Finally got around to setting out most of the Legation guards and members of the Carving Knife Brigade. First up, the U.S. Marines on top of the Tatar Wall, defending the American Legation and manning a street barricade:

Wonderfully done! And "Austrian Sailors" at something one does not see every day!

Now that's spiffy! What make are the troops and buildings?

Hi Tom, all of the military Legation forces and the Carving Knife Brigade are Old Glory, as are the Legations and other "western-style" buildings situated between. The Tatar Wall and the Chinese buildings along one side of the table were scratch built. The Chinese civilians might be from Bob Murch's Pulp Figures (it's been a long time). There are a couple of Foundry adventurers thrown in, too.

Smokey, that's your Ava on top of the British Legation Gate house! grin
