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.

French reinforcements

The overdue 15mm French reinforcements have finally been compleated, 108 figures to be precise. This will provide a balenced force to oppose the Austrians here (don't worry Andy, I'm not saying the army is compleate, I know none of us ever really get there!).

Three battalions of the French 17th Rgt:

The infantry:

The cavalry:

Next, well I could do with re-organising my 15mm Franco Prussian war stuff as I need to prepare for a large reinactment of Gravelotte - St Privat later this year. There will be a bit of painting involved but I need to see where I am figure wise first.


  1. Very impressive reinforcements Dave...and well put in order!
