Grey's Armoured Division
Finally finished all the stripey tanks and missile trucks of the vaguely Communist/Grey Armoured Division. Not convinced the paper red stars on the missile trucks will stay, but if they fall off not that bothered! The thing that always amazes me is the cost...

25mm Napoleonic British
At the moment I'm getting bogged down painting-wise with the 'quick Chinese soldiers'! This can only be described as ridiculous, stupid or both... Anyway, back to the old days and Garrison catalogues. Garrison produced about 5 variations of Napoleonic figur...

Air support - helicopters
There are a number of nice cheap toy Chinese helicopters available. Some come in rather garish colours but a quick spray and painting the windows blue is quite effective. Nice force of helicopters... I didn't do any work on these apart from the quick paint ...

Garrison ECW
Just got back yesterday from a trip up North to collect some terrain boards from Robbie Rodiss (thanks for the boards). Anyway, the question of the Garrison ECW range came up - no pictures of them around so seems a good time to put pictures of some of them ...

Creatures featured
For more years than I care to remember I've been visiting Birmingham for specific reasons. Sandra and I decided it was probably about time we went to visit the place for a few days just to see the city. We just got back and... Sealife Centre and Dudley Zoo ...

Rocket Trucks
Standard 99p for 2 Chinese toys, these rocket trucks look quite effective painted up. 'Towed Artillery' models are of limited use - they don't look all that good - so the various rocket trucks are going to have to do as anti-tank, anti-aircraft and field ar...

Retro Toys 60 soldiers
Wandered into a seaside gift shop and spotted this - thought '£2.50, why not' They're down as 'World War II Soldiers' but if so I haven't the faintest idea what country! Probable best use would be some near-future conflict, definitely in the 'toy' range. I ...

... spiders. This lot were infesting the local branch of Sainsburys - 8 for a pound. Careful where you land... spaceships are a couple of TinTin figures I've just bought. This could make an interesting Cthulhu type scenario. As for going to church - Sarissa...
