The Bishop of Leicester's Guard

Continuing the Humberstone Militia series the next up is the Bishop of Leicester's Personal Guard. These chaps armed uniformed in the blue serge uniform of the British Army Parade Dress which they acquired from the Leicestershire regimental stores. Then the uniform had cuffs and collars added in pale blue, the colour of Canterbury and armed with Long Barrelled Lee-Enfield Rifles. With the Bishop of Leicester being a believe of the Anglican League cause he allied himself rather early with the Leicester City's Socialist Council as it is better to fight the Edwardite forces from a position of strength and fight with rather than against the city. These fellows have been at the forefront of some the attacks against the King's forces, being some of the best troops the city has, but this is more down to believe in a cause than any real military training. Everyone in the unit is a Great War veteran though and this has helped the unit in the past. So here they are.

Also here are the first prints or rather test prints of the Event Cards for Went the Day Well for the June Partizan game. I have printed then on 220 gram card and they seem to have the right "feel". I have to say that I am rather pleased with the way they have come out and though they are not exactly aligned, something I have now sorted, I think that they fit the bill. There are sixteen different cards which should be more than enough and I am going to get a slightly heavier card and try then out to see if there is any real differences.

  5. Bright uniforms just right for marching up and down. Keep the men active lots of brass to polish. That's the ticket!

    Quite concerned that your men will be playing card games and not square bashing. Discipline I tell you that's the key. Worked for us in the Sudan, worked for us in the trenches. Discipline I say Discipline!

    (Out of character.... Everything looks top notch)

  7. The cards look very professional, as do the Bishop's guards, though they (the guards) look a tad Victorian. Are there any modern minded bishops who favour khaki serge and tin hats? That's the problem with these high church types, all lace and frippery. :)
