In which I blog about my miniature wargaming and whatever else takes my interest!

I have casualty figures for every period except I think, WW2. For my SYW and ancient games I have been chastised for not having enough and using casualty caps instead. So I have also completed some casualty figures for both the Coalition and Taliban. I know these cause issues for some, but the recovery of casualties was an important objective for Coalition troops. It also seems hypocritical to suddenly become sensitive now.
These are all from Elheim Figures as usual. For the Canadians I had to settle for US Marine figures. You can see the prominent groin armour that makes using many American figures problematic.
Since they come with decent stands cast on I didn't need to do any extra basing.
For the Afghan casualties I have these civilians:
A runny daub of brick red for blood was used since the one sculpt has obvious holes in his shalwar kameez, but I didn't bother on the rest since I didn't want to get too ghoulish.
Tea is my drug of choice. My idea of a party is a rousingly good wargame with my friends. I finance my tea, miniature soldiers and book addiction by using chemistry to coat precision machined pieces of steel. I am also employed by the Canadian Armed Forces as a Cadet Instruction Cadre Officer.
