Above is a pic of Lt. Colonel James Galbraith, Regimental Colour in hand, alongside Bobbie the regimental dog and some of the other "Last Eleven" survivors of the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment, making their last stand in one of the walled gardens just South of Khig village, a few miles West of the Afghan town of Maiwand.

"Pelham, the money has arrived, the money has arrived!"
...well, actually, I should have said "THE AFGHAN BUILDINGS HAVE ARRIVED!" Just as I was headed out to work late this morning the mailman dropped off a large box. I opened it and was very happy to find 9 scratch-built buildings and 2 gardens, all courtesy of GAMER-X, also known to me as THE BLIND ARCHITECT (he is not actually blind). The buildings turned out quite nicely, especially if you know that Gamer-X has never built anything larger than a medieval siege tower before, at least that I know of, and that was putting together a model, not fabricating from scratch. And there are SEVERAL MORE GARDENS yet to come!
Here's a few pics:
