Forgot to say: the other week I was playing around with the map terrain types and the "personality" of the various Peoples of The River..
Certain tribes will be woodland/cultivar peoples. These will be the main Player tribes.
The swamps will be the home of renegades and exiles.
The deepest forests will be the home of the Ama-Pygmy.
To the North is the land of the Great King and his feared "regiments". According to the books he can field 40,000 warriors....
The fierce, slave-raiding Islamised Bomongo in the North East are famous for their cavalry and swordsmen (non-canon, but what the hey...).
Interfering French to the North West. Nosey Germans to the South East and South West.
Still lots to on the Project but I got the Hausa Police painted up a couple of weeks back too (forgot to post?) so apart from any Bomongo cavalry, more pygmies, some more "personality" and distinctive tribal folk am pretty much nearly there for basic bods fighting bods.
Once I get the Play Table free of half-painted "ruins" I'll produce a demonstration game. Or maybe use the ruins in the game? Who knows...
Back to work Sunday.
