The figures have a decent plastic box to reside in and the compartments keep them upright and safe . Just enough room for all the Tradgardistani collection so far. I also painted up some Warbases penny movement trays and decorated them with sand and undergrowth to match the figure bases. Three figures represent a company and two figures skirmishers.
The view from the starting position of the Brigadier’s forces. The squares are marked on the mat with a small cross at the corner of each square.
An aerial view of the battlefield and the rules ready to go...
The view from the opposition starting line. The Man with the golden gun and sword commands from the hill top with his drummer for signalling orders. The mortar is ready to fire and the invaders are awaited. Battle report and rules first impressions over the coming days...
Morning Alan. I love your little set ups like this, and look forward to seeing the BATREP. What is your cloth made of?ReplyDelete
Thanks Mike, the mat was from a dba boxed terrain set of years ago. I have painted the textured side khaki as opposed to its original green. The cloth/felt side is now laid out by me in a square grid.Delete
The figures look excellent Tradgardmastare - I'm keen to see how you get on with the Colonial PW; I haven't tried it yet.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I am pleased how they came out. I need a read through once more of the CPW rules and then I will go for it...Delete
Hi Alan- Is this an 'Abyssinia' type PORTABLE GAME...looks very good- will read with interest your report on the compact battle.ReplyDelete
This is a North West Frontier of India set up as opposed to Abyssinia. I enjoy the challenge of such compact games.ReplyDelete
A great setup ... and the triple-figure sabot bases are an excellent idea that I am seriously thinking of copying!
All the best,
They are really helpful, look good and are inexpensive. I look forward to seeing them on your blog.Delete
Thank God for OMIT! If the rebels have got mortars I bet those devious Bolsheviks are behind this. The Great Game is afoot!ReplyDelete
It certainly is afoot but OMIT hopes to stop it in its tracks but we will see...Delete
I do like your simple 'Portable' setup, and as has been said, those multiple bases look a great idea! Looking forward to the battle report..ReplyDelete
It works well for me and the bases work well. Didn’t get round to the game today, probably will do so tomorrow or Sunday.Delete
