Be still my beating heart!!  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Ordered!!  ;D ;D ;D

Cannot wait for these ranges...... just up my street..... and then there's the VLW's stuff to come too!  o_o :D :D o_o

Auwehhhhh...too good to be ignored. :-*
Recommended ruleset?

Sharp Practice from Too Fat Lardies will be perfect..... I'd wait until the Second Edition pops out the printers though. In the meantime SP V.1 would more than suffice.

You could also use The Men Who Would Be King which will be out in the not too distant future, Triumph and Tragedy too.

Death in the Dark Continent and In the Heart of Africa could be adapted for the Cape Wars easily and there's Congo on the way too.

So, a lot of choices!!  ;) :D

Darrell (Feeling somewhat excited!)

As the Perry ad indicates, the pack in regulation uniform and uncovered forage cap will work just fine for the British Auxiliary Legion during the First Carlist War and can also be used to supplement the Empress Maori War range.

Ditto. I'm going to use CFB4 for 1st Carlist War BAL skirmisher and Portuguese Civil War Liberal Line infantry (some with British shakos) and volunteers.

 what a bloody hell..... >:(

an another Project to start ......and add to my mountain of lead   :?

Now, we just have to wait if the Perrys will give us a Maori war Range.
i know i 'm dreaming but i think it could be a fantastic range too.

With the canadian adventure range and the cap wars range as base, this step can be very close if they want to.... :'(

I just wish they would have done a First Burma War range.

Mine arrived yesterday, they are great sculpts with less 'flash' than usual though this may be because of the molds being new.....

Anyway, very pleased  :D
