Little Wars and Big Toys

The 54mm toys (well some of them) had an outing recently at the Sheffield club.  Steve's Svenhasselsteiners were opposed by some of Martin's Vulgarian Army, the latter assisted by most of my Naval Brigade.  Above is one of my battalions rushing forward enthusiastically to engage the enemy.

 More photos of this game coming soon!

Tim good to see you back at F.L.W. Personally I haven't lifted a paintbrush to my guys in over 2 months. This will inspire me ... Jeff

I hadn't done any for ages until the recent batch of Tratvians. I really must crack on with them.

They certainly seemed to enjoy a run about!

I always think that a nicely polished wooden floor adds tone to a game :O)

The floor has just had a new coat of varnish! I wanted it painted blue for naval games...
