|Bengal Sapper and Miners bastion in Sherpur cantonment, Kabul, Second Afghan War|
Yes, the picture is about the Second Afghan War, but I like it a lot.
About this entry, I have, finally, written a pair of Army Lists for the Third Afghan War to use with my new rulebook, "Chain of Command". I have read some very interesting AAR´s in different blogs that are not based in the WWII, and I have seen that the rules works very well. So I have prepared a List for the British Indian Army and another for the Afghan Forces.
|Empress Miniatures Afghan Tribesmen|
First one, the Afghan Forces. I have written a list to use with the Afghan regular troops and also the tribesmen. I have used the information I have and, also, a pair of Army Lists for the Spanish Civil War there are in the Too Fat Lardies Yahoo Group. They are very useful for anyone interested in the first months of that conflict.
|Woodbine Design Miniatures Indian Troops|
Second one, the British Indian Army List. I have also used some ideas from those Spanish Civil War lists. I think this list is very useful to represent small patrols or garrisons.
Both lists are, in this moment, "work in progress", but I expect to use them as soon as I have some more Indian models. I don´t like these from Woodbine, and I´m awaiting the new models from Empress, but, probably, I will buy another section from Woodbine, to have a solid patrol, at least.
On the other hand, I am reading a new book about this war:
A very nice book, really, really useful for me.Highly recomendable, IMHO.
