Yes, I know I have been quite of late – a combination of illnes (flu type, nothing serious), building work at Monty HQ and so it goes on. However, here goes with some more eye candy!!

First off, some RN chaps from the NZ wars:

TooFatLardies have launched a project to get wargames books into schools to support the future growth of our hobby. Full details are at:

This really is a great idea and one worthy of all our support. I have very fond memories of gaming at school and Monty’s will be helping out in any way we can with this. Please support TFL as well.

Monty 1

Well, here we all are, the first instalment of the Rat Report – the Blog of Monty’s Wargaming World (! And a very big welcome to everyone. I shall try to post on a regular basis and reply to comments, but I am sometimes so busy that time will be at a premium, so please do bear with me. However, I will try to post at least once a week when I am not on holiday.

I should also start with some ground rules!

  1. EVERYONE is welcome here – gamer, nearest and dearest of gamers, beginners, experienced, the lot, you are all very welcome. Although I might have to think about any cats that come along!!
  2. Tolerance and respect are the order of the day, please behave with civility.
  3. There are no stupid questions and I do really mean that, so please ask away – we won’t judge.

I will also be talking about products on this Blog as I experience them, the opinions are entirely mine and I have been known to be wrong! I will be using a Rat Rating out of 10, but please be clear that 10s are only awarded to me (Monty!!) – perks of the job!
