Or……….Blowin’ my own trumpet!!!!
Note from Annie – “Oink Oink! These snuffly oinkers are bound to make you smile! As well as being adorable, this kit makes a great bit of scenics but also so nice bits of scatter to duck and fight around in a game. Farm Seige! See also, LOTS MORE PIGS!”
This set contains 2 pigs and 6 bits of farm terrain. Really crisp detail, the top quality we have come to expect from Ristul’s!
Just like Annie said, these have gotta be the crispest terrain pieces you can buy! I also added the pack of pigs to the parcel, you always need more bacon don’t you????
I started painting these handsome looking fellows back in March during the Challenge, but didn’t get around to finishing them in time to enter them. They were finished off early last month and featured as the only musket armed unit in the Mor…

Morale was very high as on 29th February there was a major engagement during which the Tangier Horse charged out of the city and captured Ahmad al Khādir ibn ‘Ali Ghaylān, generally known to English-speakers as Gayland’s personal standard.
Once Teviot and his 500 troops had crossed Jew’s River, they encountered around 3,000 Moroccan warriors commanded once again by Gayland. The English forces rapidly attacked and drove them off. They pursued the fleeing enemy, but it quickly became apparent that this was a trap as a much larger force (approx. 8000) were waiting to ambush them. The broken terrain was ill-suited for the British to form their battle ranks, and the engagement quickly descended into hand-to handing fighting in which the English were overwhelmed by sheer weight-of-numbers. Teviot attempted to rally his men on the top of Jew’s Hill.
The 4th May was the most disastrous day experienced by the garrison during its entire occupation of Tangiers. Only around thirty of the five hundred who had marched out escaped back to the safety of Tangier.
Several months ago, infact last year!. These beauties arrived in the post from my good pal Loki , from Brigantes Studio. He very generously painted these figures up for me for free!!!
Its taken me an age to get them based up and photographed, so I can only apologise to Loki, for not showing them off any sooner. (I did get a telling off, when we met up at Salute, in April!)
So here they are in all their glory, The Tangier regt, later known as The Queen’s regt or by their nickname, Kirke’s Lamb’s.
The figures are all from Barry Hilton’s fantastic, Warfare Miniatures.
