Back to (Old) School...

Another downside of having no hobby time (just a damn long commute and everyone asleep when I do get home) does mean the mind begins to wander. 

I have been following the excellent "With Pyjamas through the Desert" blog for some time now and have purchased the excellent Gilder based "Sand of the Sudan" rules. I am halfway through reading Harry Pearson's "Achtung Schweinehund!"  for the third time - still as laugh out loud as the first read.

This and other random thoughts and ideas have lead me towards the next "big plan". An Old School Sudan collection using the 20mm Jacklex figures available from Spencer Smith Miniatures.

I have also come to the conclusion that 20mm really is "my scale" and frankly I see no reason to dabble in any other.

Hopefully the first of the British will be up for show early December and not a wobbly lip among them!


  1. Sounds like an excellent project! Jacklex is a real name from the past. Very Terence Wise!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful plan Matt. I would love a full list of 20mm plastic Sudan figures if you get the chance to include in the campaign rules and scenario book next year mate if that isnt too much trouble.

    1. I will put something together no problem.
