"When I was very young, I played quite intricate games with plastic toy soldiers; first with what I now know as 54mm Timpo knights in armour and Cowboys and Indians, and later on with the Airfix ho/oo sets of figures. I think I had everything from Queen`s Guard Bandsmen, Modern Civilians, WWI, WWII, Napoleonics, American War of Independence, American Civil War, Romans and Ancient Britains, Sheriff of Nottingham and Robin Hood, Arabs and Foreign Legion… and I believe there was even an Apollo Moon Landing set. Later on I collected the entire Airfix 54mm WWII range as well, and all this was long before I even knew there was such a thing as the `unofficial` body of hobbyists known as wargamers.

I was always inspired by war films as a kid, and I can remember thinking, as an enthusiastic 10 year old does, "Wow! I wish I could do that." I think my own effort were always somewhat less spectacular than the films I`d watch on the telly, which were all viewed in black and white for most of us (unless your parents were rich enough to be able to afford a colour TV… which mine weren`t)…"

Interesting find Armand! In lockdown I'm looking more closely at solo gaming so this was useful.

Thank you Armand!
For anyone severely immunocompromised whose doctors have
strongly discouraged even small gatherings, this was
really inspiring and encouraging. Not to mention some
great ideas to boot! Great find.

As always, thank you

It seems strange to me and totally incongruous with the notion of using ones imagination NOT to enjoy playing alone.

Hear hear!
