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.

Individual figures

Well you can tell I've got a few days off work as I have time to put some pictures on here!
Again as can be seen by the quality, the photos were taken by John Ridley and not me.

L to R. Sir James Douglas (killed at Otterburn) and his standard bearer Sir Archibald Dougles (Scots).

L to R. Sir William Ruthven and Sir John Swinton (Scots).

Much better photos than I could have taken, thanks John.
