Rüdiger made some nice Prussian dragoons. I think I simply let photos talk...

Tirallieurs Anamite for Indochina 1880ies

When I started my own production several years ago I had some ideas for exotic campaigns. One of it is the French war in Indochina in the 1880ies.

The French Colonial infantry I painted from British Zulu war figures, the Zouaves I made with head-conversions.

The Problem were the enemies and the Colonial troops. So at first I asked Ingo to make me some Anamites which I have in the shop since the beginning.

I never went on with this subject because I concentrated on Wellington in India and some other ranges I had in mind.

Now I asked Ingo if he still can make me some figures to round up this range.
First the Tirallieurs Anamite, later some Black Flags.

Now I got the photos from Ingo. Well the first one has a full beard which is not the way of Vietnamese People. I will try to get a head-conversion here.  But the uniform is good and I have another unit to fight in the jungle:-)

Stefan Mayer sent me the photos of his latest diorama project.  Very nice, I haven't seen a siege in this period in 1/72 before.

Massimo's new set - Highlanders at Tamai 1884

After the Custer set which was sold out within days Massimo now made a second set in his own production series.

This time it is a set of his favorite army - Highlanders! And it is from my favorite period - colonial wars:-)

Ok they are for Tamai - But I am sure I can use them at Tel El Kebir, Afghanistan and other wars too. My two sets are already on the way from Italy.

Those of you who want to order a set from Massimo directly (price 25 Euro plus 10 Euro postage)
send him a mail at daikaigan@hotmail.it.

Here the figures - he likes "last stands"
