Janassires

Hi Gents,
A few more for the Malta collection this time some Turks.

New Janissaries arrived today beautifully brought to life by the brush of Dave Jarvis.

I spent a wee bit of time converting some figures for this collection.


These two are Old Glory figures with added plumes.

A few more conversions Perry /Essex /Old Glory and Foundry

Mostly head swaps

Flaf pole still to be painted and figures based.


I must admit the Old Glory figures really came up a treat.

Best

Last stand in St Annes Chapel

 Hi Gents,

Been a while since the last post still collecting and have some new arrivals that are due to be shown next week. In May my wife and I visited Malta which was great we stayed in Valetta which was like living history itself. First day we went down to St Elmo and visited St Anne's chapel this is where the last defending knights made their last stand along with two priests who stayed with the defenders.
These figures are a mix of manufacturers but mainly Eureka for these pics.
This is how I imagine the seen inside the chapel.


A grizzly fate awaited the Knights after the battle the bodies where decapitated and the bodies nailed to wooden crosses and floated towards St Angelo across the Bay to terrify the defenders.

Local myth has the ghosts of the knights can still be seen from time to time.

The figures are brought to life by the brush of Dave Jarvis.


Really pleased with this collection.

The Knights commander after seeing the mutilated bodies of his brethren float to wards St Angelo ordered that the ottoman prisoners in the dungeons be brought up and beheaded the heads were then fired back to the Turks this is total war.

A lot of Janissaries arriving next week as the push to complete the Ottomans begins.


We plan to visit Malta at some point in the future what a great place.
Best wishes
Willie

Malta Harbour

 Hi Gents,

I was asked recently if my Malta 1565 collection was still being added to the answer was yes so I thought I would take a few shots to remind me where this is going.

Some of the fleet arrive at Malta



I have a fleet of ships and small boats that will be used for this collection
Change of period for this but again I think it will work well for Malta.
Harbour tower


I need to tidy the ships up a little bit.
A couple of minor conversions on games workshop figures

Service continues.

A shot of a small boat
