ATKM Original Figures

This page is a showcase of painted ATKM figures in our own collection, or from our wonderful supporters. Look for us at a convention and check these figures out firsthand. We use them extensively for demonstration games and as table decoration.

Customer John S requested a set of very custom 49th Foot, the Green Tigers, from the War of 1812. These include a corporal, sergeant, a couple sets of white trousers versus the gray of the rest, and one Belgic shako versus stovepipes. Figures assembled and prepped by ATKM. Professionally painted by buddy Dean R.
Another set painted by Dean at the same time as the troops above. These CSA infantry go out to customer Steve S. This is perhaps my favorite figure set from Dean yet. I know I keep saying that, but each new one he does is my next favorite! The fading of the gear and clothes is an amazing touch.
I like these so much, they get a second row of pics!
Painting buddy Dean R has helped me out a bunch by working on these figures for a customer. They're King's Loyalists and rifles in hunting shirts, all from the AWI. These are for Paul M, who uses 54s to play the American Revolution version of Command & Colors. Some great work here by Dean!
Scott L shares his excellent work and notes: " First conversion with ATKM straw hat and AIP body. "Louisiana Tigers." I had to paint the Zouave jambiers on the "Tiger" as carving away the plastic might weaken the legs of the AIP figure.
Longtime supporter Steve M sends these pics of his work on (Left) dismounted Brunswick dragoons. Steve converted them from our scond edition Hessian jagers. Right is a set of Napoleonic-era British 19th Light Dragoons, ready to fight in America or on the Continent. Amazing work from Steve, as ever!
Here's an AWI French army I've created for customer Ed Y. This is the "combined arms" glamor shot of infantry (3), skirmishers, cavalry and command.
A gret deal of conversion and painting went into these figures, most of which are ATKM, but some (Lauzun's cavalry) are plastics
The centerpiece of the army is this command stand modeled after Rochambeau. The man himself, front and center, is a Tradition figure I had for years and finally sent into the game. The color bearers are antique Charben or Cherilea plastics that I got off ebay years ago. It was time they got a home as well, and Ed will give them a good one.
Buddy Dean R is helping me out with some painting projects, like this set of our Continental infantry from the AWI. Dean does great work, as you can see. I really like his use of color, and his blackling is excellent.
Here we have Lauzun's Legion cavalry, now complete for customer Ed Y. Converting and painting these figures was a long road, but worth it. There are few ATKM parts involved -- they're almost entirely plastics and plastic bits from other manufacturers. Other materials include adhesive cloth, wire, greenstuff and a little blood (mine, not their enemies').
The majority of plastic in these comes from Italeri and Armies in Plastic. These join Ed's new AWI French army.
A ways back I did some AWI general conversions for good supporter Steve M. Here's Steve's painting handiwork on those models. Truly excellent painting and basing!
The British army of the American Revolution commissioned by customer Bob F is complete. Bob wanted his army to focus on the 3rd "Buffs," which explains the facing and small cloth colors you see throughout these shots. This is a grenadier company in all its period glory. I had an emotional imperative to give them a drummer as their musician.
Customer Jim L ordered a set of 16th British light dragoons for his ever-growing armies of the American Revolution. This unit is a treat to paint with its Tarleton-style headgear and leopard-print turbans.
A couple AWI officer conversions round out Jim's order -- one for each side, Patriot and British.
Customer John S order some custom converted sergeants from the War of 1812. These cover British regulars, American regulars, and American Rifles. All have sashes added with greenstuff, and in some cases shoulder wings.
Painting force of nature Bob L shares these pics of his AWI Queen's Rangers. These are the legion's highlanders, grenadiers, battalion men and light infantry.
This is a Continental army painted for customer Ed Y. Here they are assmebled in all their glory.
The Hermitage, birthplace of Andrew Jackson and now museum dedicated to his memory, contacted me to acquire some War of 1812 era miniatures. They wanted to offer them in their gift shop to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans -- a siege staged 200 years ago as of this writing! The above figures are mounted militia. I put them on TSSD plastic horses when I realized how well the riders and mounts would go together.
 
