HMMM VSF British are heading my way.

Oh no, I couldn't resist....  VSF British trooper...  Future  Campaign?  Perfect for IHMN.  They also have bloody walkers too.......  I'm weak now broke....


Chaps who would like to be King (Artizan design miniatures)

 As everyone knows you can't play any colonial or VSF with out great leaders.   Seam Connery, Peter O'Toole inspired in their roles in The man who would king.   It was a great movie in 1975 on the big screen.  Peachy Carnehan (Micheal Caine), Daniel "Danny" Dravot (Connery) and  the Gurkha soldier who goes by the name of Billy Fish (Saeed Jaffrey).

 I have to have these gentlemen in my forces.  Artizan made this possible with the set figures call Chaps who would be king,  My paypal account screamed not more bloody 28mm lead soldier... Lucky for Brigade Games had them in stock......  My finger hit the pay button.. Well the rest is history. If you want check the link.... Be warned  they are more VSF figures there.

Found this amazing Zeppelin in 28mm.   This would be great for In her majesty service.   Crossover Games has a kickstarter for a 28mm scale MDF Zeppelin kit. The model is the bottom half of the Zepplein, it is 73” long and comes in four modular sections. Perfect for Great War spy, Pulp and Superhero gaming.  Kickstarter linkZeppelin

Stream tractor anyone for The Men who would kings.

On the face book page The Men who would be kings I found this.  Yes an Armor stream tractor that was used for the Boer Wars....   Maybe next month I will add this to my British forces..  Second Boer war could be very interesting.

My British Troops arrived from the Warstore.

This my troops for upcoming campaign arrived.   Warstore carries Perry Brother miniatures in stock. This is bad for me, why because it is just a order click away.  Also in the mail is a package from Brigade miniatures.  They carry Artizian miniature that I need.  As I paint these new Brits.  There will be an order for the Pulp Fiction and In her majesty service figures.    Below you will my new toys....  One does need the Black watch for any great battle...

The men who would be Kings rule set.

 I had pre-ordered these rules back in July.  They arrived in the post just before I left for vacation.  Basically I had a quick for at the rules.  In some ways the play is similar to Blood Eagle and Daisho.  These rules are what my current interest is in. Basically because I have the figures already purchased.

   I think these rules can be pushed into the Pulp fiction era.   So 1930 at the tops.  A little of Indiana Jones type of game play.   I your interested there is a Face Book page for the rule set.The Men who would be Kings

The author post on the link below.  The Dux Rampant Forum.  Scroll down a little ways to find the correct forum.

I hope people will post here are what they think about the rules...
