Even more reinforcements

On the way to visit my father-in-law in Herne Bay this morning, I stopped off to pick up a package from the local Post Office sorting office. I was not able to open it until I got home just a few minutes ago, but when I did I found that it contained a large number of American Civil War Britains Deetail toy soldiers that I had bought last week in an Ebay auction.

But there is more; whilst I had been out, the ordinary post had delivered a smaller package that contained another batch of Britains Deetail Apaches ... enough for another regiment of irregular light infantry.

But there is even more; whilst I was in Herne Bay, I popped into a toy shop and found two bags of cheap Cowboys and Indians on sale for £2.49 each. Part of the contents of each bag was a covered wagon ... so I bought both bags. The figures may have some uses, but the wagons give me the basis of a supply train for my FUNNY LITTLE WARS army.

All-in-all, it has been a good day so far, and my Army of Cordeguay is beginning to take shape.

  1. Hi Bob,

    Cordeguay is shaping up very nicely indeed - I will keep an eye out for the Britains Deetail ACW stuff at the various boot sales I visit as they sometimes turn up in small quantities.

    Have you considered the Cordeguayan navy at all?

    All the best,

  3. David Crook,

    If you do find and buy any ACW (or French Foreign Legion) Britains Deetail figures, I will willing buy them off you!

    As to the possibility of a Cordeguayan Navy ... well, I have an idea or two that might come to fruition in due course.

    All the best,

    Bob

    I am very pleased with my purchases, and I think that I will get a lot of use out of them.

    All the best,
