About Me

A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

Broadside 2012; WIP: 30YW Foot, The Blue Regiments #3; A Secret Project

First up, it appears that the Milton Hundred Wargames Club have been let down by 2 of the 3 wargames mags that they had paid for advertising in. With only 2 weeks to go, various bloggers are doing what they can to spread the word by posting the details on their sites and now I'm joining them. I've posted the advert at the top of my left hand sidebar - click on it to go to the show's site.

I'm hoping to go on the 10th, if only to wind up Fran and Ray - Postie's Rejects are putting on their first ever game at a show, so it would be nice to give them some support..

WIP: 30YW Foot, the Blue Regiments

As you can see, they're coming together nicely. I should have them finished apart from basing tomorrow if all goes to plan.

Done Today:

  • Shoes, boots and gloves
  • Hair and beards
  • Hats
  • Leather bits
  • Musket stocks and pike/halberd shafts
  • Dry-brushed "apostles" and match-cord

Still To Do:

  • Collars
  • Cuffs
  • Hat feathers
  • Other decorative bits
  • Metal bits (sword hilts and pike tips)
  • Company Flags
  • Drums
  • Klear/Ink

Secret Project

I've ordered some figures today for a secret project which I'll be working on in between batches of 30YW figures. I won't be posting any photos until they're finished.


  1. Looking really nice Tamsin. So what is this secret project? You can tell me, I wont tell!!

  2. Well done Tamsim, see you there!!!

  3. Ooh, intruiged by the secret project

  4. Look forward to seeing you again.

  5. They're looking good Tamsin, do wish I was as productive as you.

  6. @Rodger - i could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you and the ensuing legal things would mean the project couldn't be completed.... ;)

    @ Fran, Ray & Lee - it all depends on how I feel on the 10th - hoping to make it down to see you guys.

    Hmmm, just remembered another secret project I had planned - wonder if I can get the figures in and painted in time? Nah, scratch that - I'll wait until I get another invite to Rejects HQ

    @ Phyllion - intrigue is always good

    @ Mecha Ace - I just wish they were coming along a bit quicker :(
