It might seem strange that the first pic is of a facade of a "Hollywood" fort, but this is an integral part of the game "Pony Wars".
|Opening gates !|
I 've used my 15mm ACW collection of buildings as stand-ins for the game and initially used waggons, artillery and a host of other stand-ins for other things.
|The opposition - the Injuns !|
|Close up - looking a bit worse for wear|
|Stored in three different rooms, and five 'boxes; hasn't helped.|
|More Imjuns - including some on foot!|
|Villagers to be slaughtered|
|Some of the extras needed, cattle, buffalo, a stagecoach and an Indian Village|
|All can feature in the game!|
|Six horse stage coach and tipis scratch built from paper clips and clay|
|Townsfolk, Ranchers, Rustlers, Buffalo Hunters - a cast of thousands (ok hundreds)|
|One of a half a dozen waggons for the game|
|Some of the civilians that will need rescuing|
|One of the homesteads|
|More US forces that are needed, infantry artillery, scouts etc. it just goes on and on|
|The gatling detachment|
It's a game that's not seen around shows these days (hardly surprising considering the amount of preparation that's required) , but a very enjoyable romp that I have many happy memories of !
The 15mm figures etc. came from many sources, Irregular, Minifig (iirc), Skytrek and probably others.
That's it then for this week, another that has seen me do absolutely nothing in regards to the hobby (save for doing this blog), but on a good note, I think I have finally caught up with my reading of others' blogs.
