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.

Mucking around

I know, I'm buggering about with the layout and colouring of the site. I think the black background allows people to see the writing better, (any constructive comments welcome) I should know I seem to need the specs more and more these days.
I now paint using an angled light/magnifying glass combination which of course means all my brushes need to be cut shorter so that the end doesn't knock against the glass. It takes a bit of getting used to, working under the magnifying glass (you have a job gauging the depth & distance) but for all you chaps like me, of a certain age I would highly recommend this system . After all no matter how good you are you can only paint what you can see!
