Battleaxe - 25mm WWI British Infantry


A joint effort from me and Postie, I painted them and Postie cleaned, undercoated and based them! I'm not sure of their make, anyone know??
These are an ongoing painting project for Battleaxe, for a nice chap called Matt. He's given us a few more to paint up and sounds like he'll be buying some French too!!
These are the third lot of photos I've taken of these Brits, the first lot I accidentally deleted from my camera and I couldn't use the rest because they were rubbish, I'm afraid these are the best pics from a bad bunch.
The figures were a joy to paint, lots of detail and lots of raised edges for highlighting. Although I kept the highlights pretty subtle as they should be rather drab looking uniforms.
To all me fellow Analouge Painting Challenge comrades, you'll be happy to know, I've been slaving away gluing figures to horses and sticks ready for the 15th, its getting on my nerves now though, I've got approx 200 15mm figures in front of me and I can't paint them.............yet!
And lastly a bit of good news, my Secret Santa pressie arrived in the post the other day? Wonder what's in the box!!!!

    3. Clint, I'd like to see you beat Rousell this year. You're such a nice man, they'd never suspect you of sandbagging. You could get away with it and smash the Badger!

    5. Anne. I am not going to do any tricks or tactics. I am just going to paint and hope with fingers crossed.

  5. I think the figures are "Renegade Miniatures" but hard to be totally sure with seeing them in person. Nice job though.

    Good luck with the challenge.

  6. Actually they are from the Musketeer Miniatures range. Really lovely sculpts and the two of you have done a great job with them. Well done!

    ...and apparently you still can't spell 'analogue' to save your life... :)

    1. That's 2 for Musketeer and 1 for Renegade. Why couldn't the Challenge be called something that's easy to spell?????

  21. I'll take the bottom from ya then! Excellent figures, Ray! I really like these, I'll have to ask SWMBO if I can plot another project. I already have a trench board afterall... ;)

  22. Best I can tell they are mostly musketeer. Perhaps a couple of Great War (the guy marching) and the officer with the stick is either Great war or renegade. If he's renegade he would be the biggest of the lot
    Musketeer are smaller and elegant. Great war in the middle. Renegade hefty Very nice painting
