First Units for 2009

The theme year for the Jackson (MS) Wargamers will be Colonial Adventuring. It will largely be Victorian Colonial games, but we will venture into the French & Indian Wars (including some imagi-nation gaming in the Capitania General de Florida) and other areas that meet our rather lax definition of Colonialism. So there will be fewer European Seven Years War imagi-nation units depicted in 2009 and more Victorian Colonial units.

And the first are my Beja war band for conflicts in the Soudan. These are all vintage Ral Partha figures which I have had for a number of years.

This unit of 12 camelry warriors forms the mounted component of the Beja warband of Abdul Aboulboul Amir.

And this is just a few of the two 20-figure infantry bands that fight for the Amir in the Soudan against the Imperialist British and their Egyptian lackeys!

Hi Jim,
Good luck with your theme year. Your miniatures look really terrific.
Best wishes,

Hi Jim,

One day I hope to get organized enough to have a painting schedule. Until then I squeeze it in when and where I can. In your Colonial gaming don't overlook Abdul's belligerent companions - Sheik Yabouti and the Ackoond of Swat! I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress.
