I'm afraid that spider post is giving me the creeps so I found some shots I took of the collection in the cabinet when I did the wargamer's equivalent of 're-arranging the sock drawer'. Frankly it needed it badly.
This required removing hundreds of figures and cleaning all the dust off the cabinet shelves etc, then re-packing those shelves with a slightly different display. The whole exercise took bleedin' hours and I was so glad to finish I got the camera out and took some pictures. As you do of course.
My massed Russians, mainly Front Rank & Foundry with a regt each of Elite Hussars and Dragoons. I really like the FR artillery and because they didn't produce one, I scratch built a limber with Old Glory and an Elite artilleryman as the horse holder. Apologies for the slightly blurred photography, must have imagined 'Boris' scuttling across the ceiling above me.
These are my Elite figure hussars, when I had a full regiment. They are supported by some Dixon(?) dragoons behind and some Russian jaeger in front trying not to be ridden over. Alas most rode off into glory and somebody else s' collection [sigh] Just have to collect them again - you can't 'ave a decent Austrian army wiffout 'ussars!
So, maybe a bit pedestrian and indulgent even for this blog BUT better than pictures of 'airy great spiders, I'm sure you'll agree!
