Ayton 2013 Pics (Part 1) - Pic Heavy!

Postby goat major » Mon May 06, 2013 5:26 pm

Ok here's all them - the good and the bad. Not so many wobbly hands this time.

I think every unit that looks like an authentic ACW unit is from Tim's collection so i haven't labelled them individually. If he had done a single vignette to this quality i would have been impressed - but two full armies just defies description. Simply beautiful - superlatives and photos don't even begin to do his wonderful collection justice.

The objective - the Union Ironworks and depot
Image

The 30' table before the mayhem started
Image

Paul's Duchy of Darrien troopers - unusually on foot and only using normal muskets.....
Image

The Savage Swans advance - i've only just noticed the camel on the flag - brilliant!
Image

Altefritzenberger Oompah Band - headlined the bill
Image

Image

Image

Image

Oh Shit! Paul's splendidly modelled airforce
Image

Image

Image

Image

Ken's Lancer's were fantastic but just too tempting for the artillery....
Image

"All guns aim at those pretty Lancers"
Image

Image

The Transylvanian Fusiliers prepare in case the lancers manage to charge the guns
Image

Tim's african auxiliaries. Can't imagine they'll do much...
Image

Valleyboy's British and Naval Brigade press forward
Image

Image

Buff's Russian Lancers prepare to spend what seemed like hours trying to skewer irregular skirmishers
Image

Norm's siege gun. is there no end to this Rebel trickery ?
Image

Image

Norm's very elegant commanders take a short break from planning underhand tactics to pose for the camera
Image

Image

Hang on were'nt there a few more lancers than that ?
Image

Paul and his Nuns, lady with riding crop and large dogs. I'm a bit worried for him....
Image

Image

Pauls wonderfully weird weird blokes
Image

Image

The Indians and Corsairs are ambushed in the woods. Oh the irony
Image

Gatling Guns - oh lordy !!!
Image
Can't paint ? Won't paint ? Kan-ban !

That's why I took distance shots, I knew your close-ups would be excellent! Brilliant pics Simon.

Great pictures Simon, really capture the feeling of the game.

Although looking back, maybe my imagination should be kept in a well guarded box and marked 'Do not open for any reason.
