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.

Broglies Rgt, 1794-5

Another addition to the Emigre brigade for the French Revolutionary troops, this time Briglie's regiment. This short lived formation fought in Flanders, was raised in 94 and after retreating with the British was disbanded in 95. Their were only 230 men raised so I'm stretching it a bit here but as I had spare Old Glory 1812 American figures to paint up I thought they'd fit in here.



  1. That's a lovely looking unit and the Revolutionary Wars are high on my list for this year, in terms of ordering figures and trying to get some games in.

    1. Do it Steve, it's a great period just as colourful as Napoleonic's with plenty of variety.

  2. A lovely colourful unit Dave...
    Always a very tempting period...

    All the best. Aly

  3. Lovely looking regiment Dave

  4. And why not. A unit whose life was only one year deserves to be created, well done.

  5. Well done, they beautiful and so disciplined, good luck to their ennemies in front of them!
