King Arthur

Who was the shadowy figure that permeates English myth and did he ever really exist? I've always been fascinated by the Arthur legend through books and films, so I've recently decided to take the plunge and start collecting a 28mm Romano-British army based loosely on the Arthur legends.

This journal will be a record of my Arthurian wargaming project and will focus on the wargaming aspects of this period, I'll leave the history to other enlightened souls.

My hope is that this blog will provide people with a guide to collecting figures and wargaming this fascinating period of British history.

In the next post I'll go into more detail about which figures and rules I've decided to use and my vision for this army.

In the meantime here are a some pictures of the first unit I've completed:

Thanks for looking in, I hope you find it useful and come back often.



  1. Your army looks very nice and your choice of red is spot on.

  2. Thanks for the kind comments Christopher. The red took quite a bit of playing with until I was happy. I think the time spent was worth it in the end though.

  3. Really nice. The red gives your unit a very uniform feel and your bases are excellent.

  4. Hi Peter, Very impressed by your painting style. The basing I believe adds highlight to an already nice unit. Without offending, can I ask, did you hand paint your banners? If so again very nice, a skill I would like to develop.
