A little late Spring cleaning

Well, now that The Burrow is fully operational if not slightly untidy still, it occurred to me in a rare moment of sanity and sobriety that once I’ve got all my already painted Sikh Wars troops, and the remaining already painted Seven Years War British and Hanoverians, and several regiments of other stuff, that the only way to accommodate them would be to increase my table height by another 6”. Now, many of my Wargames friends are over 6’ tall but several are not. Rather than employ step ladders in order to maintain full inclusiveness, I decided to sell some rarely used and unloved stuff and create some space. Yes, and this from he who said he would never sell another painted collection again!

So it’s farewell to my Russian Civil War collection, who shall soon find themselves fighting in the sweltering heat of New Mexico πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ rather than the snows of Siberia πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί . It’s also goodbye πŸ‘‹ to my enormous American Revolution collection, that is going in the other direction to Switzerland πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­  . Interestingly for  anyone who likes to record the journeys individual boxes (there must be someone) part of the latter collection is being sent in a box that came to me from Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

This clear out is undoubtedly a good thing, especially as I seem to be expanding my FRW stuff as it creeps towards 1806! I also really want to get the Sikh Wars collection finished and on the table this year. I also have 12 now empty A3 sized really useful plastic boxes waiting for new occupants.

  1. A clear out is good for the sol, so well done! I'm looking forward to seeing the Sikh Wars collection deployed for action.
