So it's Christmas Day...

...and I have bugger all else to do. So here is a tableau of my old stuff:

Front to back, from the Olog-hai troll back left (in front of the organizers) to the Dragon Ogre front right, covers my stuff from 1986 to 1989. Arranged in a long conga line wending its way from back to front.

I had the notion of having my own blog some months ago, and as preparation I opened up my filing boxes, debagged and slotted every last painted (Citadel) mini I still possess. In the process I wanted to analyse the quality of painting, how I have improved (or retrograded) over the passing of time, which figures best mark changes for comparative purposes. There was also the matter of book-keeping because I sold quite a lot in the 80's, for a pittance by today's standards. Most of them were sold from a gaming shop on Orpington High Street. Sound familiar? 

And a slightly clearer view to finish.

Merry Christmas,


  1. Very nice collection.You seemed to have hold onto some of the vrackers from back then.
    I´m looking forward to your newer output.

  2. Thanks for making a positive first comment. I think when you typed 'vrackers', you meant 'crackers', for a while I was wondering what were the vrackers in the photo... :)
