Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign

It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.

To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October. By popular vot e it will be set in the mid 18th Century.

Sitting on the Dock of the Bey or What I did today.

The first 54mm plastic figure that I've done in years.  Aficionados of soft plastic AWI in either scale will recognize the base for this Barbary Pirate chief.


  1. Hi Ross,

    Very nice indeed! What make of figure is he? The whole Barbary coast thing is a special interest of mine and I love the idea of gaming something related to them in some fashion.

    What are your plans for the said chap? He certainly looks as though he means business!

    All the best,


  2. I think this impressive rascal is converted from a figure in the Accurate AWI American Militia set.

  3. Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. Steve is right, He is from the Accurate AWI set.
    seen here in 1/72nd

    No plans for him David, except to hopefully send him off to NYC to play in some one else's games there.


  4. A rum looking cove and no mistake.

  5. Great conversion, Ross. I especially like your treatment of his headgear.
