These fine chaps have been available for almost a year but I never got round to putting them in the shop! My fault completely. I had it in my mind to paint them first but that deadline slipped away again and again.
Anyway, we have sold a few dozen packs on request over the time period but I apologize for keeping them from you for so long.

One great thing about the internet is is brings people who would never even know the existence of each other, together. Over the last couple of weeks I have received some wonderful examples of painting from enthusiasts and friends of the blog...

I had this idea in my head to build a centre piece for the Ottoman wagonburg. I wanted a something practical but distinctive and I gained a lot of valuable experience arsing around with the twelve defensive pieces built for the wagonburg circumference.

The new Great Northern War supplement for Beneath the Lily Banners 3rd edition is called
With Talon and Claw
The reason? Eagles and lions with their talons and claws appear in almost all of the arms of the combatant nations of the Great Northern and Eastern Wars - Swedes, Danes, Saxons, Prussians, Poles, Imperialists and...
Well, it was a thought that had been floating around my head for a while. I had some vague ideas about how I might scratch build a defend-able 'wagon barrier' but had never gone practical with it.
No time like the present - about a month or so till Partizan so nothing like a little pressure to focus the mind.
How many? (it was a question to self).. four? six?... how about twelve? OK. That's settled,...

I have not been blogging with regularity over the last three weeks simply because I have snatched every waking hour to finish off the last photos for the new GNW supplement for Beneath the Lily Banners.

|An Osprey style compilation of Kuruc forces on the march mixing phases of its existence|
The by ways of the late 17th century and early 18th provide magnificently juicy brain food for wargamers. Although I had in passing, read about the Kuruc Rebellion in Hungary during the first decade of the 18th century I had gone no further than a quick skim of what it was all about.
During the compilation of...

Where have I been? Good question. The last fifteen days see me two thirds through a three-weeker from Los Angeles via Chicago and New York to find myself in the more sedate and old world ambience of Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge (not MA,USA rather...shire, England) by Sunday. Almost all work and no play but I managed to squeeze a...
