Wargaming Down Under

Well its been an interesting end to the year so far, we are a few weeks of from christmas and I have yet to do some real gaming in the shed. I did get the 84mm CG refurbed ready for a local event. We also got a few Napoleonic games of Laselle played.

The Sheds 84mm CG part of a Falklands Weapons display.

So what has been happening. Besides yet another dark period of Illness which took me a while to get over, the shed has been far from my thoughts. As soon as I get it game ready something else crops up to take over the table. Despite these set backs I have managed to acquire a 28mm Roman Army and have played a few games of Swordpoint. Then another trip to Caliver books got me a excited, Only waited around 20 years for this to come out.

So watch this space, as some 1940 gaming may be on the horizon.
Any ways the biggest thing for me this year was a trip Down Under to see a friend who twisted my arm into playing in a local competition of  Infinity. Needless to say a crash course in the basics and of we went and I got trashed, but I still had fun. 

Another highlight of my visit was I got around Sydney and a few of the Museums, one trip put me at Holsworthy Barracks, Liverpool at the Engineer Museum. Here are some of my photos I took.

4 hours from Sydney saw me in Canberra, and I got to look round the National War memorial and museum which was quite an experience.

Oh well there's more to come but this post is getting a bit long so I will sign off for now, till later

Work in Progress - 15mm Napoleonic Armies

I have been secretly busy the last year acquiring painted 15mm Minifigs to enlarge my Napoleonic armies.

In the works I have French, British, Austrian, Prussian, and my first army of old; Saxons. I also have access to a very large Russian army belonging to my father. The French are also reinforced by Westphalians.


In the main the Austrians are all Old school (Series 2) Minifigs with some New style Minifigs thrown in. The Army is in the middle of being re-based. Missing are a couple of Jager battalions and a Grenz battalion.


Again the Prussians are mainly Old School Minifigs with some of the battalions being of the New minifigs and a few random makes for the militia battalions. I am also still basing some of the battalions and not all are shown, there are at least another 4 or 5 battalions still awaiting to be based.


My Saxon army is my First Napoleonic Army and is probably around 30 years old. It started with mu uncle giving me a starter set from the Guardroom which was at the time was a wargames shop in Dunstable near Luton.

Over the years it has grown into the VII Corps of the 1812 Grande Armee. Mainly Minifigs, Old School and even some 1st series figures which my Uncle gave me . It also has some Essex Hussars which I am not completely taken with and show one of my painting phases I went through.

I shall do more updates over the next few months. Thanks for looking
