Hi there! My name is Matt, and I am just getting into 10mm wargaming. My father is a wargamer, and I have experience as a scale modeller. I want to try my hand 10mm Colonials, particularly French Foreign Legion, the Boxer Rebellion, and the Anglo-Zulu War. I am from Western Mass, and hope to meet some more 10mm wargamers!

Well done on your choice of "the One True Scale" - 10mm.

Well done on your choice of supplier - Pendraken. Great company, and lovely people.

Welcome Matt,

You will find Pendraken's customer service is Excellent. Probably second to none. 

The French Foreign legion range is quite small, but you can find additional suitable figures in the 19th Century South Pacific war of 1979-1884.

If we are talking Colonials when did the British Army wear white pith helmets and red tunics?   I have always fancied having some of those so are they in the Pendraken range?
