Indian Mutiny British Infantry

As a change of pace, 24 Wargames Foundry British hit the painting desk.  After participating in one of Kevin's mid-19th century colonial games (Pasha in Egypt), I figured it might be a fun distraction to paint a unit or two for this era.  While these figures are listed in the Wargames Foundry catalog as Indian Mutiny British, seeing action during the 1st Afghan War would not be out of reason.  Decision on flag to carry is still undetermined but it will be one of the Royal regiments with blue facings.  Hopefully, these lads will see action in one of Kevin's upcoming colonial games.

  3. Great looking Brits, I do love the stylish beards!

    One day, I'd love to see a shot of your lead mountain. It must be a magnificent sight.

    1. Thanks, Monty! I like the big moustaches and overgrown sideburns on these fellas as well.

  4. They do look very cool - sort of "toy soldierish" too.

    1. Their stiff "at attention" posing does suggest a toy soldier presentation, doesn't it?

    2. Yes, but in a very "Classic" way - their Red Coats adding to the nostalgic look.

    1. Soren, thanks for the comment! These Foundry Brits do have the classic look as others have mentioned. I guess I did not think about it much until pointed out. I like the facial expression on these chaps too!
