Green Hell!

In a previous post I had finished painting everything that I had for my WWII collection, but have since treated myself to a few models, including a tank for my allies. Having recently read James Holland’s Brothers in Arms, about the Nottingham Sherwood rangers tank regiment I was inspired to buy a Sherman Firefly forContinue reading “Green Hell!”

Schwerpunkt!

For a number of years now I have had a WWII skirmish project simmering away on the back-burner. In a previous post I showed off my US airborne infantry but I have documented very little on my blog since then. My collection is somewhat unusual, including as it does, a captured Char B tank, aContinue reading “Schwerpunkt!”

One day in Normandy

I have been busy over the last couple of months painting rather a lot of miniatures for a friend to make a little ‘pocket money’. It has been somewhat of a double edge sword, as although I haven’t had as much time to paint minis for myself, I have been able to paint figures IContinue reading “One day in Normandy”

Hearts of oak are our men!..

Following on from my previous post I have been painting some more miniatures for A Song of Drums & Shakos. To begin with, we have the ‘Master & Commander’ … This miniature is Captain ‘lucky’  John from Warlord Games, which I believe is the exclusive miniature that comes with the Black Powder rules. It is ,in my opinion,Continue reading “Hearts of oak are our men!..”

Vive La Revolution!

I have been quietly beavering away at my paint station over the last 6 months and my focus has been mainly upon my Napoleonic miniatures collection. I had always wanted to paint and collect miniatures from the Napoleonic period but could never bring myself to paint so many hordes of troops for battles in theContinue reading “Vive La Revolution!”

‘Battlecry’ – Meeting Engagement

Regular readers will know about my fondness for the Commands & Colors series of games by Richard Borg. This fantastic range of games is often referred to as  ‘light’ wargame due to the simple, easy to learn rules and lack of tables or charts, but I think that does it a disservice. One of theContinue reading “‘Battlecry’ – Meeting Engagement”

Uncharted Shores

I have long adored Napoleonic war gaming, but could never bring myself to buy and paint the hordes of troops needed to play it at the grand scale. I also have several friends who have dedicated many, many hours to this end, including my particular friend, the esteemed Mr. Pancake Payne who’s Napoleonic forces are aContinue reading “Uncharted Shores”

Battle Cries & Rebel Yells

As well as all the other projects I’ve been detailing on this very blog over the past couple of weeks, I have been up to my neck in static grass and flock whilst making a terrain board on which to play Battle Cry using my 10mm American Civil War miniatures. Battle Cry is a hex-based miniaturesContinue reading “Battle Cries & Rebel Yells”

Black Powder War

The golden mid-morning sun blazed in the sky casting the verdant European countryside in an amber glow. The sound of birdsong and the chirp of insects drifted lazily along the pleasant breeze, the glory of God’s creation was evident everywhere one looked. Any farmer worth his salt would view this bountiful landscape, safe in theContinue reading “Black Powder War”

Good things come in small packages

During my couple of days off, I have been busy sorting out my 1/600 WWII miniatures. Firstly I decided to redo the labels for my infantry stands because I have never been quite happy with the ones I created before, as I wanted them to be easy to identify when playing but be generally unobtrusiveContinue reading “Good things come in small packages”
