Determined to crack on with the additional horsemen for the army of Typoo Bhyka I have been working on the second such new addition. These are once again the venerable Wargames Foundry Sikh Wars figures, armed on this occasion with tulwaar and dhal. I found the figures' pose rather staid for wild tribal horsemen and so decided to render them as a Regular cavalry regiment. Again the unit comprises three bases of three figures each ~
The third new acquisition of horsemen for the project are the newer Perry Miniatures Afghan cavalry from their Victoria's Little Wars range. They are not next in the queue to pass under the brush though, that honour falls to an E.I.C. Regular Infantry unit for the 1st brigade.
I have acquired some cavalry now for this side of the project in the form of Trent Miniatures British Light Dragoons in tropical service helmet, supplemented by some Foundry British Light Dragoons to serve as the CinC's HQ Guards. I also ordered some Native Sepoy cavalry from AW Miniatures to round off their fighting side of the project, and they duly arrive yesterday. At first glance they are closer to the Trent Miniatures British Light Dragoons than to the Foundry Light Dragoons, but they will be fine at table top gaming distance in GHQ I'm sure.
Further fine fellows added to the collection.ReplyDelete
Thanks Phil! See you in just over a week.Delete
Excellent work once again and the simple white, blue and red clothing works a treat.ReplyDelete
Thanks SteveJ, can't beat red, white & blue!Delete
Glad to see your cracking on again Mr.B.ReplyDelete
One dies one's utmost to keep in motion.Delete
Another good looking unit and flexible to a number of periods although I suspect you are less inclined than I am to mix and match collectionsReplyDelete
Thanks Matt. You are in the main correct, but all Typoo's force will easily fit into Mutiny games, hence the use of the last of my Mutiny base mix.Delete
Lovely looking cavalry Jonathan!ReplyDelete
Jonathan? Drinking so early in the day?Delete
