Off the painting desk this evening is a 24 figure regiment of British from the China range but destined to see service elsewhere. These bell-topped shako, Wargames Foundry figures could see service during the First Afghan War, Indian Mutiny and even the Sikh Wars. Great figures with superb sculpting!
Marching out in their summer white trousers and yellow facings, these lads can muster as one of the many yellow faced regiments in the British arsenal deployed to India and the NW Frontier. Colours are yet to be granted.
With the completion of this regiment, I can now field two British infantry regiments (or companies depending on game scale) in Kevin's expanding mid-19th Century Northwest Frontier project. The earlier regiment can be seen here.
The sculpts for these Foundry figures were very enjoyable to paint but units of 24 is a bit much to tackle at one go. I much prefer 12-16 28mm figures at one time.
