I have been fumbling about for some inspiration for my first tabletop battle in some time ... and then I came across some pictures that I had used in a blog entry that I wrote quite some time ago.

I read this evening on the Tiny Metal Men blog the sad news that Larry Brom recently passed suddenly from a heart attack.
An former US Marine, Larry was the author of the very popular The Sword and The Flame rule set, amongst many others. He had a wide reaching impact on the community and will be sorely missed.

Five unpainted 15mm British Soldiers for use with any
Victorian or Victorian science fiction setting.
Set includes one each of five poses. I picked up 18 packs,
now just need some suitable officers and NCOs, and these
will be the basis for my Imperial Guard Praetorians in one
setting and also useful for VSF.
