From FranL - 15mm Modern African Forces "The New Simbas" (242 points)

At long last, the first entry in the main Challenge from Fran. Welcome aboard big fella :)

Who doesn't need a small modern professionally trained African force for modern skirmish games?

Seemingly me........

These boys are from Peter Pig, they cover those spots where Warlords or Dictators have money and a penchant for designing uniforms and penning their biography.





The armour though is second rate, T-55's, Unimogs, a Landrover and several wrecks but our Warlord/Dictator has plans, big plans........




....but no one in the region can match his small force yet!

These boys should be followed by the less professional, untrained, less disciplined, larger, nasty militia forces in the region. 

Apologies for less than good pictures (deleted some shots other than the ones above) but it's hard to find space and good light in a mobile home and when a lot of stuff is in storage!


Fran tells me there are 10 vehicles, 79 figures and 6 crew served weapons in this entry. I'll believe him. That comes to a grand 242 points.
Quite a points bomb for your debut on the main Challenge. Now, when is the other half of the Two Bromantics going to join us here?

  1. Top entry. Always good to have a large poorly equipped badly trained force. You never know when you need them

  5. It is a shame you are no longer close or I could threaten your force with my own African Religious Dictator ship!

    An impressive force mate that my religious dictator would squash like a bug. But as our borders do not touch you are save (for now)

  6. A most impressive entry - surely the foes of you warlord/dictator quake in fear when those T-55's are rumbling towards them!

  7. Nice to see you've got a force to protect you in your new Kingdom Fran. Those tanks combined with the SWMBO's geese will keep you safe!

    Nice job with these!

  8. The troops and vicks turned out really well, Fran! I like your camouflage pattern on the fellas and my favorite vick is the ramshackle sedan....is that for the benevolent leader or the hapless scouts?! ;)
