first post

Well first post in this blog and hopefully the begining of many....

As it is quite cold outside (at least for Tokyo standards) and I have just finished writing my master thesis, I realised that I should start a blog!

So let me introduce myself by saying that I have been painting minis since the age of 12...
Over the years, I spent more money and time than I can remember on these small things. Not that I regret it ofcourse :D

Like most wargamers, I started playing and collecting minis with Warhammer fantasy!

I suppose I should explain here that although I had an interest in Napoleonics for longer then I can remember the cost of a 28mm army was impossible to bear... Plus the available rulesets for many years where not that friendly to young people used to coloured rulebooks with amazing eye-candy (GW rulebooks anyone?)

However, with the release of the beautiful plastics by Victrix and Perry and the "Black Powder" rules, the dream of having a 28mm Napoleonic army, finally became a reality!

Hopefully in the days, months and years to come I will be able to show you my collection as it gradually grows...

My main focus will be the armies of Napoleon after 1810. I am not going after a particular period but I suppose the Russian campaign would be my focus... One day someone will make plastic Russians and then....

  1. Look forward to seeing your Napoleonic army grow Achilles,

    28mm naps were my 1st love but I moved over to 15mm for cost (and lack of 28mm players). Now perry 28mm plastic figures are cheaper than my 15mm AB's plus so many great releases are planned (including the 1812 Russians!).
    Feels like a golden age for 28mm napoleonic fans!
