|The German Marines, only one unit of the three would be needed !|
The Siege of the Legations in Peking (now Beijing) at the turn of the millennium 1900 have always fascinated me and were the object of a project that (like many) I've participated in, that sadly never came to fruition. Various friends decided to join and tasked themselves with providing the figures for one of the many legations present in the siege. For my part, I went with the Boxers, the German marines, the civilian 'Carving Knife; brigade and some sailors, whilst my #1 son provided the British RMLI , Other had US marines, Russians, Japanese and other sundries.
Here's my efforts
|Sailors (top three units) and the civilians at the bottom|
|Six units of Boxers|
|Another four 'proper' units, plus a host of musicians at the top !|
|Boxers flags, officers and a unit of Chinese regulars|
|The British RMLI|
|The wall, leaning up against my wall.|
Next week will be my 359th post on the 7th anniversary of this blog, but don't expect anything special (sorry).
Thanks for taking the time to visit.
