Like most of miniature painters/gamers I have often considered the fact that I game a lot less then I would like. There are a lot of factors that contribute to this but I believe it boils down to often not having the time. This is not a totally bad thing in and of itself in that I have other hobbies and if they take time away from miniature gaming that’s fine since I am also enjoying. I also really enjoy painting figures, even though I am not that good at it, so I find that even if I do not game at least if I paint I think of it as time well spent. That being said I would like to game more, even solo if necessary, consequently I was intrigued by the release of One Hour Wargames by Neil Thomas. I bought a copy from Amazon and have since read them over although I have not tried them yet. The rules are very simple and are more or less the same across periods with slight period modifications. I intend to at least give them a try using some homemade period modifications. If they lead to a bit more gaming I will consider the purchase a success.
I did find time a few weeks ago to take some photos of the growing Austro-Prussian War 10mm Pendraken collection. The figures are really fantastic and a joy to paint. The buildings are mostly timecast.
