 Hi Gents,

Been to busy of late to post due to house renovation. We bought the new place last year and had expected to be in by now but ground conditions for the extension have delayed the move until end of next month. On the plus side most of the house is complete the wargames room just needs the final cabinets put in place and doors fitted to the table.

One of the reasons for the move was to have a room big enough to set up my siege of Acre display.

11 cabinets so far on the wall I have moved the shelves closer to fit in more figures I need another 26 shelves to fill these cabinets.
Dave has completed a similar set up for my siege of Malta collection I will pic this up in a few weeks

The display is 4000mm x 1500mm the table is slightly larger.
I will collect this  Malta set up next month.
St Elmo the ships have still got a load of flags to add should be very colourful.
I'm hoping I can merge both set ups for a larger Malta set up.

The terrain was made by Dave Marshal a number of years back these little Adobe buildings were made by Paul Darnell.

View from end of table.

Dave Jarvis has painted the figures for both collections.

City of Acre walls.

Still work to be done to the bases.

Loads of figures to add character to the town.

The Saracen's still have a bit to go to make up the strength.

Once the move has happened normal posting will resume.

Best wishes


  1. Lucky! We all aspire to have a hobby room like this one day and you have one. Hats off.

  2. I love that you moved in order to have room for all your toys ;)

  3. Everything from the figures, terrain, cabinets and room all look fantastic Willie.
    I think I would be tempted to let the rest move in next month and set a camp bed up in the games room.

  4. Gorgeous looking scenery and fantastic figures, lovely!
    Best Iain

  5. Oh my goodness me! I love this post, everything looks amazing!

  6. Just superb, some of the best terrain I have seen!

  7. Willie yo must be very proud and excited to be able to get the collection out like that. Would be wonderful to see up close.

  8. As a Maltese gamer it’s always feels great to come across occasional references to the 1565 siege of Malta in popular blogs such as this one. And congrats for that fantastic games room. Five star!

  9. Gents thanks foe all your comments.

  10. Great to see you back posting, Willie! You had a great set-up before, but this new game-room... it's a whole other level!

    Your siege of Acre terrain is amazing, and no doubt the new Siege of Malta stuff will be just as good. I really look forward to seeing all that terrain on your new table used for epic Medieval & Renaissance siege games with naval elements included!

  11. An outstanding table. I wish I could be there to game on it.
