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.

15mm Wurttemberg 1870

 It has been quite some time since I painted up any 15mm Franco Prussian War stuff, I really had done with those two armies though as you dear reader will see the period itself is most certainly ongoing.

The drive for adding the Wurttemberg contingent was that after testing out and loving Bloody Big Battles while gaming the battle of Froeschwiller (Worth) I decided to re-try the battle using Age of Valour rules which require considerably more figures per unit. This is well doable given that I have hundreds of the chaps painted up but not of course Wurttemberg figures, plenty not painted but, hey I've gone this far so why not!

So here is the Wurttemberg Field Division with some of the artillery required, a few more batteries still to do. Outpost infantry and cavalry, Old Glory 15's guns.
