Not often I bookmark an article but this one seems to be very useful for people interested in the modern British army:

These are the ones I bought cheap a couple of years ago.
|Finally got round to looking at the last two units...|
|I haven't done anything other than go over paint loss so they are still pretty basic.|
Meanwhile, after a week or so of doing very little on the wargames front finally got some casting done - hopefully I'll manage a bit more over the next few days. I really need to get some of the 20mm Napoleonics done!

As well as the Assyrians at the head of this blog I had the beginnings of a Lamming Egyptian army. Although I have posted about them before it was a few years ago and I didn't do them as a Review.
|Though one reason for this is that it is quite a small army...|
|Have to admit I liked the ground effect on the bases of some of these.|
|This shows the difference between the early Lamming spearman and the later one with separate spears and shields.|
|Size-wise the army looks a lot bigger if I include a unit of the spearmen that I had designed (these are the ones that were supposed to be compatible with Garrison 20mm!)|

In the sense that all of Steven's things have now been moved!
| Area cleared...|
On the one hand, this is a wargaming activity, on the other hand that isn't the main objective...
This is something I should have done months ago - the moulds had been scattered all over the shed and were really inaccessible. So I've taken down my old wargames table and everything is now together again.
'Real' reason for doing this? My son left a lot of stuff behind when he left home and even though he's had his own place for a couple of years now still no sign of him taking his stuff back. Meanwhile, where it was being stored was in the way - so now I'm clearing the space so it can be stored in the shed!

Still not getting anything done as far as figures go simply because other things have taken over - some work outside when weather OK, started sorting out the 'original' shed (which means getting all my moulds sorted at last!) and have started picking up tuition sessions.
However, one wargames update - two new moulds have arrived.
|This one is the one of most immediate interest - early Persian cavalry, a headswap from the robed Guard cavalry archer. I've also included a couple of things of use in pulp gaming...|
|This one is for more long term interest - Libyans, Hollywood Philistines, couple of Ethiopians and some Persians. This mould should be seeing a lot of long term use if only because Libyan armies need a lot of figures!|
The hope is that I might (?) get some casting done this weekend.
