Knights of Dol Amroth

The Knights of Dol Amroth or The Swan Knights were a group of soldiers who served Prince Imrahil during the Third Age of Middle Earth. On March 9, 3019, Prince Imrahil led a company of Swan Knights to Minas Tirith to help defend the City. Prince Imrahil led the sortie that rode to the aid of Faramir and the rear-guard who were retreating from Osgiliath when the forces of Sauron overran the Pelennor Fields on March 13. Notable actions of the Knights during this battle included rescuing Faramir from the Southrons, and riding to the aid of the Rohirrim, fighting long and hard until the arrival of Aragorn
These are GW plastics, great figures although the detail is lacking depth

Seven Years War Austrians

Here are a few more Austrians of the Seven years war. These Crusader miniatures were a real joy to paint and will look fantastic once they are based.
I have a bit of catching up to do on the blog today so expect a few new posts over the next week

Wargames Table WIP4

 Well my little helper and I have finally finished the base sections! 
Here she is getting stuck in
I've spent countless hours trying to decide which is the best size table to optimise my space and make full use of the room. It has gone from the original 10'x5' to 12'x6 now it has gone down and will stay at a permanent 8'x6' as seen in the above WIP shot. 
I have enough tiles to do cover 12'x6' but decided that for my purposes the smaller table would work best, if i get the chance to run a larger game i will pop up an extension.
 Here is the 8'x6' board with supports, i just need to add some reinforcements to add strength just in case it gives in under the weight of lead :o)

Sticking with this table I now have room for another 6'x4' table in the room as you can see in the above pic. This will be a desert board for my forth coming Crusades collection and my old west games.

i will take some better pics at the weekend after I've tidied and rearranged the games room.
