A mystery package arrived a few weeks ago which turned out to have been sent by Bob Cordery (http://wargamingmiscellany.blogspot.com/). To my (continuing) surprise it contained the 20 1/32 scale ACW figures he bought only a few weeks ago! On investigation, Bob tells me that as he has amassed a fair number of old and new Britains 'Deetail' figures which he is using to build the Cordeguayan Army. As such these Conte figures are surplus to requirements, so with characteristic generosity he thought I'd be able to make use of them.
I'm not sure yet how I'll use these chaps, but it is likely that Forbodian will offer them onward passage to yet another fictional state to serve as the basis of a new army.
