Classical Greek Hoplites - 1st Corps

These wonderfully painted 1st Corps Hoplites came out onto the market over ten years ago and a bit more I think and they still stand up well to the test of time. Painted by our local painter Leroy Simpson (about ten years ago) and only recently rebased for Impetvs they still look fantastic. Leroy even hand painted the shields....champion. So on show today are three units of Hoplites ready for battle. 

Please enjoy

ECW Scottish Cavalry

I would have to admit Warlord Games have produced some fantastic ranges over the years, however, I am a little disappointed they have started to drift from historical to fantasy and science fiction. But if you want to keep a business growing you have to branch out. Anyway back to these very nicely painted Scottish Cavalry from Warlord Games, which have been painted by the very talented Leroy Simpson and based for Baroque. Leroy has done another outstanding job on these lads and I can not wait to see them on the table cleaning up the flank of a Royalist pike block.

Our Second Battle of Tel-el-Kebir 1882

Our second great battle for the Christmas break was the replay of the Battle of Tel-el-Kebir in 1882. We had played this particular battle a couple of years ago but since out armies had grown we decided to play it again. I will write up an after action report sometime after New Years so until then please enjoy the images.

All the best
