Website Now Live


Just a quickie to say that my website, Darrell Hindley Figure Painter, is now live. There are still a few teething problems mainly down to my almost total lack of experience (!!) but the site has gone live and here's the URL:


Hope that you enjoy viewing it's pages. The good news is that my Blog will be kept going and can be viewed through the website too. My blog will be much more of a day by day thing and will contain details of what my brushes are up :o)

OK, here's the deal.......

My blog is now moving over to my new rather spiffing website courtesy of Andy of WABForum and Tradestands fame.

My new site is currently under developement as I have decided to re-take many of my pics and to be honest this task is not being helped by the weather here in Edinburgh! However I will persevere. For the moment, the gallery will have samples of many of the pics that I have taken of my armies over the past year or so and these will gradually be replaced by newer pics as I find the time and weather conditions to suit :o)

More Longbow Chaps

Well, since my last entry, I missed Havok! as my other half was ill and we had to cancel our little sojourn around the midlands. I really enjoyed Cold Steel so I was a bit miffed but it couldn't be helped and as they say, there's always a next time. However, not to be put off, I'm certainly not putting this army on hold as thus far it's been a bit of a labour of love .

Okey-dokey, here's the next Longbow unit. Another one to come and then it's on to the knights/men-at-arms, which, provided the composition goes well should include a rather spiffing unit with none other than Henry V himself in a pre-battle pep-talk :o)

As you can see below, they're not doing too well.......

A bit of an interlude at this juncture is called for methinks. These, kindly taken by David Imrie last eveing, are of a game that I was playing with my Italo-Normans against Jules of Figures in Comfort with his Almoravids. Alas the game went a awry for the over cautious Normans and their oft previously seen beligerence was replaced by the spread of cowardice and eventual desertion of the field!

Incidentally, David told me that his site was now down and that his work would instead now be appearing in his own gallery section entitled, David Imrie Wargames Projects, on The League of Augsberg site.

Darrell :o)

And here's some more......

Here's Archer unit number two. What I was trying to capture was the feel of a group of French knights and men-at-arms attempting to break into the Archers and cause as much havok as possible. Initially this included quite a bit of planning as I had to determine which mini's go where and also aim to keep the 'pictoral' composition together. I don't think i've done such a bad job and overall i'm very happy with the unit.
More to come so keep tuned in :o)

A quick sneek peek

Here's a few quick photo's of the forthcoming Late HYW English. They're not the best quality photo's but they will give you the right idea:

More info concerning the basing and painting of this unit and others to follow :o)

Below are some of Bill's most excellent French. They look fantastic, although I've never seen them on the table as such. hopefully Bill and I can arrange a game the next time he's up in Scotland.
Anyways..... as I said, very inspiring.
Opening shots of my English coming very soon :o)
