A New Barracks for Rosbif's Regiments

Mrs. R. had a day off work recently and spent part of it doing what she likes best, cruising the local op shops (opportunity shops, or charity thrift shops as some of you may know them). She came across this piece of mid-twentieth century interior design (not at all an authentic piece of shit) and thought it would be the perfect thing for me to store and display my soldiers.

I think you'll agree unlike the prat in the video, she got a bargain!

The cabinet with my complete collection

Anglo-Iberian infantry on the top shelf

Franco-Allied infantry on the middle shelf

Cavalry and artillery of both sides on the bottom shelf, plus various odds and ends like bullock carts and pack animals.

  2. That is wonderful! It's great to see the whole army on display. And might I say that you have a great wife, finding such a cool thing for you.
