A Few More Command Stands for Hail Caesar and Black Powder

The Korean division commanders and a Russian brigade commander, with entourage, on 50mm Litko plywood bases. Again, all the figures were painted some time ago - but were on individual bases - which I find fiddly to move around in larger games. Army Painter grass tufts and flowers added along with static grass - which compared to the grass tufts and flowers look a bit stale and dated.
All the Korean figures are Perrys; the Russian mounted and pointing figures are Warlord Games - the bicorne wearing officer on foot is a Foundry figure.
I will have to cave in and paint up a few figures to add to the Korean army general and Samurai command bases.

    Well done!

  9. Superb! There is something about mixing the periods in a single phot that makes this even better. Such a fascinating contrast in styles.

  10. Thank you all very much for your thoughtful and kind comments. I appreciate the indulgence of posting these re-based figures.

    @ Tasmin: I've seen your very impressive Korean army, so your comment is all the more appreciated.

    @ Monty: I have to agree with your observation about mixing periods - hmmm, I have a 15mm Empire General which I need to paint up - maybe mixing of scales would be an interesting post too.

    Warm Regards to everyone, Dean

  11. Very nice! I admire your fortitude in rebasing. I'd rather have root canal, myself. I've got a lot of A&A 3rd c. Romans that I based for WRG when Kevin and I did a project for that. I've been toying with rebasing them for Hail Caesar!, but the specter of all that rebasing work has held me at bay.

  14. Thanks for the nice words, Gentlemen!

    @ David - If you do re-base for Hail Caesar, I can provide an opposing army for you to play against.

    Best, Dean
