Selling and Painting

To raise funds for my new Model Railway project and any other future projects I’ve been spending some time pontificating on which wargaming figures and model railway stuff I could sell. Some hard decisions have been made along with making commitments to finish painting the figures that I want to keep.

The decision made with this Duchy of Warsaw Corp was to sell one division’s worth of painted infantry figures totaling 144 figures miniatures. This may seem a strange decision but painted figures fetch the best price. In doing so I was left with a number of figures to paint to complete the Duchy of Warsaw project. I’ve now just about completed the Infantry Division including the artillery and two of the four cavalry regiments. Flags need to be added to the infantry stands and I may have a few infantry pompoms to repaint but feel they are coming on nicely.

Above is the Corps so far, further additions that need painting to complete are a regiment each of Chassuers and Krakus cavalry along with a command stand with Marshal Poniatowski and ADC’s.

It’s just a shame that I’ve moved away from my regular gaming opponent (may post how this  in another blog) so they may not see action for some time unless I go solo.


I have been wargaming for 10 years in which time I have finally settled on two eras, Napoleonic and WWII, both in 15mm (1:100). Most of my ramblings will be about gaming in these two eras. An attempt will be made to record my wargaming interests, building of armies, ideas, interests and hopefully some games played.
