Wargaming Warrior Women blogs on The Raft website

After FEMbruary’s focus on Warrior Women Miniatures, here’s an interesting website called The Raft by cpthandy with a Wargaming Warrior Women section  https://wargamingraft.wordpress.com/tag/warrior-women/

Well worth reading through the blogs on Warrior Women from ancient times through Waterloo


Harriet Tubman


and Soldaderos


to women of the Foreign Legion


as well as The Raft’s own commissioned sculpts / figures of female archers.


Fascinating stuff.

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

  1. Stop it now – how am I supposed to be getting on with my other so-called ‘important’ stuff?

    More seriously, this is really interesting. I reckon this Raft blog would have been a perfect addition to FEMbruary!


    1. The joy of gaming is that you can never spend enough (time) on something that is not very important in the first place. Hopefully Alex at Leadballoony and Imperial Rebel Ork will invite The Raft into next year’s FEMbruary fold.
