The Case of the Missing Lynx

Missing Lynx Found! 
This mascot of the Ballyfoole Musketeers, seen here with an officer of that regiment, has been spotted.

Meanwhile, Lord Burleigh Throckmorton (in the red coat), Duke of Cummerbund, Major General of Grand Thidwick forces, is seen here consulting with Colonel Bailey (in the green coat) of the Ballyfoole Musketeers. 

While more tribesmen gather in the hills.


Tricorne officers and cat are Foundry. The Pathans are Old Glory, if I recall correctly.

Warmly seconded -except for the 'modelling project' I'm retired: you know, old people enjoy watching youngsters doing what they can no longer do themselves... :)

Cheers,

Thanks, guys! The comments are always appreciated.

"Youngsters", ha ha! Thanks, Jean-Louis, I do feel young.
David, I did take a look at the links in your previous post regarding flags. Interesting and not at all what I had imagined Indian flags would look like for the most part. I was expecting something more like the elephant flag from Sri Lanka, very decorative.

I really like the lynx and mounted officers. I bet the Ballyfooles are delighted to have him back!

On an unrelated note to this posting, I have a little invasion that Mieczyslaw is dealing with and would like to use the green flag Grenzers that have been used in a tabletop battle in the past.

I would like to write them in as doing 'training' maneuvers in Mieczyslaw then caught in the crossfire between my Russian and Prussian Imagi-Nations.

Murdock, I think you might be referring to O'Ryan's Hunters (or Jaegers) of Ballyfoole, commanded by Captain O'Ryan?
