6mm Desert terrain part VI

       The only buildings left are the large target buildings. With this one being the of the smaller buildings. Again it is two glued together, one is too skinny for me.


Con-X boxes. If you have ever been to the desert, these thing are all over the place. Some are storage. The others are apartments, stores, workshops. All are in fairly good condition, with little no no paint removed.

Where I was, the boxes were never high than 3. Most were side by side. That is what I will be going with. Our boxes were painted green, tan, white, and a few blue.

Sudan project "wound markers" part III

They have been waiting for attention almost all month.
There are not too many good wounded/dead dudes for the Ansar in 20mm. I have gone with 15mm wounded from Old Glory. The are cheaper and fit very nicely on the counters here. Plus there do not become a dominating thing on the table and look better than dice knocking about.
Only down side is I need to clean off the window for the number. The matte spray coat made it cloudy.

Sudan project "Sudanese" part one

Starting to chip away away at a few of Egyptain forces. The Egyptain and Sudanese dudes come from the 2 box sets. The Turkish Artillery is a gold mine for special characters or gaming markers. The core dude one needs are in the Waterloo box.
For uniforms, I am sourcing Osprey color plates and the Sudan reference books Vol 1.

So far. Dudes are on blocks. During down time on the Ansar forces, I will be hitting them.
