They Arrived!! And I Couldn't help Myself So I......

Made some of them up at 5am this morning!! :>)

They are fab, very little by way of flash if any, small amount of filing to be done and you're ready to undercoat!

What's more, I bought three boxes which combined with the Perry plastic boxes and metals that I already own will last me a very long time and spread all across my Wars of the Roses, Burgundian, Italian League of Venice and (Early) Italian Wars French!! Can't lose really.

The free vignette is a fantastic rendition of a knight arming and reminds me very much of the vignette they did for Foundry many moons ago.

I took some very quick and very bad snaps below but will be taking some good ones with my camera later which I'll post here and on my Gewalthaufen Late 15thC Medieval Blog too.

Victorian Steel Colonial Rules


I've just received my copy of the Grimsby Wargames Society's Victorian Steel Rules for the Colonial period.

I haven't yet had a chance to read right through them, too busy painting today, but as soon as I do I will do a full review and post it here.

What I can say is that the rules are nicely laid out and from the three pages i read are very clear and concise. They are designed for quick play, which is a bonus IMHO as I hate getting stuck in the minutia of some rules systems.

The Grimsby Chaps also run a great forum HERE! It is designed to support the rules and supplements that they have planned and indeed I have heard straight from the horses mouth that some are in the process of being written as I type so you need not worry about the rules not being supported.

Here's a couple of pics:

And a few from an Indian Mutiny Game they were running at the Durham Show in June:
