Welcome

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.

Vendee leaders




Thought I would put up a few pictures of Vendee leaders off the web, truthfully I've just figured out how to do this or I would have been including this sort of thing on here before. Like I said I'm learning as I go!

Henri de La Rochejaquelein, leader of the
revolt in the Vendee
Royalist officer Francois de Charette. After a long guerilla campaign Charette was shot in Nantes after a perfunctory trial, refusing a blindfold and giving the orders to his own firing squad.
