Hi All,
I haven't forgotten the blog.  I am taking a photography course and hope to get some good shots of my figures for the blog.  Patience, my friends, patience.....

Here are another couple of shots showing the basing of artillery, MGs (same as artillery) and a couple of the markers I use for losses and ammo.  The bottom image shows the shield markers I use for Disorder and Shaken, one shield and two shields respectively.  I know some people don't like markers on the table, but I think that these can be opportunities for adding chrome to the layout.  Ignore the dice…the picture was taken to illustrate a combat example that didn't make it into the book.

As I noted earlier, I have never blogged before, so here is a picture (I hope) of some figures from my Zulu War collection.  I will be taking better shots and will start posting informational content about the game.

This picture does illustrate the basic stands I use: 4 close order stands for the British; 4 loose order "massed" stands for the rifle armed Zulus (left) to allow them to form a skirmish line; and two big stands for the spear armed massed Zulus which combines the usual front and rear stands into one, but allows for the Deep Massed formation.

The figures here are Old Glory British and rifle armed Zulus, and Connoisseur spear armed Zulus.  I like the Connoisseur Zulus as they are single piece castings.  Not the best out there, but convenient because of the 'no assembly required' aspect.  I wish more companies would produce single piece castings.
