Changes to the Blog

Due to the Photobucket apocalypse I am in the process of changing the blog to a new hosted site, with a different approach to posting pictures. I hope to have this sorted before too long, and am indebted to Andy (Count Belisarius) for his help.

Hopefully the Medetian Wars will be back in full swing soon.

In the meantime I've been pretty busy painting, basing and even playing (a very big 18th century game with others from the LAW forum). I aim to catch up on all this with posts on the new blog soon.

Photobucket Fun

I am having to review how I manage pictures on this blog in view of recent Photobucket policy changes. Watch this space.

A Few More Colonials

I wanted to finish off the rest of the figures I'd prepared before and since Ayton, and here they are. These will be seeing some action (hopefully soon) in my 1830s Medetian colonial setting, using the Sharp Practice rules.

First, some RSMs kindly donated from Andy's cavernous spares box. Two will naturally be Big Men (ie. leaders) for Sharp Practice.

The last of the Gripping Beast Arabs:

Artillery crew converted from Gripping Beast Arabs:

Finally, an officer for my Fleurian artillery (Victrix plastic):

Granted, not an original post name.

At the AMG weekend a few people brought along things to sell/dispose of and I picked this up from Paul for a few quid. It'll fit in nicely with my non-specific colonial setting, either as an operational vessel for the locals or just as a nice piece of scenery. I gave it a dust, added the masts, and repainted the black bits. And that's it, ready to go. :)
