Paul - Looks simply wonderful old chap! Absolutely Spiffing as Phil observed.  8)

May I enquire?

  • Is the Gunboat one from the UK Chaps on EBay who also do the big long cargo paddle-steamers and little motor boats? I ask as I have one of them too and yours looks very heavily modified and detailed as a friend of mine observed?
  • I would very much appreciate knowing where you got the large cargo items (especially the tarpaulin wrapped cargo objects and the long crates), and the lovely looking individual barrels of various types and the piles of junk/goods (e.g. in photo 3) - I suppose you are going to tell me you hand-made them all yourself?  :o

Jolly good show!

    Are the houses bought or built?

    The buildings were purchased from Oshiro from his stock items but he made us some seperate ones aswell. We have 20 and can place them anywhere on the board for a different look.

    CORRECT

    OH NO[/list] The majority of the items we think are from a firm called Ainsty and the barrels are a mix of Rackham/GW (seige defenders) etc.

    Hope that helps
    Thanks for all the kind comments I will post on here again  :)

    Games like this are what wargaming is all about IMHO.

    Gotta have good company too.

    Brilliant stuff  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*.

    I thought I recognised it! I have one in my 3-vessel Nile gunboat fleet - and a friend of mine who is on here (6mmfan) is helping me out with my backlog of terrain and stuff, and is painting it up my gunboats for me including 1 like yours (the other 2 being the John Jenkins African River Steamer & the Old Glory Safieh) - so it's given us some extra ideas about detailing.  ;)

    Cool - Thanks Mate - I shall investigate...   :)

    BTW - have you posted a game using this terrain pictured somewhere else previously (last year or so)? I could have sworn I've seen the town/village with the wood surface before somewhere?

    Anyway Jolly Good Effort Mate, Jolly Good!  8)

    Most impressive for such a small board but fitting in well with the board sizes that LOTOW recommends/alludes to. Gives me thoughts on what to do with the ever growing group of Chinese Pirates I have. On Wed I got the Chinese Tong group from the former West Winds Cowboy Wars range, now OG I believe.  :P
    Cheers,

    I am surprised Jimbibbly has not been to comment on this thread, he is Oshiro.[/list]

    Great looking game & board. I just love seeing anything with 19th century Chinese. I think that is probably my favorite period & theme. Like your avatar too BTW.
