    I did an army list for the Tai Ping for FoB3 and took some pics  of my 15mm Tai Pings.  They will take on my Manchu, British and, if I use my Crimean War figures, French.

    I really must educate myself about the Taiping Rebellion. I’m not reminded of it often enough, given how disproportionately obscure it is here in the West.

    So, thanks for the reminder. The blog post was informative and the figures are neat.

    Thanks Rhoderic, the Tai Ping story takes some beating.

    Too hard to find a Tai Ping religious leader giving comunion with three cups of tea and three bowls of rice.

    Very nice, OB.

    This too shall pass

    Indeed, a huge conflict that deserves more attention from us wargamers. I have yet to make any productive use of my own investment in it three years ago.

    Bloody Big BATTLES!

    Thanks Vincent.

    Chris, you are sitting on a treasure chest of information.  I hope you can find someone to help you by translating the books.  An approach to universities that teach Mandarin and the Chinese Embassy might bear fruit.  Best of luck with it all.

    Whew.  It’s not a list for Rebels and Patriots, as I find those far, far too tempting as a nice little self contained project.  Especially since you’re always kind enough to include manufacturers of your figures, to make it easier for us to join you.  I seem to remember the Perrys did an article or series in Wargames Illustrated many years ago, which piqued my interest?  I could be wrong; it was a few decades ago…

    As a side note, how you find FoB3?  Have you tried it yet?  Better/different from the second edition?

    Thanks Tony.

    Yes they did and dear me, it was decades ago.  Time marches and luckily we are still marching alongside.

    I’d say FoB3 is better.  Not that I thought there was anything wrong with FoB2 which is where I came in.  FoB3 is more streamlined to my mind.  I’m currently writing up my first game with it which was a Crimean War one.

    A couple more Tai Ping pics here.  This is a veteran skirmish unit of swordsmen and jingals.  I’m going to have three of these.
