War on the Nile...

While looking for inspiration to repair my Gun this is how it looks at the moment...
...and this is how I wanted my boat to look...

...and while planning its recovery (as it has seen better days)...I received an email from those lovely people at Sierra Toy Soldier...I have used them a number of times for my fathers 54mm Napoleonic collection...

And guess the subject of the email...the Nile Wars!

Oh heck - these great figures are from the new and latest editions to Britain's War on the Nile rang...if only I lived in a hanger!

Take a look...I am sure you will enjoy the images

Dervish Infantry

Britians Camel Corps

Egyptian Infantry - Summer dress

Battle of Tamai March 13, 1884

York and Lancaster Regiment

The whole rang is listed here...

Back to painting my 20mm

  1. Duncan, my good man,

    An inspiring thread. I often thought about making my own Nile steamer, but right now my hands are full working on the Camel Corps, and other subjects. Nevertheless, a very inspirational post.

    Love the blog. I check for updates every day. Thanks for posting links to my ETS posts! I'm happy someone else is enjoying my models.
