An Aside / Personality Figure.

I should be reporting the third part of my 40mm SYW  game, but the weather has turned very cold and my wargaming room is NOT the warmest place in this type of weather . My wargaming colleague 'S' regularly dons several layers of extra clothing to game with me at this time of year. Fear not !, I will continue with the game shortly.  I found the above 40mm figure on EBay , manufacturer unknown . He is actually a Marlburian figure I think (?) but as there are not many 40mm figs about I bought him on a whim ! . He will be Uncle Toby an English Officer and Gentleman - okay several wars and decades out of period , but I don't care ! . Now I need a suitable figure for his servant Corporal Trim . I have tried to read 'Tristram Shandy' several times but failed (hangs head in shame)(where of course Uncle Toby appears) this may spur me on to try again !. P.S. just noticed this is my 200th post ! Huzza !


  1. Great figure full of character. Congrats on 200th post - keep up the good work...

  2. Congratulations on the 200th post. I got a copy of Tristram Shandy from Santa at Xmas and have just started reading it, it is heavy going and Mrs C has started taking bets on how long it will be before I give it up!
    Best wishes, Brian

    1. I must try again myself , sot of book you have to take on holiday as your only reading matter - managed to read 'The Silmarillion' that way .
