Gallery: Ubique Matt’s Plastics!

Not long ago we held a Black Powder Open Day at Maelstrom Games’ Eye of the Storm venue. We were delighted when Warlord forum-dweller, Ubique Matt, dropped in with a big box of great-looking miniatures. Time for us to share the love and show them all off. There’s lots of fantastic miniatures to see here from our English Civil War line as well as some Perry Miniatures American Civil War range, so take your time!

A full regiment of of Newcastle’s Whitecoats on display, built from our Pike and Shotte Infantry, perhaps just before their famous last stand at the Battle of Marston Moor! Who can see a splendid sight like this and resist starting their own English Civil Wars army?

Aside from adding Scots Bonnets as headgear Matt also painting the top of the officer’s head as if he’s wearing the metal skullcap known as a ‘secrete’. Subtle but very classy touch.

The massed ranks of Whitecoats make ma superb-looking ‘hedgehog’ formation. One of the most iconic images in the period.

THe addition of our metal Armoured Pikemen not only give the regiment even more variety of pose but also add a little more endurance to the unit.

Sometimes it’s the little touches that make a regiment stand out from the crowd. Touches such as adding a Morion helmet to the belt of the bonnet-wearing pikeman show why Matt’s models drew such admiration on the day.

Another great example of Matt’s creative thinking is the addition of arms from our plastic Firelocks to give the impression of musketeers advancing.

Is there no stopping Matt from personalising his force? Seems not as we see this musketeer has revered his weapon to use it as a club in  close combat. Conversions like this show why plastic models are so popular.

Compact and maneuverable, this 4 barreled Scots Frame Gun has been based up in a diorama fashion. Ubique Mat has even made sure to paint the barrel straps as rope, to reflect the fact that metal can cause errant sparks – a poor idea when gunpowder is involved!

No damp matchlocks are present here! This fabulous Firelock Storming Party is all set to take an objective through a fury of smoke and fire.

Matt’s Firelocks are full of conversions and really make this unit stand out even amongst his other great-looking regiments.

Not content with painting just one Civil War, Ubique has sent along a lovely set of American Civil War infantry, built from the Perry’s offerings,  to look at as well!
