American Civil War union army

So this is a project I started a few months ago but wasn't happy with the colour of there uniforms and i was starting a new job, so I put it on hold but now I'm settled Iv jumped back into it and this is where I am with it,
There are all perry miniatures and I have to admit I did have to blow some dust off them as I had dumped them in the garage in June/ July and not bothered with them until now as I wasn't happy with the blue and it was abit of a tuff slog painting so many models in one go (famous last words "won't be doing that again")
I'm working on all the troop/ soldiers first and I'm painting them in blocks one colour at a time.
 These just need the silver of there rifles and hair painted and a few smaller bits painted.
These need the same as above but also there rifles painted brown 
And we'll you get the idea what these need.
Still got these to work on but il so these after all the infantry are finished.
The reason all these models are painted so basically is because I intend to use the Army painter dip on them as there rank and file troops and I'm not going to expand on this set.

Adjusting the Blog

Sorry for the lack of work lately but I have been working a lot of extra hours with the build up to Christmas. 
Iv been working on a few projects over the last week, mainly ACW in an attempt to get them finished before Christmas and before the arrival of baby B :).

Iv made a few changes to the blog and over the next 2 days will be doing some tinkering with bits and bobs, mainly widths of fields ect :/ 

Iv added a list of a few blogs that I have found useful and there owners nice, iv also added a few web pages of some manufacturers or retailers mainly independent ones there are a few big ones up there but that's only because the rest of the big manufactures might take legal action if I advertise there sites or products?? 
We all know who or what I'm on about :)

Iv also added a survey to try and see what people might be interested in seeing in the future??

Clockwork Goblin miniatures

This is a project that I put on hold for almost a year because of work and other commitments but Iv decided to get the ball rolling on it

I had originally found these miniatures as I was on abit of a quest to find some 15mm WW2 German zombies and stumbled across this site


They make a small amount of alternative WW2
Miniatures fire there own rule set 


This is a free rule set that I haven't had a 
chance to look at in depth but it has a FOW feel to it

So the miniature and wow there cool.

There ment to be 15mm but in all honesty I'd 
say they were BUG BIG 15mm

So hear are some pics of what I got my hands on

These are the American troops that have
 a feel of gears of war meets dust tactics but 
the level of detail is superb

These are the German troops that again 
have that gears of war feel to them but again 
they look fantastic

This is a American medium mech 

And now onto the coolest miniatures

German nazi undead zombies!!!!!!!
The level of detail on these is amazing and I'm so happy with them.

Since I bought these they have released loads more miniatures and have big plans for more releases in 2014 with the release of British, Russian and lots more.

Il be using these with another rule set probably tomorrows war from ambush alley once I get my hand on a copy. 

I know I said they are BIG for 15mm but once you see the level of detail and the rest of the miniatures all is forgiven.

I'm excited about starting this project and hopefully il find some alien enemy's soon that will fit in :)

So if your tempted with any of these miniatures please check out there site :)
