Putting the finishing touches on a solo French Foreign Legion game using Tim Wright's convention rules, "Sand and Blood." A supply column guarded by 2 companies of Legionnaires emerges from a pass almost in sight of the fort. What could go wrong?

Neat – who makes the hill pass piece? And the fort? Greenfield keeps coming into my head.

Ragbones02 Sep 2019 8:48 a.m. PST

The hill piece was homemade. I'm not sure about the fort. I bought it from another gamer and just spruced it up a bit. I was thinking it might be from JR Miniatures?

it is the JR fort, I have paint several over the years.

Nice paint job on the figures. Good job of giving a "hot, dry feel" to the table.

Very nice. Are you sure these are 15mm? They look like true 25mm.

Yup, they're all 15mm figures from Stone Mountain Miniatures. I love those figs. Stay tuned for the appearance of elements of the Arab harka.

I have been revising the 1986 Life in The Fourteenth, from a campaign system into a solo block system.

Ragbones, looks like fun! Live the table and minis. What mfgr is the ground cloth? I'm looking for a new one myself but it must be at least 6'x12' preferably a little bigger to overlap or put hills under it.

Jeff, thanks for the comments. The ground cloth is by Cigar Box. I bought it from a late friend's estate not the manufacturer. I don't know if the company makes larger cloths or special orders. Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Hello all! I am getting into genre and wondered if "Sand and Blood" was available?
