The Golden Sheik of the Pashtuns
« on: May 23, 2022, 05:21:49 PM »


As mysterious as his sudden appearance on the Northwest Frontier, and, with an intimate knowledge of the British Raj, the Golden Sheik is the gravest threat to the British Empire along the North West Frontier. His gravitas and presence in bringing together the most dangerous tribes - the Afridi's, the Waziri's, the Mahmud's - has placed a price on his head throughout the Region. Imperial Russia, with the breakout of the Anglo-Russian War, has taken noticed . . .

What great fun!  The Golden Sheikh himself is a very finely painted figure.  In fact, they are all wonderfully painted figures, full of period character.  The Major Rostov's "metal man" is fantastic.

Reminds me of the good old days drooling over the Major General Tremorden Reddering's site :)

Nicely done :)
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

The Major General Tremorden Reddering site is one of the all time greats and really got me going with Colonial Gaming and Victorian Sci Fi and Lost Worlds.

My good friend Randy was well and truly committed to gaming the same, with me a timid bystander, when we both discovered and had many delightful visits to the site.

After seeing "The Bronze Bunny of Ouargistan," I began to think there might be a small place for me as well.

I feel, DRB, you are truly doing your part as well.

Thank you.

Doug
