Of The Naming Of Cats And Casting.

After much consideration it has been decided to re-name our new kitten . Alfred did not suit him and people had started shortening it to 'Alfy' making him sound like a character from 'Eastenders' (a program that annoys me greatly !). So with great deliberation it has been changed to 'Hodge'- after Dr Johnson's cat (the dictionary chappie-18th cent.) , here he is seen overseeing the painting of a 40mm standard bearer- his knowledge of the 18th century British for a young chap is impressive.

Got some more figures painted and a drummer and standard bearer.

I have mounted them on 30mm x 30mm bases to add stability .

I am going to do some French figures using a different mold to try out colour schemes. I am thinking of using 'Charge' but with a slightly altered organisation.


  1. Hmmm, not to be confused with Hodges (2 TV possibilities there - Dad's Army and CSI).

    Very impressed with his knowledge and supervisory skills ;)

    Not to forget - lovely figures :)

  2. A splendid cat Sir - he is a credit to you.

    Drummer Hodge perhaps?

  3. figures looking very dandy. Hodge brings to mind 'Hodge and his Masters' by Richard Jefferies, although I suspect it will soon be 'Hodge and his Servants' if he follows the habits of most felines.
