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.

An Austrian reserve.

A few more figures to add to the 15mm Austrian Napoleonics. This will give them a solid reserve to roll through the French ogres forces once the disciplined volleys of our solid line infantry have worn them down (who am I kidding eh!).
The two 36 figure battalions on the flanks are Essex, cast flags therefore hand painted, nightmare! the battalion in the middle is composed from spare figures lying around in a box. I've tarted them up and they still look crap but you should have seen them before. They will do to make up the brigade though.













That's it for now.
Dave.

  2. Great look Austrians. What a shame the Emperor will be forced to crush them as usual. :-)

  3. Thanks lads, in the past using General De Brigade rules we have tended to keep the standard ratings of generals and brigadiers the same for both sides, I think for the next game we will have to give the French the edge in this area and see how this affects the battle.
    Is there anyone out there who uses G de B who is a bit dissatisfied with the skirmish rules, I find them a bit ineffective but on the other hand don't want them to be all powerful, any thoughts?

  6. Looking at the two headed eagle on the Austrian flag, I now see that it looks like that f'n bird off Rod Hull and the Emu from years back!
