Forbodia's Court Photographer

Last Tuesday saw me in London for a business meeting with a client.  As the meeting went well and I had plenty of time before my train, I succumbed to temptation and paid a visit to the Tradition of London shop (http://www.traditionoflondon.com/).  As well as picking out another couple of ACW staff officers (£4 each from the rummage box), I decided to treat myself to a pre-painted figure.  The model in question is of Mathew Brady - famous for his photographs taken diring the ACW. 
My chap is his European relative, Mat Bradic and he has been appointed to the position of official photographer to the Court of King Boris.

A Tradition (and indeed traditional) red box.  Not cheap so a rare treat!

Are you sure it is not Sylvester McCoy's Doctor Who?

Ahhh, I had been wondering who was taking the pictures.

Don't get started on Doctor Who! It'll only lead to a debate over the definitive doctor.

It certainly helps to explain the quality of the photos! But not why they're in colour...

It says much about my approach to games - which is why my 6mm modern and 20mm WW2 forces include so many field kitchens, execution squads, political commissars, nuclear bombers etc etc.

Thanks. A brief but pleasant non-combatant interlude!
