Chucking out time !

I bought this recently...
Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age

as a pdf from

I've had three trial games this week (on holiday), but I don't care for them at all.
Never mind they were only $5 and are still quite interesting as a read but the rules are very bland.

It did get me thinking though, and I decided to have a bit of a clean out of wargames stuff that is never used.

I binned all of my plastic Napoleonics and Colonials, mostly badly painted and quite unloved. My 2mm stuff went too as well as other bits and pieces.

My 15mm and 6mm Ancients got a reprieve as the bin got rather full.

I know it seems harsh but I seem to be playing and enjoying the Commands and Colors boardgames most of the time nowadays.


  1. I do get a kind of squamous feeling when people talk of 'binning' their unwanted soldiery. One feels there ought to be a good home for these gentry somewhere. In this part of the world, I seem to be the one who provides it, though others have benefited from my 'surplus to requirements' pile as well.

    Still and all, I can appreciate the need from time to time to 'rationalise' one's wargame inventory. My rationalisations usually fall short of a cull, though...

    1. I know exactly what you mean Ion.

      I did have to harden my heart when I did the deed, but I couldn't see anyone wanting the models that I ditched, we only have a small house and I could not keep stuff that in some cases hasn't been used for twenty years.
