The End

Many men died on both sides.

Both thought they were doing the right thing.

Both were brave.

When it was all over, both were Americans again.

And the rocks were still there.

Blue versus Gray

Men loyal to this state said they were fighting for their state, for their rights to do as they had always done.

Men in blue said they were fighting for the freedom of others, men should not be slaves.

But many of the men in blue owned slaves too.

Many men in gray were also opposed to slavery.

It's always a sad day when brother fights brother.

Three Rocks and the ACW

War came again to the three rocks.

The town was larger.

This time the uniforms were gray and not blue.

It was the other side that wore blue.

Both sides said they were fighting for freedom and for people's rights.

Both sides were right and both sides were wrong.

War and Rocks

Plenty of Americans died.

But the Army stayed intact.

And the war continued.

But the rocks did not change.

They were even fought over as they had been in times past.

The Americans won and the British left.

Hello to all my readers in Italy!

Three Rocks

The English did not stay forever. 

After centuries of living here, the English became Americans.

And the Americans fought the English.

The land of the three rocks saw plenty of combat.

The Americans fought hard.

And the English did too.

The Thunderbird gone, the three rocks were fought over by men.

Indians versus Spanish.

The Spanish did not stay long.

But the English did.

The Spanish were looking for gold and silver.

The English were looking for land.

And they found good land here.

And they took it.

The Saga of the Tree Rocks

It was just a pile of rocks but the pterosaurs gathered there.

Giant flying reptiles.

They would squabble over the best perch.

And swoop in low over the ground.

Until man came.

And he would perch on the rocks.

African Figures

The wall in the back is made out of logs tied together, they are actually supposed to be used as rafts.

The figures have a spear, a shield, a club and a pole for the rafts. 

There is also a rifle and a pith helmet.  The rifle here has had the sling broken off.

Even with only three poses the placement of the weapons and shields can make for a pretty good variety.

The guy in Western attire is designed to hold the rifle as the hunter, but he can hold a spear as well.

The sling allows this guy to act as a gun bearer.

MPC made African people in both ring hand and regular toy soldier versions.

This is the ring hand version.

As far as I know there are only three poses.

One in Western style clothing.

One with arms down.

And as you can see in the center rear, one with one arm up and one arm down.
