There have been some exciting developments in the world of Half Continent gaming...

1. DM Cornish posted an excellent drawing of a H-C ship, and color plates on uniforms at this page on his blog. I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak at these some time ago, and I am glad that they can be shared with everybody!

2. Tradgardmastare has started his own H-C gaming blog here. I look forward to sincerely imitating his progress!

3. The third book of the series, Factotum, has been released in Australia/New Zealand. It is set for US release on Nov 11 - I have already ordered it.

4. My second test order of 25mm minis - Old Glory - has shipped and will be here next week.


  1. Exciting developments...
    I look forward to hearing what you think of Old Glory figures...
    best wishes
    P.S sent of for Imperialist catalogue and had very pleasant email "chat" with the chap. Do you think they might be up for making a special H-C figure/s...

  2. Looking at the drawings on Cornish's page, I think that WSS uniforms would make a better "base" than SYW uniforms, which I presume that you'd already figured out.

  3. You are right Jeff - definitely WSS minis.

    I am not certain if Imperialist does free-lance sculpting, and I am going to say that I would prefer to not see a MBT product that was not under the direct supervision of Mr. Cornish or his representatives. A bit old-fashioned perhaps, but it is his IP and I would not want to challenge it.
