Here we see 'Uncle' Toby Shandy with his manservant Corporal Trim and his faithful hound Charlie deep in discussion with Doctor Slop and Parson Yorick about the prospect of the upcoming campaign in 'New Hibernia' where the French and their dastardly Red Indian allies are causing no end of trouble and the likely involvement of Uncle Toby . This means in practical terms I have sent an order off to 'Prince August' for three of their rubber moulds for 'New Hibernian' natives - or Red Indians . Oh dear! I am the eternal 'Wargaming Butterfly' - but excited at the prospect of getting my 40mm SYW-ish collection on the table again ! .

Off at a Tangent.
You know how it is - your busy getting the backlog of 'need to paint' figures finished and concentrating on getting existing projects done when you come across a article/book/advert for something totally different and off you go at a tangent ! - the whole system goes to pot ! . This time I'm blaming (there must always be somebody else to blame) Ross MacFarlane of 'Battle Game of the Month' http://gameofmonth.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/on-road-to-who-knows-where.html , he's just put up a very interesting little battle set roughly in the French Indian Wars using his 40mm collection of figures - and not only that but included his own 'one page' set of rules for the period ! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Plm1B_ie47h-HXnlpze2tj_XgXHdWinTAov1Xbf1II4/edit - Blast ! - that got me thinking !
