maritian. I’ll be painting up the rest shortly as they feature as the baddies in a number of adventures.

RAFM still produces a lot of cool Space:1889 Miniatures.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Well… Probably some Martians (Both High Martians and Canal Martians)… and some of Mikey K’s fantasy characters… and some Ruga Ruga… The latter I had started a while back and are close to being finished so I thought I’d… well… FINISH them – as they’d be useful for all sorts of colonial adventures right up to the Great War. The Martians I need for the aforementioned new SW campaign we’re startin. Mikey K’s stuff… well I told him I’d get it done over then next week or so… so I probably should…

THEN maybe I’ll get back to those Zulus…

African Porters

As promised more Africans… I might have mentioned tribesmen… these are not-so-much tribesmen, but African none the less!

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)


African porters (and a European Explorer) - all from The Foundry


Martian from RAFM and tomb robber from Artizan Designs.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

More Africans. Probably askaris, or such, with firearms.

First load of Zulus arrived today, along with their British opponents and some Masai... expect them soon as well. If ever the other Napoleonics I ordered from Renegade would arrive I might participate in Curt's Spring Thaw Painting Challenge. As ever, we shall see...

(oooh, this is apparently post number 666)
