President Teddy Roosevelt's "Big Stick" Policy

Great clip from a really good movie.Enjoy.

Justified TV Series.

Last night watched the final episode of Justified season 1 and it finished with a cracker, if you have not seen this series I highly recommend it as the only western TV series on at the moment with Timothy Olyphant playing a US marshall with no problems pulling his gun and dropping you in the dirt, all the characters in the series are excellent and be aware it can be slow but this just adds to the goodness and makes for one of the best things on TV.

Painting for other people?

Spent my painting time over the weekend painting some 15mm napoleonic russian cavalry for a friend and will be for a little time longer as I am having difficulty painting them as the reference material is sparse and vague also the hating of 15mm figures is not helping as I now only paint 28mm for myself but the customer is nearly always right and I hope to finish them this week.
Watched the Sherlock Holmes TV series on BBC1 last night and really enjoyed it and look forward to the next two.

I love nearly all aspects of wargaming and I am lucky enough through a circle of wargaming friends and enthusiasts in England and also in the Republic of Ireland that I have played most periods some I liked more than others but that is not the point it is about playing the periods and enjoying the hobby and do not mind what people say but sometimes its about the winning(if you are lucky enough) and the bragging that follows.I enjoy books on wargaming and war and war/historical movies like the post before with the clip from Waterloo they get the juices flowing and the interest peaked and get you motivated when you are in the painting or wargaming doldrums that most wargamers can suffer from time to time.

The Battle of Waterloo - Charge of the British Heavy Cavalry

A great clip from a great movie.
