All Quiet on the Western Front

Gone a bit quiet around here hasn’t it?

I have a healthy lead pile (mainly cavalry), plastic kits and some scenery waiting in the wings, but it doesn’t look like they’ll get done any time soon.

Partly this is due me still being burnt out after the last big game. I’m just not in the mood to do any painting or modelling at the moment. Another reason is the lack of opportunity for spraying undercoat on stuff due to little spare time, the weather etc. etc.

Plus I’m also involved in the Herefordshire History website. This project, spearheaded by Herefordshire Libraries, aims to digitise the county’s entire collection of historical documents, newspapers, photos etc. and make them available to view. My small part in the noble endeavour is to scour the WW1 photos and identify any details – for example, can a soldier’s regiment be identified from his cap badge?

The website - - officially launched last week, and is well worth a look.

Despite feeling well and truly jaded with VBCW, I have already made a few steps towards planning the next Big Game, scheduled for 14th March 2015.

The battle to control the Golden Valley Railway and it’s connections will continue, and rumour has it that the Anglican League have already formulated a plan of action…
