The other day I hauled out several hundred of my Sudan 60mm toy soldiers and set up a diorama in my basement, depicting the charge of the 21st Lancers at the Battle of Omdurman. Winston Churchill and even Harry Flashman are on the scene.

All of the figures are Trophy of Wales toy soldiers.

Great stuff.

It's always nice to see such wonderful toy soldiers get out of the storage boxes and onto the tabletop. You've got such a lovely collection. I especially like the British officer on the grey with the Mauser pistol as young Winston.

Ragbones: the figure was sold as "Young Winston at Omdurman " so he's the real deal.

We are scheduling a Sudan toy soldier game in September based on the Battle of Firkit, which features an all-Egyptian army commanded by then-colonel Kitchener fighting the Dervish. This will be a nice change of pace from having British troops versus the Dervish.
