On the Figure Front
I sent a message to 19th Century about the availability of Old Glory 15s for the Herero Revolt project. I received a reply within a few hours, which indicated that they can fulfill orders for OG15s without issue. I am skeptical of course, but to game this period in 15mm, really this is about my only choice, especially if I want to stay within one manufacturer, as I like to do.
I was looking at 10mm as an alternative, but again, there is not one company making all the figures needed, plus most of my terrain is scaled for 15mm...actually, as there will be very few buildings, the terrain is really not an issue if there were 10mm options, but alas, there are none.
So, probably within a couple of months as I sort through other gaming projects, I will place an order with 19th Century and cross my fingers and toes that they will fulfill the order in a timely manner with no issues!
New Page Added
I have added a new page that has some photos and artwork relative to the Herero Revolt. I will be adding more in the future as I come across.
New Links Added
The Darkest Africa gaming site, while it has not been updated in some years, still has some excellent inspirational material related to German colonials.
I have also linked the old Savage and Soldier online article written by Paul Beck on the Colonial Wars of Imperial Germany.
And I have added A Grab Bag of Games blog to the blog roll. While the blog owner is focusing on early conflicts in East Africa, it serves as a great source of inspiration as well.
