Northwest Frontier Project begins in 54mm AIP

So the first tests and such are going up on ye blog. Everyone isn't sold on "one" way of doing things, but you'll get a feel for it, and I'm hoping that the blogster will be able to make the posts useful for others embarking on similar projects.

Project overview:

Initial figure order: Armies in Plastic

Thanks to all for help getting us started!

Looks fun – I considered it myself for 'The Men who would be Kings' games but am fighting shy of starting a new project – I will be using 54mm plastics for some of the other Osprey skirmish games though (work already underway)

They keep testing me with their Sudan range.

The Sudan range is just huge, and seems pretty complete. The 2 for 1 sale on camel corps may end the end of this month, February. So in addition to the 8 for 5, you could get 16 for 5 of camels! That would be an army of 64 camels – quite a force! Ok, maybe no one needs that many, but you could certainly have a substantial relief column, and even purchasing them on foot would leave you with an amazing looking force. One of our guys just prepped his first camel and it is up in the blog.

We considered Sudan, but the old club has a ton of it in 28mm, and didn't seem to make sense to duplicate it.
