Memories of times past etc

Hello I'm back-back to work and on the road to feeling better- I hope.Work is very busy and I have had little time or energy of late. I have begun some ECW 54mm figures for a forthcoming project- details later .

I am enjoying two play by email/photograph/map games- one set in ww1 using FLW rules and another using Stuart Asquith's Big Wars. The latter involves being sent photos of what one's commander  can see on the table  and sending orders from this information.

Since I've been away from blogging I've had a conceit to try and do some 1930s civilian militias in 54mm for a very British Civil War circa 1938. My memories of my Wm Britians catalogue 1964 or so gave me hope- farmers with shot guns,mounted figures in hunting pink and suitable carts.
However looking at their current range on the web I see I am well out of touch! No farmer with shotgun ,no fox hunters etc! I fear I should have realised time has indeed moved on...
So any ideas for 1938 in 54mm eagerly sought- thanks in anticipation


  1. Forty-Third miniatures have some 54mm railway bods and a 1940's range. Maybe Sarum Soldiers too?
    Glad you are feeling a bit more hale

  2. Glad to hear you're feeling better!
    I love the illustrations of the Britains stuff there. I would've definitely been tempted if the figure style matched the illustrations. :)
