Terrific stuff.  Like seeing stills from the Cromwell film of the 70s.   :)

You gotta hand it to the good Captain, when he sinks his teeth into a chosen period he really goes to town! That's one helluva set up. People are very jealous! Enjoy the games!
Warriors dreams, summer grasses, all that remains

I was lying on the floor and shooting the picture upwards...
Apparently thatís how they shot all Sylvester Stalloneís movies too ;)
Also the Semper Opera in Dresden was shot for a beer advertisement in this way. I was so dissapointed when I saw the Opera in real. Ask a guy from Dresden if the original Opera is hidden in another part of the town (He shouted something like "Typical guy from west germany!!!"). So next time at BLAM we all walk on knees except Nick, ok?

That's the thing most of us frequent visitors dream of. You're living the wargamer's dream.

When I look at some of the Units and scenes depicted in these photos , Iím immediately reminded of the illustrations the great Rick Scollins had published in the wargaming magazines of the 80s and 90s. I canít think of a higher praise than that .

Thanks gents - those are very generous words, thank you :)

Yes, I well remember the late, great Rick Scollins' gorgeous ECW paintings in Military Modelling. I kept them all for years - the pages with his pictures, not the magazines. Wonder what happened to them? Lost in a house move somewhere along the way I guess.
His art was certainly a strong formative influence on me, so maybe a little of the Scollins aesthetic did rub off along the way :)
There was a man who died much too young - only in his mid-forties I believe. A great loss to illustration. His passions for folklore, folk music and dance, and English history were the same weird mix as mine.
