In the beginning there was lead – Old stuff day

Apparently 2nd of March is a national holiday called Old Stuff Day. To be honest I just heard about it today. But  given I live in tomorrow land and time zones are a thing there is still time to observe this important holiday.

Eureka Miniatures Grenzers – review and painted examples

During a visit to Australia (conference in Melbourne) I had the pleasure to visit Eureka miniatures.

I would like to use them with the Ganesha Games skirmish rules Song of Drums and Shakos, slightly modified to match the context of the Seven Years War. All I need now are some Jägers or other light troops and off we go.
