I have been thinking about Captain Verbeek, Cavenderia and Bizercca quite a bit recently and here are my thoughts. Captain Verbeek has been seen in the Sudan (see Steve the Wargamer's Blog in my list), India (see General Pedigree's Blog in my list), he will eventually be dispatched to Afristan (my apologies to Bluebear Jeff, model is painted but never sent will try to get him in the mail this week) and now it is my design to see him campaign with Cavenderian troops in Bizercca.
If you have seen my other neglected blog http://www.cavenderia.blogspot.com/ you will know that Cavenderia is located in what we in the real world call Croatia and her 18th Century enemy is Bizercca (Tunisia). My plan is to create a fiction based upon Cavenderian, Venetian and Espanola political envolvement with Tunisia starting in approximately 1866. This fiction will borrow from the history of French invasion of Tunisia and the British conflicts with Egypt and the Sudan. I have painted the Captain in various scales and have planned to dispatch him soon.
My goal is to start blogging, painting and gaming the Captain's memoirs again. So with out further ado my plan for blogging: I am going to try and balance fictional acounts, painting updates, rules review and battle reps publishing at least every two weeks starting today. I will start next post with some background information on the political climate of the region.
