Hurrah, Boys, Hurrah

At last something new to post! I have been very busy at work lately plus I have been painting a lot of plastic Napoleonic figures for a friend so my own personal figure output has dropped massively. I could have finished some more Airfix Waterloo figures but decided a short break from all those shakos and plumes was in order. What could be more suitable than some boys in blue?

Newline Designs 20mm ACW
 I must admit to having taken advantage of the recent Newline Designs sale and bagged myself a few hundred figures from their various 20mm ranges. All things considered the excellent quality of the sculpting vs the very reasonable pricing (even without the sales discount!) makes Newline a very attractive proposition. Plus they are in "Gods Own Scale".

Flags are GMB from their 15mm range.
I have some Rebs up next with some Zulu's after that; until then I hope you like my latest output which I think is best appreciated while humming "The Battle Cry of Freedom".

  1. Great work Matt, those Newline figures are rather nice, I have an ACW game tomorrow in 28mm though.

  2. Those are super nice! Looking forward to the Rebs! How do they match up against Airfix 1/72nds, by the way?

    1. Glad you like them. Comparison wise while they are a little smaller they fit well with Airfix when painted and based:

  3. Newline are lovely figures so I see the temptation but I hope you will return to project Waterloo soon!

  4. Superb paint job - I'm a fellow Newline fan - I even tried to persuade him to start an ECW range... LOL! :o)

    1. I would buy in to the ECW! It was your ACW figures that made me return to Newline!

  5. They look wonderful. I am just (re) embarking an an ACW project but will be using Perry plastics as even 20mm are too small for me to paint now.
