Manchester come to somewhere unspecified in Leicester

2017-10-11 00:00:00

Which is my roundabout way of letting you know about our recent weekend at the World Championships, ex of Derby (twice), ex of Castle Donnington and now at Bruntingthorpe, deep, deep in the darkest heart of rural Leicestershire.

The ever reliable Derek Pitman accompanied me in this expedition with his wonderful Siege of Manchester ECW game

Historical gaming - 'The times they are a changing.'

2017-09-20 00:00:00

Bit of a change of tack with this entry.  No new items to pimp or updates to give.  No, I’m going to have a bit of a ramble about the state of the wargaming hobby as I see it.   It might go on a bit, but I hope that you’ll stick with it and let me know what you think on the Baccus forum.

What I did on my Holidays. Oh, and some TYW flags...

2017-08-15 00:00:00

I got wet, got whirled around, and got poorer.  On the other hand, had a great time with a very excited five year old let loose on a theme park.   There you go.

So back to work and it really is a case of landing with feet running as The Other Partizan show is coming up this weekend..   We'll be in our usual spot and be showing off some new items in the shape of the first releases from our new TYW flag sheets.

Baccus goes on Holiday

2017-08-03 00:00:00

It's been a gruelling few months for us folk at Baccus Towers and we've decided to take a Summer break.    To that end, we will be closed from 4th August until 14th August.

While we are away sampling the hedonistic delights of the fleshpots of somwhere or other, (that translates as sheltering from a force 10 gale behind a windbreak on a forlorn seafront), no phone calls or emails will be answered.   The site shopping cart will still be functioning and we'll pick up the orders upon our return.

Right, I'm off to pack my bags...

2017-07-26 00:00:00

Sunday 16th July saw the annual gathering of 6mm gamers from all over the country (and the world) to make their pilgrimage to the Joy of Six 2017.  I would like to thank Nick Johnson for doing sterling work in taking the photographs that makes this report possible.

Once again we were able to make use of the wonderful Heartspace atrium giving the whole event a light and spacious feel while offering great opportunities for panoramic photographs and top-down shots of some of the wonderful wargames tables in evidence.
