Caledonian Volunteer- Rifle

Is that a seed soldier?
Despite his odd looking pose- this figure isn't too bad.

I painted him with the Caledonian Volunteer whilst Braveheart was blaring in the background.  That was some motivation.

Caledonian Volunteer- Chain Rifle and Painting Tartan

They may take our lives but they'll never take our FREEDOM!
For 6 points- you get an order, a chain rifle and not much else.

Ariadna: Chasseur

Flamers ready!
I finished this Chasseur over the past two weeks.

He was an enjoyable model to paint and not so covered in detail to make it a chore to finish.  In keeping with his French origins I painted his pants and cap in Camouflage Europe Centrale- the camouflage pattern of the modern French army uniforms.

He's turned out very well for an old sculpt even if I do say so myself.

Ariadna: Spec-Ops

Sneaky peaky.
I have no idea why I did this miniature other than the fact he has been on my to do list for 100 days.  Yes- that's right- 100 days.  So when a competition turned up for painting a Spec-Ops model- I caved in and got it done.

To be honest, having the satisfaction of crossing him off my to do list is a fantastic feeling.

He's good for the table top and I can't wait to trot him out as a proxy for ... anything!   So versatile!

Ariadna: Tank Hunter Autocannon

AP + EXP ammo = best ammo.
After a brief hiatus spent away with real life- I return invigorated for more battles with tiny lead soldiers.

I have received many assurances that the Tank Hunter Autocannon is the go to TAG killer for Ariadna.  In fact, it seems to be the go to anything killer of anything with more than 1 wound.

Which ever it turns out to be- I can't wait to bring this figure onto the gaming table!
