Balkan Interlude - the Gathering of the Plans

Greek Irregulars

Just as a quick update really - I have made some progress in identifying the ships of the Greek navy in use in 1900 for the forthcoming Balkans project - and also the uniforms for the Bulgarian infantry so the data bank is growing nicely. For the land side I merely need to acquire the Greeks from Irregular Miniatures and a selection of 1900 era artillery pieces to have just about everything I will need to kick this off in due course.

As mentioned previously, I shall be basing the armies individually using 1 and 2p pieces and have opted to use the pre cut MDF bases available from Warbases - -  for the movement trays.

Some work in earnest on the whole project will be undertaken whilst I am away on holiday; along with a couple of others ideas that are bubbling away.....;-)

P.S. For some lovely inspirational 'eye candy' take a look at this website: I would suggest sitting away from the computer whilst doing so as the subsequentt drooling over the keyboard will not do it any good. Hiding the wallet would probably be a good idea as well. You have been warned!

Hi Angry,

Absolutely! Great scale to game in if you have the room and the finances for it (not to mention the time!).

All the best,

Hi Geordie,

Real pantomine bandits usually festooned with weaponry - what's not to like? The Balkans armies I shall be undertaking will feature something very similar....;-)

All the best,
