Merry Christmas ( and its all Carlo's fault - him an his pyjamas)

First and foremost can I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope Santa brings you lots of nice things tomorrow and that you all have a great festive holiday.

I haven't posted as much as I wanted but that is primarily due to my other blog and the Crann Tara Miniatures being released at a far faster rate :)

However I aim to redress that next year and post more game reports next year.

I have been blown off course slightly by Carlo over on the 'With Pyjama's through the desert' blog.

He has spent time pulling together Peter Gilders Sudan rules and published them - 'The Sands of The Sudan'.
I couldn't resist buying a copy as I recall the original campaign series by Peter in Wargames World all those years ago!!!

I have always wanted to play Sudan and these fit the bill - my only restraint due to time, cost and space was I didn't go for 28mm so 15mm it is and in the last couple of weeks I've painted a horde (small one ) of Ansar etc and in two session a 60 figure British Battalion - its waiting for the bases to be finished. This means I can get this diversion under way in the very near future.

Just a few quick picks of the 'enemy' - still on the green board for the moment - sorry!!

All the figures are by Peter Pig - I have some Blue Moon to try - slightly taller but they should look ok.
See you next year.
