Welcome to the modern age of technology Aly I look forward to seeing more updates and if you want photos of sone of our games from the past I have quite a few.Dave
I've still got both those books but sadly mine's hasn't been signed by Mr Featherstone although I did have the pleasure of meeting him and chatting at Salute a number of years ago. I remember he was very interested in our Schleswig Holstein game we put on for the Continental Wars Society.
Hi Dave...Hopefully I will manage to keep this going...as I am such a butterfly there should be lots of variety.I do intend to post about past games so I will no doubt take you up on your offer.I certainly remember that Salute.... because it is where I got Donald to sign my books...All the best...Aly
Welcome to the mad world of Blogger. Look forward to seeing lots of your toys in due course, sounds like they will be varied ;~)
Hi Phil.I thought it was about time I joined the 21st century...I think there will be a lot of variety, Hopefully people will enjoy my butterfly approach to this hobby of ours.All the best Aly
As a fairly recent blogger m'self (starting at the much more tender age of 57...), I say "Welcome!" So far, so good. Enjoy what you've done already. Best,Ed M
Gosh, I remember having a castle like that. It was hand made by my father and all pegged together with dowels so bits of wall could be "raised". Now i know where he got his inspiration from, probably on lunch time visit to Hamley's or Gamages. Real pity I do not still have it.
Welcome to the blogosphere Aly!

Enjoying this Aly great walk down memory lane👍
Hello Aly! Looking very forward to future posts about your particular "spin" on the wargaming hobby.Best Regards,Stokes
Aly, I have started reading about 1848 and Schleswig-Holstein. Being another butterfly I thought a few of the shiny toy soldiers for this. I know you have a few suggestions on using different bodies, heads etc on the Spencer Smith page ,but since the range has expanded could you give me some tips for a few Danish, S-H forces and some Prussians including lights!Many thanks. Love the blogMark
Hi Mark...In the short term I highly recommend Ralph Weaver’s book... Tha Armies of the first Schleswig-Holstein War 1848-51... he covers a lot of the interesting uniforms....In the next month or so I intend to post pictures of all off my newly re-based Shiny Schleswig toys... my plan was to possibly say which bits I used... if I can remember that far back... ;-)All the best. Aly
