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.

You just can't stop, can you?

I know, I know, here's my completed 10mm Caesarian Roman Civil War armies See here. No more I said from now on I only finish armies I don't add to them.
Well bollocks, here's these itdy bity tiny 10mm Pendraken figures shouting "paint me, paint me", I figures a few more auxiliary, cavalry and a couple of generals wouldn't come amiss, I had the day of so there you go. So much for good intentions!

Now here's the thing, when I sent to Pendraken for the Marian army pack which contains both the figures in the photographs above and the legionaries you can see pictured by following the link above (I will paint those later).
Now to me, and bare in mind I ain't no expert, the troops above portray Imperial auxiliaries, horse and foot archers, not light troops and cavalry of the Marian/Caesairian period, nor does the legionary seem to show a infantry man of Marius and remember Marius came before Caesar.
I would be very interested if anyone out there knows more about this, I'm reluctant to criticise, as I say what do I know!
Any thoughts, please drop a line.
