I haven't been in the habit of posting photos of my greens (or greys in this case). It's more interesting than photos of sausage being made, and hopefully less disgusting!

First, I have a set of dismounted US command for 1812. If you're like me, you use dismounted command figures on the mounted generals' bases to denote rank; for instance, one dismounted figure with a mounted general is a brigade commander, two is a divisional, and two mounted figures on a base is a corps commander.
You may recognize some Osprey illustrations among these:

I have the torsos here for early-war Americans. The roundabouts in the early war would be linen for the summer and not the grey wool of the late war. The full-laced coatee will be represented as well:

Here is one of the last of the mounted cowboys:

And finally, one of three horses for US 1812 cavalry. He's got a light cavalry saddle, one of several styles extant, and a simple saddle blanket used on campaign underneath the saddle instead of the shabraque over the saddle.  The pistols and wool cover will be sculpted as well. I have two others I'm rigging out with all the requisite gear:

I've said for a long time that I'm revamping the 40's. Here's proof!

These are but a few bits and pieces; I'm sculpting lots of guns, heads, hats, and a poseable horse dollie that cries, piddles, and closes his eyes when you lay him down. 

The new 28's should be mastered and ready to go later this month. The 40mm project rolls on, but I fear I won't have any new releases lined up in that range for a couple of months yet.

Now that you've seen how sausage is made, I hope you still want to order some!

All the best,
