A HAT Askari
I've been following Ross's new game on his blog and I was thinking it might be a good fit for some games that don't quite work with CCN. I had intended to use it for an 1850s "what if" style scenario, using my Crimean Russians, Austrians, Hungarians and French. On the other hand, I might actually see if I could use it with my Indian armies as they haven't had a go yet. This was sort of prompted by the fact that I'm getting a game of TSATF in tomorrow and it means I won't have reset the table.
With that in mind, I thought I might need a couple of Indian civilians. I don't actually have any, but I did have a German Askari lying around. So I gave him a quick trim with a sharp knife and added some green stuff for a turban and turned his jacket into robes.
It's not the neatest job in the world, but it might pass muster with a lick of paint.
John Lockwood Kipling bas relief - inspirational stuff.
I'm quite looking forward to getting a game into tomorrow. It's been a dogs age. I hope I remember how TSATF works.
