My British Colonial Foot --
I had a request to provide some photos of some of my Ral Partha Colonials. Well there are far too many to put into a single post . . . but I thought that I'd give you a bit of a taste of them.
While I started out using "The Sword and the Flame", I later gravitated to "G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T." (although without the "steampunk" additions).
Eventually I ended up writing my own rules, "Khyber Knife". which used elements of both of the above and some ideas of my own.
Anyway, my units are all of ten figures (although I just use a few for these photos -- not whole units). Remember too that if you 'click' on any photo you will see a larger version of it.
Next to each unit I have placed a figure on its side so that you can see how I base them.
All rank-and-file are on pennies while the leader (usually a non-com, but occasionally an officer) is based on a nickel.
The bottom of the base of each figure is painted in the unit's 'facing color' with the unit number written with a sharpie.
The first couple of shots are sort of "group shots", but those following are of individual units. The fort and houses are built of foamcore and are very light and durable. The palm trees started life as 'cake decorations'.
Now for some individual units:
