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.

Last night, with more help from my son, we finished putting 2 to 4 highlight colors onto all four of the remaining terrain boards. I think they look pretty good.

Here's a pic:

Here's a sketch I did on the wall of the office I share with my partner at work, before I started working on the boards. It's kind of cool for me to see it now, since the finished 6'x10' tabletop looks just about exactly the way I had laid it out...


  1. Looks great! Im just about to start a desert board for the Sudan so nice to how good this one turned out

  2. Wow, Hermit, missed your comment here until just now -- almost a year since you put it up!