Customer Joshua L wanted a command figure of General Herkimer moments before his death. The tree in the background is the one on which he'll live his last moments.
 
This set of Patriots underwent several head swaps for separate heads in our line, to create a diverse unit in hunting shirts.
To make this AWI patriot artillery set unique, I took off the heads and replaced them with ones in leather caps to create a Rhode Island battery. Some of the crew were also replaced with ensigns normally part of our Queen's Rangers, adapted to be gunners.
Here's a toy soldier interpretation of Patrick Fergsuon at  the Battle of King's Mountain, as requested and brainstormed with customer Joshua L. His right arm is in a sling from a previous wound, and he wears a good deal of civilian clothing, but we added flourishes of martial dress from his regular unit, the 71st Highlanders. The bonnet is a prime example.
This mounted general was converted by giving him a left arm normally from our ACW line, with a cuff added from greenstuff.
Ed Y ordered a set of Continental infantry, to which I did some head conversions -- the standard ones were cut off about half the set, and replaced with separate heads from our AWI line. Looks like a whole new unit, all from the same basic figures.
Also for Ed are these New York light infantry, whose uniform was captured from British supplies. The red coats were dyed brown, with green facings and white linings removed and sewn back on after dying. I figure the drummer would have kept his green coat to be in classic reverse colors, only with red facings retained. Ed will flock all his troops so they match his existing collection.
Customer Bob B posted these pics of his work on an ATKM Army in a Box, acquired from someone else's collection, and brought to life. Bob does lovely work! You can see his blog posts on the subject by clicking here. A second post is here.
Every year customer Marc N commissions a diorama dedicated to his hero Richard Montgomery, general of the Continental army in the American Revolution.
This year's scene was a particular challenge: Montgomery's death while attacking Quebec. The challenge was getting attackers, defenders, a blockhouse and artillery all on the same display board and in the same small display case.
Here are the results, a mixture of plastic figures from various manufacturers, along with some ATKM pieces. The blockhouse was scratch built. I would like for it to have been taller, but the diplay case imposed limits. This scene will be on display in September in the Montgomery, NY museum.
Buddy and talented painter Rod F sends in these pics of his growing AWI Continental collection. They are the Pennsylvania Rifles, a mounted general, and Haslet's Delaware Regiment, from left to right. Rod does some awesome work, with no small amount of converting on Haslet's boys.
I have been hard at work blending together my AWI collection originally painted over a span of 7 years. It needed an overhaul to blend everything together. I used a black-varnish treatment and added static grass to all the bases. These are some shots of the Patriots. The figures are mostly ATKM, but I have added some from other manufacurers.
Likewise, here's my updated British, Hessian and Loyalist army. Once again, almost all ATKM figures, but there are some conspicuous suspects from other manufacturers, like Cornwallis on the far right. He also got a varnish. Sacrilege, I know!
Buddy and good supporter Steve M sends in these pics of his burgeoning Napoleonics collection, including ATKM, Italeri French hussars (plastic), and Victrix French flank companies (also plastic). Awesome troops and terrain, Steve!
For months during 2013 I painted a Napoleonic Russian army for customer Tim A. That project is finally complete, and here are pics of the assembled force.
The army includes 6 infantry units, 3 cavalry, 3 artillery, 2 skirmishers units, and 1 mounted general.
The majority of these are metal figures from Black Cat. My understanding is they're no longer available in metal, but Harold at BC does offer plastic versions of the infantry.
The cavalry is a mixture of plastics from Armies in Plastic and Italeri, in some cases on DSG horses.
Tim plays "All the King's Men" games. Hopefully he'll send some pics of these troops in action against the French I painted for him in 2012.
These Russian Chasseurs a Cheval go to customer Tim A. They're Armies in Plastic riders with Black Cat metal heads (converted by me). The horses are DSG, which ATKM carries.
These Napoleonic Russian formed jagers are by Black Cat. While jagers might not have carried colors, regiments awarded the Cross of St George certainly did (there's historical precedent for even jagers to have done so). Their all-green uniforms really make them pop.
The Surrender of Montreal is now complete. The scene is mounted on a rustic board, and ready for display under glass. It's a mix of several different manufacturers' figures, plastic and metal.
If you're near Montgomery, NY, you can actually visit this diorama on display in city hall courtesy of its patron Marc N.
The first set of Napoleonic Russians are complete for customer Tim A. These are Black Cat castings acquired by Tim and sent straight to me for painting by Harold at Black Cat.
Customer Cohen B ordered a Southern Campaign Army in a Box for the American Revolution. Here are some shots of the assembled Army in a Box with all its accoutrements. Pretty sexy, I must say.
These troops are led by the AWI folk hero Daniel Morgan, rough and tumble mountain man of the Colonial South.
A large collection of AWI British Legion troops has been completed for customer Cohen B. These figures all required re-tooled heads taken from our 1812 line to make the approriate Tarleton headgear.
Some uniforms are speculative, like the round-about jackets used by these infantry, but little historical data is available on what these guys actually wore, so these fellas could be spot on!
Here are some shots of the complete British Legion Army in a Box, now in Cohen's possession.

