Hi Lon - I've not been on the forum much recently but I see the Dogs Meat General still has some pretty nasty people working for him, and the ones working against him are even worse.

I can see why the camera was shaking as you ran away. Maybe fighting retreat would be a better way of putting it.
Cheers

Thanks Fellas! I am currently exercising my alter-ego, Fu Manchu, in the Samarkand Imperative game so I have been moving a little slower with the painting. I think that an equestrian unit will be next and that will be a first for me so it might take a while. To tide you over, here are some poorly shot photographs of the Dogmeat Generals AOR. I blame it on the cordite and shrapnel in the air, but I always do, don't I lol

Just another town in rebellion


A detachment of the Dogmeat General's Railroad Police puling guard duty over his logistics column


An assault going in


Some embittered taxpayers


If you find yourself in the Dogmeat General's provinces, keep your head down, pack some heat and some French letters, pay your taxes, and everything will be fine!

 lol lol lol

And yes, the nefarious veil of Fu is currently being spread over the unsuspecting citizens and travellers of Samarkand...

All limitations are self imposed.  Work hard and dream big.

I have been remiss in posting on the Dog Meat General's provinces. Part of that time was taken up in leading Fu Manchu to total victory and mystic domination in the city of Samarkand, part of the time was spent dealing with a pirate outbreak in the South China Sea and the Dutch East Indies, and then there was all that work on Borneo and the Dayak menace there...……..   I am currently turning back to the Dog Meat General's AOR (unless one of my buddies gets off his posterior and finally decides to enter into the anti-pirate fray in the South China Sea, though I imagine his steamer's bottom has rusted out through inaction). Here is a glimpse of a (freshly painted) store, storehouse, and orchard in the province in the sweet season of early summer when everything looks possible.,,,,

…..before the heartbreak of late summer floods and droughts, harvest time tax collectors, and winter bandit season. By next spring the owner will be lucky if he still retains a partially burned building and a couple of well hidden sacks of rice. That's the way it is in the provinces.

don't think you can fool us that easy Fu!  There's more, much more, to these than meets the eye!

Time moves slowly these days in the Dogmeat General's area of responsibility. The Tong have been interfering with the 3rd Extraordinary Emergency Tax supporting fallen singsong girls. Still the funds will be raised for this important social cause! Here is a candid (and quite covert) photo of a back alley Tong conclave.



Here is a glimpse of one of the prime economic engines of the Dogmeat General's regime. These wharves allow the smuggling…errr export of various...…err commodities that allow the glorious and enlightened reign of the dear leader. The smoky, grease stained tugboat is a recent, previously owned, addition to the General's fleet. (The previous owners donated it for the greater good in exchange for retaining various appendages) I can guarantee you that there are only broken dreams and empty gin bottles to be found on the interior. as it is searched daily for contraband.

Please reassure the Dogmeat General that I have made a large contribution to this worthy cause.   ;)   ;)
