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.

A young Napoleon - and his mates.

Received a package from CP Models of Leicester of a young Napoleon and various generals from around 1799 - 1800ish (Kleber, DeCustine, Kellerman, Desaix.), I found out about their release from Michael's blog here
As a break from 10mm Caesarian Romans, the bloody little buggers! I thought I'd get these lads done, though frankly I have plenty of French Rev generals these did look nice.






The Grenadier in the picture is I think an old Front Rank figure which I dug out half painted from a box. Now this is where I think I may be going a little odd. I did need another suitable figure to fill the base, but when I saw him I was somewhat happy for the dude in that he was getting used after many years in the spares box. I've been painting these little chaps for so long they seem to be getting personalities of their own, boy I need a rest!
Anyway the castings look good and painted up pretty well.
Dave.

  2. Hopefully the decisions will be to throw high dice when required Phil!
