Adventure Miniatures Australia is soon to bring out some great new additions to their already fantastic ACW range. Victor Perry's latest figures are some beautiful mounted officers (designed by EBob). They are Generals Sherman, William Dorsey Pender (pictured above), Barksdale, A.P. Hill, Maxcy Grieg and lastly the Wheats Tiger Zouaves mounted officer. So seven new mounted officers in total. The figures are going straight into a mould as soon as the arrive in a week or so and should be released in the next few weeks along with the 1st Virginia Cavalry.

Perry Miniatures - Sudanese

Over the last couple of years I have been working in PNG for four weeks at a time and never really had much time for Myself, however this trip I decided to bring over some figures and paints with me and scheduled 20 to 30mins a night for painting.  After three weeks I managed to complete 24  x Perry Miniatures Sudanese for my Sudan collection. To be honest they were a repaint of an old commission I had painted for myself but I was not happy with how they were painted, thus they already had a good base coat. I basically repainted the flesh, uniform and rifle....only have to add them to a base now,  which will be a job for me on my I return home next week. After basing these lads plus the rest of the Egyptian lads will be involved with some intense battles with the Mahdi. So until then please enjoy.
