Most kind of you recruits are always welcome. They will fill out The Portuguese forces and will balance the sides somewhat better.

Reinforcements for East Afrika or   Lurland?


I shall put together a small parcel of these 45-50mm Schneiders to send up to you (probably next week) as a small thank you for the recent figures sent.


 I have fuctionally repaired muskets etc on some, enough to make a rifle section of ten men, three assorted officers, a settler or two and four fierce Lurlandish natives with bows, spear and  very small axes.


All from  Schnieder Moulds numbered as set out on the blog post. Enjoy!

MarkManof Tin,
A kind offer indeed. These homecasts are splendid. I employed some as WW1 Portuguese troops in Africa in my recent game.

What a splendid find, the tricorn wearing cyclists are excellent!

Knowing your interest in Scandi troops and bicycle troops, look at the tricorne WW1 swedes on bicycles in this interesting article here in the sample edition of the BFSS 2001 journal

I have been casting some more Schneider figures similar to the ones (I have listed the mould numbers  on my blog post) used in your East Africa WW1 game https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2021/04/14/april-first-casting-sessions-2021/


If you need anymore of these colonial figures, I can cast some more on my next session and post them up.  I have drilled, pinned / wired and repaired any short rifles with functional repairs. Lots of the 'antique' or 'vintage' ones that I see for sale have these weapon ends missing, either play amaze or poor mass casting.


The Natives / Red Indians are tricky to get the bow / tomahawk weapons fully cast but I will do some repairs on the 90%+  castings functional and stout enough for gaming.

A stylish game - especially with the 2D palm trees.

Thank you very much Marko!
I hope we attract or make contact with other Flats gamers or attract gamers to paint more Flats.

Is there a central point / thread for Wargaming with Flats? I notice you have a useful section in the links.


I know of several U.K. Gamers / bloggers who dabble in Flats from time to time including Alan  Gruber
