My Colonial Troop

Here they are.   Not a hundred percent finished.  But I wanted to should that I am really painting and modeling.    
Personally I like the warlord plastic figures over the Perry Brother plastic.  But if I could afford it I would only by Perry's lead figures.

Warlord's Colonial troops

Hope you like the troops.  Now back to the dungeon to paint all the white belts.

37mm Pom Pom for MHBK

During the 2nd Boer war it seems that both the British and Boers used in combat a 37mm  Pom Pom gun.  Wonder these could be incorporated in the rules.  




Okay Anton...  Can these be used in the campaign?

Boer War Block houses for MWHBK Part 3

Here are some plans for the South Africa British block houses.   From reading about the block house, the building would have 7 to 8 soldiers and one sgt.    There would be four supporting block houses near by 1000yds.  An Officer would be in charge of the four block house.  Hope to provide more detail later.  All the house would have a barbwire field in front of the them to stop the boer's from getting to close to the build...  
 Now for the good stuff the plans.

Boer War Block houses for MWHBK Part2


Here is a large Fort called Jensenville.  The Fort you will see had many firing ports.  An complex interior of fortified walls.   At one time I believe the interior had a corrugated roof.   This seem the these iron roof help make the Fort and Block house fire proof.   Tomorrow, I will post the plans for these buildings.   Most Block house are 20' x 20' square two to three stories high. 



















Boer War Block houses for MWHBK Part 1

There is a upcoming campaign coming with the group I game with.  It is going to be VSF themed campaign.  Each country will have forts an economy. Plus raided each others territory for goodies.  I have been searching for proper period Forts.   It turns out that google is my friend.  During the second Boer war the British build around 400 fort across the territory.   From small squad size to full blown Forts.   This what I found.  Now I got figure out how to make them.
