Another year has gone by and the Crisis Convention in Antwerp isn’t far off anymore . I am really looking forward to the convention, which is the best miniature and wargaming convention in Europe (that is on the continent) . There is only one bigger one in London called Salute.  The Tin Soldiers of Antwerp always do a grand job on the day and in the months before to be able to present such a marvelous show. Cudos to you Tin Soldiers!

This years free miniature is Till Eulenspiegel, sculpted by my good friend Paul Hicks.

The list of clubs is here.

14305464_1091310267613521_4623945809469477878_o

Say hi to Queen Maud. Sculpted by, my very good friend ,Paul HIcks and cast by Griffin moulds, she used to answer to the name Matilde of Flanders before she got married to William the Bastard. Misses The bastard quickly changed her name to The conqueror when her husband went on a excursion to Britain in 1066. As a true couple they shared troops to conquer this country and become King and Queen.

Hope to see some of you at Crisis Antwerp this year!
