I have Stenbock to thanks for this lastest diversion after seeing what can be done with 6mm Skirmish i have decided to have a go at Peter Pigs Patrols in the Sudan in 6mm. Here are my first offerings:

NICE!


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

Have finished the last 11 bases of British Infantry, this time in Khaki so I have now completed enough for sections for PITS so now onto my Dervishes, I am starting with 8 bases of riflemen and then onto the horde of spear and sword wielding Ansars

Very nice, but it is making me think of using these for home service units for some 1880s what if?

Have finished 8 bases of riflemen  (2 per section) for my initial  Mahdist force. Have done them with their colourful patched Jibbeh.

Real life keeps getting in the way but next up 30 bases of sword and spear weilding Ansar......

A nice growing collection. Really like those Mahdist riflemen.

After nearly a month I have finished my conversions of ACW skirmishers to a section of Jolly Jack Tars for Patrols in the Sudan. Since starting this madness I have spoken to Peter from Baccus at Salute and he confirmed it would be at least 18 months before the colonial range would get a revisit so It was well worth a touch of insanity. I am quite pleased how they turned out and will add a bit of variety to my British Patrols in the Sudan force.
