Some books on back order from The Scholar's Bookshelf have arrived to increase my Colonial library:
"From Korti to Khartum -A Journal of the Desert March from Korti to Gubat and of the Ascent of the Nile in General Gordan's Steamers" By Col. Sir Charles W. Wilson
"With the Camel Corps Up the Nile" by Count Gleichen
"The Battle of Tofrek - Fought near Suakin, March 22nd 1885" under Major General Sir John Carstairs M'Neill
These books author's were there. Could be dry reading but we will see.
The French Foreign Legion in white are 95% done. Photos to follow. Rick's figure is done -Beni's is 95% done. FFL figs are done!
Foot Arabs are based & primed and painting will start forthwith.
Mounted Figures - need to temporarily attached to dowels and primed. All horse have their based trimmed, but the horse still need to filed and trimmed, then based.
Dead & Wounded Legionnaires & Arabs - Arabs are based & primed & FFL are next on the based/prime list. Some of the wounded Arabs have to painted first, then based due to the figures position.
I am going to clear the table, put a mat down and start some solo play testing, using what is finished and just bases for now.
