Ralph, Military Band 

The 2 French Napoleonic mounted bands are in fact 25mm scale and I got them from Cavalier Books (formerly Mini figs) in the UK. I do also have an Australian Light Horse mounted band from WW1.

In fact the Australian Light horse had 8 mounted bands in that era. Only one kettle drummer exists now. I do have the band – Line Regiment band -  from Tradition of 30mm of which I have attached a picture.

  The Light Horse band was painted in semi-gloss some time ago.

  Attached picture of the Coldstream Guards band – 1815 and Saxon Army musicians from the Seven Year war. The Saxon figures are from an Australian model company called Eureka miniatures.


They make some very nice figures in 28mm, I have added – in 30mm – a Royal Marines Band and the Scots Guards in my collection. Plus, Russian musicians, also from Eureka miniatures.

French Foot Grenadiers band – Historex figures in 54mm, Coldstream Guards band – 1815 in 30mm.

Frederick the Great playing Flute with CPE Bach playing the Clavichord with a string quartet and the French philosopher Voltaire in attendance. Saxon Army musicians from the Seven Year war

Thank you for sharing with us, great scenery/ diorama

Diorama - Canvas Town Melbourne

Canvas Town, Melbourne, the state of Victoria, Australia, 1853, and today there is news of a new gold strike out beyond Ballarat, a hundred miles away, so the whole place is a-swarm with activity as people prepare to head off to the diggings. Victoria’s world has turned upside down. The gold fields at Ballarat and Bendigo have become the new El Dorado and more than 200,000 immigrants arrive from Britain and Europe. Another 25,000 come from China. Everyone seeks the elusive Lady luck. But even when the hopefuls get off their ships, it will be a long time before they get to the goldfields and find -just possibly- their fortunes. For the moment, they need a meal and somewhere to sleep. Melbourne is full, so the satellite suburb of Canvas Town is an unsavoury option.


Diorama - Canvas Town Melbourne

The gold-rushes were an international magnet. As well as the hopeful diggers from all over the world, there were all manner of camp-followers. These were the people who tended to get richer than the miners – merchants, mercenaries, good-time girls, doctors, quacks, impoverished aristocrats, political refugees, hopeful office clerks, crooked politicians, clergy, and out-and-out thieves; plenty of opportunities there! The family in the foreground have gone broke before they have even set out for the goldfields, far away, and are selling off their worldly possessions in the hope of buying tickets aboard a ship back to England.



Diorama - Canvas Town Melbourne

An open-air butcher at Canvas Town, working for a local squatter, the Australian equivalent of a gentleman-farmer. Those making the real money out of the gold rush are those who can sell a digger a square meal and a possibly a warm bed. This butcher is an ex-convict, once assigned as free labour to a squatter out Ballarat way, but now an employee at the same sheep station which is selling off its old, scabby and fly-blown sheep to supply mutton to hungry diggers at inflated prices. Open air butcheries like this had been called 'shambles' since medieval times. Hygiene was nonexistent; the meat swarmed with flies, so it is not surprising that this customer gives the mutton a bit of a squeeze to see whether it is too far gone.

Chess set Painted by Nat

The chess set was begun in 1996 while I was a midshipman at the Naval Academy.  At the time we were reading the Patrick Obrien novels and the Sharp series was running on air.  The vision was to play with my father via postcard and keep in touch while at sea.  It was never completed, mainly due to a lack of  figures to be queens and complete the set.  Flight school, marriage, children, and multiple trips to the Middle East after 9-11 meant the set sat in a box incomplete for the better part of 20 years. The excellent queens you made last year, and a more balanced work schedule, allowed for the complete vision to be realized. Now playing with dad and my boys on Christmas Day

Thanks for sharing Nat loking good, Magnus for ToL



Hi Magnus.

I had an opportunity to spend a day setting up some different scenes as I have started making some roads and wanted to see whether I was getting them ok. Anyhow one thing led to another and hey Presto a load of photos.

The gun team was painted by Keith Nairn-Munro with some other Napoleonics. Fantastic painting and fits in very well with my existing collection. Some of the Tradition of London have been painted by me. The band are from frontline. Napoleon is a Mulberry, one of five Napoleons I have got, got out of hand. The La Sainte Haye is fantastic, all the buildings built by mike, it splits in two and is used in the town scene. Trees and roads are built by me. I really need to get a bigger table. Hope you like the photos, I really enjoyed setting this one up!

That's it for photo sessions for a while.

By the way all of the buildings are from Waterloo, la Sainte haye, the chapel is from callous where Napoleon spent the night and then there is last belle alliance inn.

Thank you for sharing with us Mark, the Figures do look great with all scenery,
It's a real treat for us to see these photos, Magnus for ToL

Wellington at quartre bras by; Mark

Size of figures; 54mm with Scenary

The figures are a mix of Tradition of London, Mulberry and Wellington is a frontline figure. The scene is a temporary set up on the dining room table. I have based all of the figures onto textured and flocked bases, adds stability and I guess I like it that way. 

The buildings are wonderful and were made by a man called Bill? Lived in Lincolnshire before retiring to Spain.
