Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

Vive l'Empereur!

Not dead! Very busy with work and a couple of family emergencies but I have still been dunking away at a few bits and pieces:

Work on Black Seas continues apace.

My marvellous wife - She Who Must Be Obeyed - bought me the magnificent Fall of Delta Green as an anniversary present. 

The 11th Hussars are ready to charge into action as part of the continuing Penninsular War Project.

The next update should be the completed Black Seas fleets.

Obviously I was going to buy into Black Seas. I really enjoy cruel seas and I love my Napoleonic naval combat so this was a given.

So here is my first 1/700 scale frigate, rigged and with paper sails. The rigging was slightly more complex than on a 1/1200 as it had to be more accurate. However, the models are designed to make rigging as easy as possible. She is currently awaiting ratlines and a decision on basing. I am tempted to do a sea base as I have done with other naval games.

Really nice miniatures and looking forward to playing the game.
