A Punitive Expedition....Part 4 A

As yesterday evening was spent reviewing a local college for my daughter's intended A levels there was very little time left for anything gaming related . The Battle of Keder Sirt will be fought this evening and I hope to have the after action report on the blog as soon as possible.

I was able to have a slightly longer look at the newly acquired Perry plastic 28mm ACW Zouaves (again I will report in more detail later) and can only reiterate my earlier observation - they are gorgeous and suitably full of dash and swagger. I am really pleased that I opted to use them.

There are a few minor details that would offend the purist in respect of representing an actual Turkish infantryman of 1877 - not least of which is the firearm as it is a rifled musket of ACW vintage rather than the Peabody Martini Henry of 1877 used to such devastating effect against the Russians.

Still, it is an 'imagi-nation' after all and so such considerations can be safely ignored!

I often find one of the most important things to remember is that you have an audience of one.

Hi CK,

Very true - in more ways than you could possibly imagine as well!

All the best,
