Pictures

I thought the Geneva Convention banned these??? The obligatory overhead view.
Haven't done this in a while. Pretty fun, actually. I thought about the color of the AT-4 launcher, but in all the pictures I could find it was olive. And it does bring some much needed contrast into the picture.

Notes

This is a slightly different sort of list. There are obviously no point values in FoF for one. Also, this is the roster for my for our FoF campaign Alpha Sierra September. As the campaign progressed, the fate of these figures was be recorded here. The campaign is now over and the sorely battered unit has finally been pulled out of the line.

The combined casualty count includes permanent injuries only. I gave up trying to maintain count for troopers in the field hospital...

4th Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment is a Territorial Army formation, but they have served abroad with the regular elements of their regiment. All mistakes, errors and omissions herein are mine.

P.S. I've no idea if the YORKS really have bagpipers or not (probably not). Maybe it's just Sgt. McNulty's hobby.
