    A brief review with photos of the new and updated models from Tumbling Dice for the 1879 War of the Pacific on the blog:

    The Huascar is particularly nice.

    Great news. I hadn’t been on the web site in a while. I wonder if they’ve tweaked any of the ACW stuff?

    I don’t think so but the ACW range could really do with a revamp and expansion, especially for the riverine stuff.

    I’ve got mine that I’m painting up slowly in between commissions!

    Those look great!

    I didn’t know the Blanco Encalada and Almirante Cochrane had also been resculpted.

    Thanks Jim – hey seem to be fresh models though I never had the old ones so I can’t be sure. They were a joy to paint up though. There’s also a new book focusing on the naval campaign on pre-order at Amazon – due out end of the month.

    Nice work as always.

    Thanks. Hoping to run the Battle of Angamos in the next couple of days, if all goes according to plan.

    I’m now painting the two Peruvian monitors, as well as some more corvettes and schooner gunboats:

    I am looking forward to seeing it gamed out. Are you making any tweaks to the rules?

    I may try to work out some rules for scuttling and perhaps a couple of tweaks but they work well as they are for this level of scenario.

    These look fantastic. I’ve always been a little obsessed with the War of the Pacific. Great to see Tumbling Dice have re-mastered their range.

    I saw on your blog that you’re thinking of scratch building the Loa. Will be really interested to see how that turns out. Have you given any thought to modelling the other Peruvian ‘ironclad’, Victoria? It’d be tiny at 1:2400th scale, but it does have an interesting shape to it:

    And, given how well you’re other scratch builds have come out, have you considered approaching the Paul at Tumbling Dice to see if he’d be interested in casting them? I’ve always found him rather approachable and affable….and it’d mean some of us could get our paws on them!

    Thanks.

    I did think about the Victoria but couldn’t find any pictures…I’ll have to have a go!

    I have converted another TD model (the ASV45 Armide) into the Independencia, rather than using the TD model which has foresails that would need to be removed. I chopped the Armide up and added masts from Brigade Models Aeronef range. They’re a bit over scale but I think they look OK?

    Your conversion of the Armide certainly does look the part. How does it scale up size wise? Any chance of a photo next to the TD model?

    I’ve never been able to find any photos of Victoria, or much in the way of solid details to be honest. Very much looking forward to seeing your go at modelling it.

    Purely asking again out of self interest; would you be interested at all in casting them up, if the opportunity presented itself?

    The Armide model is just about the same length as the new TD Independencia one. I’ll see if I can get a photo sorted but in haven’t assembled the Independencia yet, as I’m saving it for something else.

    I’m not sure Paul would be interested in casting some of my scratchbuild but I suppose I could ask?

    If you did just happen to take a photo of the two next to each other, that’d be awfully handy. After seeing your ships painted up I’ve felt an urge to redo my South American navies.

    Paul might be up for it. It just seems a shame that only you should get to have the ships you make! I’d buy them if they were available, but then I think I’ve bought everything in TD’s ironclad range.

    Here you go, with apologies for the dodgy WIP paintwork.

    The Armide was roughly the same dimensions as the Independencia, so they’re not far off in terms of size and also hull profile, layout etc:

    Armide = 68.9m x 14.06m x 6.43m

    Independencia = 65.5m x 13,6m x 6.6m

    Independencia

    Thetis (sister ship to Armide but with twin funnels)

    Yeah, the Armide really does fit the part.

    Would you take any offence to me copying the conversion for myself?

    Incidentally, I’m thinking of using the Independencia model as a Comus class corvette for my 1880’s Royal Navy project.

    I think that’s not far off, although I probably should have left the fore and aft gunports as they were, rather than scraping them back, to represent the sponson sticky outy things. I think I’ll go back and add then with a little bit of plastic card.

    I’ve now finished my War of the Pacific project, so here are the two rival fleets of Peru and Chile, all Tumbling Dice except the tiny gunboat Covadonga, which is from Hallmark.

    First up, the plucky Peruvians.

    Followed by the chivalrous Chileans:

    Great collection for what is normally a little gamed subject. Nicely done from all aspects.

    Never wrestle with a pig. You both get muddy and the pig just likes it.
