I have been involved with miniature soldiers since I was four years old. For Christmas I received a Fort Apache play set. I was hooked from that moment on. I love all aspects of military history, but I am especially fond of the 18th and 19th centuries. I have painted up large armies for the Seven Years War, Jacobite Rebellion, American Revolution, and the American Civil War. I also have a nice collection of soldiers for the Battle for Empires.
I have picked up some figures in a larger scale. The detail is amazing and they are really fun to paint. They Victrix Napoleonics in plastic. They have to be assembled, but this allows for a tremendous variety of poses and conversions. I am getting pretty good at putting them together, and at about sixty cents per figure, they are very reasonable. Here are a couple of shots of the first 150 that I have completed.
