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.

ACW Bridging train

Here is the ACW bridging train I've just finished for the impending game coming up at Micks, Scotty needed some supply type stuff to (I think) clog up the approach roads to the battlefield.
As I have mentioned in the past I was kindly given most of these ACW figures (un-painted) by Tom a good friend and a club member.
Now, not to put too fine a point on it but Tom has the largest supply train I've seen for quite some time (no pun intended big boy!) and kind chap though he is, when he see's these he'll wish he'd kept them. Not that their anything fantastic but the man has a thing about wagons.
Anyway here's the gear:

Next thing to begin is a 28mm 48 figure French Revolutionary Austrian battalion. This (obviously) will take a bit of time so don't hold your breath.


  1. Very nice work, always great on a battlefield!

  2. Very nice indeed. I'm looking forward to seeing more Revolutionary Wars figures, especially the Austrians.

  3. Activity!You feeling OK Dave?

  4. Bollocks, just thought should have called this post 'A bridge too far'!

  5. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

  6. Anonymous,
    Don't really know what to say other than that if I can do it, anyone can.
    I have a pay as you go phone which if it does go off, I get it out, fumble with it while trying to remember which button to press when answering, swearing profusely at the same time. My wife and son's constantly take the piss.
    Andy at Old Glory will tell you that I once was about to take a photo of a game using my phone when he and the rest of the lads had to tell me to turn it round and look through the correct end!
    Give it a go, don't get stuck and feel that you have to put something on regularly. Most of all do it for yourself, and don't be bothered about how many people look at it. This blog is simply a record of what I paint and which games I play in, if people look at it, great, if not I couldn't give a chuff.
    My that was a ramble.
