Well here I am, all wrapped up in my new pikeman clobber. Everything is still very new looking but after Nantwich that will be no longer a concern.
I have always been taken with the idea of being a soldier on campaign and so have added a blanket roll and a snapsack over my armour.
I have even started toying with the idea of painting up a regiment or two of parliamentarian troops. Having joined a whole regiment of Royalist wargamers, I thought it would be useful to paint up some of the enemy if I ever I wanted a game. The great thing about re-enacting the period, is that you get to see and experience all the equipment and gear. Making painting reference a real joy, recalling actual pieces and events.
The problem these days is I have started to dabble in many different eras and so never really get to finish anything. The war gamers curse I'm afraid, oh well at least I'm thinking of painting again and that can only be a good thing.
