Colonel Cavendish in Zanzibar : Part 1

Finally following a long boat trip Colonel Cavendish has made it with his Company to The island of Zanzibar. Home to the Sultan, much treasure, bandits, slavers, occasional wild beasts and hopefully his fortune !



I plan to play a number of scenarios in this series until I get bored or run out of figures to paint....

    1. I am getting quicker at the comic strip, although I was a bit skimpy on the text, think the secret is in the template and I am getting closer to something that works.

  3. More colonial goodness. If only it was as easy as they said at home in Blighty

    1. A stiff brandy from Cavendishs' butler will no doubt bring him back to full health and ready to set off across the island๐Ÿ˜€

  5. These are just fantastic! I look forward to reading more of the Colonel's adventures! Can I ask what software you use to create these pages? Is it Publisher? They are awesome!

    1. Thanks S, I have tried to ween myself entirely off laptop to iPad , which takes a bit of getting used to. The App is something called Comic Life I think, pretty easy but takes a bit of getting used to, I'm getting quicker.

  6. Sounds like a lot fun and looks stunnning as normal. All of Englands sons should be encouraged to head to Darkest Shores to seek adventure whilst looking like Stuart Grainger in his youth.

    1. Thanks John......and they should always take a well prepared butler. I should say if you haven't seen some of The Colonel previous adventures in and around Cumbria...he isn't all good, frequently drinks to excess and has many of the worst colonial tendencies !

    It reminds me of a trip to the newsagent on a Saturday morning to fetch my copy of Victor :-)

    1. Cheers.....light relief. Writing them makes me chuckle and occasionally laugh, if I managed to make one other person out there smile it is probability worth it ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Nice one.

    But this reminds me that I've a IHMN Imperial German Company, somewhere... One of those, 'now I know I had them this time last year, but where did I put them - Somewhere safe, I know. But Where?!'

    Also, after spotting Dave D's blog post about Stockton show and having a game place reserved for me - Do I need to reserve a place in your game? And if so, please do so. Thanks.

    1. No need to book my game is designed to play through in 30 to 40 mins. We'll make sure you get a slot. As for the German company they are probably under the box labelled 'Camels'.๐Ÿ˜€
