I should have guessed that you would know that story!   lol

Ayo Gorkhali! The Gurkhas are upon you!



5th Royal Gurkha Rifles, Frontier Force

Courage and Determination

Another splendid reinforcement to the burgeoning forces even now massing under the Earl for a purpose which, in all honesty, I’ve forgotten the nature of. No matter, it’s all fantastic and riveting and keeping me sane at a rather stressful time.

Incidentally, is there any truth in the rumour that the fragrant Miss Joanna Lumley, noted thespian and charming adornment to many a favoured drawing-room, is even now on her way out to give comfort and guidance to her beloved Gurkhas...?

D’Emfore

Dear Mr. Trotsky, or may I call you Leon? I am happy to inform you that the lovely Joanna is in transit as we speak on her way to Peshawar to support her beloved Gurkhas as they set off on a daring mission to rescue Chippy Minton.

In other news, many thanks to Empress Miniatures for once again, delivering excellent and very speedy customer service. Needing some snipers for my Basmachi forces, I made an order on their website just after 14:00 on Monday and they dispatched it by 14:30! Arrived today, safe and sound, many thanks.

The first of the Basmachi snipers. These will hopefully cause some problems for the other players.

Looks more like "Are you sure this is the way?" to me!

Cheers, madman.

The Krasnyy Sotnya (Red Hundred), Trotsky’s personal armoured train guard are coming along. 9 painted and 6 more riflemen to be done. This will be a 15 person unit.

Ivanka Kozyrnyy, the famous Russian explorer will be the guide. Ivanka has spent many years exploring Jhamjarhistan and its surroundings, secretly on behalf of the Cheka. She is a close personal friend of Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky, or ‘Iron Felix’ as she refers to him. She was part of the original party which discovered Scythian artefacts and remains at the dig site outside Djelibad.

I like the painting for the leather look.  The bloody red spear point of the revolution.  The workers of Jhamjar can rejoice in their imminent freedom. ;)

Thanks, trev. I am pleased with the way the red came out.

Indeed, comrade! Peace, land and bread to the Jhamjarhistanis!

Completed some diggers for Lord Creosote's archaeological dig, just outside Djelibad. Is it possible that the Golden Jhamjarh of Sticky Gods may be found here? We must wait and see...

They’re a likely looking crew - I wouldn’t bet against them.

I must say, I’m surprised you had time to post today what with your exciting prize-winning achievements to celebrate and all.....

It has been an exciting day here at Snapcase Hall. Much-Piddling village is in on the news and the villagers are agog with excitement!

I have dispatched Old Scrotum (the ancient and wrinkled Snapcase family retainer) down to the wine cellar to bring up the Dom Pérignon for a little celebration later on. Mrs. Bridges the cook, is preparing a celebratory dinner of Strasburg Pie, roast beef, a pair of fowls, chops, a glazed tongue, a soused hog's face and salamagundy. Then for dessert we shall have sillabub, flummery, Spotted Dog and a Drowned Baby followed by ratafia biscuits and coffee. All of course accompanied by sherry, claret, port, and Madeira.

"A glass of wine with you, sir!"
