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.

Medieval mutterings

Finally the photographs taken by John for Aprils Miniature Wargames magazine have been published and I can now get them on the blog. Truthfully the Editor would have had no problem but I felt it only right to wait until the article was out before putting them on here.
It was a good game on the night with (if I remember rightly) a victory for the Scots!
Firstly the worst picture first, some tramps wandered in and stared at the table, one bugger even had the cheek to sit down!





Various views of the action, English Knights/men at arms:


Scots advance:


The main Battles clash:






The Hobilars sitting it out in the rear:

Most of the stuff is Old Glory, but I see that David Imrie is putting out a range for this period under Claymore Castings, also Flags of War are doing most of the various standards and shield transfers (wish I'd had them when I hand painted everything for Otterburn). They do look very good figures, must resist adding to this lot!
I'll put on some pictures of individual figures later.
Dave.

  4. Obviously those porrige noshers didn't get a proper taste of clothyards or your rules didn't have the "Historical inevitability clause" or the Scots didn't field a rugger team!!!

  5. Thank chaps, Andy the only reason that the Scots won Otterburn was that Hotspur was a compleate heed the ball nutter. He charged the first enemy formation he saw leaving his few archers and Hobilars behind, got charged in the flank and got himself captured, admittedly after a two hour fight (nobody said he wasn't a brave nutter!).
