As with most collectors and wargamer’s the hobby for me evolved with the Airfix sets of the 1970s, collecting as many as my pocket money and chores could stretch to, together with a paper round, birthdays and Christmas!

Very quickly the ranks of many eras were filled with miniatures, losses caused by the hoover, dog or missing in action in the garden rockery, would soon be replaced with another box. With so many hours of fun, it was a matter of time before the need for organisation and uniform guides came to the front, these with rules and ideas of how to play the big game were and are never too far away from the job at hand.
