More GdA items on the workbench

A lovely assortment of Wargames Foundry Austrian casualty figures take centre stage on the board.
Following on from a fairly productive few weeks I thought I would take advantage of the Perth heat t bang out a few more French ADC's as well as some more casualty dials from Warbases for some of the other armies in the collection.


A bit of a selection here awaiting some brown paint and synthetic grass.

Some very nice Front Rank casualty figures as well as some older style Old Glory Early French


I am also now getting close to having enough French ADC's though I would love to have a dozen if truth be told to handle and accommodate some larger battles.


As is my want, I do tend to have differing figures for different periods whenever possible.  Those who have been following this blog for a while will know of my affection for Elite Miniatures figures for the Peninsular and the period 1805-07, the so called "Glory Years".


Perry Miniatures lovely ADC's ready for the post 1812 games.

...and from a different angle.


I do also have a large collection of 1815 figures for both sides and like to use the similar style figures whenever possible.  As the vast majority of my collection for this period is in fact Perry Miniatures, I have a few lovely Perry figures to complement this particular force with a few Wargames Foundry figures sent in for good measure where it best suits.

  2. Thank you very much Peter. I have to confess to very much enjoying getting a lot of the extras on the table and finished. Feel like I'm actually progressing with the backlog!

  3. The dials and casualties are lovely and decorative, mine will have to wait until I can field more units for the napoleonic period, great Italian wars on the other hand I'm tempted to do them, delightful ADC'S Perrys are great and very nicely painted.
    Best Iain

  4. Great last couple of post on gearing up for GdA! I confess that I haven’t done much with Pickett’s Charge (the ACW version of GdA) because of my lack of casualty markers and ADCs. But you’re effort is really paying off well! These figures will really enhance your gameplay. 😀

    1. Thank you Stew. I believe that the markers and all the other wargaming counters etc. that you can make into small vignette style counters adds so much to the game and the ease of casualty administration etc. so I am sure your Picketts Charge games would benefit from them that's for sure.
