From RayR: French & Indian Wars Civilians (174 points)

Ray sends in another substantial entry of civilians for his ever-growing French & Indian Wars project.

These are mostly 15mm Freikorps figures with a sprinkling of unknown manufacturers.

Included are 16 armed civilians, 16 'men about town', doing various jobs, 18 ladies and 8 kids.

This group will give Ray a very tidy 174 points. Well done! Next for Ray is some Nine-Years War infantry so stay tuned for those.

From DaveD: 'I Am Your Huckleberry.' 28mm Earp Brothers and Doc Holliday (20 points)

Dave sends in this excellent set depicting the Earp brothers and their good friend Doc Holiday.

From Dave:
So in between large amount of prep and conversion work on Napoleonic commission at the moment, but have completed this little set of the The Earp brothers Virgil with badge, Morgan pistol in hand in the stripe suit - my favourite , Wyatt drawing , and Doc Holliday on the street howitzer. All 28mm from Black Scorpion Miniatures Tombstone range. Rather nice figures to paint up.

Brill stuff, Dave! I particularly like the pinstripe suit. These lads will net you 20 points, giddyup!

From KentG: 28mm ECW Commanded Shote (125 points)

This entry by Kent pretty much sees the last of a beautiful English Civil War collection that he began at the start of the Challenge (though he is murmuring about some artillery that he may try to do before the closing days).

 For the exception of two Bicorne figures these are all 28mm Wargames Foundry models.

These four bases of musketeers will give Kent 125 points. Again, lovely stuff.

ChristopherS: 15mm Turcoman Horse Archers (48 points)

Christopher sends in these very colourful Turcoman horse archers from his Ayyubid Crusades army.

These are 15mm castings from Legio Heroica painted with Foundry paints.

Very nice arid-looking goundwork here.

These two stands will give Christopher 48 points. Beautiful work!
