Vendel Miniatures - Parthian Horse Archers

I have just placed up a few images of Vendel Miniatures great new Parthian Horse Archers. The figures are supplied four figures to a pack and come in four different poses. One figure is reaching for another arrow, another notching the arrow, a third figures is drawing the bow and firing and the last figure has just released an arrow. All the casting are beautifully designed. However they are on the small side and closer to the true 25mm then the main Vendel range of 30mm figures. They would not really fit in with the old range. But with only a small number of manufactures designing Parthians these guys are definitely up there with the best of them. Plus with more figures on the way from Vendel I would have to say that I might have to hit the credit card again after Christmas. The figures have been painted by Leroy Simpson and based by me.

A weekend at Peter Morbey's - 2006

Peter and Myself just outside the gaming room (2006)
I was going through some boxes just the other day and I found a few old disks. I was nearly going to throw them in the trash but thought I'd better have a look on them first. Found a gold mine of old photos from when I went over to the UK for a trip with the Army. One of the most notable moments of the trip was spending the weekend with Peter Morbey (of Elite Miniatures UK). It was a fine weekend of looking over the new ranges he was working on, checking out his fine collection of figures and playing a game on his table - great weekend. Anyway I thought it would be rude to share this time with myself - so I have placed up a few images from the game and Peter's collection.
