News, Updates & ramblings

This Blog is acting as the news and updates page for my new website,

The website itself is the archive of my painting through the last decade or more, with easy navigation around what now amounts to over 3000 images of wargames figures & display miniatures.

It is also the repository for my musings, workbench notes and reports on all things gaming and miniature painting that I get up to.

I've been collecting miniatures for 24 years and have covered most scales, periods and styles in that time. Don't expect consistency on one project here - there will be variety in project, but hopefully consistently high standards!

Thanks for reading!

6mm soviets

I'm still playing with setting up the galleries & I'm not sure its woth the effort of doing it all by hand when (hopefully) come the end of March I'll get an automated system in place.

In the mean time, here's one of my more recent painting projects - 6mm Soviet infantry from GHQ. This is one of 9 infantry companies I've painted so far, each consisting 6 rifle, 2HMG and 2 Support Mortar units, based for use with BKC.

As a side note, they're currently on ebay.. not pimping them or anything... but here's a LINK to my Sales anyway... ;o)

External test page up

I've been sorting out the best way to structure the galleries. They're going to take a long time to fill up, but they will contain thousands of photos when I'm through with it all, so they need to be robust.

Currently I'm looking at a 3 or 4 tiered system:

Genre (main menu selection) --click--> scales (Page of options) --click--> Page of armies & groups --click--> Gallery Page --click--> enlarge any given picture

Does that make sense?

Test page showing more accurate layout can be found HERE

Let me know what you think!

Everything is so shiny...

New website, new Blog... I'm at risk of being left feeling distinctly out-of-date myself!

I need this in my website.. so lets see how that bit works...
