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.

Zee Germans!!!

About two years ago my mate Rob and I picked up a large box (200ish infantry and 80 cavalry) of Foundry 1813 Prussian figures from a local game shop for around £80, not a bad price for that many figures. Foundry are nice enough figures but I do find them rather small in size compared to other ranges and of course usually pretty expensive, the 'deals' seem a bit of a rip off to be honest. As I eventually ended up with them I thought I'd better get started painting them!
First off these are a Battalion of Prussian Reservist infantry:
Some regular infantry (I'll have to get the command stand bought and painted up):


  1. Ah Prussians possibly my least favourite army . How did you manage not to lose the will to will whilst painting them?? Especially since it a nice job...

  2. Really nice work on these guys Dave.

  3. Andy, the thing about this army is that no matter which side your on you can kill Germans, everyone's a winner!!!!!
    Thanks Roger,

  4. Great looking figures. Some impressive painting