These boys are ready ready to re-fight Waxhaws or Cowpens, with Tarleton himself in charge

(far right).

Here is the final result of a display piece built for a customer. He wanted a scene of American General Montgomery leading the troops to invade Canada in 1775. The space left as exposed wood on the end of the base will be covered by an engraved plaque. Painting by Tim Green of TN. Base by ATKM.
These gentlemen are our Napoleonic-era French painted as Nassau infantry from the Battle of Waterloo. No particular conversions were necessary, just paint!
A customer wanted a couple cavalry sets for his Waterloo Allied army. I immediately thought of these two sets. Here we have British Light Dragoons from Italeri. A great set of plastic figures, with lots of style and compelling detail. I opted for these figures over own own BLD because I wanted them to look like these...
Scots Grey! I mean, what more iconic cavalry can you get from Waterloo? French cuirassiers, maybe. Maybe! These are Call to Arms riders on Italeri horses. I went with CtA plastic riders because Italeri's kind of look goofy to my eye. I dunno; it's just a weird set from them. Italeri's Scot horses are fantastic, though! The pennant bearer is perhaps unhistorical -- they say no banners were carried into battle -- but I couldn't resist the conversion.
Rounding out our Waterloo customer's French forces are dragoons by Italeri. These are plastic riders and horses. I haven't painted these figures before, but really enjoyed working on them.
Friend of ATKM David Crenshaw painted up these excellent Lieb Hessians from the American Revolution. Check out that ticking on their leggings! Madness!
Freelance painter Adam Pratt did up a set of AWI British light infantry for us. I really like his style of painting and use of washes or perhaps dips for shading.
Very talented artist Phillip Flockhart painted a set of AWI British infantry for us, and took these outstanding pics of them in an improvised diorama. He achieves fantastic textures with the brush. These gents will join the lights, above, to form a painted ATKM army.
A longtime customer's painted AWI project continues, this time with American attackers at the AWI Battle of Stony Point. American light infantry stormed British defenses, among the attackers the so-called Hercules of the Revolution, Peter Francisco (right). These are a combination of ATKM and plastic figures from various manufacturers.
AWI Battle of Long Island British and Hessians
These AWI British Grenadiers were painted by Adam Pratt at Fineline Studios.
Pics of these awesome fellows come from friend-of-ATKM Steve Miller. Steve has created forces for the Battle of Cowpens. These are just some of the Americans.
And these are just some of the British, includiong the dastardly Tarleton and his legion cavalry. Steve will be using these troops to run "ATKM" games at an upcoming Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas convention.
