Most young boys (and some adventurous girls) play with Toy Soldiers; some never stop! I'm proud to say that I am one that never has stopped. Toy Soldiers, painting the figures, history and miniature wargaming is what this site is all about.
Here is the first company of 12 Legionnaires that I painted in white fatigues. I have various methods of painting white, my favorite involving layering light brown, buff and then white. A grey base works well also with with highlights. However . . . I cheated this time and just painted 2 coats of white over a black primer.
The figures are from Artizan Designs which is one of my favorite figure manufacturers. The flag is from the wonderful site Warflag. The staff for the flag is a cut down metal pike from Warlord Games.
The company is organized as 12 figures and can be utilized for a variety of Colonial rule sets; my two favorite these days are In Her Majesty's Name and The Men Who Would be Kings.
I'm a retired Colonel of Infantry (Regulars by God!) who likes to play with toy soldiers. I've been married to the love of my life since 1986, I have 5 honorable sons (my geeks in training), 3 daughters-in-law, 2 dogs, and a gazillion miniatures.
Hobbies include . . . wait for it . . . Toy Soldiers, Reading,
