Archive added - Colonial NW Frontier

Thank you to those who commented on the Italian Wars archive page that I posted last time.
Buoyed by the seeming interest in past projects and collections, I have added a new archive page for the Colonial / NW Frontier project I built up in 2005-6.
See navigation link on right hand side of this page.

This collection was for games using the popular rule-set The Sword and The Flame (TSATF), and centred around the activities of the garrison at the fictional town of Ghabazaar.
Many tales of "derring-do" were recounted in the pages of The Ghabazaar Gazette, and the officers mess and clubhouse pavilion were awash with rumours about the enemy, led by the wicked Osman Bin Lina.

Here, a couple of sample pictures from one of the frequent ambushes on The Ghabazaar Express as it enters The Khyber Pass.

More to come soon...


  1. Some might sneer at "The Sword and the Flame" but it almost always produces a good exciting game.

  2. Great collection Phil. I agree with Jeff... TSATF is a good set of rules and has stood the test of time, although our little group hasn't played Colonial for a while - might have to remedy that soon, and this may be just the inspiration we needed!

  3. Very nice Phil, as we'd expect from you! Didn't realise you once collected this period, it was once a soft spot of mine many years ago using Minifigs and similar 25mm.
