Bryan Ansell has passed away.

I just heard that Bryan passed away this morning. So many stories to tell and now gone like the fleeting mists of time. So sad. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side. RIP Bryan. I'll raise a glass for you shortly. He joins his father, Cliff, who passed in 2019.

The tribute from Diane's Facebook age.

A poor pic of me, Bryan and Tony at BOYL a few years back. Bryan and the family made me feel so welcome that my usual anxiety issues could disappear for the weekend.

Bryan back in the day (1979) looking through the figure trays...

I'm sure there will be many tributes to him and I'll post links when I find them. 

RIP Bryan.

Merry Christmas one & all!


Slightly belated as I was hit, once again, by man flu over the last two days.

Let's Get Napoleon!

Shameless promotion for the Kickstarter for my new range of 'Napoleoniques'. A set of 28mm miniatures sculpted by Martin Buck. Pete Brown has already produced the master molds so I'm now trying to raise funding for the production molds and, hopefully, to finance expanding the range. They're a great tongue-in-cheek bunch for skirmish games such as The Silver Bayonet etc.

I've started painting a set but I am well known as one of the slowest painters around...

Comparison with a Flintloque Orc and a Front Rank mini.

Please give the Kickstarter a look and let me know what you think...

Scale ruler to show the size...

If you haven't played this then it is proving very popular...

Managed to get one painted...
