Praetorian Tunnelers Trial Colour Scheme

Although there is a wait of at least 12 months, I've painted up a trial figure for the planned Tunneler Platoon.

I've gone for the Humbrol WWII 26 and 83 paints (khaki and the canvas webbing colour respectively) along with GW's Mournfang Brown (boots) and  Castellan Green (helmrt and epaulettes/ uniform trims).

Stormlord Detachment Upcoming Projects

Despite only getting home at weekends, I have managed to finish the three Veteran Squads to go with the Stormlord although some tidying up of uniform trims is required.

As for the future, I have another 55 strong Redcoat platoon to complete. Once those are done, I need to wait for Autumn next year when I should be receiving the Mantic Tunneler battlegroup for a planned 25 man platoon.  What colour scheme to go for?  I'll probably go for either a Boer War inspired scheme or base them on British WWI colouring just for something different.

In addition, there is also the Victoria Lamb designed BFG!!! (Three of them). 
I think I'm lining up enough work for my retirement in 7 years time!

Osprey Continue To Promote Wargames

Not content with real life military books, Osprey are continuing their drive into the wargaming realm.
Coming in November is this little pearl for all you who love Victorian sci-fi.  The book is also listed on Amazon.
I'm loving that cover artwork.

Hmmm...Kickstarter Inspiration for New Praetorian Unit.

Being a fan of Victorian sci fi and having a lot if spare Praetorians, I'm considering jumping in for three of the tunnelers. Possibly as an alternative Armoured Fist Platoon...with Deep Strike rules.  We'll see, I still have my Stormlord veterans to paint up.
