Welcome to my wargaming blog, I'm Dave and live in Morpeth, Northumberland in the UK. This may or may not be a regular thing, we'll just have to see how it goes. I am a painter/collector of figures first and a wargamer second. My thrill in this great hobby of ours is to place that final well researched & painted unit into the cabinet. The actual gaming with the figures is an important but secondary experience, we all like to win, but it isn't the be all and end all of it, being with good friends and having fun is. Hope you will enjoy reading this blog as much as I will writing in it. Just to remind the visitor to scroll down the various pages and click on 'older posts' to see more. Dave.
10mm English and French War of the Spanish Succession
Maybe just a couple of pics tonight, I'm full of enthusiasm for this blog, but like diarys one always starts with the best intentions! I intend to post about once every couple of weeks, but initially I'll get a few pictures of my 10mm WSS stuff them 10mm Cesarian Roman. After that who knows there is plenty to go at. Believe me after 29 years of painting and collecting there's a fair bit of lead about!
Anyhow here's a few pics of English for the Blenheim scenario:
Front to back: 2 Squadrons of Lumley's, 2 of Schomberg. One stand per squadron.
Front left: 1 Squad Lumley, Right: 1 Squad Cadogans, front line: 2 Squads Woods, 2 Squads Wyndham.
Front to back: Marlborough's (24th), Rowe's Scots Fusiliers (21st) Pendraken figs, 1st Foot Guards, Hessen Kassel, Erbprinz.
Front to back: Ferguson's (26th The Cameronians), Ingoldsby's (23rd), Howe's (15th), Hessen Kassel Leibregiment.
Front to back, Hamilton's, Orkney's 2nd, Derby's, and North & Gray.
Finally some of Blood's artillery:
The vast majority are Old Glory, pics arn't the best as they were taken a while ago but they will do. I'll talk about the basing decisions when I have more time. Maybe get the French on tomorrow.
Off to the Border Reiver club now, I'm taking 1:2400 WW2 ships tonight so I'll put the life jacket on!
