History Alive 2013 – Napoleonics   Leave a comment

Last weekend, I managed to get to my favourite event. History Alive 2013

I am always thankful when I go there to the organisers and re-enactors who put so much effort into organising the event and make it a great adventure, this year I only got to go on the Sunday, next year will try and go both days.

My favourite period is Napoleonic and will start with a few photos of them.

Possibly my favourite photo from the day is Michelle Spano as a French Cavalry.

I am always happy to get good photos of the firing Muskets

Something Different – Napoleonics Wargame Figures   1 comment

I have always had different hobbies over time, and used to play figure wargames, more of a painter then a player.

Have not really play/painted much for a number years.

I recently found this partly assembled unit of Napoleonic Old Guard figures, and decided to finish them.

Painted to my “wargaming” standard.

Makes me think I need 48 hour days t odo everything I want to.

Photo taken with 450D and 60mm Macro lens, with external flash

Now back to my photography hobby 🙂

Cheers Dave
