  1. Something ya'll missed on Dave's Ciaphas Cain 40k pick. Those novels are loosely based on the Flashman Papers by George MacDonald Fraser. Flashman (an officer in the British army) is a cowardly braggart who somehow always ends on the winning side of every situation. He travels the world getting involved with many historical situations from the 1840-1890. He starts of in Afghanistan and even makes his way to the battles of Little Big Horn and Rorke's Drift.

    1. Yes indeed. Those novels sound like Flashman to a T. Thanks for the comment. I need to investigate Flashman myself.

  2. I'm just listening the podcast from Spain and have reached the part where you talk about the SCW. In 28mm you have the nicest range around by Empress Miniatures and in 15 mm by Peter Pig. As for rules, I can't recommend more the SCW supplement by TooFatLardies for Chain of Command, it can be downloaded from free. Hope this helps. Great podcasts Jay, perfect to listen when I paint. Thanks for it indeed

    1. Yes, both ranges were brought to my attention in other places. Having looked at both I agree. CoC is a great set of rules as well. Thanks for the comment.

  3. Just been catching up on episodes and really enjoyed this one (like the Top 5 Movies). Anibal Invictus has drawn attention to the Chain of Command Espana supplement (which is very good indeed and has a wealth of info even if you don't use the Chain of Command rules) but thought I'd mention Minairons 1/72 SCW range - they have their own website but they are also available via The Plastic Soldier Company
