Capatin Darling Reporting For Duty...

Post by Captain Darling » Sat Mar 08, 2014 6:54 pm

Hi All,

Found this wargamming site so thought I'd better join up!

I have been wargamming since the late 1970s!

I started out with Airfix 1/72 stuff then graduated to 15mm figures and have recently started upgrading all my armies to 6mm.

My main areas of interest are the Napoleonic and ACW periods but love a bit of WW II action every now and then.

6mm is great for my main interestes as I can field large armies in a small space and the scale looks right to the eye.

I still have my Airfix and 15mm napoleonic figures and have bought some Perry 28mm figures but they are all for dispaly only now days.

I have a partner (she shuns my hobbies but gives me space!), a dog, three cars (Holden FJ ute, Volvo1800 & a Mitusbishi something or rather) and my partner has two cats (grrr!).

Anyway looking forward to visiting here regularly!

Cheers
Darling

Ha, that is a cracker, it did cross my mind after seeing the series, but a small angel on my shoulder said I had to behave, contrary to the devil on the other side. The series was a hoot and poor Darling was the target of a seriously hilarious tirade from Rowan. Oh weel appeares th moment is lost????

Hi,

I use 'Captain Darling' as my user name on all the forums I join it can add a bit of levity to my posts!

Feel free to call me darling, sweetie, honey or whatever takes your fancy...I draw the line at hot lips :)

Cheers
Darling
