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 Napoleonic British Generals
These are mainly from Foundry. There are a couple of pairs of Elite miniatures Generals and ADCs.
In settling an island, the first building erected by a Spaniard will be a church, by a Frenchman a fort, by a Dutchman a warehouse, and by an Englishman an alehouse.
- FRANCIS GROSE, 1787
