40k Salamander centennials and terrain piece

 My son Justin's been at me to get some more of his 40 army painted so here we are so much to do when will i find the time but somehow while doing my own stuff i managed to come up with the idea of this terrain piece below made out of a cardboard hard drive protective holder turn upside down and a few unwanted bits Justin had a bit of balsa around the edges and a lick of paint boom done

28mm world war two building scratch built

Woke up Saturday morning and though what the heck time to build something, i'd seen this guy on utube and thought i'd like to give that a crack so started this at 2.30 in the afternoon and before i knew it it was 11.45 in the evening one building completed gave it an airbrush the next day and i must admit i'm pleasantly surprised, still needs some rubble and messing up a bit but that can wait for now

 added a bit of texture with some sand and pva glues but not to the balsa areas which i wanted to be smooth concrete
 the idea with the balsa is to get some layering happening

 I painted the second story floor last night  sorry no pics of that

28mm Perry American War Independence

I've been working away at a few AWI figures for a commission that i'm  quite enjoying. There are a mixture of Plastics and metals in this batch they are all Perry but in the next batch  there are foundry also, this is my first foray into this period so hope i do it justice.
This first Regiment is the Virginia Covenant Guard hope i got that right 

 Then i went to work on a slightly rag tag bunch of continental infantry 

 I'v also started on four artillery pieces and a couple og Generals , i've also based and undercoated another 16 cav and 48 plus infantry so lots yet to do
