I've just posted the first in a series of articles on my blog describing how I came up with my imagi-nation, the Barryat of Lyndonia.


But rather than launching straight into describing the Barryat's armies, this first article is a bit of a prequel, telling the story of how my love of 18th century wargaming started as a schoolboy, and has continued in various iterations through till today as I am about to become a retiree.

Future postings will describe the regiments of the army of the Barryat of Lyndonia.

So the first wargame rules our old group used was Charge! too. Somehow, I ended up with some of the figures from his collection, including some of the redcoated figures pictured on the dust cover.

Oddly enough, the entire collection of figures ended up in Pittsburgh at a hobby shop. Sat in their basement for years. Eventually the owners wife started selling them off at local flea markets. That's where I picked up a couple of them. Not sure what happened to the rest.

Nice blog and very nice figures you have there. Well done.
