Lace 'n Big Hats is a diary of my lead adventures. The title comes from a remark of Martin Rapier, a member of TMP. Lace 'n Big Hats aggregates historical periods such as the Lace wars, Seven years war, Napoleonic Wars etc, which had this elaborate dress as one common factor. I like the phrase so much I am thinking of using it as a name for a rule set I am working on.
My historical interests are actually a bit broader, so I will be throwing in bits and pieces from WW2 and even the Modern era.

28mm Imperial Roman starter army from Warlord Games
This has been sitting around in various stages of completion for months. I fiddled with the metal on and off for most of that time. I wasn't satisfied with the figures. Then I looked back and saw that the shield designs didn't start off as dull as I had them. I'd screwed up and painted the shields red instead of white and this had dulled the other colours. So I had to paint those back in. Doh! Now they look OK.
