Back in Colonial mode

Now the dust and debris of moving house is dissipating, I've had the chance to make a few shelves for the Man Cave and get some of my much-traveled figures out of their carrying boxes. 

Thankfully the move/transatlantic flight doesn't seem to have done much damage. The worst was to the upper deck of the civilian version of the Colonial steamboat, which lost its funnel and railings. I'd like to extend the upper deck in any case, so it's an ill wind that blows some good. Here's the same vessel in gunboat mode, with the Reviresco crew figures manning her. 

My Zanzibar slavers suffered chips and dings to their paintwork. It'll take a while to address the damage, but I'll get there. 

As you can see, I have quite a force now, ready to pose trouble for Belgian and British Colonial aspirations. I also have a number of white adventurer types to get into trouble on the Imperial frontiers.

I'm busy building a shed at the moment, but once it's done I hope to buy a sheet of fiberboard or similar to make a gaming table.

Great to see this getting back in action.

Back on your feet at last, Old Chap?

Jolly spiffing, what! Tally ho and toodle pip!

Thank you kindly, gentlemen! Yes, it's good to be back - although I won't be entirely happy until I get the new gaming table set up. So much to do around the house and garden, so small steps... ;)
