  1. How big will your company be when finished? Which rules set are you using? can we call this "Ride or Die?"

  2. I think there are 12 mtd figures - these "got lost" and ended up in another box turning up during the inventory - I have yet to find the rest :) I have Chasseurs d`Afrique, Spahis Maroccaine and Saharinne units also - as yet not inventoried :) back home again now, so that is it for a while as far as counting and listing is concerned.
