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.
A momentous occasion as Phase 3 of the English Civil War project is complete. I now have 14 regiments of foot complete and mounted for Victory Without Quarter.
I had originally purchased 4 boxes of Warlord Games plastic English Civil War infantry. They come with a wide variety of headgear but I ran out of helmets as I wanted the majority of my pike men to wear. Fortunately Warlord Games sells extra head gear and I purchased a packet of 4 which came with a bonus wide bream hat! I soon discovered that the helmets and hat did not quite fit which is easily solved by carefully slicing the top of the heads off!
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.
