So What Is Approaching?

When I stopped blogging last year I began to either box up my old figures or sell them off. I had a lot of figures and the family needed the extra storage space. I have sold off a great weight of painted and unpainted lead. All those Airfix figures are gone as well. The family have a lot of attic space but what was left for me?

In 2012 I started to collect the rather charming 20mm WW1 figures from Tumbling Dice. Fortunately they were not disposed of and as 2014 marks the centenary of the conflict I cannot think of a better place to pick back up on the hobby. I have painted a few more German infantry and just need to finish the bases before I photograph them.

I have settled on the "Crush the Kaiser" rule set ( a couple of solo runs with unpainted figures has already produced enjoyable results). So it is back to the painting table and try and remember the colours I used when I started.


  1. Delighted to see you back, Matt - excellent. Tried to join up (volunteer?) but Google wasn't having it - maybe Google shows good taste in my case, but will try later.

  2. Thanks! Quite exciting to be back actually.

    Yes, Google sign up does not seem to work. I now have to go to my Blogger Dashboard and use the "add link" under the "reading list" banner.

  3. Good to see you back blogging! I bought some Tumbling Dice 200 ECW a few years ago. They were very nice.

    I hate Google plus for following and use the old style one instead - under Add a Gadget then "more gadgets" and then scroll right to the bottom and the old style one if there

    1. It's good to be back and thanks for the tip - all changed!

  4. Glad to see you back - Waterloo to mons was a great blog so I very much look forward to seeing more!
