The first miniature after Crisis 19

So back to normal after Crisis 19. Returning on Sunday I thought it might be nice starting to paint some miniatures again. I had purchased quite a lot more Vietnam war models so I will continue to ad to my collection by painting them up through this winter. By the way I bought some MDF 25mm round bases. As I always ad a magnet to them, for easy storage, how would you do that with these bases? I used plastic slota bases up to now.

Here is the NVA figure I painted ( Empress miniature by Paul Hicks)

Crisis 2019 Convention report

So Crisis has gone by very quickly again. Many thanks to the tin Soldiers of Antwerp for hosting this mega event again. Like in the years before it was wonderful to see all the demonstration and participation games . these were all of a very high standard as you can see in the pictures below. There was a host of traders selling their goods alas there were some spaces free as not al british traders attended because of Brexit. Anyway it was great to meet so many friends again and to make a few new ones. Can’t wait for Crisis 2020.

Below are the pictures I took during the event, enjoy!

Obituary for Stuart Asquith

With great sadness I have to inform you that the well known writer, publisher and wargamer Stuart Asquith passed away at the beginning of this week.

He was second to none in influencing me to take up wargaming as a hobby and I fondly remember his books and magazines which I read in the late 70th and early80th. I remember how I eagerly waited for the postman to deliver them over here in Germany ( that took quite a time back then as everything had to go through snail mail).

I am sure that a lot of fellow wargamers were influenced by him massively.

His death is a great loss for his family and close friends but also for the greater wargaming community !

It would be great if there could be a prize named after him at one of the great wargaming shows in the future as a remembrance.

May he rest in peace
