Army commanders

I’ve just completed a couple of army command groups, one for the British and one for the Boers. These are mounted on 6cm MDF discs and I think they look quite smart.

I had a lot of fun selecting the figures and putting these mini ‘dioramas’ together. The British group is composed of a Jacklex mounted officer and figure with field-glasses, the horses and horse holder are by Newline Designs. The Boer commander is by Newline (from the pom-pom crew) and is flanked by two of the remaining Scruby figures Ross sent me. These command bases have no function in my rules, but you can’t have armies without commanders.

  3. Splendid Command Groups - the newline figures do fit in well with the older Brands.

    1. Hi Kev, I've been surprised at just how well the different types fit together.

  4. Excellent command bases! They really fill the bill. I agree that Scruby figures have a certain charm, that's why I have so many of them! Take care and keep up the great work! Brad
