Another test piece for my new Punic War project. Eventually I'll be buying a more of these but I just had to paint a couple of War Elephants now, if only to pique the interest of my daughter! These were really fun to paint and I'm really rather chuffed with...

The young Padawan bought these plastic figures at SELWG last month and has been repainting them. Thankfully I think I have persuaded her to go down the historical route but these models were a useful painting lesson. She decided on the colours (I wouldn't w...

Last weekend I had a super time running a weekend of To the Strongest! at the Wargames Holiday Centre with Mark Freeth and 14 gamers, many of them veterans of previous events. I'm afraid I was too busy to take very many photo...

Historical Wargamer, Roleplayer & Miniatures Painter

My blog - BigLee’s Miniature Adventures - is dedicated to my passion for miniatures paintingwargaming, roleplaying games, board games and all things military history

I’m a member of Posties Rejects a group based in Kent who wargame a wide range of historical periods using various rules including Fire & Fury and General de Brigade. I'm also a founding member of the Dagenham Dungeon Delvers a group of long time friends who play Roleplaying Games such as D&DHollow Earth Expedition, Marvel Heroic and Call of Cthulhu. 

I am currently working on a Flames of War project using 6mm figures and vehicles to recreate the campaign in North Africa 1942 and the activities of the LRDG. More recently I have also started a 6mm 2nd Punic War project employing the To the Strongest rules.

A very interesting museum with some surprising and unique exhibits. Plenty of interactive stuff to keep the kids interested and lots of large exhibits (vehicles & AVRE's etc) to keep Dad happy. The only negative - and its a big one for me - is that the museum operates a no photography policy inside the building. This isn't mentioned on the website which is a bit naughty.
