Who we are

Just in case you wonder who we are I've added a pic.

John, Graham, Paul and Dave

I forgot to add that the flags carried by my new Russians are from the Warflag site, total cost £0, so these guys have come cheap. It is a great site though and is ideal for those of us who cannot afford the more expensive (although beautiful) flags on the market.

And yes I am aware they are 1797 pattern! I just liked the colours!
A few notes on the photos that Paul has just posted.
Top photo shows the Wolframsdorff Cuirassiers painted by myself.
These are Front Rank figures and are probably the best Spanish Succession range on the
market. I will be adding another 3 figures to the regiment, including a trumpeter, and also
providing a standard for the ensign.

Middle photo shows Prussian Dragoons intheir brave (suicidal?) charge against French cuirassiers. All the cavalry are Elite Miniatures in my collection, painted by Graham.
The Austrians loitering in the background are Front Rank figures, again painted by Graham,
but this time for his own collection.

The bottom photo shows a recent purchase for my collection. These are part of 10 battalions which I bought from Reinforcements By Post. They are Old Glory 2nd edition and blend in nicely with our Front Rank and Elite stuff. These were an absolute bargain, not only are they very nicely painted but they cost about £1.30 each including the cost of the figure, the painting and the postage from Bangladesh! I could not be happier with them.

Just a selection of recent games and some of our talented members skills at daubing colour onto metals :)
