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.

I'm back

After about three weeks my laptop is finally back up and running. I havn't anything to put on here at the moment but at least after £45 for a new hard drive I can access my blog again, though I don't know much about computers (I'm an old luddite!) like everything else electronic this laptop will probabally be 'out of date' by now. It does me though so £45 compared to £1000 or whatever aint too bad.
I'm still working my way through a good friend's 15mm Russian SYW army, if he's ok with it I'll put some photos up on here as I go, at this rate it will be late Feb before I finnish them so you can imajine how many there are!

The pictures say it all really.
