|Fuzzy Wuzzies on the march|
"We fought with many men across the seas,
An some of em'was brave and some was not:
The Pathan an'the Zulu an'Burmese:
But the Fuzzy was the finest o' the lot."
After what seemed an eternity I finally managed to get my elf organised and away from other projects to reinvigorate the Sudan collection. This is a constantly moving feast for me with many figures awaiting painting, basing and/or replacing or touching up.
These particular fellows are from the wonderful Peter Gilder designed Connoisseur Sudan range from the shelves of Bicorne Miniatures
|Looking quite fearsome as they advance upon the enemy - love the crouching figures.|
Though it is very, very easy to recycle them through, I do like to have some massed formations available for games with friends purely for "dramatic effect"!
As always, these are based seven to ten figures a base as originally detailed from Peter Gilder in order to get maximum bang for your buck. No matter how many figures care actually on the base, they still represent 100 men or ten figures.
With such big formations possible in these games, the ability to move 80 figures with the push of only eight bases is a wonderful time saver!
|You can never have enough of the airy enemy when playing The Sands of Sudan.|

|Slightly wobbly spears which I claim is a result of the local wood - certainly not bendy white metal!!|
I also will make every effort to start to post a couple of small scenarios to be played through and get some feedback from before the major publication of the Campaign rules and a scenario book later on.
This post is also present on my generic wargaming blog "With Pyjamas through a whiff of Grapeshot". Pop over if you would like to have a look:

Next time I hope to have some refreshed Naval Brigade and repainted Royal Marine Light Infantry to post on the blog.
