While the weather has relented, my schedule has not, so I just bring you a small update today. But progress is progress! My first game of Black Powder highlighted a major issue with the collection: a lack of command stands. Something to urgently be rectified, starting with this chap.
Most of my command stands will have two or three miniatures on them, I should have a collection of foot and mounted minis to make enough for each force. But I thought this chap deserved one of his own, my favourite sculpt of the Perry mounted command pack, facing down the Mahdist hordes with a stoney stare, stiff upper lip and Enfield revolver. Anyone fancy the honour of giving him a name?
In today's parlance: what a badass
I felt he deserved to be proudly dressed in red rather then the usual grey serge. Eventually I'd like to add a whole unit of British infantry in red. Or highlanders, if I can face the tartan again...
Also, this marks my 200th post on this little blog over the past 30 months, not bad given I go in fits and starts of posting!
