I started clearing my wargames room yesterday and to be honest, it was awful. It's also going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

However one of the advantages of all this clearing is that I can finally get rid of some stuff that I've been hauling around for years with no real plan of how I was going to use it. I'm mainly a Napoleonics chap these days, but a while ago I had an idea that I was going to dangle my toes in Ancients. With that in mind, I picked up a Roman Villa.

This Roman home now needs a good home. Drop me a line if you're interested.

Would work well for my 20mm Hat Romans I think! I am interested.

Conrad, it's 100% guaranteed that you will spot a range of Roman figures which you desperately need to paint and play the very day after you unload that Roman villa.

And then you will desperately search for the villa and re purchase it from the internet at a grossly inflated price.

Good luck on the project. Cleaning up ones hobby space can be a tough task.

I thought you had snuck in and taken a photo of my room at first. But no. I can see floor!!

I tried to build that villa years ago and failed miserably. I now hate kits and they are not too keen on me either.

Years ago I gave away a 25mm medieval tower. I keep finding uses for it 20 years on.

Have fun,

Thanks chaps – I have a number of takers so what I'm going to do is make it a toss up between the fastest guns on TMP and my blog.

That's vojvoda and Rosbif, I'll do it by coin toss as soon as I get a chance.

Let me know!
