This unit is composed of 12 Falcon Miniatures sword-armed Arabs (with one converted to the leader/standard bearer) and 8 Iron Brigade rifle-armed Arabs.
I received the Iron Brigade miniatures from their new owner, The Lost Battalion Miniatures. The owner has many of the Iron Brigade moulds and is going to be casting and, I think, upgrading them. He also has a number of figures on-hand. I ordered some of the rifle-armed Arabs, a French Foreign Legion command group (for a batch of Iron Brigade FFL I have), some ship guns, and a horse and musket artillery limber with two horses and attendant. The service was great!
Now to the house problem. This past Wednesday night, while getting some foamcore out to make some movement stands, I discovered that I had a water leak along the outside wall of my wargaming/computer room. My wife, son, and I moved a batch of wargaming and stamp stuff out and discovered mildew and ruined box bottoms and loose-leaf binders. Before it was all over, I had filled two large trash cans and had the rest of my house stacked with troop boxes, terrain boxes, etc., etc. I only lost some stamp collecting material and some cardboard boxes. None of my troops were affected. The only terrain I lost was one 2' square terrain board made from a ceiling tile. It was the bottom of a stack of them. We tore the carpet out today and the resulting picture tells it all - a bare room! Isn't the original 1970s tile simply horrid!
At least it will give us a chance to repaint the walls. And we still have to figure out how to seal the exterior wall (which "backs" onto a porch) to keep the water from entering in the future. Plus a new floor. The adventure of a homeowner never ceases!
