Drawn to the left….

That most scary thing awaits, four days away with the friends of die Fuhrer. I’ve reached that point in life when it’s the “wives and girlfriends” who have chosen the New Year break. It’s a very scary time for a sensitive soul like myself. Thankfully I’ve a game planned for next Saturday. In the meantime, feel free to pick from the above list to decide the official Despertaferres New year resolutions!

Happy New Year!

The wild ramblings of an infamous wit and wargames guru. One of nature's true gentlemen who devotes his time to the care of his two sons, i.e. watching episodes of Peppa Pig together, and recreating great moments of military history using toy soldiers. Currently a leading light in The Collectivo Despertaferres wargames and duelling association who meet regularly at Firestorm Games ( formerly Ali Baba's Carpet Warehouse). Find me also on Facebook "Despertaferres"!


  1. Dear Auntie Mike …
    What should I do? I keep dreaming of Hussite war wagons – crewed by scantily clad busty young women. It’s been happening all over the Xmas period … how do I stop it?
    Worried of Bristol
    “a man reduced to a single instinct: paint soldiers!”

    (PS: the war wagons are an ongoing occurance & quite reassuring, it’s the young women that are causing the concern)


  2. You to mate …
    Can we drag you & your merry cardiff elves into the horrors of 6mm sci-fi – as this years Slimbridge FWC Boot Camp looks like it will be another roller-coaster weekend ride of blasters, pulse-cannons, matter-transporters and aliens (some a very odd & disturbing shade of pink – talk to Steve “nothing effeminate about having a pink army” Price on that one) with armies small enough to fit into an empty cigar box …
    Gooo on! you know you want to … why not start the year as you mean to go on, another new period to buy for!!!
    And this time you can create and paint up your very own 6mm WarRig too boot – V8 – I will see you in Valhalla!
    Happy New Year

  3. War-rig, plasma cannons, maitainence payments….you West Country boys are the future. Send me the details and I’ll propose it to the central organ of the Despertaferres equality and entertainment sub-committee!
    Happy new year ( Julian calendar , not Tithemas)
