Welcome

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.
Dave.

10mm Caesarian

These Old Glory 10mm figures were originally based up for Warmaster but as most of our lads at the club have progressed on to Hail Caeser they will of course do just as well for that set of rules. As the Old Glory figures come in strips of five then to fit the set sizes of the Warmaster bases some of the figure strips had to be snipped off to fill the bases up, a pain to be honest, but it does look better than having gaps between the stands.
I quite fancied Caesers wars against Pompey for a while, it's still an ongoing project so there's still plenty to do (like so much else!) but I'm getting there.
Three stands to a unit, with each unit representing either a Cohort or if the scale is made smaller i.e. ranges and movement halved, a Legion thereby enabling larger engagements to be represented.
Four Cohorts of an Eastern Legion.

 Slingers
 Western Legion
Legionaries
 With archers to the front
Gallic cavalry
Archers

That should do for now, however Neal and I will be trying out the 10mm Marlborough using Blackpowder. I have set the table up so he'll be popping over
 tonight to get started. These things are usually played out over a few weeks but I'll be taking regular photo's during critical points in the game and will then put them on here. Keep a look out!
Dave.
