About Me

My photo
I'm a bit of a born-again wargamer! I played many of the Games Workshop games when I was in my teens and early twenties, but left the hobby behind when I went to University. Over the last few years I have gradually got back into it and am literally having a ball! I'll play pretty much anything now, ranging from ancient historical to the far future! I think that I get more out of the painting side of things than actually playing, but that might just be because I get more opportunity. Hence the title...this blog is all about the colour of war!!

Oooh, shiny!

I have to admit that I'm a bit subject to the 'oooh, shiny' syndrome and this post is testament to that. I do still intend to grind on with painting the Romans and Seleucids, but I realised a week or so ago that I really need a good idea of an OOB or particular force to maintain momentum. I just don't have that with the ancients at the moment. I guess the best idea would be to work out what I need for the basic starter FOG army, but it'll be a while before I get both sides completed. In the meantime, I've decided to dust off the 6mm Napoleonics and get them finished so that Carl, James and I can do a refight of Corunna when we're off over Christmas. Well...they've only been sitting in my cupboard for about a year and a half!! But, before I get totally involved with that, though, I needed to finish off the Full Thrust fleet which was actually quite enjoyable despite my general dislike of painting vehicles. So here's a few shots of them before they get their first outing at the club on Tuesday. Naturally the fresh paint will be a laser magnet and I fully expect them to be space debris before too long! :)
