Nice blog. Please keep us updated.

Looks very interesting. Will you cover Mesopotamia as well?

WeeWars01 May 2014 3:39 p.m. PST

Mesopotamia definately.

And thank you for looking!

I'll update on the Pendraken Forum possibly more often:

Thanks for the post, since I have 10mm figs and have yet to use them, this should help inspire me.

Your blogs are awesome. I wish I had the skill and patience to do something approaching it.

Also wish I'd stay long enough around, to game these as we are almost neighbours, I presume. esp ITLSU

WeeWars02 May 2014 9:36 a.m. PST

Schlesien, let me know how you get on.

Jc, email me through my WeeWars page if you're going to Carronade next week.

Jcfrog Supporting Member of TMP02 May 2014 12:12 p.m. PST

Me WeeWars your 1809 blog is quite simple stunning. Why not turn it into a book? Have a chat with Henry Hyde I'm sure he'd help out …

WeeWars13 May 2014 3:33 p.m. PST


Thanks! That's very kind of you. If Henry's interested, I'm interested!

Cheers, Michael

Schlesien14 May 2014 7:47 p.m. PST

I would be interested in reading on your blog some more recommended reading/reference material.

WeeWars15 May 2014 6:33 a.m. PST

Schlesien, I'll do that soon. Cheers, Michael

Fantastic stuff Michael!

Thanks, Shawn!

Since my last heads-up on TMP, I have put up blog posts on Indian Rifles, casualty conversions, palm tree groves, Arab miniatures, a signals base, a trench-digging marker, and sheep Ė and who's not interested in sheep?


Cheers, Michael

Very interesting site, but as a blog an RSS feed is a necessity for people to keep track of new postings.

Mick in Switzerland Supporting Member of TMP28 Jul 2014 10:31 p.m. PST

Brilliant Blog – thank you for sharing this.

Your blog is a fantastic inspiration for me to get moving on WWI Middle East. Very well done -- love the buildings and the signals base.

I'm using 1/72 scale figures from HaT Industrie as they have put out an impressive collection in recent years. My basing is also two figures per stand representing a platoon, as I play Command Decision. So if I ever try out the ITLSU rules, the figures will be mostly ready for use!
