My Funny Little Wars Army: Additional equipment delivered

Just as I was leaving for work this morning, one of my neighbours called across to me. Apparently a parcel addressed to me had been delivered to her house by mistake, and she had been waiting to give it to me the next time she saw me. This was the first opportunity she had had to do so, and so she thrust it into my hands just before I drove off.

Work was quite busy this morning, and now that it is lunchtime, I have finally had the opportunity to open my parcel and find out what was inside. I was very pleased by what I found.

The parcel had been sent to me by Tim Gow (a fellow member of Wargame Developments and builder of FUNNY LITTLE WARS armies), and it contained two non-firing 54mm-scale American Civil War cannon, their limbers (something I am in desperate need of), and an unmade model of a Rolls Royce car that will be very suitable as a staff car for my army's general. The parcel was unexpected, which made its arrival all the more exciting and interesting.

The arrival of the parcel also reminded me that I must begin organising my FUNNY LITTLE WARS army for COW2011 ... which is now only four weeks away!

    Those wars, little or otherwise, aren't going to wage themselves.

  2. Conrad Kinch,

    Don't worry ... I will!

    The army HAS to be ready by 8th July; if not, there is not going to be a battle!

    All the best,

    Bob

  5. Bob,

    I look forward to seeing your FLW army take shape. And evidently we won't have long to wait. ;-)

    Perhaps I've missed previous posts about this army, what figures are you going with ?

    Regards,
    Steve

  6. Funny Little Wars - Garden Campaigns (Paul),

    The results will appear (unpainted, I suspect) at COW2011 in four weeks time ... along with the rest of the Cordeguayan army.

    I hope to spend some time this weekend getting the army organised into units so that I can then make to necessary movement bases for them ... but most of tomorrow is going to be devoted to trying to sort out a new home for my father-in-law, so who knows?

    All the best,

    Bob

  7. Tim,

    And very thankful we are as well ... and the next time Forbodia has any trouble with one of her neighbours, you can count on Cordeguay's support!

    All the best,

    Bob

  8. Steve Cady,

    I have taken the easy option of using Britains American Civil War Deetail figures (plus some odds and ends from their Cowboy range).

    If you select the LITTLE WARS label and look back at some of the earlier posts, you will see photographs of some of the figures and cannons that I am using.

    All the best,

    Bob
