Jack's Colonial Army

Jack has allowed Bob to take all his Colonial figures so we can have a game with them.  Bob has put all the figures on the table and whilst we have played with them in the past it has been with parts of the collection.  For the first time Bob has put out all the British, Indian and Sudanese and supporting artillery on the table together,  We both think there are some more floating about but even so they look impressive and it is the first time we have seen them like this.  So I went and took some pictures before they go back in their boxes.  

Bob also laid out the Mahdist forces.. Jack painted the overwhelming bulk of these figures over 40 years ago,

The really good thing is that these lovely figures are now available from

Mahdist Forces

Jack made the scratch built the fort.

    1. Hi Matt, as always thank you so much for looking and posting. You have hit the nail on the head, it is a fantastic collection and a real tribute to one of the early wargame suptures.

  2. Wonderful collection and lovely to see them en masse. Hope you have an enjoyable game with them.

  3. Hi glad you liked them. It will give Jack a bit of a boost whilst recovering from his hip operation. Somewhere there is even more British artillery!!

  4. An absolutely classic collection!
    Best regards
