What a lovely game -- well painted miniatures and a lot of nice terrain in a small area!

Does anyone recognize the manufacturer(s) of the "Indigo Planters"?

Thanks!

This guy does...

...even more pleased to see some Boot Hill Miniatures Texians transferred to India. ;) :)


The fellow in the airpipe helmet isn't one of their number, though, he comes from an Indian Mutiny range. Not entirely sure which one off the top of my head, though.

I am interested to know more about how you think the smaller table worked better for SP? Was it just that it was quicker and focused decision making?

Thanks, Plynkes and Romark.  I recognized that most of the British figures and Sepoys were from Mutineer (I have a few of them but have recently picked up a lot more Iron Duke).  It is the chaps in the top hats that interest me...

Then you need to check out the excellent Boothill miniatures site and look under Texans,you'll find them all there :)
You could also check out the Empress Miniatures site too and look under the New Zealand War banner,they have pack of militia in civilian clothes and top hats you may also like and be used in Mutiny games :)

Great looking game.
One of my favorite periods to play.

Romark,

Thank you for the reference to Boot Hill miniatures -- I never would have thought to look there.  I have been pondering using some figures from the Maori Wars range... but had overlooked the militia (I was considering some of the sailors but was not expert enough to know if they would work for the Mutiny).

So thanks again!

Thanks you for the kind words.

Malmute: I hope you don't object to your figures excursion to India, as their next appearance will be as Illinois militia, fighting Black Hawk.

ItalWars: the matt is a PVC table top cover with the "Cloth Side" textured with caulk and flock. Can post some how-to pictures if you are interested. You can also see the matt in a different setting in Happy Wanderer's posts, or here: http://macslittlefriends.blogspot.com.au/2018/01/the-battle-of-parramatta-road-1816.html

Goliad: We that playing on a small table took about 45 minutes off the playing time, but also really helped focus the action. One of the real reasons we did it is to take away the agony when you roll all '1's for movement. We all hate that.

Chicklewis: I takes great courage for a man to air his dirty laundry in public.

it'd sure be good to see a 'how to' for the mat if possible - one of the best looking boards I've seen for a while  :-* :-*, and I'm not understanding how it's done from the mention above.

Very happy to see them in action in any corner of the globe.

I for one would very much welcome seeing how the mat is made as I'm considering making one myself.

Very nice and natural looking terrain!
I would be also very interested!

OK. I did my best at writing a blog on how I made that mat.
