Most young boys (and some adventurous girls) play with Toy Soldiers; some never stop! I'm proud to say that I am one that never has stopped. Toy Soldiers, painting the figures, history and miniature wargaming is what this site is all about.
Here are some pictures of Warlord Game's Pike and Shotte Marksman. I
was originally going to do it as a "how to" or "work in progress" set of
postings but got so motivated painting I finished it too quickly!
Great figure to paint.
I'm going to paint a regiment of Newcastle's Whitecoats and decided that's where my marksman came from.
Very detailed and excellently sculptured made it a pleasure to paint.
I'm a retired Colonel of Infantry (Regulars by God!) who likes to play with toy soldiers. I've been married to the love of my life since 1986, I have 5 honorable sons (my geeks in training), 3 daughters-in-law, 2 dogs, and a gazillion miniatures.
Hobbies include . . . wait for it . . . Toy Soldiers, Reading,
Wargaming, Reading about Toy Soldiers, History, Reading about Wargaming, Gardening, Reading about History and Reading.
