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.

New Irregulars

I have more to post for tomorrow; however, here's a tease. This is my first conversion with the Irregular Minis. It was very easy; nothing more then a bent arm and a swapped head. With this minor surgery we go from the figure on the left to the figure on the right; or more properly a dismounted horse holder (as described in the catalog) to Gen Mikhail Skobolev. I am very happy with this conversion. The little horse holder casting is going to become a very valuable item for conversion.
