After months away, I am finally back! A laptop meltdown forcing its replacement was necessary and I also had to get to grips with Windows 8.1, I know, I know, we are now up to Windows 10 always was behind the times.

So what has been happening since my last update?

Still working on the 28mm English Civil War Project, though it has taken a back seat recently as I have discovered the joys of 6mm!

 A 6mm US town laid out on the war gaming table. The back scene is a N Gauge model railway item.
Union and Confederate forces clash.
There will be much more on this new scale in the coming months/years. Do I need to change the name of my blog? Oh Dear, should have thought of that when I first started. However, I also have another 28mm project just beginning after being presented with a gift of some War of the Roses figures. Three boxes of plastic and some gorgeous Perry metals.

Such beautiful sculpts demand to be expertly painted, unfortunately, it will be me painting them so no chance of that then!
Lord Wenlock in pensive mood and a cocksure Lord Somerset giving it loads.
So you will also be seeing more of these too. The war gaming table, formerly 8 x 3 feet has had a one foot fold down flap extension to one of its long sides added giving me 8 x 4 feet, also took the opportunity to add castors to the legs, all in all much better. Especially for 28mm games.
So a brief update and the reasons for no recent updates. I also could not seem to access the blog either for some odd reason, but all seems sorted now. Updates should now once again come thick and fast.


  1. Ahhh... you have found that missing page. Awesome. Glad yer back Ian. Oh... and as far as "behind the times", I myself am still trudging along with Windows 8.s :()

    Looking forward to more on the Blog. Great pics so far.


    1. Thanks Kurtus, I have no idea why I couldn't find the blog, but now that I have, I shall continue to update more regularly.

  2. Can't believe this town is 6mm! Awesome picture!

    1. Thank you very much Phil, I will include some more photos of the 6mm buildings in my next blog...Ian
