Maidstone Wargames Society Open Day 2017



My local club, the Maidstone Wargames Society, will be having its annual open day this Saturday.  There will a number of games being played - so come along if you're in the area.

You can find more information on their website.

Disappeared again?

If you've been kind enough to wonder about the lack of posts recently, there's a simple explanation...

...a bad case of modeller's thumb!


Fortunately I have had a dressing off for a little while and it's healed well but I couldn't hold anything with it - so I am really behind on my various projects.

Things are getting back on track now so I'm hoping to add a few posts in the next couple of weeks with various progress made.

Salute 2017

I know this post is a little late and rather short on photos (may I direct you to Big Lee's, as always, excellent coverage here). Along with a large chunk of the UK wargaming community I went along to the South London Warlord's annual show at ExCeL in London on Saturday. I arrived somewhat later than usual at 10:15 but it still took me 20 minutes in the queue to get into the hall. As usual I had pre-ordered enough stuff to ensure the visit was worthwhile in terms of postage savings and after having picked those up went for a tour round. The morning was mostly taken up with catching up with various groups of gaming friends and then it was time for the annual blogger meet up with th usual suspects. After that I had a proper look at the traders and games. Whilst there were some nice games on display (and a few rather disappointing ones) I think I may be getting a little jaded as I wasn't as inspired as I used to be. Even so it was worth going and here is the obligatory loot shot (which may give some clues as to my upcoming projects):

Ronin - Putting it all together for the first game

So after all the recent posts showing the build up, I thought I would post a few pictures of the first game.  Along with the figures and buildings you will see the 4Ground fence packs and carts too:

The figures are from North Star, they were painted by Roger and based by me.
