Beautiful customs of colonial troops, the new colonial helmet is fabulous.

Steam tanks & airships reminds me of Major General's Reddering's site: http://www.zeitcom.com/majgen/



Hello, Dan ...

David Helber (AKA The Major General ... and, not to be confused with GW's David Hamer), provided many suggestions, lots of ideas and and an incredible amount of moral support when we were first creating the Garden Wargaming website more than eleven years ago.

Thanks for posting the link to the Major General's site, Dan!

I would urge those of you who have never seen the Major General's site, to go visit. I know that you will enjoy it!

Thanks again, Dan.

And, all the best,
Richard



Actually I got most of my ideas for this display looking at this (and similar wargaming) site(s)!

Long time no post here! that´s to be changed....
I finally found the perfect body for my Schutzruppe Soldiers..
It´s from the male Klicky in the 4843 Treasure Hunter Set and it looks nearly like the original Cord Litewka worn by the German Südwest Schutztruppe Soldiers...
(I know they did not have black collars and epaulettes, but since they are designed for a fictional German Colony, I spit on historical correctness ;D)

Hello, Olki ...

I love your German Südwest Schutztruppe Soldier ...

I also loved Steve McQueen in the movie Sand Pebbles ... ;)

And, I agree with you about "spitting on historical correctness" ...  ;D

All the best,
Richard

Hi,
I've just discovered this beautiful diorama....
IT'S GREATEST¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

I'm doing a serie of the WWI with Schutztrupper, Askaris, Uhlans.....
And I'll be interested in the bigger salacots and the vickers machine gun.
Could you tell me how could I get any of them??

Great figures but can't agree about historical corectness.  Working out how to get the details right is half the fun!

The Camelriders are from the old Hunter´s Stand set and very rare.... :'(
They have long been sold out at the DS...

The white Marine troops are sold at the DS as cooks form the Wedding Guests Set
That’s pretty clever, actually.
¿Can we see them in color?

For me it is fun to find out the details and what can be done with the pm at hand to get as close as possible. And then to imagine what remains uncovered and what could be.  :) 
@ geobra: Thanks a lot!!! :-)
