Shed, 1898 and a recommendation
A cold day here yesterday but I braved the shed to rummage around and find these chaps for the forthcoming Colonial Portable Wargame. They are Freikorp 15mm from the mid eighties. The metal is/was brittle and some repairs need to done.
I was really impressed by the ideas that you came up with for opponents, did some reading and watched a couple of film trailers along the way. Lots of ideas and I will have a think. Finally can I recommend some novels to you by John Biggins. They are set in the last fifty years of the Austro Hungarian empire and are most enjoyable,full of fascinating characters and interesting background. Although I don’t quite agree, but know what they mean, someone reviewed them and said they were a cross between Tom Clancy and Patrick OBrian. Well worth a read.
