Artillery Train

 These are from the RSM line owned by Dayton Painting Consortium (DPC). Very nice figures and priced well. The set comes with 4 horses but I used only two as I think these are supposed to be lead horses with a rider. Since "historical accuracy" is not required, these fit the bill. The base is made from bass wood from Hobby Lobby and Liquitex resin gel. This was covered with black gesso and then drybrushed with various colors. The static comes from a GF9 line. I used vinyl sheet magnet underneath to secure the miniatures in the storage box.

The only "conversion" I made was to add a rifle to the figure on the left. DPC is pretty good about giving you extra bits and pieces youcan integrate as required. I guess I’ll now have to add a Toorkish set!

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
