The ramblings of a wargamer, originally up a valley in a wet and windy place and now back in civilisation.
Please note all the photos on this blog of my collection of wargame miniatures are the property of Colin Ashton and may not be reproduced without the owner's (i.e. me) permission, or at the very least attribute them properly to me please . That means YOU Tango!
I was tidying up, i.e. moving stuff around, my study (the room formerly known as the dining room) when I came across a number of CDs. When I loaded them up I found hundreds of photographs of my wargames collection going back to 2002! Certainly the Darkest Africa collection was last used way back then, although I do still have it in a box under my games table. I was playing a campaign at the Durham Club back then, exploring the Congo as several of us were 'into' Colonial gaming using The Sword and the Flame, and I remember some really fun and bloody games. Maybe I should resurrect them........
Above and below, a scratch built motor launch manned by the Belgian navy. The boiler is made from a kinder egg.
The rest of the pictures show various elements of my Force Publique and tribesmen, together with some Zanzibari slavers and intrepid explorers.
