Imaginations in 42mm (3)

I finished the 3 infantry units & 1 artillery gun for my late 19th/early 20th century imaginations campaign. I applied 2 varnish coats, one spray-painted mat varnish, then a gloss varnish applied with a paint brush.

I was not entirely sure the gloss varnish would work out ok, but it did. I have the practice of first trying the varnish coat on a few figures first, before applying them to the whole bunch.

I am quite happy with the results. Below you see them, using my vintage wooden block set to build a small fort.


  1. Forgot to ask you to tell us about the mountains in the back of the last picture.

    1. These are backdrop elements as used for model railway layouts. I bought them 2nd hand from a fellow wargamer, but I have no idea who the original manufacturer is.

      I have 4 different variants, and I use them as a backdrop on my permanent table. I place them in two rows, so there is some "depth" to them as well.

      Very effective visual to "break" the visual line between the edge of your table and the adjoining wall.

  2. Fantastic looking game- love the wear and tear on the blocks.
