Hoppah's Home.  These pages will contain wargames related stuff.

 

Following on from others, I am a father, husband, wargamer and layabout, although not always in that order!  ;-)

 

This wiki is going to be all about my wargames related ramblings, usually totally biased and unfair, but there you go. 

 

 

 

I am based in South Devon, gaming with the Devon Wargames Group who are currently in the middle of moving venue.  We are currently in the midde of a 1944 US vs German campaign based around the breakout from Utah beach.  It's going so-so for the Germans, but there are loads of Americans!

 

 

Update, 15th July

Time flies when everything goes to pot.  I have done little painting in the last month as I have been a bit crook.  The elbow thing just won't get better and, as it hurts to paint, it tends to stop me painting.  I have rebased all my 15mm WW2 British for Flames of War.  They will go on Ebay today, once I have taken some pictures of them.  Apart from that, it's been a pretty dull month.  Nothing but rain, bills, rain, kids and rain.

 

 

Update, 16th June

It's been a bit chaotic here, so not much has got done.  My step-daughter has just given birth to a daughter, I have done my right elbow in, my son's seem to think money grows on tree's and I can't roll a 6 for love nor money.

 

Painting wise, not much has got done.  I did a few destroyed vehicles as PBI markers, painted a pair of Tigers for Ebay, did 2 R-35 light tanks for my PBI Luftwaffe and painted the T28 halftracks for a chap in Germany.  Plans have changed (again).  I am now doing the FoW Falschirmjagers for ebay, plus some kubelwagons for my Germans.  I have also ordered some more French tanks from Peter Pig, as a secret weapon for my Luftwaffe.

 

 

Update, 30th May

Only a few pictures this time, as things have been a bit hectic.  New car, new dishwasher, new stereo for car, new tumbledrier.....all in all its been an expensive month.  I did manage to get away to the Partizan show and spent a little bit of cash.  This is my favourite show, even though its a 4 hour drive each way.  I have several friends up there and its a good chance to get together with people from all over the country.  It's also one of the best shows in terms of eye-candy.  Most of the games are excellent to look at and there are enough traders to satisfy even Nik Harwood. 

 

Painted this month are some 15mm German grenadiers and nebelwerfers (for Ebay) and a squad of 25mm British Para's by Bolt Action.

 

Current projects are 4 Battlefront T28 halftracks for a chap in Germany, 5 Sd251 flamethrower halftracks for another chap in Germany (who happens to be the opponent of the first chap), over 30 Bolt Action 25mm WW2 British Paras (mine!) and a load of 15mm Falschirmjager (for ebay).  I am leaning towards painting some 15mm ACW now though, as I have bought, played and enjoyed the new Peter Pig rule set Civil War Battles.    Try it, you'll like it.

 

 

 

Update, 1st May

I have added some more pictures to the 25mm WW2 page, the Germans this time.  I have also added a page for pictures of the Flames of War stuff I paint up to sell on ebay.

 

 

 

Update, 23rd April

Well Salute has been and gone for another year.  I spent less than expected and all my purchases were 25mm!  That wasn't planned.  I got some British Para's and Italian infantry from BAM, some Mongrel militia and a Chieftain Models L6/40 light tank.  Oh, and some magnetic basing sheets.  That was it.  Plan is to paint my 15mm Italians this month, then do the 25mm stuff next month. 

 

PS  So much for that plan.  I ended up finishing off my 25mm WW2 Germans and painting some 15mm casualties for PBI. 

 

 

 

Update, 19th April

I have added a couple of photos to the 25mm WW2 page.
