The slow death of a laptop is a sad thing indeed. Not only do I have to say farewell to Photoshop CS2 but I cannot find the password for either CS2 or an old copy of Elements so I had to splash out on the new Adobe Elements, which I thought I would give the once over by revamping some old photo's which I suspect edited with stand in software.

The results, actually not too bad for a cheap software such as Elements.

All the individual, "life sized" images of the Brits and Afghans, such as the ones below, can be seen on my Just Add Water Blog here:'

Things don't look too different from when I was in Afghanistan 18 years ago! Just give them AK 47 instead. The same show will go on there forever.

Thanks guys :)


Are those all Perry figures?

Yes and no! The Afghans were sculpted by the Perry's for Foundry many years ago.

The Brits are from Artizan Designs:
Available from Brigade Games in the USA:

The Afghans from the Wargames Foundry range:

Hope that helps you out?
