Above is a pic of Lt. Colonel James Galbraith, Regimental Colour in hand, alongside Bobbie the regimental dog and some of the other "Last Eleven" survivors of the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment, making their last stand in one of the walled gardens just South of Khig village, a few miles West of the Afghan town of Maiwand.

Recently was able to clear a lot of coats & shirts, many of my wife's dresses, and a ton of other stuff out of the closet in my home office, and then had the interior redone with storage shelves all around instead of hanger rods.

I'm hoping this will give me enough storage for ALL MY HOBBY NEEDS... needless to say this may be a somewhat vainglorious hope, but it will still have room for a ton of stuff, some of which I hope to be moving from the rental storage space where it's been sitting since my family and I moved to our new house a little over one year ago.  If and when I make progress on this front, I'll post updates here... and perhaps alert the media!

Looks so CLEAN it almost makes me hesitate to cram it full of boxes of figures, terrain pieces, trees, paints, gaming aids, etc., etc., etc.

Almost... but not quite.


  1. Sorry to burst your bubble of hope, sir . . . but there is NEVER enough storage space.

    Even if it starts out that way "stuff" accumulates in excess of storage space.

    Still, it does look inviting for a good portion of your needs . . . but don't count on it surviving future expansions of your gaming materials.

  2. You are indeed blessed Sir, with a glorious store; looking forward to seeing the ‘after’ shot next. ;)

  3. Great space looking forward to seeing it fill up with figures!
    looking forward to seeing those conversions of the 1812 French into Brits.

    Best wishes
