'A gaping silken dragon,/Puffed by the wind, suffices us for God./We, not the City, are the Empire's soul:/A rotten tree lives only in its rind.'

Other side...

... of the hill. The esteemed Kinch requests armour other than of the Hun. I give him some Bolsheviks:

This armour, support and odd bits and pieces all form part of various 'Rapid Fire' units, but I'm damn'd if  can remember, off hand, what or which or whatever. I would need to think about that, and, at the moment, that is beyond me.

And, some out of focus infantry:

Still on a sort of Russian theme, this fellow surfaced (the loft gave him up) the other day. He is a Spencer Smith imagi-nation type (but  note green coat) that I gave my son a few years ago to encourage him in his desire to go 18th Century-wards. However, he has not, yet, reached the age of enlightenment. But, I still have hopes.


  1. Thanks old chap. What are you using these with?

    1. I'm really a 'Rapid Fire' sort of fellow - quick, straightforward, and probably highly unrealistic - just as a game should be!

  2. Super collection there Stephen, I do like the shading on the kits. The Ferd is progressing nicely as well I see.

    1. Thanks, Paul. There are more of the Red horde somewhere, but where is the question! As you say on your blog 'welcome fellow hoarders' ... I'm definitely one of those!
