More trivia (painting, rules, etc.)

I spent the weekend painting up those Battle Honors Arabs on Foot (4 of them) plus a Brigade Arab leader. (I noticed that OldGlory15s now has photos of the Battle Honors WWI figs on their website.)

Mostly, though I put sand and stuff on the bases on some of the many of my WWI figs that have plain bases. All in preparation for my big (read 3 foot by 5 foot) solo game of later this week. I'd like to do a Mesopotamia Insurrection 1920 game using Crossfire or Price of Glory, but I only own three building models and I only have one unit of painted Arabs! (That just wouldn't do.)

Still haven't settled on rules to use. They have to work with small forces on a small table. Crossfire will probably do, with some mods.

More later

Whoops! Oh well... Austrians? Germans? Whose to know... (except me, darn it...)
Mostly I've just been dying to game Mesopotamia, but with other games I haven't had enough Turks to do it...
Expect to hear more about Balad when I do my 1920 insurrection game someday!
