|Pleased with how it turned out, I hatched a plan to add two more.|
However........ (I'll try to keep this short)
I had, for a good while been weakening over these http://empressminiatures.com/userimages/procart84.htm and had decided that to commit to that as a project I MUST sell off something first. I decided that my hurriedly (horridly) painted WW1 Battle Honours Turks done for a tournament I held when I had my old shop would be sacrificed to Ebay.
Then I read the TFL Christmas Special on CoCing up WW1 in which Rich Clarke comments that the early war, with predominantly rifles, would play a little vanilla. The idea went a bit cold. But by that time I'd already found the Turks out of the garage. I decided on a whim that if I tarted them up a bit they'd be OK. I may keep them (you know how that is...right?)
|After a few highlights & some tufts I thought they were "keepers"|
Which brings me on to the subject of anniversaries.
In 2015 we have (among others):
Evesham (Barons War 1265) 750 years AND local to me!
Agincourt (Hundred Years War 1415) 600 years
Waterloo (Napoleonic War 1815) 200 years
Gallipoli (WW1 1915) 100 years
Battle of Britain (WW2 1940) 75 years
Gulf War 25 years
There's a lot to choose from all playable with TooFatLardies rules!
