Against both my modest expectations and my recent indifferent form with the paintbrush I have comfortably completed the last addition to my Regular Infantry regiments for the Army of the Pendawar Presidency in the shape of the 76th (Hindoostan) Regiment ~
These chaps are Perry Miniatures of course and came replete with all the usual issues of sculpting and casting which I've touched on previously. The flags are from GMB Designs and the bases are from Warbases as ever. I experimented with a second GW Contrast paint for the Colonel's horse, sadly for me no more successfully than with my previous effort. I suspect that I must come under the 'old dogs, new tricks' rule in this respect, so I've passed the pots over to Phil to see if he can make better use of them than I did!
I still hope to be able to add further elements to this project in the shape of more cavalry for Typoo Bhyka's army. I've got my eye for those on some rather nice Warfare C18th Ottomans which might do a job. Also I'd like some additional baggage from Empress Miniatures, so I'll look at those later in the year I hope. Of course they would also do service then in Indian Mutiny games and even in the occasional visit to Rhanslistan...
A splendid looking addition to the project.ReplyDelete

Many thanks Helen.Delete
Another fine looking unit David…ReplyDelete
The white facings make for a nice bright uniform.
The horse looks fine to me… I think that the darker contrast colours work better… it will be interesting to see how Phil gets on with them.
All the best. Aly
Thanks Aly, as ever much appreciated. As to Phil, he can hardly do any worse than me with contrast paints!Delete
Another nice unit Mr.B. With regards to the horse, I don't know why you don't stick to your tried and tested Foundry triads which IMHO have always produced a more than passable finish.ReplyDelete
I hate painting horses and was hoping for a one process solution. Sadly it's an overrated product based on my experience.Delete
