Lovely work there Jack. Soudan is an interest of mine as well but your passion for the period really shows. Perhaps you could be the first attack on a train in the 1880s. Mhadist uses explosive to derail and attack. Could make a great game.

Company B, great to hear all of that. I would certainly buy a few of those trains etc. I live in Scotland and look forward to the plans for Great Escape carrying stock.  I think you will find there is a market for such models and good luck with your rather varied workload!

Thank you!

It’s a rich seam for modelling projects, and I am looking forward to the modelling the armed train … but everything takes sooooo long to do! Certainly attacks on the railway and strongpoint should provide interesting scenarios.

Cheers

Re: Company B trains resculpted and new Sudan Engine

Progress on the turn of the century Sudan style Engine.  It's not a specific Engine, but it's meant to somewhat resemble the earlier Steam Locomotives used in Africa.

Another new engine.  This was a special request from Bob Murch for his upcoming Mexican Pulp game at Enfilade this month.  This is based off the narrow gage engines used in Mexico at the turn of the century.  This will be in the lineup along with its matching coal tender at enfilade as well, along with some new rail crews and engineers by Bob Murch.

These are all lovely. I've drafted a yet-unreleased mid Victorian skirmish rules set and was planning to write some scenarios involving assassinations and counter-espionage in 1850's Europe. I guess I could use the 1890's locomotive for that era too?

What I especially had in mind though was a VIP / head of state private railroad carriage where the Archprince of Ruritania could be travelling with his mistress when the evil anarchists attempt to do away with him and our stalwart heroes have to save the day and thwart them. What amount of effort would that involve?

Gosh that is a machine of immense beauty can see why someone would get stoked over such an engine.
