So I'd only planned to just have a look at some new figures in 54mm (a scale I haven't played with since I was a child) and before I knew it, I'd started a whole new project.

More details here on my blog….

:) awesome !
Very disappointed I couldn't make it this year, and it's only just up the road.

Then again there will be the toy soldier show June 4th. Lots of plastic goodness there as well !

Unfortunately I'm away in Glasgow that weekend…probably just as well or I'd end up buying more stuff!

Tempted by the AiP colonials myself.

I hate when that happens:-)
If you need some simple rules check out this group.
Best of luck and I'm looking forward to painted minis on your blog.

I hate it when that happens… now I get into periods because people GIVE me figures from their lead mountain they figure they'll have no time for! That's how I started my 15mm Napoleonic Prussians and 28mm War of the Roses.

Call me a cynic, but sure it was an "accident".

I suspect your psyche has been plotting this for some time, without you being aware of it.

Also tempted – they are selling them in my local model shop which makes them even harder to resist and with the new Osprey colonial skirmish rules due out….

Well done on joining in 54mm Colonials – Anthony and I already have a large AIP collection for Northwest Frontier. Let us know when you want to play a game at Guildford…

Hi Mike. I've seen you and Anthony's figures..they may have helped tip me over the edge! I'll have to get painting and join you.

@Green Tiger…yes, the new Osprey rules look very tempting. Sharp Practice 2 should be easily stretched to the late 19th Century too.
