Seeing the wood for the trees

After a little trip to my local model shop the other day, I picked up some terrain for my French & Indian War project. As well as two pre-made trees, I picked up two packs of Woodland Scenics tree armatures along with a bag of light green clump foliage and pack of dead fall. As I mentionedContinue reading “Seeing the wood for the trees”

Base-rate inflation

After a wet, grey and generally miserable week here in Nottingham the clouds have dispersed to revealed a large round shining disk in the skies. British meteorologists are baffled as to the nature of this strange phenomenon but as it has made the place look much more pleasant all round no one is complaining! The bleak week has been very productive however asContinue reading “Base-rate inflation”

Pressing the Advantage

Well it’s that time again so get the kettle on for the Tinpot Teaparty! The Old Guard and I have had a few of games of Muskets & Tomahawks recently and I have put together a gallery of pictures from the first battle earlier in the month. The story unfolds… Another crushing victory for The Old Guardsman! IContinue reading “Pressing the Advantage”

A Brave New World

We have decided to have a gamingContinue reading “A Brave New World”

Progress on the Frontier

With  the festive holidays providing me with plenty of time for hobby projects, I have been busy painting more French & Indian War miniatures. Firstly we have this unit of British-Colonial rangers including the famous Major Robert Rogers (Pictured with the red cockade)… I have also been sporadically painting my Canadian militia models over the last couple of weeks. The first few miniatures (picturedContinue reading “Progress on the Frontier”

Trouble in the colonies

As is my want, I have been seduced by yet another interesting period in military history, that of the French & Indian Wars of the mid 18th century. This era of European colonialism spread to the four corners of the globe and in North America and Southern Canada confrontation between the French and British created sparks that lit the fireContinue reading “Trouble in the colonies”
