Interesting read, thanks.

Empress's website is very behind the times, it is still claiming they have added a 28mm WW2 British link to the Mutton Chop British  (the  figures are available via the Mutton Chop link only).

[Edit] link issue above fixed.

These are on the site, but you have to know they are there.

I initially thought the journalist was Dan Starkey.

Strange IDs, A is rifles, B is rifles, LMG and RPG, the numbers indicate the hats.

On my list for Colours.

New post is up! The battle report from last night's game saw the Geordiestan Ambassador being ambushed on his way to Bazi City. A fun game with lots of action.

Late nights, empty weekends and a strong reliance on washes.

Thanks! I really like the challenge of getting my impressions out ASAP and painting the models just makes every article better

Thanks! I find working out a background and creating story threads is a great way to get players interested in the outcome of the battle. All the joys of a proper campaign but with less of the paperwork

Very nice. The interchangeable truckbed is a very good idea.

The buildings in the background where are they from? I looked but failed to find anything on your blog

Excellent review.
They look like they could be used in many periods.
That is always a plus,
