It's Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to everyone.

I've had some interesting presents this year that will certainly get me started in the new year.

I got several boxes of Warlord plastic ECW figures, so one of my projects for 2010 will be the army of the Western Association commanded by who else but Sir William Waller. But before putting brush to figures I'll have to catch up on the period, since it must be 30 years since I last painted any ECW figures. It'll also be a shock painting 28mm figures in bulk.

Otherwise I've got some interesting reading
  • D Day by Robert Kershaw
  • Lost Battles by Phil Sabin
  • Infantry Tactics (a combination volume from Osprey) just as well I hadn't got around to reading any of the individual titles
  • and Donald Featherstones War Games, the book that started off my interest in wargaming, I must have had it on permanent loan from the library in my early years.

Merry Christmas Will.

Lost Battles is an interesting but slightly 'heavy' read. Worth persisting though!

Have a good one!

What was your impression of the Warlord ECW figures? I'm working on a review of them now - I'm having mixed feelings about them, although I'm glad to see more plastics on the field.
