Seasonal greetings and witterings.



Just a quick post to say Merry Christmas! and a Happy New Year! to all the followers and of course the 'tooters' of  'Grand Scale wargaming' and thank you for being bothered to read my posts, musings and witterings about war gaming using the 6mm and 10mm scales, and the occasional 28mm post. And its with the latter in mind Ive decided (I KNOW I said I wouldn't )to start a Blog just for my 28mm stuff,  just to stop the scales and projects getting muddled, heres the link to my 28mm Blog for those who wish to have a toot:-

I'm not sure how often posts will be but I really am enjoying putting the army together and have decided to try and make it an all plastic army. My main 10mm project for the start of the year is to complete my Medieval Scots , hopefully farther Christmas is bringing  some more :-) 

 As for the Blogging scene (and Ive said it every year) but it really is good to see so many good wargaming and painting Blogs out there. To read something fresh every few days about this wonderful past time in its various scales is great. Ive really enjoyed the past few years being part of the  Wargaming Blogging community,so once again thank you to all fellow bloggers for re sparking interest when it sometimes wanes. Heres to many more years :-)

Free Flag Downloads.

Now I know there are many sites out here doing some really nice free downloadable flags and banners but here's one I've missed. I took a look this lunch time and WOW!! these are really nice they are on the Grimsby Wargames Society web page. So hats off to them for 10mm they will need a little resizing me thinks but that shouldn't be to hard to do. Here's the link for anyone who hasn't already been there(apologies if this is old news).

6mm WMA Battle Report.

One of the people who is really trying to publicise  gaming in the grandscale of Warmaster Ancients  is Justin Taylor of VVV transfers. He is currently running practise and intro games at his local wargames shop/club, and is also organising WMA tournenments in the new year. He's just posted up an AAR if one fo the practise games so for your viewing pleasure click here and show some support :-) He will hopefully be linking in with Hail Caesar at some point? due to the rules being readily available:-)

Liebster Award. hmm?



Now then I have kindly been nominated for a Liebster Award by 'Rothgars Workbench' thank you.Here is the link to his Blog for those who have not seen  it:-

http://rothgarwb.blogspot.co.uk/

So I believe I've now got to:-
1 - Show thanks to the Blogger
2 - List my top five Blogs
3 - Post the award on my Blog
4 - Enjoy support from other Bloggers
5 - Have fun and spread the karma

Hmm? not sure if its a bit chain letter'ish. Which I do not do (as it were), but my assumption is this way the Blog with the most links wins?

So here are my top five Blogs:-
1-http://yorkie.6sided.net/
2-http://dalauppror.blogspot.co.uk/
3-http://stuartsworkbench.blogspot.co.uk/
4-http://harness-and-array.blogspot.co.uk/
5-http://onelover-ray.blogspot.co.uk/

Well that's that good luck to all.

10mm Scenic eye candy.

Whilst trawling the web recently Ive come across several photos of 10mm games and scenery that reminds me why its the best scale to game in, In 10mm  on a 6'x4' table you can fit in a whole landscape filled with scenic eye candy which isn't possible with clumsy 28's:-) Here's some of the photos I've come across to prove the point.




I also spotted this painted fig on the TB Line Blog..Stunning!! well done that man.
