Even before i've started...

...painting or collecting my Roman and Celt army, i'm already looking at other eras to branch into! This is unfortunately the flaw for any would-be gamer. There are so many tempting ranges out there! I watched Zulu Dawn last night and upon searching the internet, I was amazed to see the number of sites stocking miniatures from that time. This certainly is a project I'd like to do, perhaps in a few months, so if you're interested in that era then please bookmark this page and come back soon!

I found some great figures at Empress Miniatures and once again at Wargames Foundry

Hello, my name is Edward and i've been wargaming on and off for around 10 years (although I had a 5 year break in between, during secondary school, to avoid bullying). Since starting at University, nobody cares what you do so i've decided to take it up again.

I was browsing the internet and came across a wonderful blog by the name of iron-mitten run by a guy named Simon. I was hugely inspired by the blog and it was mostly because of this that I decided to take up wargaming again. I've decided to collect several armies from the Roman era such as Celts, Gauls and the Romans themselves. I have since bought a paint set (I got rid of my old one because I thought i'd never paint again) from Wargames Foundry and around 50 Roman figures (a mixture from Wargames Foundry, Gripping Beast and Kingmaker Miniatures) to form my first army from. I'll do another post in a few weeks when i've made a start on painting the figures...I've also decided to start a campaign based on the early days of The Roman Empire and its expansion into Germany/France but details on that to follow.
