Search Glorious Little Soldiers

Wednesday 21 March 2012

Look what I found- part 2

More daft discoveries from the depth of my drawers. These I believe are Connoiseur from almost 30 years ago. I certainly had these before I was in the toy soldier business so at the least over 20 years(Yes chaps 2012 is OGUK 20 th year in business) I found the camel corps chaps first along with the rest of a partly painted unit and some kneeling camels- but no dismounts. Now the Sudan has never been one of my things so can't think how I came by these. The civvies and goats etc have been used more recently in modern games but even they havn't been out of their bioxes for a few years
To bwe honest I blame this whole found it thing on the entirely fictional Colonel Kurt Stallone of the 69th Marine Independent Landing Force since it was his group I was looking for. The good Colonel and his cohorts represent my only non-historical foray. whats is known in our group as "silly Sci- Fi " Silly becasue of the truly bad jokes therin
Here we see the Colonel and his men on the streets of San Antone in the Jordan valley in the republic of New Nevada on O'Tooles World s Doubtless searching for Denzil Wahington Snipes and the Terrorists(Freedom Fighters) of the Armed Revolutionary Socialist Executive. Told you it was daft didn't I.
