Lovely Vintage ECW Battle Report Saturday, Jul 31 2010 

This is a lovely account of a table top English Civil War battle from 1977, on Vintage Wargames.

Off to do a Basic Baroque game tonight, armed with two bottles of Sea Dog.

Happy Gaming,

Doctor Faust’s Painting Tips Tuesday, Nov 24 2009 

Great list of painting tips here at Doctor Faust’s Painting Clinic.

I particularly like this one:

I have a good method for pinning.  Hold the joint together as you wish it to stay.  Then, using a fine marker, draw four lines (evenly spaced) across the joint.  Then, on each piece, connect the four marks and drill where “X” marks the spot.  Works every time.  You really can’t screw this one up.

I also like the approach of just gluing the parts together, then drilling through to pin.
