Zombies at the Mall!

A group of us went down to the mall the other night to get a few things. Nothing unusual there you might think. Well, there were Zombies about, and that made things very interesting.
Our brief was to get into the mall, get whatever supplies we could find and get out again.  Simple!!!

Napoleonic French Carabiniers.

I have finally finished painting these guys. I had half of the unit for several years but only ordered the remaining figures in August.  I painted them in October and eventually got round to basing them over the Christmas break.
 The Carabiniers have always been one of my favourite Napoleonic units, the big red helmet crest , the brass/copper cuirass and mounted on dark horses must have made an impressive sight on Napoleonic battlefields all over Europe.

Front Rank figures and the flag is by GMB.

Happy New Year.

To kick off the new year here are some pic's of Roger's Rangers that I painted up a while ago. Still yet to see any action on the tabletop. These chaps are made by Front Rank and are a real joy to paint.

Hopefully 2012 will be a much better year for my home town of Christchurch. 2011 saw the city practically "shut down" for a day or two because of snow, twice within two weeks! Several thousand earthquakes during 2011 have not been kind to this city either.

 Thanks to all of you who take the time to look and comment on this blog, I really do appreciate it.

I wish you all a very Happy New Year and hope you all have a great 2012 of painting, making collecting and playing with model soldiers.

Just clicked midnight here in N.Z.
