Thanks for stopping by and you will find updates on my current Wargaming projects, and games that have been involved in. I have been Wargaming since I was 13 ( which was sometime ago) and like most was heavily influenced by the wonderful work of the late Don Featherstone.
My main Wargaming period as always been WW2 and in particular the campaign in NW Europe 44 to 45. I have tried gaming it in other scales but came back to the one true scale of 20mm about 10 years or so ago and have not switched since...
Aside from Ww2, I have just about finished a British brigade in 28mm for a campaign at my local club. should give the club a plug at this point it is the Herts Volunteers and we meet in Bishop' Stortford in Hertfordshire.
I also game Napleonics and despite having a reasonably large 15 mm French army have just started raising forces in 28mm.
I am lucky enough to have a table at home along with a painting space and will be posting plenty of photos as I go.
I am also a keen board gamer and a big fan of World in Flames, but play other strategic games when given the chance.
Feel free to ask questions about painting figures, rules or anything else Wargaming related.
Hopefully you will find something in these pages to inspire you to take up a hobby that has given me a lot of enjoyment and some great friends.
Should not finish without a quick thanks to my dear long suffering wife Jane and my son Harry who at a relatively young age is starting to show interest in following me into Wargaming...
All the best.

Projects for 2015
Evening Realised have not updated for a while and thought I'd give a quick over view of projects I am working on over this year. I am due to be putting on a game at my local club in October which is going to be based on the battle of Epsom and to attempt to capture hill 112 on the 29 th June 1944. This is going to involve me building more terrain boards of which will be posting plenty of photos in a similar style to ones I have made for Sword beach and Pegaus bridge.will post some photos of these so you can see the finished articles and have recently written an article on the contstruction of them that will hope to be appearing in a Wargaming magazine soon. Aside from terrain building th either idea behind this project is to rapidly increase my armour levels that I have in 20mm. Painting and building wise there will hopefully be plenty of armour on your screen! As for figures we'll always need more Ww2 20mm infantry but am also closing in on finishing my British AWI Division for our club project with a unit of Queens Rangers, a further foot regt and commanders to do. After that will be returning to my second favourite period Napleonics..... Cheers Phil
