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.

I said I never would, but I did!

Yep, never again would I stick those bloody Vitrix sods together. That's what I said and for quite a long time I stuck to it, but to be honest I'm a tight git and getting a battery of British foot artillery on the cheap seemed to good a chance to resist.
I get the box opened and then remember why I have avoided it for this many years, talk about overkill, at one point I thought that I would find separate eyebrows for the buggers, Vitrix 'there's fousands of em', parts that is!
Never mind, onwards and upwards, the three gun battery is done and added to the British Peninsula force started years ago, they needed the support and they've got it - no excuses now lads.

 I thought I'd use one of the spare limber carriages to construct a small vignette - so:

"The bloody things stuck sarge."

The whole brigade:

No more though!!


  1. "The bloody things stuck sarge."...excellent! A great looking vignette and a beautiful army

  2. Well done!I've got a box of Victrix hoplites that have been sitting on the shelf for about 3 years for the same reason. Now that I'm going with the 15mm Xyston they'll be going on EBay.

  3. Despite the hard work they do look rather spiffing

  4. Love the stuck limber - i might steal that idea. I know what you about Victrix, nice moels but drove me to distraction. I might try Warlord or Perry next time

  5. It's there to be stolen mate, go for it.
