Don’t Tread on Me!

On Saturday afternoon, Graham and I were booked in to take part in a spot of tank driving and shooting at Armourgeddon based in Leicestershire. We turned up a little early and took the opportunity to have a walk around the site and snapped a couple of pictures… When our time came around, we ‘suitedContinue reading “Don’t Tread on Me!”

Windswept & Interesting

I had a rather fascinating day out on Saturday at the Newark Air Museum. As with most air museums many of the exhibits are situated outside and the English weather was less than obliging with a cutting wind that seemed to permeate through even the thickest winter clothing! The sun did, however, make cameo at intervals throughout the day soContinue reading “Windswept & Interesting”

What an ice couple of weeks

I have been a little quiet over the last couple of weeks but it hasn’t been my fault!?… honest! The blame lies squarely on the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. I have been a fan of the Winter Olympics for a very long time and an even bigger fan of the sport of ice hockey, soContinue reading “What an ice couple of weeks”

Canada at War

After having received a last-minute text from my good friend Graham, letting me know that he was free for a game on Sunday, I wasted no time in finding a scenario for us to play Crossfire:WWII using my 1/600 scale miniatures. As I mentioned in my previous post, the anniversary of the D-Day landings took place on Thursday, so I was keen toContinue reading “Canada at War”

Bolt Action: Locked & Loaded

I had a rather interesting gaming experience the other day after having been invited to my friend Nathan ‘Pancake’ Payne’s home for a WWII skirmish game. Upon arriving I was greeted with a cup of hot tea (which was much appreciated after a long, damp walk) and a quite striking battlefield, indeed, a veritable ‘Slice of Normandie’. Nathan hosted a gameContinue reading “Bolt Action: Locked & Loaded”

Thinking warm thoughts

This was the view from my kitchen door here in Nottingham, England on Sunday morning…. So, in an attempt to dispel the frozen temperatures, my hobbying activities have turned to the warmer climes of the desert…. to be a little more specific, the Sinai Desert 1967. I’ve been very interested in the Arab/Israeli conflicts of both the 21stContinue reading “Thinking warm thoughts”

Tanks for the memories!

Now I am a self-confessed tread-head, so when my good friends Sam and Rachel told me that they had bought me a tank driving day for my 30th last September I was over the moon! As they weren’t able to book it for the date in question, Sam had decided that we would go out forContinue reading “Tanks for the memories!”

Up hill and down dale

Last weekend I went away to a place called Kettlewell in the Yorkshire Dales for a friend’s birthday party. We stayed in a hostel booked out especially for the occasion and spent Saturday morning walking out in the Dales, the afternoon playing games and then partied into the wee small hours of Sunday morning. It was a pleasant,Continue reading “Up hill and down dale”
