Just as I thought I was almost over my 'oooh shiny!' addiction. This looks like the most important wargaming item in my 2018 calendar! More here.
And while I'm at it, I figured I might as well share another couple of recent things that have been completed since getting over my illness.
First of all - I completed my collection of Practical Wargamer magazine. The last four missing issues from my collection were filled in by Caliver Books. I loved this magazine when it was going, and I still love it today. An endless source of inspiration.

As I am about to receive my 15mm Seven Year War Russian army from Old Glory 15s, I thought I would buy a few bits and pieces to finish them off. Now I needed some Cossacks, Horse Grenadiers and generals, and only 1 gun each for the Prussians and Austrians, but by the time you factor in postage and the extras that I didn't really need from the US (no point buying a pack of 6 guns when you only need 1), I couldn't really go with OG15s again. So I thought I would try some Eureka minis. These duly arrived nad they are beautiful sculpts, but...

So I've now ordered the same mounted figures from Irregular Miniatures - generals, horse grenadiers and cossacks. They may be a tad smaller than the OG15s, but if their 7 Years War figures are the same size as their Great Northern War figures that I have, they should actually fit together very well. I've also ordered limbers for the Russians from Irregular as well, and was always going to, so I should have just done this in the first place.
Let me know if you'd like the Eureka mounted figures - free to a good home.
