|Beautiful colour plate by Bob Marion accompanied these articles.|
A few of you asked if I could post the article I quoted from and the full uniform plates from the same piece which was published by the wonderful Military Modelling magazine way back in December 1984 to help commemorate the centenary of the actions of the time.
|The original article. All rights would still be with the author I assume so please acknowledge|
the very clever Michael Barthorp in any scenarios, campaigns and refights please.
|Some interesting further reading material noted here at the end of the article.|
The old Military Modelling magazine was an interesting one for me. I used to absolutely hang out for the next wargaming magazine, be it Miniature Wargames in the very early issues (up to about 50 I still enjoyed and then they changed their editorial style which lost me). Wargames Illustrated then became my passion.
Dave Barker from our wargaming club used to get extra Military Modelling magazines from his newsagent in the Northern suburbs and every month he would turn up with a dozen for the members. Often they were slightly underwhelming however when they were at their best, particularly with Ian Weekley modelling tips and Charles Grant scenarios, they were top notch.
I have a good deal of articles which will be of interest I think for wargamers of this particular colonial period so I will add them whenever possible in the interests of furthering knowledge of the period and in the hope that I am not infringing anyones copyright.
Happy New Year to all until next time.
