28mm Tcho-Tcho Men

Some Tcho-Tcho men arrived by Royal Mail yesterday, from Black Cat Bases.The Tcho-Tchos are a race of cannibals, best described as nasty, brutish and short, driven from the Tsang plateau in Tibet to the dark fastnesses of Burma, at least according to various writers of the latter-day Lovecraft Circle.

On the second turn, Sgt. Tam Fraser arrived with the X-Weapon Team (a heavy "laser"), via Landrover.  The 'rover was only used as an entry point, given that in previous g
