Seasons Greetings & a caption contest.

Christmas caption contest, what have these fine dandies spotted?
No prizes just some fun. leave a few witty lines and call back.

This Austro Hungarian Insurrection hussar general is as close to posting a Santa shot as I will go.

Eagle eyed readers will note that the horses are asleep - Napoleonic Austrians!

Front Rank models painted by Tony Laughton for Chris who based them so nicely.
This has been an excellent year for our wargaming life in my view. We have just wrapped up our Eggmuhl refight, the pictures are all edited and loaded, once I write some words you will have it on your desktops in January.

Our Christmas game will be a DUST Warfare dust-up of Tony's devising so heaven knows what madness this will demand of us!

We have some big plans for big games and a mountain of newly painted toys arriving over the next twelve months - it'll all be right here for you in glorious colour...

Here's to 2015 and an amazing Christmas to you all!

Love and best wishes



  1. This command stand is gorgeous! And Merry Christmas!

  2. "Oh, I say! Is that ol' von Bauchschmerzen? We fought together back during all of that business in 1762."

    No idea of funny caption though as my brains like a pound of mince.

  5. Lovely figures - festively attired!
