An irregularly updated blog whose purpose is to chronicle the development of my various wargaming projects, but primarily my foray into the joys of colonial wargaming set in the Sudan

Some sad news here yesterday, as Tigsie, my lovely old cat of 14 years, passed away. We got Tigsie on Election Day in 1997 along with a ginger tabby girlie cat, so we called them Tony and Cherie. Tony's name didn't stick though and he became Tigger, or Tigsie very quickly.
Tigsie as a kitten
He was a soppy old stick. If I'd had a bad day at work or whatever and was having a mope on the bed or the sofa he'd always come and snuggle up to cheer me up.

Unlike the Sudan Kitties he had no desire to eat my Egyptian Lancers, nor (like my first cat, many years ago) a taste for the topmasts and rigging of 1/1200 Napoleonic ships.
