A little bit of Claymore 2022

 I got to Claymore OK despite the large car park being almost completely full within 30 minutes of the show opening.

I took a few photographs of one or two games but my camera is not talking to my PC as well as it should so I only have a couple of photographs to show just now.

My main purchase was paint c/o Colonel Bill.

My 'shiny' purchase was some dragoons in bicornes by Eagle Figures.

I spoke to a million and one people and still didn't catch everyone I wanted to.

Next show will be in Gateshead in September.


Apologies to everyone commenting. I am unable to convince Blogger/Google that I am myself so am unable to reply to your comments. As usual I have no handy teenagers about.


I seem to have fudged my ability to reply to posts.

I think I set up myself as 'anonymous', then tell it who I am and it seems to work.

 A current commission.

A selection of ladies and gentlemen from Minden and Crann Tara.

Be honest.

Black and White/Sepia Paint Scheme

 A friend recently asked about Black and White or Sepia Paint Schemes.

I suggested a Grey/Lighter Grey/Brown Ink scheme.

So I tried it for myself.

I'm not sure it has reached a satisfactory level.

I would maybe now try a combination of browns/buffs/linen/bone colours.

Bankton House

 This is a scratch built Bankton House (many years ago) that I made for a club demo.

It is a mix of bookbinders board, cereal packet cardboard, plaster and paint.

How did I do?

18th Century Coach

 As part of a recent commission I have built and painted an 18th Century coach made by Westfalia Forge but retailed by Crann Tara.

Its a beast of  a model to construct but most competent modellers will manage.

Apologies for all the background clutter. I really must get a lit photobooth for my picture posts. (Hmm, I have an upcoming birthday).
