Infantry in just two sessions (about three hours)
All the figures are from Old Glory and with just three packs of them I have enough figures to make up four units of twenty figures each based singly for use with "The Sword and the Flame" rules .
|The smallest tactical infantry unit of twenty figures|
All westernised units follow this pattern, whilst most 'native' types have only a single leader figure).
|A 'company' of two units|
The second Leader figure for the two units could be the colour bearer but I just added him as an extra.
|Flag is for the frst company, blue with the arabic numeral '1' on it|
|Two companies forming a battalion.|
|The third and fourth comany flags, and the Khedive's flag iirc.|
My flags came from "Warflags" and re=coloured to suit my purposes.
All these took a lot longer to complete than I'd first anticipated, mostly due to the numerous hospital and clinic appointments I've had to attend (all thankfully with no adverse results).
With the single routine appointment this week, I shouldn't have more until August !!
That's it then for this week, on the painting front I'm having a break from the Sudan in favour of adding six more explorers to face the dangers of 'Jimland' before returning and facing the three units of British left to do.
No game this week, but next week I'll probably post about my mate's second adventure into 'Jimland'.
As a footnote (of sorts) the photographs in this post were taken with my new camera and magically transferred without wires to my computer (though it doesn't make the cameraman any better).
Thanks for taking the time to visit, hopefully you found something of interest and of course, as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
