Introduction I've been wargaming for well over 40 years and tried almost everything at some time. I was originally inspired by Don Featherstone and my school friend, Chris Beaumont. Chris was a follower of Charles Grant's and Brigadier Peter Young's books so I had these influences too. Nowadays I am enjoying the revival of these "old school" wargaming doctrines but also seek to combine them with realistic terrain and figures and the many useful wargaming rules and systems that I've picked up along the way - hence the name of my blog! I wargame with a small group of mostly old friends, and their sons, and the "boys" and "girls" in my family when they are willing. My chief periods of interest are: my Mid-18th Century Imagi-Nation; Seven Years War; American War of Independence, French and Indian War; Napoleonic Wars; American Civil War and WW2. Up till Summer 2011 I edited and published my wargames group's magazine - "The Greatfield Galloper" but have now discontinued that and intend to document my interests in a blog instead. Some readers may also know me as the "house artist" for Phil Olley's short lived magazine "The Classic Wargamers Journal"......hopefully we will see it revived!
Interests Historic wargaming, landscape and figure painting, watching wildlife; walking or cycling in the countryside
