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.

To anyone daft enough wishing to read these pages written by an average 55 yr old guy heading rapidly towards senility then I thank you for your patience. There is no method to this blog, nor is there any attempt to publish posts with any regularity. I do it cause I want to when I want to and that's about it, se la vie.
2017 and wargaming, well I didn't make any lists of what I wish to get done wargaming wise last year and I ain't going to do it this year either, life tends to get in the way and generally buggers up any plans we make so why make em, if it gets done it gets done, if not, well it's just a hobby after all.
So from me a happy, peaceful and health new year to you all and however you measure success may you all achieve it.
All the best,


  1. Dave,
    All the best Dave, and still only a young wargaming sprog to boot.

  2. Belated Happy 2017 and thanks for inspiring me to start a French Revolutionary War project. How else to spend my pension?

    1. Very kind Collin, I must get those lads out onto the table more often. Im looking forward to David Browns new Nap rules, as you can see I love his ACW Pickett's Charge.
      Spend the pension however you like mate, you earned it!
      All the best for 2017.
