You'll recall I mentioned the plan for a game using 54mm toys in this earlier post. I can now confirm that the details are as follows:
The date for the Waterloo game is confirmed as:
12th September 2015
Location - Central London - Green Park tube
Timings - 1000hrs - 1815hrs
Lunch + tea - to be provided at cost (approx £15 including wine)
More news as it breaks will be reported both here and on the Funny Little Wars Yahoo Group!
And now for something not entirely unrelated....

It is always encouraging to be reminded that people actually read my ramblings. One such reader is Col of the very splendid Col's tanks blog. Noticing what some others have suggested is my 'addiction' to Solido die-casts, Col mentioned that he had a surplus M-41 SP gun. "Would I like it for my Little Cold Wars project?" He asked. An arrangement was soon made and the thing arrived from Australia a few days ago.
Here it is - a lovely model with the bonus of a firing gun! British readers may be
more familiar with the bigger and only slightly less pleasing Dinky version of the M-41.
And here is a real one. It's not as nice, is it?
So thanks again to Col!
