Welcome to my wargaming blog,
I'm Dave and live in Morpeth, Northumberland in the UK.
This may or may not be a regular thing, we'll just have to see how it goes.

I am a painter/collector of figures first and a wargamer second. My thrill in this great hobby of ours is to place that final well researched & painted unit into the cabinet. The actual gaming with the figures is an important but secondary experience, we all like to win, but it isn't the be all and end all of it, being with good friends and having fun is.
Hope you will enjoy reading this blog as much as I will writing in it.
Just to remind the visitor to scroll down the various pages and click on 'older posts' to see more.

10mm Hessen - Kassel War of the Spanish Succession

First post, ever, on any blog, anywhere, so I'll try to put some pictures up and see how it goes.
I got quite a bit done figure painting wise this weekend. Progress with the 10mm WSS Blenheim project is going quite well (only working at it for two years so far!).
Hessen Kassel first, the whole brigade:

The two battalions just completed this weekend, first Prinz Wilhelm:

Watenslaben's battalion:

Most of the figures are Old Glory 10mm other than the command which are Pendraken. Both are great ranges though I do find the Old Glory slightly easier to paint as they are cast in strips so that you don't have to paint right round each figure if you don't want to.
I will put more of the WSS 10mm stuff on the next time, I'm just starting to get the hang of this now!
Getting late, work tomorrow, goodnight ladies and gents.


  1. Those look great! Do you plan on doing any painting tutorials?

  2. Thanks very much Craig, truthfully it's not something I've thought about but if I get most of the stuff I've collected over the years on the site, then maybe I'll give it a go.
    Please keep looking in occasionally

  3. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done a
    awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely
    quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!

  5. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she
    has 83 views. I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
