Cant think of anything you would have - need several sets of 15mm Valentine tracks, and a drivers hatch for a 28mm panther but I suspect you don't have either of those.

Yes you`re right i have nothing remotely like that, do you want a couple of quid via Paypal to cover postage??

28mm scimitars

Strange request I need a few arms/hands holding scimitars/curved daggers in 28mm - cavalry sabres would also do at a pinch :)

Anyone happen to have odd bits left over from various plastic box sets??

Any help appreciated

Re: New article: I’ve started… so I’ll Finnish

I just love modelling horse drawn transport, I have dozens of pieces among my various C20th armies.

I`ve never looked east, but this was very interesting :D

Re: More Foreign Legion options?

As concern Légionaires and Compagnies Sahariennes (mounted on camels of course) fighting in the desert "side to side" and maybe against Touaregs mounted (on camel) warriors...there is a false myth generated from Hollywood, Pulp stories, iconography and of course..and sorry for that...wargamers ;) ....

Re: More Foreign Legion options?

Cant comment on the MG's, but the camels are more historic than people think. Yes for fat troop moves the legion used mules, but they did use camels for long range patrols. IanS Sorry Ian, the French Colonial Army had a camel corps - Saharienne, Their job was long range patrols and showing the flag...
