6milPhil’s Adventures in Wargaming

My love and passion for military history manifested itself at an early age by playing with Airfix toy soldiers, as many of my generation did. Later I discovered Charles Grant, Don Featherstone, Bruce Quarrie and Wargames Research Group, among others. These enabled me to formalise my tabletop adventures, and while I dropped out of wargaming after I left Uni, I rediscovered it one cold December day in a WH Smiths in Dover, when I chanced across a copy of Wargames Illustrated. While I am still something of a lapsed gamer,I enjoy reading about it and making the odd kit, and painting up the occasional unit… currently the Perry’s Napoleonics in plastic.

This brings me to a new WordPress blog, by fellow WW2 Talk member Phil Page, about his love of gaming in 6mm (what we used to call 1/300th). Some great stuff on there, and the scratch-built scenary is really top class. Read the blog here:
