Vanquish '17

Well, I made it to Vanquish and here's the obligatory loot photo:

The envelope in the lower centre is my pre-order from Newline, and the box at the top was a spur-of-the-moment 10mm Anglo-Zulu war purchase ...

I did sell my Parthians on the bring'n'buy - because I put the wrong price on them ... the Sumerians didn't sell as there were fewer figures for a higher price ... d'oh!!

Changing Size

As I've decided to go to Vanquish this weekend, I have made the decision to change the size of some of my figures.

I'm taking my 6mm Sumerians & Parthians to the bring & buy there & taking advantage of Newline Designs show offer to get the same armies in 10mm.

As I have a bunch of 10mm fantasy stuff they'll then be compatible with that, along with the addition of a few monsters, Wizards, etc.

That's the cunning plan anyway!

Legionary '17

Legionary is the annual Exeter area wargames convention and as my brother was putting on a display game this year, I dragged my sorry arse out of bed on Saturday morning and made the 2hr drive to see it ...
It had a couple of competitions - I forget what games - and in the pic above you can see one of them going.

Mr brother's game was Warzone : Resurrection (IIRC!) and here are some pics of it




And finally the obligatory loot photo (the box of books was from the bring'n'buy & was £5 for the whole box!):

This week, I am mostly ...

... painting the bases of my fantasy naval ships ....



I am also planning using my Turkmenisatnia stuff to playtest some new rules I've been given which are for the Russians in Afghanistan. Probably the best named rules I've ever seen, they are called 'Hind and Seek' and seem really good. I am really looking forward to trying them out and actually playing something!

Insure your figures!

Back in this post in September last year, I rambled on about insuring wargames figures and the need to catalogue them to do that ...

Anyway, although I can't remember how I found it, this site now exists on the interweb:
Wargamer Collection Calculator
A free site to record your wargames collection. It seems to cater for only land warfare at present - no scales for aerial/naval/space gaming ...

That shouldn't in anyway detract from a hobbyist produced free site - IMO

Did I mention it was free?
