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 thought they couldn't get smaller! 10mm ECW additions.

 An update for the 10mm ECW figures I have been doing.

King and Parliament has some units equipped with attached light guns, given my small unit footfall and the fact that the units had to fit comfortably onto a 10cm hex grid system it would have been impractical to use 10mm figures to represent these attached artillery pieces. I therefore sent to Baccus for their 6mm figures and mounted them on a separate round base so that they could be used as representations of the guns. They fit in well and yet the size difference between the two figure scales shows that this is a marker which can be added to the unit as required.

Denzil Holle's battalia, Parliament.

Sir Thomas Saulsbury's first battalia, pike heavy, Royalist.

Sir Thomas Saulsbury's second battalia pike only. Royalist.

I have a couple of weeks holiday coming up soon so I intend to get all of my fairly considerable 10mm French and Russian 1812 armies out and onto the table top for a good sized General de Armee game so keep an eye out for that report later next month.
