Completed Projects

 

As long as I can remember, I’ve been a collector of 54mm (1/32nd-scale) miniatures. I remember painting them in the backyard as a kid on summer days in Canada, and lining them up in the garden to be lost among the bushes and flowers. If you’re a kid at heart whose passion is still little metal men, you’re among friends.

Having “grown up,” my skill and experience at creating, converting and painting miniatures has grown as well. And now that passion is a business run by an enthusiast for other nostalgic enthusiasts.

I’m cracked, but I love this hobby.

The following are my latest creations this month, all finished. Check out the Workbench page for previews of what’s underway and that will appear here next month. Updates are made here on or near the first of each month, so check back often.

Painting buddy Dean R comes through again with these Hessian jagers for customer Dave G. Some more fine work by Dean. I really like the high- and lowlights he achieves in the folds of clothes.
Likewise this set of Continental artillery painted by Dean, also for Dave. Gun painted by ATKM. This is our "second edition" artillery crew.
Related but different are these artillery conversions by longtime contributor Glynn G. He's combined BMC bodies with ATKM metal heads for some 18th century bombadeering.
Now here's something to really take in. Back in December, Steve M hosted an ATKM game re-fighting the Battle of Trenton. What a table and figure collection! These pictures are worthy of examining closely to see all of Steve's amazing work.
Steve writes, "We played our second annual Battle of Trenton today. We used All the King's Men rules with 54mm miniatures from All the King's Men, Accurate Miniatures and Armies in Plastic. The game played quite historically until the Yankees were repulsed out of Trenton by a strong Grenadier battalion and some hotly contested ground in the center of town. We had 5 players. The rules are easy to learn, fun to play and hard to master They're a damned good bargain too...free is good! Very few miniatures gamers play in 54mm. All the King's Men make it easy to collect a sizable collection without killing one's figure budget! Great Day, Great Friends, Great Game! Merry Christmas to all!
How can I argue with any of that?
Last is this cabin I painted recently for customer John P, ready for the frontier.
The following are other recently completed sets of our figures, now added to the ATKM collection.
Here's our second edition AWI artillery painted as Continentals. Note the new poses to those familiar with our original set. The uniform of the Royal Artillery is almost identical to this. In fact, I left off some details like coat and hat lace to make these readily identifiable as Americans in my collection.
Here are the first painted sets of our "second edition" American Revolution figures. These bodies at attention were once our British grenadiers, now bereft of elite troops' trappings, made headless, and here combined with heads in trciornes to make British regulars. They're on our new "Recruit Your Own Regiment" menu, so you could combine whatever bodies and heads you like. You can see them all on our AWI page at this link.
Here's our "second edition" Hessian infantry. You can create the three classic "flavors," fusiliers, grenadiers, and musketeers. The figures now come with one consistent body and separate hats depending on the type of regiment you want to create.
Here's a Continental regiment created using our Recruit Your Own Regiment menu -- three poses of soldiers and one pose of command figure, all made different by separate heads and (in the case of the command) separate right arms.
With the release of our new American Civil War figures, here are some up close and personal shots. Here, we have the Iron Brigade. These are all for sale now on our American Civil War page.
They come in infantry regiment sets, above, or a command set as shown here. The drummer is exclusive to the command set.
These figures in frock coats have a lot of versatility when combined with the various heads we offer, new and old. In this case, they're combined with our existing heads in kepis to make early war Confederates.
Combined with our existing black heads in kepis, these frock-coated figures make ideal 54th Massachusetts infantry.
Here's a personal favorite: early war Union troops in havelocks. Those were cloth coverings for kepis meant to keep out the sun, but which proved unpopular with the troops.
They look even cooler on Confederates!
And here's the classic Union infantry in kepis.
Now we showcase our new ACW Zouaves in all their various incarnations. Thse bodies combined with various heads make for all kinds of different regiments.
Headgear includes kepis, fezes, turbans and even straw hats. An infantry set includes 12 soldiers marching + an officer and a color bearer. In order to get them painted for release, I could only paint up one soldier of each type for display.
While most Zouaves regiments came from the North, the South had a few of its own, the most famous originating from Louisiana -- the LA Zouaves and Wheat's Tigers. The latter made straw hats synonymous with these kinds of soldiers.
Our Zouave command set incluides an officer, color bearer and exclusive drummer. You pick the types of heads you want on them.
