A Fist full of Mahdists
I did mention on Curt's Challenge that I was not happy with the patches on the Jibbehs. The feedback was that they were not as bad as I had first thought. It was also suggested that I might tome them down if I chose to. I painted a couple more yesterday and have gone for more muted colours and that suits me better.
There are still more to come though and I will need to buy some British and/or Egyptians to create a counter force. I originally got these for "Patrols in the Sudan" but following the game on Sunday I am thinking that Black Powder might also be applicable. Either way I will need more and more for an opposing force. But for now I shall carry on with what I own already before even thinking of buying more.
Elsewhere on the painting table I have stuff for the 20mm Arab Revolt game. I have come up with the idea that I can use these as well for A Very British Civil War. But based around the Suez Canal. As needles to say if Pre war Britain Fragmented British colonies, protectorates and other places where we had troops would also be affected. And the Suez Canal would become a hot spot as it was so vital for trade and communication. This is only in my mind at present so I shall say no more.
I am also struggling with my heroes entry. I know what I want, but am struggling with motivation. And have side-tracked myself and started a few more Madhists.... But only a few.
So that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and next update on Friday. Hope you have a good couple of days and as ever comments are welcomed. All the best Clint
