Following on to my last post, here is the newest Rebel Brigadier in the Army of the Annapaloosa. Soldiers like to nickname Generals. General Kinch is widely known as "Ol' Smokey". His brother in Federal Service is known as Smokey the Bear.
The body used for this conversion is probably familiar to anyone who war gamed or played with toy soldiers in the 70's. The head, sword and horse are from Italeri. Its interesting that with the naked eye, I can see the pipe but can hardly see the smoke while for the camera, it is the other way around.
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.
