My First Photo --

Well, here I go . . . I'm going to try and upload my first photo
(to see if I can manage to do it).

I've selected a photo from a playtest of some rules I wrote for a Great Northern War battle (Fraustadt, 1706). I'm the guy in red with the white beard in the background. In the foreground you will hopefully see the backs of some of my Swedes. Figures are 25mm BloodAxe Miniatures.

Well, it looks like the "Post Editor" worked!

Now, I'll admit that I had a number of problems at first. I had javascripts blocked and so was not seeing any of the tools that allowed me to do a number of things (like upload a photo).

Hi Jeff,

I like those Swedes - where did you get them? I have to say that on occasion my mind wanders in the direction of Saxony when I think of the GNW - perhaps i just like a loser!

I'm looking forward to your RSM Hanoverians - I have a bag of Infantry and some grenadiers who are awaiting a place in the painting queue.

Regards, and keep up the good work,

A fellow named Lance Runolfsson (not sure of that spelling) from Oregon cast them.

I not only have Swedes, but Danes, Saxons, Poles and Russians -- all painted.

Unfortunately, the last I heard, Lance's "Blood Axe Miniatures" were no longer in production. However, he and Ian Croxall of used to live near each other -- and he might know more.

Thank you for the kind comments -- your blog has been an inspiration for me.

Sadly, we are in the process of moving and all of my paints are in storage -- so it may be some time before I can actually put any photos of painted figures up . . . *sigh*.

Look good Jeff.

I've always had an interest in the GNW and each time I see pics like yours I get to wanting to go and get some more figures.

When you get settled, It'd be great to see more of the GNW figures you have. I have thought about that as a project and I have stayed away to date, although, I must confess the rumor that Sash and Saber will be offering GNW 40mm figures will probable be my undoing!

Great site, I have linked to you. And I agree greg has been and continues to be an inspiration.

Cool Jeff,

I'm glad that you have found this forum.

I may partake of it myself sometime soon.

I do think I recognize the background...

Okay, Guys. Due to the spate of requests, I'll post some more GNW photos.
