- 30 July 2004 - I
have finally added a new unit to my French army - the Regiment
de la Reine. This unit is made up of figures produced by the
French company Capitulation.
Take a look to see some great pictures of their wonderfully character-filled
- 2 July 2004 - I
haven't done anything with my 18th century wargmes figures for
a while, having been more involved in painting my Napoleonics.
Also, feast your eyes on this new link - a fabulous 18th century
reenacting site called Age
- 30 December 2003
- a major site overhaul! Having finally borrowed a decent digital
camera, I have replaced most of the photos on this site with pictures
of much better quality. I'm still experimenting with taking photos
of miniatures, so the results are far from perfect. But they are
still much superior to the images that I have had on this site
up till now.
- 6 December 2003
- the website of my favourite manufacturer is soon to go live.
Front Rank Figurines
show photos of every one of their figures, some beautifully painted
and some in undercoat to show off their amazing detail.
- 4 August 2003 -
Very exciting news for enthusiasts of the 18th Century period.
A French company is planning a range of 30mm War of the Austrian
Succession figures. See photos of some of the first masters on
Fusiliers Historic Gaming Club website.
- 17 July 2003 - the
wargames club I belong to has just launched a new site, the Kapiti
Fusiliers Historic Gaming Club. You'll find an interesting
range of pictures and articles, so do drop in and see us.
- 20 November 2002
- I know this is a bit off-topic, but a
few months ago I was commissioned to paint a Napoleonic Portuguese
army for the Miniature Service Center in California. You can now
see pictures of the figures I have finished so far on the MSC
- 29 June 2002 - I've put together a new "front end"
page to combine all my various wargaming sites. This new page
is in the form of a virtual wargaming display cabinet! Take a
look at it here.
- 13 June 2002 - I've added a link to a new 18th century miniatures
website, called Tricorne.
It features the magnificently painted armies of Eric Veitl from
Paris. His handpainted flags are truly exquisite. I'm personally
quite proud of Tricorne, as I was the site designer!
- 24 February 2002 - I now have a small collection of military
history and wargaming websites that you might wish to visit. Just

- 17 August 2001 - there's been nothing new on this site for over
a month now. I feel I have nearly completed my 18th-century French
army, so am now about to commence a new project. I was recently
given several battalions of 25mm French Napoleonic figures made
by the company Hotspur, now obsolete. I've decided to paint
them as a Confederation of the Rhine army. This means I'll have
lots of colourful units from the tiny German duchies and principalities
that fought with Napoleon. I know next to nothing about Napoleonics,
so would appreciate any advice I can get (especially about Confederation
flags and uniforms). I also hope to once again accompany the new
army with a website, so watch out here for news of further developments!
July 2001 - Another exciting new link on the Links
Régiments du Passé - a reenactment group that
portrays the 18th century Royal-Ecossais Regiment, as well as
the FitzJames Cavalry and the Royal Artillery. The photos on the
site are simply superb - (some are even taken at the palace of
- 14 June 2001 - due to technical reasons, I've changed the way

board, this site is now linked to my Friday Night Fusiliers YahooGroup.
There you'll be able to participate in discussions, download and
upload files, and share links. Why not drop in and visit
June 2001 - as this French Seven Years War army draws near to
completion, I've begun thinking about my next project. I've decided
to work on another French army, but this one from a slightly later
period - the American War of Independence. I've already bought
my first unit, Old Glory's Lauzun's Legion (you can see one of
these hussars in the background of this painting of Rochambeau
