New packs August
« on: August 26, 2019, 04:20:16 PM »
A few new packs. An unusual collection.

1. Tirraliers Senegalese  for Les. African infantry.
2. Woodland Indian heads
3. Woodland Indians with bows for Robert
4. German EW WW2 command . A re-make of the pack.

Also resin broadside markers. A pack of 8 for £6. Enough for 8 ships in a game.  Nigel will be producing these.

Next working on Union Generals.  probably followed by the next phase in Montagnards for Vietnam.

Thanks Martin - it's good to know what's in the pipeline.

Looking forward in particular to the next Vietnam instalment!

Great Martin, i'll have to order two sets of broadside markers.

A very eclectic collection of models.

Senegalese are definitely interesting.  Great idea.

Thanks Martin, the Senegalese look superb, but...
...my French chums an I were a bit confused by glancing at the picture, because they look far more like north-african troops (Tirailleurs Algériens-Marocains / Algerian-Moroccan Tirailleurs), rather than Senegalese ; are we wrong ?..

They are Les' choice. He wanted the African ones. The European theatre ones are quite different I agree. They should paint up nice though :).

I am intending to use them for a regular force in Morocco for PITTS.

So, going to form a groupe mobile, combined arms formations of regular and irregular infantry, cavalry and artillery and then use Berbers and similar for the navities.

Sounds good Les, will you have them finished for the games weekend?

Um!
I have not sorted all the figures yet, I was intending to get my order to Nigel for collection that weekend and have them painted for the following year.
I need to look through the heads and figure ranges to create the force.
So it will be regular infantry, Algerian and Senegalese Tirailleurs or French Foreign Legion troops, a squadron of Algerian Spahis, a battery of mountain artillery  , a section of Hotchkiss machine guns and a mule train for supplies. With some goumiers, irregular tribal auxiliaries all under a French senior officer.

Have I missed something?  Does Peter Pig now have a French Foreign Legion range?  Would be nice, especially if it includes some character packs somewhat inspired by the Old West character packs.  March or Die, Beau Geste, the Legionnaire all suggest figures - oh, and maybe from the Mummy movies, too!  Off to investigate where the Senegalese are hiding.

I was going to look at the eighth army with head swaps for some legionnaires.

Right ho. Thought you were talking about the Beau Geste type of Legionnaire.
