A new Project?? and Cancon 2013

For a long time I have wanted to do something in the middle ages.
With so many wars and periods to choose from I have never been able to decide on one.
Now i think after much deliberation I am going to use Hail Caesar rules to do a quasi Battle of Lake Peipus (or battle on Ice)
Mainly I love this figure which will be prominent in the battle ,Warrior Bishop of the Teutonic Order




All Gripping Beast Models. Now i need to come up with a good OOB and special rules for each and then sort out the basing before ordering up a storm.
Fireforge's lovely plastic models will be perfect for the Teutonic knights

plus their sergeants. Now I have to research the hell out of this so I can think about plastic conversions useable for the Russians as well......

The other alternative is to use them fro German KNights and the Bishop could be Siegfried of Westerburg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siegfried_II_of_Westerburg.
This way I could use the Teutons for both sides as German Knights! Decisions decisions.......

Looking forward to Cancon on the weekend and will probably make the first of my planned purchases for the project.

New Blog!
I have decided to start a new blog to embrace my wargaming ADD.
For too long i have flitted from one project to another, sold them off and started all over again.
So I decided that, NO MORE!!! I shall embrace my manic mood swings and paint whatever I want at any particular time.
So whats on the bench???

Some 15mm French Napoleonics just ready to be flocked......this is for a planned Age of Eagles project .

28mm Sudan plastic Mahdists all based and finished- planned The Sword and the Flame project.

Now the following are all for my WW2 in the pacific using Iron Ivan's Disposable Heroes: Point Blank in 28mm

Some finished Japanese and US Marines. Marines painted by my chum the Cardinal- http://thecardinalspaintingblog.blogspot.com.au/


Some Japanese on the bench ready to be based


Just received these Chindit Bren gunners to use as Aussies ( I have ordered the rest of the Aussies form Brigade games but they only have Bren gunners prone and to be honest I dont like prone figures so i got these)

A confederate general...I am building a Reb Divison for my mate Sparkers ( http://sparkerswargames.blogspot.com/ ) 150th Anniversary game of Gettysburg later in the year. I will take some piccies of the regiments already done later. I have 2 boxes of Rebs on their way from Ian at www.warandpeacegames.com.au 


Will try to keep this updated!
