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.

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.
