Remember the old warcabinet (first as a website in the days before blogs existed, and then for a very short period as a blog)? Now, I've decided it should return… please note the web address has changed.

So, what am I going to put here?
Well, first it will be a place to share my progress on my latest project, more of which anon.
Second, I will be posting up galleries of all my previous collections, just as a set of archives.
Finally, it will be a place where I can post some battle reports, especially when the new project gets to that stage.

So, what  can you expect?
In a couple of days, I’ll introduce the new project, and show some of the steps I’ve already taken.
But, just be sure, I haven’t got very far … yet. In fact one of the exciting notions for me about starting this blog right now is that you are joining me at ground zero… I hope you might like to follow the steps, and even use this as a pace-maker for your own project if you fancy starting afresh too, and I’ll be delighted to hear of your progress and any comments.

here is one of the command pieces for my new project: Prinz Albrecht of Pils-Holstein.
And before you label this as yet another one of those "imagi-Nations", think again... and more on that next time.
Suren figures, with some conversion work (Prinz Albrecht's tricorne is scratchbuilt, and the standard bearer has a scratchbuilt cloak and a John Ray designed head). Flag is hand painted on linen and depicts the arms of Pils-Holstein.


  1. Love it! Cannot wait to see more.

    Best Regards,


  2. Excellent - added to my reader.

  3. I have added a link to the "Emperor vs Elector" group blog's "Other Blogs of Interest" list.

    Jim, I've got so much to tell about the new project I almost don't know where to start... it's a long story, but it's all coming right at you over the coming weeks!
    It's good to be back...

  8. Jeff... thanks for adding War Cabinet to the Emperor vs Elector pantheon. Much appreciated.
