Ayton 2013 Pics (Part 2) - Pic Heavy!

Postby goat major » Mon May 06, 2013 5:46 pm

It's difficult to pick a favourite out of Tim's collection - but this unit is up there
Image

Image

Paul's lancers. With dynamite. Of course.
Image

Essex Boy's splendid British Guards. Soon to go down in history as "The Thin Red Smudge"
Image

Zouave on Zouave action
Image

Image

Peeler's imposing guardsmen striking fear into those rebels
Image

Image

Richie's regiment Manchester Utd themed regiment. thats asking for trouble
Image

Image

Buff's Russians surge forward
Image

Ken's serried ranks of sombrero loveliness
Image

Image

Dave's Medetian Bersaglierie looked lovely and performed magnificently

Image

Image

The Rebs capture Little Square Top
Image

Dave's Medetian forces rely on their superb paintjobs to protect them from aerial bombardment
Image

Union and Austrian artillery revel in their game of Mexican Ten Pin Bowling
Image

Image

Image

Richies Mexican Irregulars. I hadn't spotted the babes !
Image

Image

Peeler's impressive heavy cavalry brigade
Image

Surely its a war crime of LT like proportions to gatling gun an Oompah Band ?
Image

But still they play on...
Image

Image

Image

One of Count B's (i think) officers looks on in despair as the poison gas heads his way...
Image

More gas....
Image

Image

Image
Can't paint ? Won't paint ? Kan-ban !

Great pictures and it looks like a great time was had, all I can say is that I am glad it wasn't a Fantasy or Sc-Fi game....

Well done, Simon - beautifully shot and captioned. Award yourself a few more beers, and some extra light bulbs and newspaper to the goat for his dinner.

<rant> If I'd known there was a Man Utd themed unit on the table I'd have definitely broken ranks and gone for it. Whichever side it was on. A sharpshooter shot from 15 feet would have been worth it too.

Great pics and captions.
:YMAPPLAUSE:

Loved the dudes with the lemon squeezers on their heads. All the figures look great, but Buff's caught my eye purely for the subject matter. I'm guessing, but were they Crimean Russians?

And have a whip round next year to buy Peeler a new t-shirt :))

Those units are really stunning - so regretting missing this.

May I note that Oompah bands should be gassed on sight. Rather like nuns.

Yup, GWM I think, I can't take credit for the good ones though, they were painted by Darren Smith.

Yeah, you were a big miss would have been great to a full division of Mexicans. Mind you to be fair the Reb brigade I commanded did a lot better than my Mexican one.
