Some colonials…

Hits: 87

In retrospect or with a lot of hindsight Imperialism (of any Century or era… so have a little perspective!… sometimes it was called simply “conquests”) was on the whole a bad thing (specially for the conquered). But if you love your History and know an average about it… inevitable somehow… That produced objectives for Nations (mainly as usual economic) and colourful units when “national” manpower was put to the test and found wanting…

So after a separation from my computer (a long week) here you can have a pic of some Colonial chaps… Enjoy.

Military Modeling paradigma… as seen in Facebook

Bill Horan does it better… than me and probably you… he is in a class of his own… I can remember when buying (long long ago) my copies of the magazine Military Modeling I was treated to examples of his craftsmanship or artwork… starting with a little mesh of bended wires etc.

Take this post for what it is, a “hats off” to his contribution to the Hobby. Never have I even intended to step on his footsteps (I know my limits)… and there are less then a dozen pieces in my modest collection that you can consider “pure” Military Modeling (see Posts about that in this web page to see the pics).

Simply awesome! (just look at the tartan trews paintwork…)

Actually it means that the sky is the limit in 54mm Toy Soldiers… Facebook (MTSAM)

Of course the officer in the left needs to see his optician (not that he is going to ever acknowledge this)… A superb vignette that mixes manufacturers and a great scenery or setting. I found the “atmosphere” a delightful reminder of times gone by… More tomorrow maybe…

54mm passion…

This is actually my first post with the new format of making a new Post each day (well, if you do not count yesterday’s joke)… I still think the true collecting scale is 54mm… and it will always be for me “the true size” of Toy Soldiers.

Zulu War minis (did I really needed to explain that?) film version of course! (as seen in FB)
