So why the title for this entry? Well, I have spent too much money today. First, I made an order to Company D for some miniatures of the Missouri State Militia & southern guerrillas in 28mm since he has just now released the command and horse holders for both forces. Yes, I am getting into another gaming period...and in 28mm to boot (that should make Don & Blake happy.) I exchange some emails with Phil Murphy, the owner of Company D, and he told me that he will be expanding his line for the 28mm Civil War in Missouri line. Miniatures coming up will include Federal foot troops in the Western Theater look first, and following that, will be Native Americans troops on horse and foot (hopefully not in 'Hollywood' style), Jayhawkers, Redlegs, and Enrolled Missouri Militia, which can also double for guerrillas, or even triple for the Kansas militias during the 1864 Price's Raid.
But also, I pre-ordered a few painted 54mm figures from Black Hawk Toy Soldiers. Why, oh why, did they have to release these figures? I think you can figure out the two figures that I ordered along with a certain 1932 Ford V-8, (even though it is missing the interesting hood ornament), especially if you have been reading my blog entries of old. Unfortunately, there is no certain retired Texas Ranger figure to go with the figures that I ordered. OK, first a hint of which figures I order:
|The same car that the Black Hawk toy car is designed on|
Yeah, there is no fooling you all...here are a few pictures of the car and outlaws that I ordered:
|A 1932 Ford V-8 B-400 that was stolen from Robert F. Rosborough of Marshall, Texas. The thief is standing in front of the car.|
|A failed actress, gun moll posing at the grill of Rosborogh's stolen vehicle.|
|A couple of mad dog, small timers in love in front of Rosborgh's stole car.|
