- Black Smoke
- 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!!

Would the real Yorktown please stand up!
Well, after visiting Jamieson's Models it seems that Yorktown is, in fact, harder to find than hens teeth! So, I picked up a model of Hornet instead. Not perfect, but who cares, really? It's a big Yankee carrier to sit on a wargames table. I will probably paint it up in the colours of Yorktown for the game and then repaint as the Hornet if it's good enough to put on display. I must confess, though, I'm really enjoying building the model. Brings back lots of memories of building kits as a kid. I recall my ceiling was almost completely hidden behind a veritable armada of model planes hanging from it!
