Perry WoR/Cousins War Standard Bearers Arrive

What a lovely pack this is and one that will complete the vignette below; I wanted two stationary miniatures, one will be holding Charles VIII Standard and the other his Heraldic Banner.

The first mini is from the command sprue of Wars of the Roses Plastic boxed Set by Perry Miniatures. The second is ringed in this picture below:

Firstly a picture of the pack:

And the elected Standard Bearer for Charles VIII:

I will be beginning work on these just as soon as I have five more Mahdists, six Mounted KRRC conversions and possibly the Royal Artillery Camel Train converted vignette I have been working on. So, you can see how busy with the hobby I am at the moment!

Bye  for now.

My New Shooting Leave Blog


This is just a quick post to let you all know that I started a new blog based on 19th Century Victorian Warfare. It's called Shooting Leavea name taken from the times when British Officers would 'take leave' traipse around the Empire often at their own expense and at extreme personal danger to map out and spy in the furthest reaches of Empire and beyond.

i thought it a good name for a blog featuring battles of the Visctoian ers.

If you like, you can pop over and see what all the fuss is about HERE!

Cheers for now.

Help Needed! Activation of Followers Widget???

Now Sorted Out- Many Thanks to Ray!

Hi, it seems that one problem that I wasn't aware of until now, was that my normal Blog Followers wasn't activated. I've been through the widgets list and I cannot find anything that would help me in my quest to turn the damn thing on so that it appears on my blog:

Shooting Leave (Victorian Colonial Warfare Blog):

Can anyone out there give me some advice please- it would be gratefully received.

I've not tagged it as of yet as I don't want to give the game away!

Cheers for now.
