Merry Christmas !



Just a quick post to say a very Merry Christmas to everyone following, commenting, reading or just visiting this blog over the year.  I hope you and your families all have a fantastic Christmas Day tomorrow.  Thank you all so very much for your company, conversation and inspiration in 2012.


After a frantic Christmas Eve with the family, I’m looking forward to sitting down and doing some painting for Curt’s Analogue Hobbies Challenge – this was the marshaling of my first batch of poilu, plus some suitably French inspiration, a couple of days ago!  Joyeux Noël mes amis!!

  6. Merry Christmas, we have a Camambert just like that :-) See you have a copy of "The Price of Glory" a cracking read, look forward to seeing the Frenchies with some paint on in due course. I have the Stormtrooper book that you recommended enroute, looked to good to resist.

    1. Thanks Phil! I'll be reviewing "The Price of Glory" as one of the Verdun books. It's a very fine history and stands the test of time well. Hope you enjoy Thomas Wictor's book - I thought it was excellent.

  9. Happy Christmas. Your blog was perhaps the most inspiring I've read this year, and is the direct cause of a large pile of unpainted WW1 lead on my desk at the moment. Very interested to hear more about the French project and further terrain plans.

    1. That's very kind indeed, Sir! I am deeply sorry for the lead mountain. I can only hope that I can help you shift some of that!

  16. Happy Christmas from Oz mate. Hope you had a great one, and I can't wait to see what you do with les poilus. I'm thinking that I shall be diggin out my Scarab Frenchies and finally getting some paint on them. Alastair Horne's Price of Glory was a cracking read, (have you read his Fall of Paris?) you'll have to let me know what The Road to Verdun is like..
