Thank you all for the well meant, and appreciated, suggestions.

(Any fleeting to resemblance to the winter uniform we wore at Military College in the '70's is merely nostalgic.)
Meanwhile, I've been busy casting and converting some new units.
Sometime this month I will post an updated map and background page on the, so far, largely unknown northern half of Atlantica. That will lead in turn to the real start of planning and preparing for the series of wars that started in 1895.
Hopefully, I will also write some more posts about my experience of imagining and developing a fictional background. I was a little surprised that I've actually written very little on the idea of it since 2011! For a teeny bit more on the idea and some issues see the following 2011 posts:
Uncovering the history of places that never were.
More on discovering imaginary peoples
The original development c 2000 of what became known as Atlantica was documented on my old webpage: With MacDuff on the Web. One day I should recover the files from disk while (if) I still can.
