Any swordsmen coming? Hand-weapons I mean, as opposed to just spearmen? I have no idea what is appropriate. I just received my order from Steve Barber - very nice figures, though slightly taller than I expected. I may actually use them for the purpose intended!  ;) The other option is as proxies for Tekumel, trimming off the muskets!  ;D

Yes Steve will be working on a villager armed with sword and axe, which I have just commissioned and there will be further swordsmen

Glad to preview a photo of a Siamese Musketeer standing firing armed with slung Dha sword , designed for a fellow Pagoda addict who is jointly involved with the project . Designed and sculpted by Steve Barber

Sir Barnaby Rye-Hammond, your wish for a swordsman has been realised, the following green represents a Siamese/Laos villager armed with both sword and an axe called a Mak.

Scary when you think that villages fought dressed as above, the engagements were savage....watch the film Bang Rajan
Which is based on fact !

I was asked if Gringos40 Tonkin figures were suitable opponents for this range of figs, the simple answer is Yes if one is selective from the Black Flags and Vietnamese. There were several wars between the Siamese and the Vietnamese were allies to the Laos during the first have of the 19thC.

Looks great! Hopefully more to follow as you expand the range. I really like the sampling I purchased back in the April sale. Will be expanding my collection as expenses allow. And there is another local gamer I am going to show them to, only we haven't been able to coordinate a game for several weeks now.

Every Siamese or Lao village needed their own Monk

I hope people remember that these fierce-looking Siamese just don't win wars; depressing history, though entirely congruent with their performance as students and administrators. Rule 1: Don't learn to swim until you've fallen in the water. Rule 2: Complain as you go under for the third time that "to swimmin difficun".
The laws of probability do not apply to my dice in wargames or to my finesses in bridge.
