Aerial view of “IT”

Old School Wargaming (as seen in Facebook). Quite charming and anything pre-WWI has my endorsement in the Toy Soldier field. As you know 1900 is an special limit for me. I am quite a realist and read my papers and watch CNN etc everyday… but everyday real life has nothing to do with my hobby. You can call me Post-romantic but I have my feet on the floor nevertheless. Found those schematic buildings part of the charm of it.

Sometimes something seen in Facebook catches your eye!

I used to play Cowboys and Indians when a child… (reenactment today is called)… well… I guess Nostalgia is a great sentiment… I do not have Indians and Cowboys in my Toy Soldier Collection… but I have some 6mm frontier scouts… no Indians because i never build the opposition nowadays… you need all sorts you know! Charming pic!

Poor chaps… their time had passed… they ended in an epic manner… but nevertheless 1805 was ten years away…

It is a curious thing (since I started this web page or Blog or whatever) that my obsession for thirty years (yes it was the Waterloo battle) reflected in the post MINIFIGS, Napoleon or Waterloo… is one with the less hits of all the manifold… strange I thought it would be popular… maybe its overexposed and overknown… well… it still surprises me… the time and energy I spent painting those hundreds of Anglo-Allied, French and Prussians WAS FUN!… so no complains at all… it simply puzzles me.

Seen in Facebook seconds ago…

Telegraph station as seen in Facebook…

Unusual model full of charm. Kingcast Royal Engineers I believe. Maybe in the limits of my period of addiction to Toy Soldiers… Excellent collection!

Now for those interested I must inform that the moulds have been bought by REPLICA (Andrew Stevens) and he says they would be available again at the end of the year 2022. Cheers!

Steadfast set… I have asked for the nurses (both) and the Medical officer (fourth from the left)

My armies have no casualties, sorry about that… for me Toy Soldiers never die… and of course I found annoying the idea of wounded and streach-bearers… I am particular about that. So there you have it an on purpose incomplete set.

A-Hunting we will go…

Not Toy Soldiers, thank you I know…but very cute figures…

Incidentally the RCMP on the HEAD PICTURE represents police officer’s NOT soldiers (as it has been said to me millions of times)… but the first ever figure I got was a “mountie”… and that’s that!
