This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
The flagship for my growing French fleet, the Bucentaure, has just been completed. Again completed is a relative term, as I need both add to and tighten the rigging, but she's ready for the table. The Bucentaure is an 80 gun ship of the line and was the flagship for the French at Trafalgar.
I hope to command her to a better fate against those Brits than Villenueve did! I'm very happy with how the model came out and look forward to getting some table top time with these ships in the near future. By the end of May, my fleet should consist of 25 completed 1/1200 Langtons and I'll be well on my way to my long term goal of re-fighting Trafalgar with models of all the ships present (60 ships-of-the-line and 13 Frigates)!
I do apologize for the background clutter (robotics is still in clean up and organization mode). I may try to build a small photo booth to help improve the picture quality - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
