Gents,

In many of the photos on my blog and specific to this period are the distinctly 'aussie' gumtree. For those that are interested, in this post I show where I get my trees from and a few snaps of the types available.

...this may be of use...

Ahem. One more reminder: After all the trouble in the past this thread has a zero-tolerance policy on baiting, argumentative behaviour and attempted derailments. Be they from the left or the right of the political spectrum.


If you are posting on this thread, have a long, hard think about what you are saying before you hit "post", or chances are your post won't be around for long.

...that table is rather nice isn't it...I can't lay claim to the mat, that belongs to Mac, and I believe it's had so many positive comments it might be getting its own Instagram page... :D :D

...the terrain is mine however!  ;)

The action fought was documented on Mac's blog and worth a read and for some more eye candy. Here it is incase you missed it...

Gents,

In this post I’ve knocked up the first of a good many armed civilian settler miniatures to paint for the Napoleonic era. There aren’t any specific figures for the Frontier Wars but the dress of the day followed European/North American trends so these figures will fit the bill nicely.

As there are few if any shots of these figures online they may proves useful for those looking for these types of minis.

Cheers

Happy W

Gents,

Recently a book was published by Dr. Stephen Gapps - The Sydney Wars. I meant to give it a review on the blog but things slipped away.

Nevertheless, there is a very good review of it online which I'll post a link to here - worth a read of an excellent book. For anyone interested in Australian Frontier Conflict it's a 'must buy'.

Cheers
