Merry Christmas and Plans for 2012

First and foremost can I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and may 2012 bring you all that you hope for.

The pics of the painting table show my almost completed company of Albion foot, may still complete before Sunday and then the command next week.

In the background is my plastic Saxon contingent for Saga which is also making good progress.

I have also been dabbling with 'flats' and was thinking of making up some bases for use with my Command and Colours board game, the first few Greeks are shown below

Will be looking at placing 10-12 infantry on a base! Quite enjoyed the painting a different style to painting rounds but the ranges and poses available are fantastic.

As to 2012 well the framework Im thinking of adopting is that my Imagination will remain as a constant on the table as will my Magnesia Ancient project.
January will be the free month to clear the table of outstanding work then each month I will focus on one particular project, my list! is being finalised.

As with all plans it most probably wont survive contact with the first wargames show!. But we will try.

Finally following some good sales at the local shows and my Sarmations fetching a handsome price on ebay I bought myself my Christmas Box

Why? Like many Zulu was in my blod since childhood and how could I resist this! Its just great.
My colleague Alan has written a set of rules for his 10mm collection for this battle and they work very well so why not in 28mm. Lets see.

Take Care everyone and All the best.


  1. A most Merry Christmas to you, sir. And a wonderful New Year filled with toys and memorable games.
