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.
"There's something wrong with our bloody ships today"
Tom, a very good friend at the club asked me to paint his 1,2400 GHQ WW1 British and German ships for the opening phase of Jutland. I thoroughly enjoy painting these exquisite models and he has kindly given permission for them to be put on here. Unfortunately the pictures came out a bit yellow for my liking (crappy lighting) but here they are anyway.
Light cruisers to the front, heavy in the second column:
No doubt we shall be having a game of Naval Thunder at the Boarder Reivers club sometime soon.
