Travels with a Rogue

A small piece of the web dedicated to Gen. Mikhail Skobolev (the White General), toy soldiers (any period), history, politics and books circa. 1850-1900.

There was an earlier day in my life when I had plenty of time and no money for my hobby, now I have money for my hobby and not so much time. I never stopped playing with toy soldiers "much to my mothers chagrin" exchanging the sandbox, green armymen and rocks for Donald Featherstone's book Wargames, AWI soldiers from the back of a comic book, dice and rulers. Those early games were great fun and very exciting. Eventually I graduated to more complicated systems, better miniatures, headaches, rule arguments and basically not a lot of fun. I thought about ditching the hobby altogether. I realized recently that I like a good game of toy soldiers. I like the look of toy soldiers and I like the way a simple game plays. I like the trusty d6.

Photo's Coming!

It's been awhile; I have been working on my SYW blog and sort of let this one slip. I have continued painting and have a number of photos coming, I promise, soon!

I should be posting some Russian Riflemen, Egyptians, and a couple of Generals. I have done 1 minor conversion. I used the Irregular Minis horse holder, bent his arm and attached a new head to create Gen M Skobolev. It was a very easy conversion and he looks pretty good.

So anyway, keep the faith, photos are coming.
