first post

this is the first post on my new blog so i will give you a bit of background about what i am working on at any particular time
i have a variety of interests but an overriding theme has been the franco-prussian war of 1870-71 which i have had a fascination with since seeing the figures of alan and michael Perry now produced by Foundry when i was about 12 years old. since then i have developed other waragming interests ranging from ancient rome to WW2 via the ECW, AWI, ACW etc. My wargaming introduction came, like a lot of people of my generation, from Games Workshop and Citadel Miniatures in the 1980s and whilst this may be sacriligous to many die hard historical gamers it certainly allowed me to develop an interest in miniature gaming that i certainly wouldnt have been able to get into otherwise. Nowadays i own virtually no fantasy figures having moved virtually completely to historical gaming, but i still hold an interest in the rich background of both GWs warhammer and 40k worlds.
i mainly game with 28mm miniatures but also have a fair collection of 15mm figures and have recently made a slight foray into 6mm napoleonics. mainly i prefer 28mm figures as i usually end up doing more painting than gaming and enjoy the visual character of 28mm figures particularly those produced by my favourite sculpters such as the Perry twins. Over time you will be able to see my work as it is produced, and please feel free to comment
