http://www.frontlinewargaming.co.uk/ ) As you will recall the Rainham club will be putting on a WW1 East Africa Game at BROADSIDE next year (2013). As it will be a skirmish game I will probably only need 50 figures or less for both sides. So I collected a single IT miniatures pack of German Asakari. This will provide all the figures I will need for the German force. I must admit that I have never really looked at the figures before, having only a passing interest in WW1. The pack of 24 figures contains a nice mix of poses from marching to kneeling firing. 2 of the figures are European officer types while the other 22 are African Asakaris. For German Asakari my reading has revealed this to be the right ratio. Obviously on campaign this might change but on paper it is correct. I found all the figures well sculpted and nicely proportioned. There was absolutely no flash and very minimal molding lines so you can't say fairer than that. Overall I am very pleased with the figures and they have already been primed and shall go to paint today (once I have done some housework, which I have been putting off!).
Elsewhere on the paining table I have Apaches', Mechs, Zombie Hunters and Napoleonic ships. So I may have to start finishing a few things off soon. Thanks for reading. Have a good couple of days and I will post on the blog again on Wednesday. All the best Clint
