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.

Get'n there - slowly!

A bit more progress with the 1870 French Imperial Guard.
2nd Division 1st, 2nd and 3rd Regiments plus Guard Zouarves. Based as usual for Fire & Fury Frances:

No artillery yet, the rest of the Voltigures next.


  1. Beautiful job Dave, they look great..."En avant les Fran├žais!"

  2. looking good. I need to get cracking on the Bavarians

  3. Cheers Phil, if we follow historical reality the Imperial Guard won't be advancing particularly far, but as usual the dice will determine everything!
    Yeh Scotty, your rate of painting is pathetic - now that's sarcasm!!!
