John Jenkins Design have been around for a while but I don't recall seeing them at the London Show before, maybe they were there but tucked away in a dark corner. Anyway last month they had a stand in a big bright area where I had expected to find my old friends from White Tower Miniatures and I have to say I was quite taken with some of their dioramas.
I assume this to be the Battle of Abu Klea because it depicts Mahdists rushing the Gardner gun manned by the Naval Brigade at the corner of the British square...........
.........but taking a closer look at the gun I think it looks more like a Gatling. Still, a very nice piece of work which deserves better than a bit of nit picking from an old fogey like me.
Still in the Sudan we find this rather fine little vignette of Gen. Gordon's last moments at Khartoum.
And finally, the Highlanders storm the French lines somewhere in North America.
I don't collect modern white metal models like these but there are plenty of people who do so these few pics are for the benefit of those unable to travel to the shows, but also for those like me who need inspiration for conversion ideas and wargame scenarios.
